Ross Geller Is The Worst Fucking Thing That Ever Happened To “Friends”
Ross has been a shitty person since he was born.
Do you remember that episode with Brad Pitt where Rachel finds out that Brad Pitt’s character hates her? That all began when Ross started the I Hate Rachel Green Club in high school simply because she wasn’t interested in him.
I mean, Ross has been into Rachel since he was 17 years old, when she was friends with his younger sister. That’s a bit obsessive, isn’t it Ross? But the worst part is that he thinks that Rachel owes him something, and has for years.
Repeat after me: “I’m Ross Geller and women don’t owe me absolutely anything just for being Ross Geller”.
The evidence is all there from the very first season of Friends:
When Rachel shows up at Central Perk after running away from her wedding and runs into her childhood friend, Monica. Ross is immediately attracted to Rachel, but he also starts acting like a huge asshole.
Ross’ plan to make Rachel fall madly in love with him is to sabotage any type of relationship or love interest that she has (always behind her back, of course) and act like her friend in order to take advantage of her at a time when she’s most vulnerable so that she’ll fall in love with him.
Ross uses the typical “nice guy” narrative when he speaks with his friends and colleagues about their relationship. I mean, he constantly acts like he’s the victim and uses two key phrases: “women always go for bad boys” (like you’re some kind of angel, Ross) and “Rachel underestimates me and puts me in the friendzone” (how about you stop putting her in the relationshipzone or in the fuckzone, little friend? Or just be honest and don’t lie to her by pretending to be her friend.)
Ross is possessive and manipulative
Ross is disgustingly possessive. When Rachel lands a job at Bloomingdale’s and starts to feel fulfilled professionally and personally, Ross decides to make her feel guilty for her success and accuses her of “not having enough time for him”. Eh, Ross, calm down, she may have less time to dote over you as you classify rocks or whatever, but she seems happier now! Can’t you be more supportive?
But Rachel is not the only victim of Ross’ possessive behavior. Do you remember Elizabeth, the student/girlfriend who Ross got mad at because she wanted to wear a bikini? Yikes.
