15 Times Being Hangry Causes Fights In Your Relationship
Even the most zen of couples can be overcome by Hanger. Things that they could normally laugh off or look over—things they’d normally realize are not worth ruining the evening over—become monumental issues. When you’re hangry, it’s as if you’re wearing special glasses that amplify every single obnoxious thing your partner does. Hanger makes you see just how stupid and selfish people can be and did I mention STUPID?!….Okay, I might be a little hangry myself as I write this. It’s a shame to let hanger destroy date night, or make you say things you don’t mean (oh yeah—it’s a bit like alcohol in that way, too). So, be aware of these common times that being hangry can cause arguments in your relationship, and for goodness sake, just keep a snack on hand. It’s better to eat 200 more calories than you’d planned that day than to scream over a misplaced mug.
If you’re hangry and the only thing standing between you and food is your partner’s ability to park the car you’re in, you will consider him the worst parker on the planet. You will have hawk eyes, grabbing his arm the second you see something that might be a parking spot. He insists, “That spot was too small.”
“You could have totally made that parallel spot if you had any idea how to drive and if you grew some balls!!!” (What do balls have to do with parking?)
Your partner cannot choose between his slacks or his jeans and you know the line at the takeout place is only getting longer every second he goes back into that closet. He says, “I just want to look good for you. It’s date night!”
You end up telling him that all of his clothes are hideous, so it doesn’t matter what he wears.
He promised you’d stay for one drink at this office party and then you two could get dinner. He told you there’d be appetizers at the party to hold you over. Guess what? The apps have all been eaten! And here he is, being polite, listening to his coworker’s story about the free upgrade he got at the Ramada Inn.
You tell him if he’s so into the Ramada Inn story then he should just marry the Ramada Inn guy you’re leaving!
A phone call
Sometimes you can’t leave for dinner because your partner is taking forever on a phone call. He is the worst at telling his best friend, who has yet another breakup story, that he’s got to go—his girlfriend is waiting.
That’s okay. You suddenly feel the urge to run the blender and the chain saw at the same time. Oh? What’s that baby? You got off the phone? Gee. I hope it wasn’t because of my chainsawing (that’s a verb now).
His skills in the kitchen
It’s a tricky situation when the reason you can’t eat yet is because your partner is taking a long time to prepare you a nice meal. So, you go in the kitchen, just to offer him a few tricks to speed things up. He insists he wants you to relax—he’s got this.
You tell him he hasn’t got this. He says you should trust him. You say that it’ll go faster if you just do it yourself. He tells you that you’re being controlling. You call the whole dinner off.
Ordering off a menu
You know how sometimes, you’re at a restaurant, you’re starving, and you’re ready to order, but when the server comes over your partner says, “I actually need a little more time to look over the menu?”
Yeah. That’s usually around the time you screetch, “Just pick something!” and it’s very hard to giggle and be in love the rest of the date. Also, your partner picks something to appease you, but he doesn’t like what he ordered, and he resents you for it.
Trying to have a quickie
Your partner wants to have a quickie before dinner because you both know you’ll be too full after dinner. You’re trying to make it really quick, and it’s really obvious. Your partner wants to at least enjoy some foreplay.
You’re not having it because you need to eat now and can’t enjoy sex when you’re DYING HERE!!! He says, “So food is more important than being close to me?” and you say, “Yes it is.”
Choosing a movie time
Your partner chose this movie time that is right in the middle of your dinner time. He wants you to just, “Have a snack” and wait so you can have a romantic dinner after—one where you, ya know, talk over appetizers.
You want to sneak a burrito in your purse into the movie. He feels like you’re choosing a burrito over keeping him company at dinner. You tell him, “I am and I would every time!”
