Brother [26M] convinced my [21F] boyfriend [27M] is a spy...... What in the world
Sept. 15, 2019
Jesus Christ I am so embarrassed by this I don’t even want to post about it. SO, I should start off by saying that my brother is a huge conspiracy theorist. Not to mention a paranoid one. My boyfriend and I have been dating for over 3 years now. I love him. My whole family is a huge fan of the guy. Except for my brother. He’s good about hiding it and pretending like he does, in fact, like him, but I know he’s always had some sort of deep seated issue with him. I know this, because he takes it out on me. Redirected anger, if you will. He is extremely passive aggressive towards me whenever we interact. Super fucking childish behavior. Anyway — about 6 months ago my brother said something to me that caught me completely off guard. He said he’s suspicious of my boyfriend’s family.. and that he thinks they might be spies. He has a little hangout spot at home where he collects conspiracy theory related things and a bunch of other stuff. I guess one day he invited my boyfriend down and he took a picture of some of his collectibles. This didn’t sit well with my brother. I should also mention that my boyfriend’s dad has a high clearance government job. This also doesn’t sit well with my brother. I kind of laughed the whole thing off and told him he was crazy because I honestly didn’t believe he could actually think such a thing. Fast forward to now. My boyfriend, years ago, was invited to join the free masonry by some drunk dude he met at a bar. On vacation this past month, I guess my boyfriend shared this information with my brother. Long story short, my brother is now CONVINCED that my boyfriend and his family are spies, and that I should not associate myself with them. Btw - he has not talked to me about any of this; he has only talked to my mom about it. She shut the idea down and told him that he’s ridiculous, and needs to get help. Basically, I don’t know what to do. My boyfriend is oblivious to all of this, and I am just completely humiliated. There is a lot of tension between my brother and I, all coming from his end. I can’t stand to be around him. How do I go about dealing with this? I can’t believe this is even a thing.
TL;DR Brother is convinced my boyfriend of 3 years is a spy. This is so DUMB??? Please help
