Toxic Girlfriends Are Being Called Out For Their Red Flags
Unfortunately, there are a lot of toxic relationships out there. People are complicated and this can make relationships difficult to navigate! Everyone is on guard looking out for those red flags that most of us are sadly familiar with. We’ve gathered this list of “toxic girlfriend behaviors” that you may or may not be able to relate to. Let us help you learn from other people’s mistakes so you can save yourself the headache. Without further ado…
If He Can't Mind Read, I Don't Want Him!
Apparently this woman thinks that her boyfriend should be a mind reader and if he’s not, he’s useless. This is some absolutely crazy toxic behavior. Poor guy cannot win and he’s being set up to fail!
Lots of us have been in this situation where our partner says they’re not hungry but then they steal all your food. We hope this guy got out while he could.
Blocking is For the Girls
This guy probably had the right idea in blocking this girl, but he gave in too soon when she called to tell him to unblock her. It seems odd that she would go through all this trouble just to be the one to block him in the end.
I guess the act of blocking someone on social media is for girls only? Either way, he should be happy to be rid of this crazy toxicity in his life. No one needs this kind of headache.
No Other Women Allowed
One thing we see a lot from crazy girlfriends is controlling nature. They don’t want to see any other women around their men because they’re scared of cheating. This man sent his girl a photo of his poor broken foot at the hospital.
But, what is the first thing she sees? The bag sitting in the corner of the room is what worries her. She calls him and and we have to assume she felt awfully silly when he told her that it was, in fact, his mother’s bag. Whoops!
I Have a Boyfriend But I'm Single
Someone needs to give this girl a lesson on what it means to be single because she seems awfully confused. And we would be willing to bet that she would be awfully hurt if her partner said that he was single as well.
People will do and say some crazy things to justify bad behaviors. This is a perfect example of that fact. We hope he finds someone else who doesn’t think he’s needy and who doesn’t think that she’s single until he puts a ring on it.
When the First Date Leads to Home Invasion
We know love can make us do some crazy things, but this takes that notion to a whole other level that scares us. So, we can’t imagine how the guy on the receiving end of this feels!
I don’t know that I’ve sent 159,000 texts in my entire life, let alone to one person! The most shocking part of the whole endeavor is that this woman went to these wild lengths after one date! How could one date really be?
Don't Make Me Turn Around For Foolishness
We have to admit this one made us laugh. And we think this was a tweet made in good fun. But if not, it is definitely a little crazy. We have to wonder, how do you choose a cologne that matches your face?
That’s a pretty tall order. We think what she’s trying to say here is that some guys smell good but aren’t as attractive as the cologne is. It’s better than someone smelling bad, right?
A Self-Proclaimed Toxic Girlfriend is Still a Toxic Girlfriend
It appears some people are toxic and proud of it. We can only hope this was a joke and that these are not actual rules that this woman requires her partner to follow.
And if she is being serious all we can do is warn anyone she’s dating to run away as fast as they possibly can. No phones allowed?!
Comes With Strings Very Much Attached
Imagine opening up your birthday gift form your girlfriend and it’s exactly what you asked for: the new Call of Duty video game. It sounds like a dream come true… except it comes with a few rules.
Yes you get the game, BUT you better follow that list of rules if you plan on holding onto it. Don’t forget to make sure she has something to do while you’re busy in battle.
Pretty On The Outside, Ugly On The Inside
From an early age, women are taught that their looks aren’t the only thing that matters. It’s what is on the inside that counts the most. It can take a majority of a woman’s life to unlearn these toxic lessons that were ingrained in her since she was young. The point is: you should be kind to everybody, regardless of their looks.
Since this girl doesn’t know how to be nice to all people, she should probably just keep her thoughts to herself instead of broadcasting them online. Sadly, she puts all of her value on her looks.
Prove it With a Spoon
Of all the strange ways that trust issues can manifest, we have never seen a request quite as random as this one. “Put a spoon on your head and take a picture to prove you’re home” is not something we typically hear everyday.
But from the looks of it, this might be a common request from this young man’s girlfriend. In typical “toxic girlfriend” fashion, the photo evidence is not even proof enough.
Smiley Faces are WAY Over the Line
Here we have a perfect example of hypocrisy mixed with straight up crazy behavior. This woman apparently can’t handle this man sending her a smiley face because it is too flirty. Yet, she is able to send him tons of “heart eye” emojis and it’s no problem?
Seems like a bit of a double standard going on here. We hope this guy blocked the girl before things got even crazier because this is the kind of behavior that can turn even more scary super quick!
"Why Didn't You Play Footsie With Me Last Night?"
We have to draw the line somewhere and this might be just the place. There should be a rule against waking anyone up for stupid reasons. We all need our sleep!
