Dr. Date: My girlfriend thinks she’s in Euphoria

How do I make my girlfriend realize that she’s not a character in an HBO drama?

Dear Dr. Date,

Ever since the trailer for season two of the HBO drama Euphoria dropped, my girlfriend has been acting weird. Her LED lights are always purple, she won’t stop playing “Still Don’t Know My Name” by Labrinth and pretends Advil is molly. I started getting really concerned when she told me that she would not be wearing her puffy winter coat anymore, as it would ruin her “Maddy Perez-esque” outfits – no matter how cold it gets on campus next semester. She also said that she’s not going to carry a backpack anymore, opting for a small purse covered in glitter instead. 

Things have only gotten worse since the new episode came out. I love my girlfriend dearly, but I want her to know that I love her for who she is, and that she’s the main character of my story, not an HBO show. 

How can I make my girlfriend realize that she’s not a character in “Euphoria?”

Signed,

Dear Confused and Concerned,

Given Euphoria’s delayed release, it is understandable that your girlfriend would be eager to immerse herself in the show she’s been anticipating for so long. However, it is also understandable that you are concerned about her behavior, especially if it’s extremely out of character. Sit down with your girlfriend and have a conversation about why you’re worried, while also showing her support. 

At the same time, it couldn’t hurt to get involved in the hype yourself. Have you considered watching the next episode to understand her obsession with Euphoria? It could be a great way to bond and affirm your support for her and her hobbies. It is likely that as the season progresses and the hype dies down, she will return to her old self, so don’t worry about this too much.

Signed, 

Dr. Date
