Friends are supposed to look out for one another.
That is the most important thing that a friend should do. They are supposed to pick you up when you are at your lowest, listen to your problems, and support you. What your friends should not do is force you to work with someone who has harmed you in some way. But that is exactly what this woman thought was acceptable. She not only basically asked her friend to work with her r*pist and look all lovey-dovey, but she also lied to her fiance about everything.
Wouldn’t you confront your fiance if you discovered he has a r*pist as his best man? After all, that decision will have an impact on you as well. What you would not do is confront him with his victim. I’m not sure what was going through her head, but if she thinks this is the right way to go, she’s not thinking straight. What is surprising about this is that they have been friends since they were children, so for her to betray her friend in such a way is mind-boggling. It just goes to show that you can never truly know someone.
Scroll down to read the entire story and how it ended.
Right from the start, we can tell that they have a pretty strong friendship.
And she relied on her friend a lot which is understandable.
Things were going well for her friend’s wedding until she found out who the best man was going to be.
But Tina basically waved away all of her concerns and didn’t take her seriously at all.
That is where the post ended until she posted an update telling everyone what happened afterwards.
She explained everything about the horrible event itself.
And also the reason as to why she didn’t report it.
It also became clear to her that Tina wasn’t being a good friend.
So she sent her a clear message.
Tina’s fiance on the other hand came to see her which ended with her telling him everything.
Josh listened to her story and sat with her.
He also told her of his own story and what Tina had told him.
This was clearly a blow for Josh.
It is always sad to see so many people go through this.
It may not have been a picture-perfect ending but at least she got to say what she wanted to.
I understand not informing your fiance about the situation because it is not her story to tell. However, when she discovered that his best man was going to be that guy, she could have asked her friend for permission and told him everything. This was not the path to take. But if that wasn’t bad enough, she also made up a horrible lie about her friend having a crush on him and thus being unable to face him. How heartless must a person be to act in this manner? It is obvious that she never believed her friend because she would not have done this if she had.
I do hope he is because what Tina did was horrible.
I have no idea why she did what she did.
He needs to reevaluate a lot of things now.