And asking if he wants to break up since he didn’t play footsie under the covers definitely does not warrant a wake up call.
“I Have a Boyfriend”
You have to be some level of conceited if you think everyone that speaks a word to you is trying to hit on you. There is such a thing as being kind to someone that you’re not trying to date.
That might be shocking to hear from some people, apparently. We can only imagine this girl was pretty embarrassed when the cashier explained that they were just trying to move things along to catch the game on T.V.
Some might think it’s not really a sign of a healthy relationship to put your significant other in “mall jail” while you shop. However, we could argue that this man doesn’t look all too uncomfortable in his storage container.
Call it toxic or call it convenient. Maybe this storage will be put into place in malls across the world soon. It might be better for all parties.
Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is
Most people would think that these two knew each other quite well based on this conversation. The way she asked for money was so casual and unassuming. Why can’t what she needs in exchange for money be…normal?
The guy who responded was strong and didn’t give in, so we have some faith in humanity again. She also got rude and defensive when she didn’t get what she wanted immediately. Doesn’t she have a clue that this won’t make him respond faster? You’d think they were somewhat close based on this exchange.
I Hate When People At the Gym Actually Want to Work Out
We hate to be the ones to break it to this girl, but the world doesn’t revolve around her. Maybe, just maybe, people go to the gym to workout, not to notice her. She must be confused on what a gym is really for.
It’s not a fashion contest, nor is it the place to go to pick people up. She’s setting herself up to be disappointed if it upsets her that people focus on their workout in a gym. Come join us in reality, my friend!
Pizza When You Want Steak
This woman might have some of the highest expectations that I’ve ever seen. Not to mention, they’re completely unrealistic. We’re glad this commenter is putting things into perspective for her.
Do we think she knows how ridiculous this sounds? I guess she loves the chase, but this doesn’t seem like a good strategy to keep these boys around.
This is definitely not the first girl to get annoyed with her boyfriend for playing too many video games. But this reaction is a little psycho. Lucky for her, we’re sure he won’t ignore her anymore.
Because he will be busy breaking up with her! This drama queen will have plenty of time on her hands to think about her actions and hopefully learn from them. This is a quick and easy way to end up single.
I Can't Even Look At You Right Now
This might be one of the best things to say in the middle of an argument ever. It sends exactly the right message: “I can’t even look at you right now”.
But, it also adds a humorous touch. However, we would like to caution this person from laughing in the middle of an argument with a toxic girl because the consequences could be dire.
Toxic girlfriends are obviously toxic in their relationship but they can often be toxic with people outside of the relationship as well. This kind person thought he’d save the poor girl some embarrassment by letting her know there was a piece of lettuce on her head.
That seems like a nice enough gesture but naturally the toxic girlfriend takes it as flirting. Well, I guess she’ll just have to look silly with some food on her head to learn her lesson.
Flaws Should Be Embraced
It’s no doubt that nearly everybody dreams of dating that perfect someone who fits what society deems attractive. We all know that real people have flaws (except for those in magazines and on social media who are over-edited). We need to begin embracing all our flaws and not give up on ourselves because we’re not “perfect.”
When a person goes from an unhealthy weight to becoming fitter, that’s a massive accomplishment. They should pat themselves on the back for dedicating their days to becoming their best and healthier selves. So, imagine when you’re finally feeling good about your body and some random woman online judges you. It’s the worst.
No Means “Surprise Me”?
This girl took to twitter to see if she could gather some support for this wild claim from other toxic girlfriends. We hope some people were honest with her about the fact that this is straight up crazy behavior.
I thought “no” meant ”no” but apparently there is a new definition where “no” means “surprise me”. Is there a special dictionary I need to learn these new meanings? Maybe she should try actually saying what she means? Or is that too normal?
I'll Be Waiting
This girl might be waiting for a long time if she’s hoping her boyfriend will mind read and figure out what it is that’s making her so upset.
Most of us can agree that communication is key to a healthy relationship. If he really did something wrong the best way to get through it is to talk it out. But you can’t exactly get past something if he doesn’t even know he did something wrong. It seems like some simple logic is missing here.
When Your Phone is Working Against You
Any girlf friend is going to be upset if her boyfriend uses another girl’s name on accident, but you especially don’t want to catch yourself in this position if your girlfriend tends to be a little toxic.
In this case, it appears autocorrect was definitely working against this man and probably got him into some pretty hot water with his girl. Sometimes, technology hurts instead of helps, that’s for sure!
Jealous of a Cat
Jealousy can kill a relationship. Being jealous of a man’s pet is just plain weird and absolutely absurd. You would think that a man that treats his pets well would be a green flag. But, he just can’t seem to win!
Apparently he likes his cat too much, and that’s a problem for her! She is even considering asking him to get rid of it. At least the commentators on this post are trying to talk her off the ledge and lead her in the right direction.
