A woman and her best friend had known each other since high school. Her best friend married a wealthy man, and the woman felt she kept flaunting her wealth, so she criticized her, and now their friendship is under threat. Here is what she had to say:
They Went A Long Way Back
The woman said, “I have been best friends with “Jill” since we were in high school. Between the two of us, she’s always been a bombshell: blonde, tall, slim, great body, etc.”
She Didn’t Date Anyone
The two women were in their early forties. The woman explained that Jill hadn’t dated anyone in high school, and when they were in college, the woman asked Jill why she was still turning down guys. Jill said that she wanted someone who was financially stable, which the woman laughed off at the time. The woman also noted that Jill grew up in poverty, with her mother relying on food banks for support.
Jill Got Married
After graduating, Jill secured a job teaching Yoga at a gym, while the woman pursued further education to become a teacher. Eventually, Jill met someone at the gym, and he turned out to be incredibly wealthy. Fast forward to the present; they were now married with two children, and the woman believed Jill had signed a prenuptial agreement when they got married.
They Went For Dinner
Recently, the woman, Jill, and two other friends from college were dining together, and Jill insisted on going to an expensive restaurant and treating everyone. The woman had noticed Jill’s tendency to flaunt her wealth, clothes, and extravagant trips, and it had begun to bother her.
The Woman Was Frustrated
During dinner, one of their friends, “Amanda,” asked about Jill’s upcoming birthday plans. Jill proudly shared that she and her husband were going to Greece for three weeks. While Amanda and another friend, “Sharon,” reacted positively, the woman couldn’t hide her frustration and scoffed at the idea.
Jill Asked If That’s What Everyone Thought
Jill noticed the woman’s reaction and asked her what was wrong. The woman explained what happened next, “I admittedly lost it. I told her I’m tired of her flaunting her money at everyone all the time, and everyone knows she only married her husband for money. It got really quiet for a couple of seconds, and to my surprise, “Jill” very calmly asked if that’s what everyone really thought.”
The woman said it was, but her friends Amanda and Sharon disagreed. They said that Jill might have initially dated him for his wealth but could have fallen in love along the way. Jill then questioned the woman about her own relationship, implying that love and financial stability are intertwined in most relationships. The woman argued that her relationship was different because she hadn’t started dating her boyfriend for material reasons. However, Jill pointed out that love and a financially stable, caring partner were significant factors in maintaining a healthy relationship.
Her Friend Didn’t Pay For Her Meal
Feeling hurt, Jill excused herself from the table, leaving the three friends in uncomfortable silence. When it came time to settle the bill, the server handed the woman her portion only, as Jill had paid for herself and the other two friends. The woman was left to cover her almost $50 meal, which she couldn’t really afford.
Was The Woman In The Wrong?
Frustrated, the woman messaged Jill, calling her a jerk, but Jill replied, asking for an apology for the hurtful comments before further communication. The woman admitted she might have been too harsh but didn’t believe she was entirely wrong.
The Internet Responded
One person said, “So when Jill treats you and other friends to a lovely dinner, her treat, she’s a gold digger flaunting her money, but when she leaves you with your portion of the bill to pay, you can’t afford it, and she’s a jerk for not paying your bill. You can’t have it both ways. Pick a lane and stick to it.”
Another Person Commented
“The woman is incredibly jealous of Jill’s looks and hated that Jill was getting asked out by people who weren’t looking at her. The fact that Jill refused to go out with them started the woman’s belief that Jill thinks she’s better than her. Notice the digs about growing up poor and not going to college. The woman thinks Jill’s looks are letting her float through life, and she hates it.”
