After Abbey opened up about her lifelong struggle with an eating disorder, Joe was very quick to interject that it’s “ruining her life and ruining [their] relationship.” This led Jenn to provide quick and, in our opinion, very accurate analysis: Joe is controlling. Yet somehow a chorus of “I think you are most comfortable when you are in control”; “As long as you are in control I don’t think this is going to be a healthy dynamic”; “it’s very hard for you to let go of control” didn’t strike a chord with the GGW creator, who later whined to his partner about not sticking up for him in front of the group. He doesn’t tell her what to do, sure, and we’re guessing the whole “make the bed” incident was just some sort of kinky role play?

4. I THINK I WANNA MARRY YOU

As women, we’re not asking for fireworks and champagne under the Eiffel Tower, but putting the ask in the form of a question (and getting down on one knee) certainly helps.