Can't Let Him Know You Like Him
We all know the signs of a healthy and happy relationship are good communication, trust, and love. So when you don’t let the other person in the relationship know how you feel, things are bound to get pretty rocky.
Naturally, the toxic mindset is to show no weakness. Unfortunately, people can’t read minds (at least most of us can’t) so this probably isn’t the best strategy to maintain a long and happy relationship. Just saying.
The Only Woman He Needs
We have a hard time understanding why any woman would not want their partner to be close with his family. It looks like this person is fine with him spending time with his immediate family but the extended family is just not allowed.
Not wanting your partner to spend time with their other loved ones is a HUGE red flag. Hopefully, her boyfriend knew that and left before she got even more toxic!
Waiting Too Long
We all know the adage: “It’s better late than never.” This saying would be applicable, except it’s a little weird that this girl reached out after so much time has passed. She’s either very bored or just plain desperate. Perhaps, there’s a deeper reason why she decided to message him out of the blue.
It would be interesting to see him wait and respond six months later with some random fact about his life. We wonder what her reaction would be. She might have thought she was too good for him before, but she’s changed her mind now.
All 60 Personalities
This girl is obviously very worried about her boyfriend having friends that are girls. Lucky for him, he can get the best of all worlds with her because of her many personalities.
Who needs friends when your girl is 60 girls in one? We hope she’s joking because not letting your significant other have friends is very toxic. It’s not the way to maintain a healthy relationship!
0 to 100 Real Quick
It’s scary how quickly people can switch up. This conversation and this girl both seemed totally normal until things took a turn for the crazy train. Simply put, she went from 0 to 100 real quick.
The craziest thing is that she wasn’t even rejected. The poor guy was happy to go on a date but he just wanted to wait until his leg healed. That seems perfectly reasonable to us! But, apparently it was not acceptable to her and she switched up fast.
Chocolates or Necklaces
This might be the first time that I’ve seen someone upset because their boyfriend got them chocolates and a card. In most circles this would be considered sweet and thoughtful, especially on a romantic day like Valentine’s Day!
But, I suppose he should have gotten his hands on that “crazy girl dictionary” and then he would know that what she really wanted was jewelry. How do people take girlfriends like this seriously?
No Attitude Here
Most of us learned how to use our words when we were young but communication doesn’t always come easy. Being in a relationship with someone who won’t express how they feel and would rather “pretend” to be okay must be exhausting!
I guess they can just go on staring at that wall if that’s what makes them happy but it seems like a simple conversation might do the trick.
Toxic Girlfriends Take Tik Tok
It seems that no place on the internet is safe from toxic girlfriends. The term has taken over tik tok trends. Lots of people have shared their personal experiences with toxic girlfriends, as toxic girlfriends themselves, and more.
Now, people’s toxic girlfriend stories are being shared more than ever, and some toxic behaviors are being recorded and shared with the entire internet.
When Your Boyfriend Interrupts
This meme makes us laugh but unfortunately, there are real people out there that actually feel this way. Has anyone ever heard of breaking up with their partner before talking to someone else?
If someone else makes you smile more, you don’t have to stay! If you do, you are the bad guy. Sadly, there are people out there that do this kind of thing to their partners although we wish there weren’t.
This is another example of someone taking things way too far. She’s spending way too much time thinking about this situation. Who cares if he denied your friend request? Maybe she’s not as interesting as she thinks she is.
Now we’re worried for this man who will have no idea that this woman is going to ambush him at work. We wish we could warn him! Hopefully someone talked her out of this crazy plan before she embarrassed herself and the man at his place of work.
She’s the Prize (And She Knows it)
We’re all for confidence and reminding yourself that anyone would be lucky to have you, but this is taking confidence to a toxic level of conceit that we can’t get behind. I find that people who are truly amazing don’t need to spend time going around telling people how amazing they are.
It looks like this was her dating profile so she’s not starting out very strong here. If she’s so fine with being single we’re not sure why she’s on a dating app in the first place. To each their own, I guess.
This guy better get out while he still can! If this girl is idolizing the Gone Girl story then we are very concerned for his safety. If you haven’t seen the movie, go watch it and you’’ understand our concern.
And if she’s willing to go to such extremes over something this small, that makes us extra scared for him! We hope he’ll make it out of this one alive.
Straight to Insults
This is a tale as old as time. Someone gets rejected so they go straight to insults. No one likes to be rejected but this response is clearly from someone whose feelings were very hurt. We don’t know where the narcissist thing came from.
Maybe it’s a projection? It’s laughable that she thinks people that are verified are a sign of status. This guy dodged a bullet for sure.
She’s Obviously Totally Fine
This is a clear situation of someone who has not moved on. Usually, if you have to try to convince someone that you’re “so much better” without them, you’re usually not as well off as you’re making it seem.
