When Taylor Swift started dating Harry Styles, you could sense the Internet panic that somehow she was going to be the undoing of One Direction. Not only do I think it’s highly unlikely that One Direction is going to split up (if anything, they are really just getting started!), but even in the case that they did part ways at some point, to put the blame all on one member’s girlfriend just isn’t fair at all.
If your boyfriend is constantly blaming you for things, it could be that you are in an emotionally abusive relationship and we urge you to seek out help because you deserve so much better than that situation. Sometimes though, even the best of boyfriends mess up and take the blame out on girlfriends for things that aren’t their fault at all — but that’s still not okay. Here are eight everyday things that your boyfriend shouldn’t blame you for happening.
His Band Breaks UpWhether it is an actual band or simply his band of friends, the fact is that people drift apart for a whole host of reasons. There can be a lot to balance in life between family, school, work, sports, and yes relationships, but it also takes effort on the guy involved to make things work despite all those different areas requiring his focus. It's not your fault if he has chosen to place emphasis on different areas of his life and maybe that has impacted his friendships. Source: Andres Otero/WENN.com
He Has A Bad GameEvery athlete has bad games. Okay, so maybe you being there makes him a little nervous, but considering he probably has nerves that also his whole family, the rest of the school and the local news is there, it's not fair to blame you when you've just been trying to be supportive. A part of sports is being able to block all that stuff out, and while that's really tough and it can be tempting to blame all those outside factors, he's got to know that you really had nothing to do with how the game went.

He's Super TiredIf he knows he needs 10 hours of sleep to function the next day, he shouldn't plan on chatting with you until midnight. It's nice to have those late-night talks with a significant other, but there's also some personal responsibility to make the decision to stick with bedtime and be done with the phone or Internet. Conversations are a two-way street, so to put all the blame on you for his night-owl habits just isn't fair. Source: Shutterstock.com
He Was Late For CurfewHe knows what the rules are in his household, and it's his responsibility to adhere to them. It's not fair for him to act like seeing a movie that cuts it close to curfew is all okay, only to take it out on you when he's late getting home and now might be getting grounded.

He Has A Fight With His ParentsIn addition to curfew rules, disagreements with parents can happen for a whole bunch of reasons, and maybe they don't see eye-to-eye when it comes to dating in general. That's a family situation, and just because you may be the girlfriend, that doesn't make it your fault when there's some kind of disagreement between parents and son at home. Source: Shutterstock.com
He Got A Bad GradeIf he insists on studying with you, but seems more interested in flirting while you're busy cracking the books, that's not your fault at all. If he knows he won't really focus around you and won't be productive, then he should also know it could impact his grades. If he isn't putting the work in, it's not fair to somehow turn it around on you just because you were in the area. Source: Shutterstock.com
You Can't Make Last-Minute PlansYou are a busy girl, and while you do make time to hang out with the BF, that doesn't mean you can drop your plans at any second to go hang out. When he suggests hanging out at the last minute but you have another obligation, he shouldn't be putting blame on you for ignoring him or prioritizing things over him. It's nice he wants to spend time together, but that's totally unfair to blame you for being selfish for simply having your own schedule. Source: Shutterstock.com
He's BrokeIt's 2013, and guys definitely don't need to pay all the time on dates - in fact, splitting bills is great to keep couple peace. The annoying thing is if he offers to pay, and then later starts complaining about how you cleaned him out. Ummm, you definitely didn't make him pay! That's just not cool to put forth a favor and then use it against someone. Source: Shutterstock.com
