All of us have been jealous at one point or another, right? Whether it’s about a friend who drives an awesome car or people who are super rich, or those irritating folks who always seem happy…
And don’t even get us started about those uber annoying types who can eat whatever they want and always have a six-pack.
But there are extremes of jealousy, like when your jealous partner bans you from watching Game of Thrones because there are too many “topless scenes”.
Yep. That’s what happened to a guy whose green-eyed girlfriend barred him from watching the chartbuster program. His girlfriend said it contained way too many naked women.
Game of Thrones fans, scroll down to read more!
There are loads of Game of Thrones addicts out there.
And rightly so. It’s an awesome series.
Now, if you’re a serious lover of the program, a fellow Thronee needs your help and advice…
Jealousy gets us sometimes, right?
When you feel jealous, the jealousy feels like a demon that dominates everything. It rips through you like a lightning bolt.
We’ve all been jealous of that pretty friend who just looks so perfect. All the darned time.
She’s just so hot. All the guys stare her up and down if they have the opportunity to be in her presence.
But you, on the other hand, might as well be a goddamn lamppost. None of the guys notice you in the club if your drop-dead-gorgeous pal is there too.
Oh, then there are the rich kids.
Like that guy or gal who get to live privileged lives because their parents are loaded.
They get a new car, like, every month – or a new outfit. It’s so unfair.
Jealousy sucks, right?
It feels like you have a monster growing inside you that you can’t control.
In fact, jealousy is the most dangerous emotion known to man.
But jealousy can be a healthy thing.
Because it shows you care. You know you’re in love when you feel humongous pangs of jealousy about that special someone.
One girlfriend loves her boyfriend a tad too much, though.
A hopping mad guy divulged how his girlfriend has banned him from watching Game of Thrones because she’s jealous of the topless women in the raunchy scenes. Oops.
Sure, Game of Thrones contains no end of butts, wieners and boobs…
As well as some pretty graphic, cover-your-eyes-up sex scenes.
But surely, it’s not bad enough to ban your boyfriend from watching it?
This gal wasn’t just playing about. She genuinely wasn’t happy at all about her boyfriend watching the show.
The guy is thought to be from Norway.
He revealed all on Reddit, asking users if he was being unreasonable.
The guy also posted on Reddit, saying how they’d ended up fighting after watching just one episode together.
According to the guy, his girlfriend complained, “there’s nothing but t**s in the series” and accused him of this being the only reason he watched it.
What an accusation to make, huh?
When the boyfriend insisted that his girlfriend was jealous of him watching the series…
His girlfriend admitted she was “jealous of the t**s.”
He added: “She won’t talk to me now. Am I in the wrong here?”
In the thread, he claimed she’d stopped talking to him.
The guy stated that they’d rowed over the big hit fantasy series. And since then, they weren’t communicating anymore.
The Reddit community, as you can imagine, got stuck in, airing their views.
A Reddit-user told the guy that teen girls can be “emotional” and “jealous.”
“This. Teen girls can be very emotional and jealous.
“However, some women can be too. My husband’s ex would not allow him to look at manga, watch anime, tv shows, movies or anything with even scantily clad women.
“Meanwhile, she was off screwing her ex-boyfriend every weekend who she is now married to and also divorcing because she is cheating AGAIN. She was in her 30s at the time, and now is nearly 50 doing the same shit.”
Someone else declared:
“She needs to grow up. Do not cave in or alter your behavior for this. Do not humor this. Or where does it end? No female friends, that’s where it ends. If she’s jealous, that’s her problem.
“TL;DR: no, of course, you aren’t in the wrong.”
Others called his girlfriend immature, urging him to dump her.
One user posted, “You have to break it off, her mental health is NOT your responsibility.
“It might seem cruel but for real it’s best for both of you if you leave.”
Another Reddit-poster agreed, saying…
“… there are underlying issues here that are making her jealous over this nonsense. Perhaps she feels insecure about her body and you aren’t complementive enough to help her feel less insecure.
“Or perhaps there was some infidelity in the past. Or perhaps I’m just projecting. You guys should have a good hard look at why it’s okay for her to watch magic mike and not okay for you to watch GoT.”
Others pointed out:
“It only gets worse from here bro, get out while the gettin’s good.”
One Redditer said:
“I will never understand this kind of petty jealousy in relationships, especially if the relationship is otherwise healthy and secure.
“I think part of it is that I’m just not a jealous person, so I don’t get it. But me and my fiancé watch GoT together and actively discuss who’s hottest. I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
Is this advice, or do we sense a bit of bragging going on here?
The guy reckons that his girlfriend is guilty of double standards.
This is because she made him watch Magic Mike with her before.
Users put the girlfriend’s shocking reaction down to jealousy, saying, “That’s a new level of jealousy. I’m in awe yet saddened by your situation. You’re definitely not in the wrong.”
It wasn’t long before others were admitting their own exes’ jealousies.
“I actually had an ex (male) that was jealous of lyrics to a song I liked…” revealed another Reddit-user.
That’s kinda’ weird.
And this Redditer shared that:
One of their co-worker’s wives made them delete Rust because the characters in it are naked.
A third shared their own experience, writing:
“My ex used to pester me to find out what celebrities I thought were attractive, but considering the first time I said one she then refused to watch anything with them in and hated it when I did, I stopped.
“Eventually she convinced me she’d mellowed on it, and I settled for saying which of two I prefer if she gave me options, same thing happened with them.”
Then there was another pretty shocking declaration.
“I had an ex who would ask if I thought an actress in whatever movie we were watching, was attractive.”
“The first time, I said yes. She got mad. I was a piece of shit and cheating. She would ask anytime we watched a movie, if I said no, I was a lying a piece of shit. If I said yes, I was an unfaithful piece of shit. It got old real quick.”
Is this for real?
Most Reddit-users were on the same page when it came to dishing out advice to the guy.
Most were in agreement that the anonymous guy should end it with his girlfriend.
One posted: “I’ve been in a relationship with a crazy boyfriend that was much like your girlfriend.
“The second I ended it, I felt so extremely relieved. It was like I could breathe again when I never realized I was holding my breath.
“Trust me you’ll feel the same. Don’t let her control you.”
You tell ’em.
Reddit-users felt that the girlfriend’s reaction should be taken seriously.
They believed she needed to seek professional help, saying, “Dude, this is the kinda level of jealousy that needs to be addressed by a professional preferably and a willing subject at the least, and it looks like she isn’t a willing subject to work on her issues.
“If she isn’t, she is just going to keep trying to control every little aspect of your life that you let her, and you already let her control too much in my personal view.”
Someone thought that she was projecting her experience of watching TV and movies onto him.
“The double standard is the most worrying thing. She’s obviously projecting her experience of watching TV and movies onto you.”
We think they have a point, right?
The comments didn’t stop there.
People felt pretty strongly about the fact that his girlfriend was emotionally abusing him.
Another piped up, saying:
“I mean what on earth would his fiancé think of Porn if she can’t handle HBO? Rewatching it with my current boyfriend and honestly, I don’t even feel like there are THAT many boobs.
“And it’s usually relevant (-ish enough) anyway to not be like gross amounts of nudity for a TV show. I mean later on, there are whole episodes without nudity!!”
The poor fella.
If the guy’s girlfriend is jealous about a darned fantasy series, we can’t imagine how she’d react if he dared so much as look at another gal on a night out. He’d be dead meat.
Yep, Game of Thrones is full of nudity…
But there’s a lot more to the program than that, right?
