Imagine this...

A guy you've been dating for a few months finds out that you briefly dated one of your close male friends about a year ago. This occurred several months before you had even met your current boyfriend. Nothing has happened romantically between you and your close friend for so long now that it now feels like ancient history, and you have dated a number of other guys since..

But upon finding this out, your boyfriend proceeds to act like a small child, literally... He has a hissy fit and runs away into the night, not to be seen or heard from again until the following day. For the next several weeks your boyfriend uses this triviality as ammunition against you every chance he gets; so much so that you engage in heated arguments on more than one occasion. Keep in mind, your boyfriend is a guy who recently revealed to you that he hooked up with a stripper during the short time he has known you. That's right, a stripper.. and expected you to be completely fine upon finding out about this tasty little tidbit of information.

Boyfriend says that the sight of your friend's posts on your facebook page makes his blood boil, and he orders you to remove him as your friend on the social networking site. In fact, he orders you to sever ties with your close friend altogether: you can't be around him, you can't call him, you can't text him, you can't breathe the same fucking air as him.

So what do you do?

Do you perhaps realize that your boyfriend is a ridiculously insecure, jealous, controlling, immature, hypocritial douchebag that will make a scene every time you so much as glance at another man?

Or do you do as King Boyfriend commands and disown your friend, who clearly has done nothing wrong.. and who is one of the most loyal friends you will ever have in your lifetime?

If I was a girl in this position I know I would choose the former. Most would have enough self-respect to do so, I think. Unfortunately, not all fall into this category.

And that is quite unfortunate.
