The results made me pretty bummed, but I think it’s important to know how to deal when someone says something horrible to you.
Let’s see what y’all had to say!
“So I’ve had a few jerks say mean things to me. I’m willing to share what they said to me if you’re willing to share with me. Anyways, a guy said ‘He knows why guys leave me so early’ and he also said I’m immature when he’s a year younger and starting this fight. Then another guys said ‘I don’t have to trust you, I never did.’”
“Once when I was 11, this Guy in my class said ‘When I first saw you I thought to myself ‘What the hell is that?’
Yep, that’s actually what he said. The funny thing is we’re really good friends now.”
“I considered this guy a good friend, and he told me that to him I wasn’t a friend just an acquaintance.”
“I went through a bad time and dealt with it by hooking up with people way before I was with my boyfriend, but because of that, my boyfriend once said to me he doesn’t trust me going to parties because he ‘knows what I’m capable of.’”
“I remember that my ex said to a guy that I was a psycho. So not cool. Me and that guy were talking, but you know what I’m happy it never worked out between because I would have never gotten with the man I am with today.”
Ouch. These are just not fun. I was picked on a lot growing up so I had insults hurled at me all the time. But the meanest thing a guy ever said to me came from an ex-boyfriend who, during our breakup, called me the c-word multiple times and told me he wished I never existed. What a peach.
I wanted to share these things because I wanted to express that it’s important not to generalize people. Not all guys are jerks. Not all girls are jerks. Every person has the capability to say really horrible things.
I know how hard it is to take mean things that people say to heart. It’s easy to let a mean comment get to you and make you feel badly about yourself. I just have to stress that the best thing you can do is ignore comments like this and to not respond. I know you want to say something back or defend yourself, but ignoring things like this take the power away from people who say mean things.
What’s the meanest thing a guy has ever said to you? How did you respond? Tell us in the comments!
