A WOMEN doesn’t think her reply to her friend’s news about his grandmother’s passing is a good reason for him to block her.
The 23-year-old, who did not want to be named, said she thought the heartless reaction would cheer him up.
“So I’ve known this friend for about three years now,” she began on her Reddit post.
“We met in college and only really hung out a few times. We don’t live anywhere near each other anymore.
“So for now our relationship is just texting and occasional FaceTiming.
“It’s flirted at times but I’ve been seeing someone else for a few months now so whatever we’ve come across has failed.
“Basically, for the past month, we’ve been texting almost every day.
“It’s always friendly, mostly witty jokes but we have the same dark sense of humor so it’s easy to strike up a conversation.”
“He’s always been someone I can confide in when I’m having trouble with men, family and anything really,” she continued.
“So last weekend I told him I was going back to my hometown and we should meet because I haven’t seen him in almost a year.
“He agreed so we decided to meet on Sunday.
“On Saturday night, we had a casual prank texting session.
“Since Valentine’s Day was near, I sent him one of those pesky chain messages with all the fun emojis.
“As soon as I sent it in, he said ‘Oh, never mind, I’m busy Sunday.” In response, I joked “Wow. You really don’t want to hang out with me? Thank god”
“He didn’t reply after that. I didn’t think about it until today. He texted me this morning saying ‘Honestly, I don’t think so.’
“I asked him why he was so weird and he said, ‘I don’t know. I have a lot going on.’
“I didn’t want to pressure him so I just let him be and decided to text him later.
“We had this inner joke where we would always say ‘That sounds like a problem to you,’ if something bad happened in our lives.
“When my dog died, he said ‘Sounds like a problem for you.’
“So he texted me later that night saying his grandma had passed. I was really unhappy with the death and didn’t know what to say so I said ‘Sounds like it. as your problem.’
“He liked it but didn’t reply. About 15 minutes later I continued with ‘I’m so sorry for your loss. Let me know if there’s anything I can do.’
“But the message didn’t go through. I realized then he blocked me on Snapchat, Instagram, Venmo and even blocked my number.
“Looking back, I know it probably wasn’t the best thing to say but I think it might cheer him up.”
While most people would assume it was her fault for replying to a mindless text, he was also to blame.
One user wrote: “It’s not okay for him to say that about your dog, and it’s not okay to talk about his grandma.
“You should stop being friends with him after he says that about your dog, don’t become a hole too.”
One second said: “Both of you are the worst.”
Still, some continued to think of how worthy she was to be the one her friend blocked her way.
“You are a hole**. He was in a bad place and approached you.
“And instead of providing comfort when he needed it, you gave it time to make it look like you were blowing him away,” said a third.
