We all love a good conversation with our significant others, but what happens when every chat turns into a lecture? One woman (27F) is at her wit's end with her boyfriend Rick (28M) who can't seem to stop teaching her lessons in every conversation they have. While she appreciates his intelligence and passion, she's longing for simpler, more relaxed talks. But when she finally opens up about her feelings, it doesn't go as planned... 😬🍿
