I’ve been planning to move from my hometown to the larger city nearby to move in with my best friend. Since we’ve had time to plan ahead, we’ve spent the past two months looking for just the perfect place. After a couple of false starts, we finally found a great spot and were planning to sign the lease this weekend.
However, much to my absolute shock, before I left to drive into the city for the lease signing, she called me and told me that she couldn’t move in with me. I guess in the past month, her on-again off-again boyfriend of a year told her that he wanted to move in with her. Of course she jumped at the chance but was too afraid to tell me because she knew I would be angry and upset.
Well guess what: I am angry and upset! I start work in two weeks with no place to live; it would have been nice if she could have just been upfront with me from the beginning so I could have had more time to look for my own place. When I got upset with her, she turned it around and attacked me for not being supportive. I am so frustrated with her selfish behavior and I really can’t believe she chose her boyfriend over me. I am so hurt by this that I just want to walk away from this friendship altogether. Should I forgive her for this?