That is almost certainly what’s happening here. I guess it makes her feel better about herself if she thinks that this guy knows he lost the best thing he ever had. But, it missed the mark and just comes across as a little crazy.
Speaking For All Women
This person took it upon herself to speak on behalf of all women (which is never a good idea). The question about who should pay the bill is one that is still argued all the time. The general consensus is that no one person should have to cover every bill.
A relationship is amed of 2 people for a reason, right? Both should contribute. But this woman seems to be of the opinion that the man should take care of her. Apparently, you’re only a man if you pay for dinner.
A Rich Man. Period.
If you cut through most of the gibberish that makes up this dating profile you come to one absolute truth: She wants a man that is rich. Some people look for kindness, humor, or shared interests, but not this girl.
She has a one track mind and unless you’re rich, she’s not interested. To each their own, I guess. But we don’t think she’s getting many matches with this kind of attitude if we had to guess.
A Little Accident
You might be wondering what the only thing crazier than a crazy girlfriend is. The answer is a crazy ex-girlfriend. “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” and all that. This is one perfect example of a crazy ex taking it too far.
Roger and the ex should run and run fast to avoid this craziness. 240 are a lot of photos to liek at once. This one might be grounds for blocking, honestly.
Breaking Records With Craziness
This woman was so crazy that she broke a record! She called her ex so many times that she was actually arrested for stalking! It was the most severe case that the state of New Mexico had ever seen.
They say if you’re gonna be something, be the best. In addition to the 77,000 calls, she sent him more than 1,000 emails, 40,000 texts, and 600 letters. I guess she just had something really important to say.
Who Is She?
This meme makes us laugh but it is less funny when you think about the fact that there are real people out there who actually act like this. It perfectly shows how important trust is in a relationship.
Without trust what do you have? Well, you end up with lots of ridiculous fights like the one pictured here. Google maps doesn’t lie!
This girl has some pretty delusional confidence. She needs to believe that she’s the best thing he’s ever had. We’re not sure who she’s trying to convince here.
Attacking the receding hairline is a low blow, especially considering the context. This woman actually cheated on him, so the attacks are absolutely out of pocket. She needs a little dose of reality.
This is one of those intrusive thoughts that should have stayed in her brain and never been put on the internet. If she’s happy in the relationship we can’t imagine why she would want to purposely start a fight and ruin the whole thing.
Some people actually like to fight, but this is truly crazy. Accusing someone of cheating when you know that you planted the evidence is actually wild and we’re scared for anyone in a relationship with the kind of person who would do something like this.
A Sexy Cheetah
In other circumstances this might actually come across as a nice compliment. But, in this context, this might be one of the craziest ex-girlfriend encounters we’ve seen so far!
We wonder if he had to get a restraining order for this one. This goes beyond toxic and right into down right dangerous. Run while you can (like a cheetah)!
No Relationship Without Trust
No matter what, we all have a right to our privacy. It doesn’t matter if you’re a parent, sibling, friend, or partner, you shouldn’t go through someone’s private things. Also, if you don’t trust your boyfriend from the get-go you probably have bigger issues than his infidelity. After all, there is no relationship without trust.
Understandably, those who’ve been cheated on in the past can be paranoid. But, that’s something that needs to be worked through — it’s not an excuse to violate the privacy of someone else. Let this be a lesson!
How Will You Deal With This?
This is a pretty crazy opening line. Can you imagine sitting down for a date with someone and this is what they start with? It’s not the best way to start. Also, referring to yourself as a “girl boss” unironically is pretty cringey as well.
Again, this girl obviously doesn’t know where the line is between confidence and cockiness. We don’t think she’ll be attracting high value people with this attitude but maybe it’s working for her.
Relationships Are About Compromise
Relationships are about compromise, but some people think they’re above it, obviously. They expect to receive everything they want while providing little to nothing in response. This gets old quickly, so we don’t think they find themselves in too many happy relationships.
If it was this much of a struggle to meet up for a first date we can assume that these two didn’t make a love connection. Someone needs to teach this lady that relationships are a two-way street.
This is an interesting way to introduce both of your personalities. We find it hard to believe that someone could be the nicest person you’ve ever met and also be the twisted meany.
What makes us laugh about this post is that she made a slight error in her post. We can’t be sure what a cycle path is. We know she meant to say “psychopath” but the typo makes the post all the more comical.
We don’t blame this man for almost immediately blocking this woman because this is absolutely crazy behavior. It’s wild the lines people will cross when they’re trying to get in touch with someone.
She overheard his number and then went ahead to text him like it was completely normal. She says she’s harmless but that’s not the vibe we’re getting from his interaction. We can’t blame him that he reacted this way.
