5 months, 13 days ago

Look, if theres anyone out there who knowshow great I am, its me and my mommy probably. Thanks, mom.

If theres anyone out there whom I WANT to be able to handle how great I am, its my partner.( Still trying to find you, LOL. I know you love conceal and seek .)

In a healthy relationship, your partner should not only accept and love how utterly great you are with open arms, but they have to be able to handle it themselves, too.

Now, does that mean your relationship is doomedjust because your partner doesnt laugh at ONE lame joke you construct? No, BUT THATS STILL NOT COOL.

However, there ARE some signs your girlfriend or boyfriend isnt equipped to handle the fact that you are Beyonc reincarnate, come down from heaven to save the lowly plebeians with your greatness.

And if you feel like theyre constantly knocking you down, rest assured, its not you thats the issue.

Here are six red flag that signal its truly your partner who cant manage just how fucking awesome you are.

1. They always play the one-up game.

Theres absolutely nothing worse than a partner whos trying to beat you at your own greatness game.

If Beyonc herselfcomes down from her throne the working day and tells you shes giving you precisely 15 puppies and a Slurpee because of how great you are, your partner should never immediately follow that up with That reminds me, Jesus himself came to me the other day and gave me 16 puppies and TWO Slurpees.

Obviously, you should both lift each other up and be proud of each others accomplishments, but you should devote enough time to focus on each of your accomplishments individually.

Basically, your partner should first exclaim how great you are, remind you how great you are and ask questions about how your utter greatness awarded you this GREAT SUCCESS.

THEN, you can totally move on to celebrating their( likely lesser, dont@ me) accomplishments.

2. They even attain you feel about your accomplishments.

OK, friends, its time to get pretty serious with this one.

Because you know youre a great ball of fire, you should know your accomplishments are also little bursts of sunshine to be celebrated. But if your partner doesnt take the time to celebrate those accomplishments with you, that should create your eyebrows a bit.

For example, lets say you just lost your goddamn intellect exclaiming to your partner that you got a callback for an acting gig.

If they immediately come back with some fluctuation of Thats great! You worked so hard for it. I wish someone would notice how much effort I was putting in at work, all the time, then it could be a sign theyre not equipped to handle your bomb self.

Of course, partners should support each other equally, so you should be able to set your impressions aside briefly and be there emotionally for your SO if theyre struggling.

At the same time, though, they should ideally be able to do the same for you, for both good and bad news. Give and take, people. Dedicate AND TAKE.

3. Theyre quick to shoot down your crazy notions.

You guys, Im not saying you SHOULD walk up to a cop and ask him to arrest you all in the name of doing it for the Vine( RIP ).

But I AM went on to say that if your partner constantly depicts misgiving or disapproval of your actions, then they probably wont be able to handle your greatness GREAT ideas included.

Part of what attains you a fucking bomb person is your eagerness to try new things, have fun and get a little~ crazy ~.

Yes, you should be sensitive to your partners requires, yada, yada, yada, but we arent get any younger, Karen.( Sorry if your name isnt Karen. Just feign it is for now .)

A partner who can manage your greatness is a partner who can and WILL keep up with you, even if that entails driving down the roadwhile you wear a weirdmask and scare people in other cars.

4. They say, I cant with you, too many times per day.

I know all of us say, OMG, I CANT, about 80 times a day, when in reality, we probably. But if your partner starts saying this more than you already do, thats definitely something.

Your greatness IS a lot to handle, and its certainly not a job for the swoon of heart. But the first thing your partner should bring to the table is a positive position and a willingness to at least TRY to can with you.

At the end of the day, perhaps this is just a quippy went on to say that popular among the youths. But also at the end of the day, if I say, Im gonna feed that donut over there enough times, Ill usually do it.

Be careful with this one, my great unicorns. There might come a day when your partner ACTUALLY cant with you.

5. They build questionable comments about your actions and appearance.

I cant even make up something funny to say about this, so everyone please take several seats while I get up on my soapbox.


That means things like what you eat, what you wear and what you smear all over your face to feel good are also great.

So if you find your partner stimulating consistent, pretty-serious-sounding comments that ARENTabout how genuinely fucking great all those things you do are, thats NOT a red flag that somethings wrong with you.

No, thats a red flag that is the next one who is required take an infinite amount of seats for not being able to handle how great you are.

6. They dont die laughing at your gags multiple times a day.

If youre not planning multiple funerals for your partner a day for how many times they actually die laughing at your gags, THEN ITS TIME TO DUMP THEIR ASS.

OK, Im kidding kind of.

Listen, youre great, and by extension, everything that comes out of your mouth is probably dripping with the sweat of a million great humor gods.

Sure, your jokes might be a little sometimes, but if your partner only pity giggles every time that gold leaves your mouth, have no fear.

Its not because your gags are shitty, its because they just cant handle you in your prime.
