Dear Sarah...

Dear Sarah...

Dear Sarah,

I said “Fuck off!” to my boyfriend when I was angry.  He got upset and said: “Fuck it, it’s not worth it!”  Now he wants to break up as he thinks saying “fuck off “is unforgivable.  My friends swear at each other all the time, so it is normal for me.  I don’t think saying “fuck off” is so bad, and I am sad he wants to break up.

Fucking help me!

Dear Fucking Help Me!

Your boyfriend does sound very upset about this and is overreacting if this is the first time you have told him to fuck off.  We all need to be aware of what our partners’ really care about, but he needs to talk to you first and give you a chance to try.  Tell him that for you, swearing is normal with your friends, but you will try your best to not swear at him.  Also ask him to not dump you if you do something wrong the first time but to talk to you about it.  And if he keeps doing this, maybe it is better to dump him!

Love Sarah
