Boyfriend (25M) says I’m (22F) too sensitive

You are not “too sensitive.” He is an insensitive jerk. You are a normal human being with feelings. Fat jibes (they’re not jokes) are inexcusable when the subject of the jibes has an eating disorder. He’s not going to change, he’s a bully and verging on abusive. You deserve better. DTMFA.

Bullies and abusive call the targets of their cruelty ‘sensitive’ to gaslight them. You are so right to be having second thoughts about this relationship but 5he time has come to make the break. Do you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody who think it’s okay to be unkind and put down the most important person in his life. And you definitely don’t want to be responsible for passing that kind of DNA into a new generation.

>it’s just a joke and I’m way too sensitive.

That might actually be (a form of) gaslighting, unlike what 90% of this sub actually thinks is gaslighting.

But tbh your bf kind of just sounds like a dick.

“This isn’t angry” is a threat. He’s proud of his ability to scare people and make them feel small. He’s a bully. Get outta there.

”You’re too sensitive”, translation ”You’re not letting me be a piece of shit without calling me on it and that makes me uncomfortable and I won’t change so you have to suck it up.”
