If You Can’t Admit When You’re Wrong, I Can’t Forgive You for Being Stupid

It sucks to have to admit when you’re wrong, but it shouldn’t be that difficult. This seems to happen with guys a lot — at least the ones I’ve dated — and I’m pretty much over it. If you can’t own up to being wrong about something, I can’t forgive you for being so stupid:

  1. Mature adults can admit when they’re wrong. So maybe you’re just too immature to me. I don’t want a spoiled boy thinks he’s allowed to believe he’s always right. I want a man who not only can recognize when he’s wrong, but can verbally admit it too. Boys stay in denial, but men can face the truth, and that’s all I want from you.
  2. It should hurt you to hurt someone you love. If you’re in the wrong, then why don’t you feel bad for hurting me? Even when I don’t believe I’m wrong, if I unintentionally hurt someone I love, then I feel bad. Obviously you’re above those mediocre emotions, so I guess I’m just too mediocre to waste my time on you.
  3. Saying sorry isn’t that hard. Especially when you love someone. You should want to apologize because in the end, it’s going to make us both feel better. You can’t apologize if you’re not sorry, and you can’t be sorry if you can’t admit you’re wrong. I’ll be forever waiting for an apology that, with your attitude, will never come.
  4. Grow the hell up. I’ve already said that I want to be with a man, not a boy. That’s what you’re acting like — a childish little boy. I don’t know who let you act like this before, but it’s going to end with me —  at least if you want to continue being with me. Mommy might have spoiled you rotten, but I’m not your mommy, so keep that BS between you and her.
  5. Nobody is right all the time. Not even me, though I’d like to believe otherwise. Honestly, I think everyone would like to believe otherwise, but deep down you know it’s not the truth. All I’m asking is that you admit to it. Admit you’re not God, and surrender to the fact that you’re human just like the rest of us. You’re not always right, and I’m not always wrong. So just accept it.
  6. I’ll admit when I’m wrong too. I’m not a hypocrite here. I know I’m not always right, but the difference between you and me is that I can admit when I’m wrong. That’s how I know it might be hard, but it’s not as difficult as you make it out to be. Bottom line: if I can get over my pride and say I’m wrong, why can’t you?
  7. You’re a dumbass. No respectable girl is going to put up with a guy who thinks he’s right all the time. You can pass on me and move on to the next girl with the hope that she’ll put up with your BS, but good luck with that. Who wants to be with someone who bows down to them and lets them believe they’re always in control? I’m looking for something real. So if you want an honest woman, you better be straight with me too, even when you’re wrong.
