These Horrible Relationships Will Make You Feel Better About Being Single

By Mustafa Gatollari

Matters of the heart are always tricky, and if you're having difficulty finding that special somebody who inspires you to do better and go after more of life, it's easy to get discouraged. But if you're ever feeling down and out about your love life, I can promise you that there's a surefire way to feel better: check out some of the relationship problems other people are having online.

A good treasure trove of cringe-worthy, face-palming, and "what-were-they-thinking" action is r/relationships on Reddit. While there are several cases where people are obviously dealing with nuanced relationship matters requiring some seriously delicate advice, many others have a pretty clear solution. They're either blatantly silly or one-sided, or so outrageous that asking strangers on the internet for help is the last thing these people should be doing.

Like this one woman who "overpowered" her partner during a play fight that brought up a lot of deep-seated issues in their relationship. Turns out she "emasculated" him in a playfight after pinning him down with her legs on his shoulders, and in the aftermath of their fight be basically said he thinks women were inferior to men. Oh, and he also came up with a bunch of excuses for why she was able to "best" him so easily.
