It’s his fault he’s a douche nevertheless it’s her fault for letting a douche in her life. It’s not an accusation or condemnation (severely, we’ve all made unhealthy decisions earlier than) it’s simply an acknowledgment. She must acknowledge her boyfriends (or hopefully ex-boyfriends) douchebaggery and he or she must acknowledge that she tolerated that douchebaggery.
