We have been together for 3 years. He has been lovely, and we have a lot fun together, but we had been fighting a lot recently because of a personal issue in my family. We had been giving each other the silent treatment, but we sat down yesterday and talked things out.
Then he said something that didn’t sit right with me. He told me that I should behave before he replaces me. At first, I laughed. I thought he was joking since we joke around so much. But he wasn’t joking, he looked serious. I asked him if he was serious, and he said that he was. I asked him to explain. He said that since he made so much money, women fell at his feet and it wouldn’t be hard for him to replace me with some other woman since he had so many options.
I wouldn’t say that he’s exaggerating, because he is good looking and makes a lot, and women have flirted with him right in front of me, but what the hell??? How can he expect me to be okay with whatever bullshit he’s saying? This ended in another fight and I left the house. Before leaving, I did mention that he should get himself a new girlfriend since that would be so easy for him.
I think the reason he has said these things to me is because of some weird youtube channels that he has been watching for quiet a while now. I searched them up and they allign with everything he said, so now I know from where he’s getting all these stupid ideas from. A friend of his had recommended these channels to him because my boyfriend is a “high value man” (whatever that means) and he should be “alert”.
We haven’t talked since. He hasn’t contacted me, and I haven’t either because I’m angry. What he said to me hurt my feelings very deeply. Is this something that is breakup-worthy? Should I just ask him to stop watching whatever he’s watching that’s making him think this way? Should I let it go? Will it be stupid to breakup with him over this?
TLDR – boyfriend said that I was easily replaceable and he had a lot of options when it came to women, i got angry and left the house, he’s been watching something harmful stuff online which is influencing his ideas, should I break up with him over something like this or should I just let it go?
