“I have been with my boyfriend for about eight years.
The other night we went out to dinner with my parents. One of their friends came over to the table to say hello. The conversation came around to this elderly friend’s age. She is 80 years old.
My boyfriend asked her “if she still fools around.”
We were all so embarrassed. He showed no respect to me, my parents or to their friend.
He does not think he said anything wrong. He thinks it is funny. He often talks about our sex life in a social gathering, even though he can see this makes people very uncomfortable. I feel this is a private topic. How do I handle this if it happens again? — Not Amused”
Other synonyms for falling flat on ones face.
Your boyfriend seems to lack a filter when it comes to things of a sexual nature. This is a problem.
He’s also painfully unfunny. I recommend you talk with him in private and tell him that the things that you two do between the sheets are between the two of you and no one else. If he continually brings it up in other conversations then you might want to kick him out of the bed and see how he changes … or doesn’t.
