If they’re not willing to work on being a better boo to you, it may be time to find someone who is.

Do you want to be with someone who can’t take responsibility for their own actions? While no one can be everything to one person, constantly comparing you to others is a jerk move. Do they fly into a rage when they don’t get their way, or refuse to speak to you for days at a time?

He calls people who aren’t his boss, “Boss.” She’s a terrible tipper.
