verybody needs help sometimes.
One man asked the Internet for help when he was having problems with his girlfriend. But instead of posting his message into a relationship help chat group as intended, he accidentally posted his drama into a fantasy football Reddit thread.
Some responses were hilarious and poked fun at the original poster. Others actually came to the man's aid with some thoughtful and helpful advice, despite the fact that he posted the comment in the wrong group.
The poster asked about some issues he'd been having with his girlfriend.
He said that his long-term girlfriend was constantly late for dates and other events. He’d schedule a dinner with friends, and she’d show up hours late after the food was cold, the movie was over, or his friends were gone. Seems like a pretty annoying habit, no?
But he obviously was with the woman for a reason. He struggled to weigh the pros and cons of staying with her as her chronic lateness was starting to weigh on the relationship. Breaking up with someone for being late seems petty, but when it starts to happen every single time you hang out, it’s exhausting. Mistakes happen, but constantly disregarding someone’s time over and over is rude.
Reddit user Chilo69 responded with an answer that was half advice, half fantasy football joke.
Translated from football terms, he said, if you break up with her and she starts dating one of your friends, would you be upset? If so, it might be worth trying to work out your problems and seeing if she can make some changes that pay off in the long haul.
But Reddit user Jackcatalyst had some issues with Chilo69's advice.
They said that just because you train someone to make changes for a couple of weeks, it doesn’t mean that the player is going to change forever. At the end of the day, they’re the same person with the same tendencies, and will eventually go back to their natural ways.
Reddit user Waltzer64 didn't beat around the bush.
“Make the drop. Next gf will be better ROS,” they wrote, meaning that another girlfriend would suit the original poster better for the rest of the season that his current one.
More people chimed in with some fantasy football advice.
They debated whether or not he should let his girlfriend *cough* player *cough* go and then pick her back up again in a couple weeks. Most agreed that that’s too risky of a play.
