I delete my boyfriend’s Facebook friends when I’m mad at him. Am I a horrible person?

I delete my boyfriend’s Facebook friends when I’m mad at him. Am I a horrible person?

This is an anonymous secret shared by one of our readers.

I have a confession to make, something I’ve kept to myself out of sheer embarrassment. Whenever my boyfriend and I argue, which seems to be more frequent these days, I do something that might seem petty or childish. After we’ve cooled off a bit, I secretly log into his social media accounts. Yes, I know his passwords, and no, he doesn’t suspect a thing.

Here’s the twist: I delete some of his friends. Not randomly, though. I choose friends who always seem to side with him or those he isn’t too close to—just enough to cause a little confusion and not be obvious. Later, when he notices people acting a bit off or wondering why they were deleted, I play the supportive partner. I help him go through the possible reasons, all the while knowing I’m the cause.

I’m not proud of it. It started as a one-time thing when I was really hurt and just didn’t know how else to express my frustration. Now, it’s become this weird habit that I fall back on after every spat. It’s like I can’t help myself.

Writing this out, I realize how this must sound. It’s not something I ever imagined I’d do, and seeing it in writing makes me question why I keep doing it. Am I a horrible person for doing it?
