Why 'break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored' Is Problematic

If Your BF Breaks Up With You Because Another Girl Is Bored, She Ain't The Problem

If you think your man would do that, break up with your boyfriend, he's a dick.

So, Ariana Grande dropped a bop-filled album last week and, uh, people are pissed.

The song is filled with banger after banger, concluding with the apparently rage-inducing song "break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored."

The song doesn't really go much deeper than that. There have been interpretations that the song is really about Ariana breaking out of relationships so she can date herself, or her pushing the dude to dump his girlfriend so she can date the girl.

But, of course, at its surface level, the song is about convincing a guy to break up with his girlfriend because you're bored and you want to sleep with him. People are really not happy about it:

"More like 'break up with your girlfriend because I'm a whore.' If that's the kind of attitude you have, stay away from me and my boyfriend because you're just a homewrecker. Sorry, not sorry." — Megan Crabb
"I thought Ariana Grande was a real one, but her song 'Breakup With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored' is NOT the move and if you feel this energy then stay the fuck away from me." — @brandalintipton
"yaa break up with ur girlfriend, I'm bored by Ariana is good and all but if I catch any of you bitches with that energy around my man, you're getting your shit rocked xo" — bitchqueeenXo
"If you convince my boyfriend to break up with me because you're bored, I may just snap your neck... because I'm bored." — Sara Ursum

Here's the thing: If your boyfriend dumps you because some other girl is bored, he's probably not really worth keeping around? Let's just think about that for a few seconds, OK? If your boyfriend would genuinely END YOUR RELATIONSHIP (not cheat on you — per Ariana's direction, she doesn't want unfaithfulness) to sleep with some girl because she's bored, is she REALLY the problem? She's not a homewrecker if he's single, and your beloved dumped you to "hit it" so honestly, I think she may have done you a favor.

If your boyfriend cheats on your and the ~other woman~ knows that you exist, sure, they're both grade-A assholes. But if your boyfriend leaves you for another woman who politely requested for him to end things BEFORE they get together, then I hate to say it but your boyfriend is the lone grade-A asshole.

The bottom line is, if you feel threatened by this song and think girls feeling this "energy" will be detrimental to your relationship, then your relationship is probably pretty bad. Unless your boyfriend is a tool, another woman's sexual boredom isn't going to be a reason for him to leave you. And if another woman's sexual boredom IS a reason for him to leave you, then he's a tool and you dodged a bullet.

So basically, if this song makes you worried your boyfriend is going to leave you, then break up with your boyfriend, he sucks.

    13 Movies Every Couple Needs To Watch Before They Get Married

    Let's be honest, Rachel McAdams is in all the best love stories.

    10
    views

    These 13 movies are the foundation of any long-lasting relationship, and I'm not joking. Each movie will show you something new about your partner, and make you ask each other the hard questions. How many kids do you want and how are you going to raise them? What would happen if you got into a horrible accident? Some are less serious though, like what if you could time travel?

    I promise that not every one of these movies is a Nicholas Sparks classic, and I also promise that not every movie has Rachel McAdams in it!

    1. "The Time Traveler's Wife"

    This movie is both heartbreaking and amazing.

    2. "About Time"

    Let's be honest, Rachel McAdams is in all the best love stories. It's on Netflix right now, so grab some snacks and turn it on!

    3. "Like Crazy"

    This infamous Tumblr gif came from "Like Crazy." It's about a couple who goes long distance and build their life together. I used to cry every time I watched it, and I'm no crier! It also has the (now famous) Felicity Jones in it.

    4. "The Notebook"

    Every girl wants this kind of love.

    5. "The Last Song"

    Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are literally married now so if that isn't good luck, I don't know what is.

    6. "Safe Haven"

    You guessed it! This is another Nicholas Sparks classic. This movie has a dark twist as well, which men will love.

    7. "Inside Out"

    You may be thinking that this one is a bit weird. Well, this movie will help both you and your partner understand each other's emotions better.

    8. "The Choice"

    This movie is great because the female lead is feisty and extremely intelligent, which usually doesn't happen in love stories. How do you keep the love alive with a woman who is hard to get, and even harder to keep entertained?

    9. "The Longest Ride"

    Originally I could not stand the main female lead (Britt Robertson) but now she is in one of my favorite shows (For The People), so I have no choice. This movie had me on the end of my seat, and as a rom-com it is a must.

    10. "The Age Of Adaline"

    I began loving the name 'Adaline' thanks to this movie. This unlikely love story and self love journey really gets me.

    11. "The Vow"

    Imagine falling in love with someone and building a life, but an accident forces you to start all over?

    12. "Titanic"

    If they don't have any sort of reaction to this movie, they are probably not the one for you.

    13. "Yours, Mine, & Ours"

    Yours, Mine, & Ours is a true classic. Are you Helen or Frank Beardsley? You should figure that out before you tie the knot!

    You're welcome!
