Well, I’ve been on the App Whisper where everyone can post whatever they please anonymously. Some people troll, ask for advice, say some extremely reckless things, etc.

Anyway, a girl asked a question for guys requesting advice on a situation with her boyfriend. Apparently everytime she asks questions he chooses to plead the fifth amendment and states it’s his right as an American.

I stated that he may be hiding something or that he panics easily. No one knows if she just aggressively interrogates him or anything though. Many guys calls her boyfriend all these names and tells her to dump him. I refuse to do that due to not knowing 100% of the story. It’s possible he’s being a jerk, but like I said, no one knows what the conversations are about.

I feel like though, he may be a jerk, he is technically correct about the fifth amendment, though other guys are telling her it only works in court.

Are they right for telling her to dump him?
Wouldn’t be wise to ask more information?

If she can deal with a part of his life being private from her - who's to judge?
It's up to her.

Maybe he's a serial killer.
Maybe not.

Boundaries are healthy and necessary for a successful relationship, but not on everything. It depends on the questions she's asking and if he really doesn't want to talk about anything at all with her.

I mean...what's the point of having a relationship then? You may as well be dating a mannequin.

Hey! Leave Kay out of this.

As more Sears/K-Mart stores close, you can get your own.

No, he isn't correct about the fifth amendment. The fifth amendment is specifically about not incriminating oneself relative to criminal legal proceedings. Pleading the fifth doesn't technically mean that you are guilty of what is being investigated, but rather that your answer might incriminate you relative to the investigation in question or some other investigation. There is a fairly strong implication that you did something wrong. However, again, the fifth Amendment is about being questioned in a legal setting about criminal activity.

Actually what this guy is doing is exercising his 1st Amendment rights... freedom of ...speech... he is choosing to speak (or in this case not speak).

All that aside (and with no other information) the guy kind of sounds like a jerk.

While I agree that he sounds like a jerk, I will also stand by the fact that we don’t know the entire story. For all we know, her conversations with him can simply be her interrogating him over something repeatedly, or God knows what.

I totally agree with you... and you are right, for all we know this girl is so obsessed with nagging the guy about what he is doing all of the time, that he has just decided to refuse to answer.... in which case maybe she is the jerk.

It would be an easy situation to resolve between women.

If she won't tell you herself, ask her best friend who she's bound to have confided in at some point. You'll get everything you needed to know.... and probably a lot of stuff you never even thought of asking about into the bargain.... and she'll probably make you coffee and get her Jaffa Cakes out too.

Maybe this dude has been seeing his girlfriend's best friend on the side, thus the I'm taking the 5th defense.



In that case, asking her best friend might not work out so well for anyone in the triangle.

I may have to do that. Never had Jaffa cakes, but they sound good.

That^


And nine times out of ten those chics are sniffing around for recognition

If ten girls in a thread were touting 'Dump your girlfriend and take us instead!' wouldn't that fill your morning bowl of Affirmation-O's ?
