/r/Relationships is a subreddit on Reddit in which people describe problems they're having in their interpersonal relationships, usually romantic, and ask the subreddit for advice. The subreddit gained notoriety after several posts there grew very popular for the outlandish situations they described.
The subreddit launched on July 27th, 2016. Over the course of two and half years, the subreddit gained over 2 million subscribers. As of January 14th, 2019, the most popular posts on the subreddit are posts that were later updated with more information, such as a post about a boyfriend's new close female friend who turned out to be helping him plan for his wedding proposal and a post about a husband with a terminal illness.
While wholesome stories are popular in the subreddit, outside of Reddit, the subreddit has gained notoriety for the more wild and outlandish problems described in certain posts. For example, The Cut published a listicle about such stories in the subreddit, such as "I (34m) found a notebook my wife (30f) has written a whole novel detailing made up scenarios in which she gets revenge on female friends (varying ages) of mine." and Me [22M] with my girlfriend [21F] of 7 months, found out she’s a “furry” and in the fandom, got angry when I found out." Mashable published a similar list, featuring threads such as "Me [19F] with my boyfriend [19M] of 1 year, how can I make him stop using twitch memes in every day conversation?" and "I [24M] am shorter than my girlfriend [22F] when she wears heels and she refuses to wear anything but heels." A Twitter account devoted to documenting such threads, @redditships, launched in May of 2017 and gained over 64,000 followers (examples shown below).
