Too long, didn’t read
Here’s how the Reddit community reacted to the story:
“Why not spend a bit more time working through your issues together and see how that goes.”
“I'd be more pissed he spent your entire engagement party with her.”
“This is like the story of the scorpion and the frog and you being all shocked Pikachu when he keeps lying to you.“
“Ignoring you at your engagement party to spend time with her is a bigger deal than him having kissed her 10 years ago.”
“Some people will tell you a kiss 10 years ago is no big deal, and maybe they’re right, but he actively lied to you NOW.“
“Just talk about your feelings and how he feels about her. Ask if he thinks she is a risk to his commitment to fidelity.“
Redditors delicately suggested that the couple might not be prepared for engagement, Let alone marriage.
They pointed out that OP’s trust issues and insecurities were so glaring in the post that her partner was probably scared she would overreact to an old college kiss—which she did.
They definitely needed more time to work through issues. The point would come when they were ready for a union, but sadly, it wasn’t quite yet.
