29 Harsh Truths About Dating Someone Who Is Always Right
People who are always right have a terrible burden to bear. We carry the weight of the world on our shoulders, because to be wrong is simply not an option for us. If there's a problem, we have the solution. Got questions? We have the answers. All of them. If you are in a relationship with us, then there a few brutally honest truths you need to embrace. We're awesome, but we aren't necessarily all that easy. Here's what you need to know about a dating someone who simply can't help being right.
Prepare to be corrected when you're wrong.
And trust us, you're wrong about a lot.
Fun game nights tend to escalate quickly when you're dating us.
But we're superfun teammates!
. . . Unless you f*ck things up for us.
But seriously, you should always make sure you're on our team.
Things can get ugly for our opponents.
You say "control freak," we say "strong leader."
We tend to shut arguments down pretty quickly . . .
We know we're right, you know we're right . . . what's the point in wasting our breath?
We hate letting other people take the wheel — both literally and figuratively.
Because let's be honest, we are the better drivers in the relationship.
You'll get used to hearing some of our favorite expressions . . .
Words of affirmation . . .
. . . and humble acknowledgments of our absolute correctness.
DO NOT tell us we can't do something.
We will do it and do it better and harder than anyone ever.
We are of the "if you want something done right, do it yourself" mind-set.
We are open and honest about our feelings toward you.
Communication is key, am I right?
We truly do value your opinions!
We just value ours a lot more.
We have flaws, too. Just kidding, we don't.
We love to motivate you to be your better selves.
It comes from a place of love. Mostly.
We can be very encouraging.
Nope . . . it's never sarcastic.
When you're wrong about something, we can sometimes be a little harsh.
If you had JUST listened to us . . .
We love being with you, but we are also OK on our own.
To be honest, it's kind of nice sometimes to have a break from the burden of always being right.
And it's pretty easy to make us happy — all you have to do is admit you're wrong.
Just cave. Give up. Just do it. DO it.
We are actually pretty low-maintenance.
We don't need help, and even if we do, we probably would never ask for it.
Sometimes we feel the weight of the world on our shoulders, and we need you to lighten the load.
Well, you can try. But we probably won't let you, because you'll just mess it all up.
Humility is not *necessarily* our strong point.
On the VERY RARE occasion that we are wrong, it's best not to make a big deal of it.
It will come back to haunt you. Promise.
