Have you ever thought that your boyfriend was blatantly stupid? I asked some women to describe to me the moment in their relationships when they realized this. Honestly, We laughed together with all of them, but I bet it was not so funny when they heard it for the first time.
It’s difficult to admit that someone you love and who you thought was smart can say something so dumb. I remember once when my boyfriend was writing something and he wasn’t sure about the spelling, he asked me to check it out.
While I was reading the sentence, he said: “It looks good, but I’m not sure. I mean, there’s no red line under it that indicates it’s not correct.” In some other situation that wouldn’t be far from the truth, but I was holding a paper he wrote on…
Anyways, I hope you’ll at least have a good laugh while reading some of these situations and maybe remember the moment when you realized that your boyfriend was blatantly stupid.
1. “You need to wash bedsheets?”
“We were on a camping trip together and I said how I can’t wait to get back home and lay down in freshly washed bedsheets. I love nature and camping, but mosquitos killed me!
I started explaining how perfect it is when you take a shower, you’re clean and everything else is clean and it all just smells perfect. After nodding a couple of times, he asked me out of nowhere: “You need to wash bedsheets?”
What was I supposed to answer on that?”
2. “How did she move where her hair grows from?”
“The moment I realized my boyfriend was blatantly stupid was when we were watching a movie and one of the main actresses changed her hairstyle.
All of a sudden he said: “I understand it that actresses have to change the way their hair looks. Different scenes require different hairstyles. But how did she move the place where her hair grows from?”.
He was talking about her hair parting. She changed it from a middle part to a side part…”
3. “I didn’t think I had to remove the plastic packaging.”
“I visited my boyfriend when he moved out for college and when I got into his new apartment it smelled extremely bad. Jokingly, I asked if he left a plastic bowl on the stove. He said that he was heating a frozen pizza for lunch. When he saw how confused I was he added this sentence…
“I didn’t think I had to remove the plastic packaging.”
Dude, are you kidding me?”
4. “I’m a meatatarian.”
“I wanted to take him home for holidays since we were in a relationship for some time now and we talked about getting engaged. To make it all less awkward, I arranged a video call with mum and dad when my boyfriend was at my place.
It all went well until my mum asked what he prefers to eat because she knows I’m not a fan of red meat so maybe I’ve found someone who’s the same and she wanted it all to go smoothly. He said: “Oh, you don’t have to worry ma’am. I’m a meatatarian because I eat everything.“
Speaking of awkward…
5. “I forgot to water my plant!”
“After a night out we went to his place to grab a drink. After some time he jumped from the sofa and said: “I forgot to water my plant!” I was a bit confused, because I didn’t know if it was one of his jokes, or if he actually takes care of another living thing (which I find extremely attractive).
He took the cup, filled it with water, and approached the window. He was watering a plastic plant… You assumed right; I never saw him again.”
6. “There are more than 10 years in a decade.”
“My boyfriend and I had a real fight about how many years there are in a decade. I kept saying that decade means a set of ten and how deka in Greek means ten. Even though I was sure of what I’m saying, he said I’m the one who was confused.
“Baby, there are more than 10 years in a decade. Like, 12 or something.”
I wanted to throw a dictionary in his face so he can finally learn his own language.”
7. “The past was black and white!”
“Okay, so my boyfriend is American and I could somehow forgive him for not being able to show the Netherlands on the map. You know, they have fifty states to learn, and Europe in total doesn’t have that much, as far as I know.
But when he screamed at me: “The past was black and white!” while we were discussing that topic I knew one thing for sure – the American educational system failed completely. Period.”
8. “Fahrenheit and Celsius are the same.”
“I used to date this guy who thought that Fahrenheit and Celsius are the same. He was arguing that when someone expresses the temperature in Celsius it means it’s cold and Fahrenheit was supposed to be hot. I’ve never heard something that stupid in my life. Can I say stupid?”
9. “I wish I was born in 2030 so I could live during the 3000s.”
“That’s an easy one. One of my exes said, on multiple occasions, that he wished he had been born in 2030 so he could live to see the year 3000.
For the first time, I thought he simply mispronounced something so I didn’t pay attention. The second time he repeated this, I was only thinking how his Maths skills are horrible.
Third time… You know, I wonder how he’d live those 970 years because I forgot to ask him before I left.”
10. “Why are you celebrating the 14th of July? It’s supposed to be 4th, right?”
“I’m French and I met my American boyfriend here. We went to my hometown for Bastille day, so he can see how we celebrate the National French holiday. He asked me, I quote: “Why are you celebrating the 14th of July? It’s supposed to be 4th, right?”
He left me speechless after he explained that he thought the whole world celebrates the same holidays. I’m sorry hun, not everyone’s Independence day is on the same date.”
11. “How long will your curly hair last?”
“My then-boyfriend arrived a bit earlier to pick me up for a date and I was curling my hair. Apparently, it was the first time he saw any girl curling her hair because what he asked me next left me in awe. He said: “How long will that last? A few months or until it grows out and you cut it?”
I was not doing a perm dude. I just used curling iron!”
So, what do you say? Would you say your boyfriend is stupid after declaring something like this? I probably would just to annoy him. But, some things need to be overlooked, nobody’s perfect. At least not all the time. Give your man a hug and a kiss and laugh these off.
