Guy Tries To Isolate His GF By Making Her Keep The Pregnancy Private, Reddit Gets Involved
Life took an unexpected turn for a 26-year-old Redditor when she learned she was eight weeks pregnant. Filled with excitement, she shared the news with her best friend. However, when she told her 31-year-old boyfriend, his reaction surprised her—it was oddly neutral.
This ignited a clash between their perspectives. She's all about sharing with loved ones, while he fiercely guards his privacy. Their differing reactions to the pregnancy deepen the conflict: she's eager to celebrate, and he's focused on potential problems.
But what's the reasoning behind his perspective? And what does the future hold for OP? Scroll down to go through the whole story and what Reddit users have to say about it.
OP said she understands her boyfriend's need to keep things private... up to a certain point
She just can't support his radio silence approach when it comes to her pregnancy.
He hasn't given her an acceptable reason why they should keep this between the two of them.
Is OP in the wrong to share her pregnancy with her friends and family despite her boyfriend's wishes?
OP gives us an update:
Now that you have read the story, it’s time to see what Redditors had to say about this.
He doesn't even want OP be excited about her pregnancy when he expressed his desire to start a family just recently
OP should trust her gut and talk about her relationship with her friends and family. I doubt they'll be comfortable with any of her boyfriend's plans.
There is a difference between keeping things private and making sure they are hidden
Does he have another wife and family who will show up if OP's pregnancy becomes the talk of the town?
Reading OP's post made everyone so uneasy. It's really unnerving what he's trying to do to her.
They both wanted this child. What happened so suddenly that his attitude soured this fast?
