- A 25-year-old Reddit user shared in a Feb. 27 post that he gave his 23-year-old girlfriend an ultimatum.
- The couple had been dating for almost two years with no prior problems.
- He had already told her that he didn’t find long hair on legs and armpits attractive.
A man who found himself in a difficult situation asked Reddit users if he was an asshole for telling his girlfriend of almost two years that he would leave her if she didn’t shave.
The not-so-sympathetic boyfriend, 25, created the post on Reddit yesterday, writing that he had told his girlfriend, 23, early in their relationship that he didn’t find body hair on women attractive.
“What I mean by body hair, I mean only the armpits and legs,” he wrote.
“I told him I don’t mind stubble or just a little growth, but I don’t find long, spreading leg and armpit hair attractive.”
His girlfriend, who didn’t like the feeling of having body hair, didn’t have a problem with his preference at first.
A 25-year-old man told his 23-year-old girlfriend that he would break up with her if she didn’t shave her body hair.
He admitted in his Feb. 27 Reddit post that he had told his girlfriend of almost two years that he didn’t find women’s hair attractive.
His girlfriend originally had no problem with his preference and even told him she didn’t like the feel of hair on her skin.
The 23-year-old started growing body hair after being inspired by a TikTok video about body positivity.
“His armpits and legs almost look like mine now,” the original post (OP) revealed.
When asked why she was letting her hair grow, she said the video she saw “made her feel more confident.”
He wrote that he finally told his girlfriend that he didn’t like the hair on her armpits and legs, which left her furious.
“She didn’t like that and said she didn’t want me to be like ‘one of those men,'” he wrote.
“I told her that if she doesn’t shave I’m going to break up because I don’t find her attractive because of that.”
The couple couldn’t resolve the issue, and after the OP reviewed the comments on their post, they decided to call it quits.
The couple fought over the long hair on their legs and armpits and the original poster (OP) eventually ended their relationship.
“She didn’t take it lightly, she decided to insult me and threatened to break my things,” he wrote.
“However, he ended up leaving after a while to stay at his mother’s house.”
The newly single admitted in his post that he “deserved the insults” after giving him the ultimatum.
Since then, he had a different opinion on the subject of body hair, but ultimately decided that the breakup was “a good thing” for both of them.
Other Reddit users commented on the post, with some users declaring that he is the asshole in the matter.
Their relationship did not end on good terms and the 23-year-old is currently staying with her mother.
Social media users have been debating the issue of who was wrong and that the OP technically had the decision to break up with whoever they wanted.
Some of the members of the social media platform who wrote ‘YTA’ (you’re the asshole) insulted him and one even said he had ‘some growing up to do.’
“You can’t dictate how others groom their body hair and using ‘I’ll break up with you’ to emotionally manipulate her into doing something your way is a big fucking move,” one person wrote.
Other Reddit users who wrote that he was ‘NTA’ (not the jerk) explained that he has the right to break up with whoever he wants.
