A woman has asked for advice after explaining her boyfriend of four years repeatedly makes comments about her 'future boyfriends'.
Taking to Reddit, the woman explained: "Boyfriend of almost four years keeps saying "You should look out for _____ in future boyfriends."
Naturally the woman was confused that her boyfriend would assume they would be splitting up in the future. And Reddit had a lot of thoughts on it too.
One person said: "I'd be confused and would think they were only with me until they find something else. It's very odd."
While another added: "So I had a s**thead boyfriend who would say stuff like this. Once he even told me I would be perfect for his best friend.
"We were together for two years and he was never really into me. He did that thing that men tend to do where he [was] waiting for me to break up with him because he could never look like the bad guy. That was a waste of two years of my life. I wish I had spoken up way sooner."
"It seems like he's telling you he's not serious about your relationship," added another.
Others wondered whether the man was looking for reassurance about where she saw their relationship going.
One commented: "My first thought on reading the title was that he was insecure and fishing for compliments/reassurance."
Meanwhile another user offered a different potential explanation.
"Actually, I've done what OP's bf is doing and for none of the reasons you list. My sister's fiancé died unexpectedly at a young age, so it was my weird way of trying to look out for my SO if I were to suddenly pass away," they wrote.
While another suggested the woman ask: "Are you indirectly telling me that you don't think this is going to last?"
