They Traveled To Complete Her Dream Hike, But He Was Too Unfit – Was He Wrong To Try To Convince Her To Abandon It Too?

A man and his girlfriend had planned a trip to California, which would include a hike in the Grand Canyon, a place she had longed to explore. The man was initially excited to join the hike, but he would soon be trying to convince her to cancel her plans.

The couple set out on a test hike the day before they were due to hike across the Grand Canyon. It proved to be far more intense than the man had expected. “I finished but there was no way I could complete the dream hike of hers the following day”, the man explained.

The man explained that he wasn’t just concerned about being exhausted but about the lack of realism behind the next day’s hike. “The trail ranger told me that my girlfriend’s dream trail was not meant to be done in one day, advising against it”, he remembered.

The man’s girlfriend ignored this skepticism and firmly believed she could conquer the challenging hike alone, claiming she had tackled more demanding trails before. The man couldn’t shake the feeling that she was downplaying the rangers’ advice, which unsettled him.

The man voiced his concerns to his girlfriend, expressing his reluctance to join her on the ambitious hike. He asked her to wait until the next day, hoping to at least recover some strength and have time to do some further research.

However, the woman declined her boyfriend’s request. She informed him that if he wasn’t going to accompany her, then she would hike alone. She offered to complete the hike for a second time with him if he recovered his energy.

The man was not happy at all with this state of affairs. “I got mad because I felt like she was acting fine about abandoning me with nothing to do at the campsite, so I didn’t want to talk to her that evening.”

A Bitter Aftermath

Against her boyfriend’s wishes, the girlfriend headed out the next morning. The boyfriend was furious that she had left him alone, without anything to do.

The man’s girlfriend successfully completed her dream hike without him. She thoroughly enjoyed the experience, whilst the man stayed at the campsite, bored and alone. 

Feeling Conflicted

The man couldn’t help but feel hurt and neglected, convinced that his girlfriend had chosen the hike over their relationship. He recognized that he should have trusted her confidence in the trail being perfectly doable, but after being abandoned, he felt that this point was no longer relevant. 

Asking the Internet

The man shared his feelings on his favorite social network, asking what people thought about his and his girlfriend’s actions. “You went on a trip to go on this specific hike, and only the day before realized you were not fit enough?”, one person asked with confusion. “You then expected her to abandon her dream now that it was right there in front of her? You’re a jerk.”

The man was distraught to discover that everyone felt that he had acted selfishly and rather pathetically. “You can’t be alone for ONE DAY for her to finish off a BUCKET LIST item?”, questioned another reader. “You knew why she was there and you chose not to come along, she didn’t force you. Next time, either work out before or stay home if you’re going to be sulking.”

A Selfish Attitude

“You didn’t seem bothered about the danger of her going alone, but are crying that she didn’t cancel so you wouldn’t be by yourself”, berated yet another commenter. “It also sounds like you’re just upset that she didn’t give in when you were immature and refused to talk to her.”

Almost Felt Bad for Him

Only one commenter initially expressed sympathy for the man, but took back their verdict: “I was actually going to say he was in the right because the rangers said it was dangerous and I thought he was worried for her to hike alone. Turns out he’s just a big baby and can’t handle approximately 10 hours by himself.”
