Tonight’s post was going to be on things I find hilarious about rom-coms (specifically that which I probably shouldn’t), but is instead about how not to piss people off when talking about their relationships.
Because some people need to be hit with the clue bat.
1: if someone is in a relationship, don’t imply they’re dating someone else.
1.2: don’t imply they’re cheating on their partner.
1.2.2: don’t imply they’re cheating on their partner multiple times.
1.2.3: don’t imply they’re cheating on their partner while their partner is there.
1.2.4: don’t imply they’re cheating on their partner with someone you know to be aromantic.
2: don’t ask about trust issues in a relationship. Don’t imply there are ones. If there are, the people involved will tell you if they want you to know/think you should know/want your advice/ to use you as a sounding board. If there aren’t, it’s seriously not ok to be implying there are trust issues.
In general, try to think about exactly what you’re saying/implying before you speak/type.
(You know that old saying about looking before you leap? There’s a reason for it.)
