Behaving Like A Child

, , | Romantic | July 18, 2017

(I am 18 years old and have recently started going out with a guy I met at my college. While we are getting to know each other, I find out he used to be neighbors with one of my best friends. This story happens around the time my best friend has announced on her social media that she is pregnant with her first child. I am at this guy’s house and we are sitting on the couch watching a movie, when he turns around and looks at me, smirking.)

Guy: “Do you want to make the same mistake [Best Friend] made?”

Me: “Erm, what?”

Guy: “Do you want to make the same mistake as [Best Friend] and have a baby with me?”

(I am feeling a little uncomfortable since I only have known this guy for a week and from the look on his face, I know he isn’t joking.)

Guy: “Well? Do you want to have a baby with me?”

Me: “I’ve only known you for a week. I don’t want to have a child with someone I haven’t known for that long and besides, I’m not ready to have children at eighteen.”

Guy: “I don’t understand, [My Name]. If [Best Friend] is ready to have a child then why aren’t you ready?”

(I should note that my best friend had known her boyfriend for years when they found out about the pregnancy, and were ready to have a child even if it was at a young age. Even though she was ready to have a baby, I am not, and want to focus on a bunch of other things and find the right person before I am ready. However, the more this guy keeps pressuring me, the more I feel uncomfortable and want to leave.)

Me: “Because I’ve only known you for a week!”

Guy: *getting angry* “Fine, then. I think you should. If you can’t give me what I want, then we shouldn’t be seeing each other, [My Name]. I really thought you wanted to make the same mistake as [Best Friend] did.”

Me: “The only mistake I made is going out with you in the first place.”
