This woman thought she might have found “the one” for her. But she soon discovered she was mistaken because of his views on plastic surgery! Did she do anything wrong?
A Fresh and New Relationship
OP (Original Poster) had been dating her boyfriend, Max, for four months. It was a relatively new relationship, but OP mentioned they had shared plenty of good times and was hopeful he would be “the one.”
She added that they met through a friend, and things have been great for both of them!
She shared that 4 years ago, when she was 22, she had a nose job done because she broke her nose twice when she was a kid, leaving a large bump. A year after that, at 23, she had breast augmentation that “bumped her up 2 cup sizes.”
OP wrote, “These were lifelong insecurities that I was bullied over, and it was really relieving to get them done.”
Social Media Happenings
Then, the night before this story was posted, Max and OP were scrolling through her social media while sitting on the couch. She then stopped on an old classmate’s vacation photo.
OP explained that her friend was wearing a bikini, and it was obvious that she had implants.
She said, “She looks great; happy for her! But you can tell.”
Suddenly, Max glanced at OP and said it was “gross.” OP asked him what he meant by that, and Max said, “Women who get implants or other surgeries are a huge turnoff to most guys.”
His Opinions on the Matter
Max then added that men preferred “natural over two balloons.” He also noted how OP’s friend looked so insecure.
OP laughed and said, “So, you’re turned off by me?”
Confusion on His Face
Max was confused by what OP said and asked her what she meant. Then, OP informed him about the procedures she had done before.
OP’s boyfriend did not believe anything she said. He kept denying things and told OP that she was joking.
However, his demeanor changed when OP showed him her old photos.
Walking Out on Her
Max was quiet, then suddenly left. Then, OP got a text from him saying how she should have disclosed this information on their first date.
He even told her that she had led him on and that he needed to consider things. The next day, OP still hadn’t heard anything from Max!
After a while, OP finally received a message from Max asking her if they could meet up.
OP said, “He thinks he wants to continue the relationship and wants to talk things over.”
Not a Perfect Fit
However, given Max’s initial reaction to OP’s story, she said it made her realize he was “not the partner she was looking for.”
OP ultimately decided not to continue their relationship.
When OP received a reply, it further cemented the fact that she made the right choice.
He said, “I was hopeful we could start over on an honest beginning, but I guess only one of us is mature enough to look past each other’s shortcomings in the relationship. I’m glad you revealed this about yourself before I got too involved. Goodbye, good luck finding someone ’cause no real man would respect someone who can’t even respect their own body.”
OP said she was content and happy with her “natural and unnatural parts.” She also aims to find someone who “doesn’t have a huge hang-up on plastic surgery!”
He Doesn’t Deserve Me!
OP mentioned that she was already comfortable with her decision to break up with Max, and the fact that he replied to her message with such mean words and accusations made her “extra comfortable.”
She said, “He never deserved this limited edition set!”
Insights From Redditors
People believe Max was misogynistic and that OP was lucky she found out about his true colors early.
A top commenter wrote, “Not the a**hole. You lucked out that he showed you this side at four months in. You could have been married before you found out he’s this shallow or misogynistic.” Another shared, “The first red flag was how comfortable he was insulting another woman he doesn’t even know over her body. The second was his reaction to the news you shared with him. In the words of a TikToker I can’t remember the name of, dump his a**!”
It’s Not About Men
Some Redditors also pointed out that some women want plastic surgery to make themselves feel better—not to attract men! People have their reasons for these things, so we should respect their decision.
One man from the thread noted, “Also that he based that insult over the other woman’s hypothetical attractiveness to ‘most guys,’ you know, ’cause all women are nothing but breathing s** toys. Maybe the other woman just likes that look for her body, and it’s not about what men find attractive. Maybe she had to have a mastectomy or something, and implants help relieve some of that loss or trauma.”
Did OP handle this issue well? What would you tell her?
