The internet has slammed a man for asking his girlfriend to remove a “heart-shaped frame” she has from her dad next to his bed.
Posted on Reddit’s “AmITheA**hole” forum, male under anonymous username u/throwaway8238236 shared his story up to the community to determine if he was wrong. The viral post has 2,000 upvotes and 2,000 comments.
The 23-year-old Reddit user explained that he was moving in with his girlfriend. While staying at her house a few times, he noticed that she had a picture of her father when he was younger placed in a heart-shaped picture frame.
“I don’t know what she’s good for is a photo of her dad when he was young and not so nerdy. Also, he’s alive and well and she sees him often, so I don’t understand any display of family members, and c This is the only family photo she has,” he wrote.
When is it “too early” to move in with your partner? It’s recommended that you wait a year to discuss the idea of moving in together, but you should consider waiting up to two years to actually move in, according to thecoldwire.com.
When talking about it with his girlfriend, he argued that he didn’t want to see a man he didn’t know when he woke up. He said he had nothing against his father, but did not know him when the photo was taken. He told her he thought it was “weird” and insisted she move it.
The Redditor wrote: “She got upset saying she had him since she was a little girl and was always close and loved her dad very much. I told her I think How weird that she has a picture of her dad at a similar age to her now in a heart-shaped frame.”
“She started crying and accusing me of making her relationship with her father weird,” he continued.
She said she would turn the picture over at night so he wouldn’t see her, but he still refused. His girlfriend kicked him out and he said they hadn’t spoken since the argument.
The editors were quick to criticize the original poster (OP) in the comments.

“She’s right, you’re the scary one. It’s a picture of her dad she’s had since she was little. If you’re threatened by that, the problem is you, not her. photo,” u/photosbeersandteach exclaimed.
U/somissmatched said, “What a weird thing to be mad at. Because he’s alive she can’t have pics of him? and keep the pic if I was her.”
“I’m at a loss for words,” u/HoldImpressive2869 wrote, “It’s pretty common for people to put out photos of their family.”
