Her “Alpha Male” Boyfriend Thought He Was Jeff Bezos Because He Ran a Small Dropshipping Business, but She Made Him Cry With One Mean Comment

A woman recently shared a story about how her boyfriend lost his humility when he started a small business. He looked down on anyone who wasn’t an entrepreneur and started claiming he was an alpha male, but when she pushed back, he crumbled like a crouton.

The woman wrote, “Around a year ago, I moved to the US for university. In my first week there, I met my now-boyfriend. However, six months ago, he dropped out to start a dropshipping business.”

“I tried to persuade him to stay in school for a backup plan,” she added. “But he explained to me that the dropshipping market is huge and that he’ll make more money than he would if he got his degree.”

Her boyfriend’s business is doing well. He’s making around $3,000 to $4,000 per month. However, his success has come at a cost.

He believes that anyone who still attends university, makes less than him, or doesn’t own their own business is inferior to him. He spent his time watching YouTube business videos and was always trying to convince people that he was an “alpha male.”

The woman got home from work. She was excited to tell her boyfriend about a visitor who came to her restaurant. She had really clicked with the visitor and enjoyed their time together.

However, her boyfriend instead started peppering her with questions, asking how old this visitor was, and mocking her earnings.

She told her boyfriend that the visitor was around her grandmother’s age. Then he started making fun of her for still needing to work at such an age and not having enough to retire.

The woman had enough. She told her boyfriend that the surprise visitor was the owner. She explained how the visitor and her husband were multimillionaires and had made more than his business would ever make.

The man was hurt. He locked himself in the bathroom and started crying. He told the woman that she should stop shaming him for his business; it pays their rent.

The woman feels terrible that she made her boyfriend cry. She is grateful that his job let them afford a better place, but she thought he needed to learn a lesson for being so snobby about other people’s jobs. She wrote to an internet forum to ask if she was justified in her reaction.

One commenter said, “Do you really want to be involved in a long-term relationship with someone who feels the need to put everyone else down in order to feel good about himself? He’s already turning that attitude on you since you make less money than him, and it’s only going to get worse.”

While another poster replied, “The guy is strutting around like a god who clearly thinks you should be grateful for how well his business is doing and belittling others not in that position. If his business doesn’t work out, he’ll be in a weaker position than someone with a degree.”
