Hundreds of people commented on a post from a Reddit user when he asked if he should breakup with his girlfriend who is late to everything. By Monday afternoon, it had nearly 24,000 upvotes. While relationship questions are common on Reddit, asking them on the Fantasy Football thread is not. Useres took advantage of mistake and made football related puns. Mostly everyone told him to drop her.

The post, in its entirety, has been shared below:

“First time asking for relationship advice online, so bear with me.

I have been with my gf for about 5 years. We both still live at home with parents while going to college. Over 5 years, we have had very happy moments, but also some bad moments.

One thing about her that has always driven me nuts is that she is ALWAYS late to everything. I mean like a daily thing. If we planned to see friends at 3pm, she wont be ready till 6pm.

It also extends to doing things on time. For example, this is the 3rd year in a row she did not give me a gift for on my bday, saying she has it ready but she'll give it to me later. Well, its been about 2 months since. Another example is this past Saturday, we we're supposed to dress up for Halloween and meet friends for a night out at 5pm, yet she wasn't ready until 9pm, at which time my friends were all long gone.

I realize some people just make a habit of being late, but it's been 5 years and I am not joking when I say this happens every other time we see each other. The worst part for me is that she will always have a random excuse and won't admit fault at being late. She'll blame traffic, her parents, got an important phone call, etc.

This has really gotten on my nerves and we've argued about this several times before. Before I met her, I was sort of a perfectionist and would usually be on time to mostly everything, but ever since I met her I have become more and more like her. It's gotten to the point where I don't even want to make plans with her because I just get lazy at the thought of her.

She is a very caring, nice girl and I do love her, but I am at a point where I've basically had enough of this. On 3 separate occasions, I've been really close to breaking up with her over this before but she has made false promises of changing this behavior.

Am I overreacting or is this a legitimate reason to break up?

tl:dr Over past 5 years gf has constantly been late and seems to always make excuses. Should we break up over this?

Edit: Obviously posted in wrong sub but actually got some good feedback in here. Just to clarify, she's not always 3-4 hours late, usually it's more like 1 to 2. Also, she is also late to class pretty often (15-30 mins), but she's actually on time for work usually.”

The user, whose alias is cv_sepsy, got some funny feedback, albeit that wasn’t what he was originally asking for. Some of the funniest responses were shared below:

  1. “Yeah, you can wait to see if a younger player improves but very rarely do we see somebody break out at 27 and turn into an MVP type player. Sure it happens, but not with people who can't be bothered to show up to practice on time and put in the work. My bench is pretty thin; how good would she be in the flex position?”
  2. “Just fyi the reason I am questioning wanting to drop her is that she's a GF1 in every category except the time factor.”
  3. “I mean, she kind of sounds boom or bust. When she shows up she's probably amazing, but you've got to put up with Tyreek Hill type weeks where she just doesn't show up. I'd personally keep starting her, but I'd make it clear that she is not undroppable.”
  4. “In this case though, I'd still drop or maybe double up with another big time name to try to squeeze some value out of her. You'd never start her over Mom, Sister, or Brother, so really what's the point of having her rot on the bench? Try to get what you can out of it, OP.”
  5. “Perhaps you try to arrange a ‘players-only’ meeting. Establish a game script to improve the weakness you have on game day. Some things to consider...”
  6. “2-Minute Warning: Two minutes before you are 4 hours from a scheduled kickoff you blow a whistle, stop the clock and draw up a play to get you where you need to go.”
  7. “Start or Sit: If your current Gurley is a game-time decision, then you swap her out for someone who can be the Bell of the ball. Unity Protests: If it doesn't appear that she will be ready on time, you take a knee and silently protest the injustice you have been faced with. Best of luck with the rest of your season.”
  8. “Have you considered a trade? Everyone's talking about dropping and looking at waiver wire options, but chances are someone will pick her up if you drop her. Shop her around to your league mates before making the drop.”
  9. “You're gambling, though. As soon as someone else picks her up she'll break out with a monster week and you'll have to watch someone else tear up the standings.”
  10. “He should hold for a week and see what's there next week. I know it's late in the season but someone might breakout and he doesn't want to blow his waiver claim on a desperation move.”
  11. “That's why you dump her Saturday morning.”
  12. “That just doesn't make any sense. Especially when your GF1 is clearly unreliable. You gotta save your flex for later in the weekend. If you lock your GF2 in at the flex on Thursdays what are you going to do when GF1 is questionable for a Saturday night?”
  13. “She's like Crowell. Always promising to produce results week in and week out with occasional signs of massive potential and 'could this be the time its permanent' change. It'll never happen though, drop her for a flyer.”
  14. “Depends, gotta look up her college stats.”
  15. “Depends if she’s hot. She might be a 1 week pickup then gets dropped.”
