“I thought she’d be happy about it”: He Bought Concert Tickets without His Girlfriend Knowing and She’s Annoyed that He Didn’t Consider Her Work Responsibilities

A man recently stirred up some trouble in his relationship when he assumed his girlfriend would want to go to a concert with him. He bought two tickets without even asking her. Here’s how he landed himself in this tricky situation.

The man started, “I’m a big fan of band concerts. I’ll go to multiple ones a year with all my favorite music groups. Last month, I found out that some of the music groups I love will be coming to town in October, and I was very excited.”

He Surprised Her

When the man mentioned the upcoming gigs to his girlfriend, she said she liked one of the bands, which gave him an idea. He bought two tickets and surprised her with a concert date.

It’s the sort of thing that most women want their boyfriends to do more of. But not this girl. She didn’t appreciate the gesture or effort.

To the man’s surprise, his girlfriend got angry, saying it was insensitive of him to assume she’d be available and even that she would want to go. He was surprised at her reaction because he thought she would be excited and happy.

His girlfriend works as a teacher, so it’s hard for her to get days off, especially during the week. And staying out late on a school night isn’t the best idea for her. She thought it was inconsiderate of him not to consider this aspect of her life before spending lots of money on tickets.

“I told her I did it because I thought it would be a fun date for us, but she really didn’t seem thrilled and asked why I would spend hundreds of dollars on her under the assumption that she’d be able to just take that time off,” he explained.

He also added, “I understand where she’s coming from. But I really think it was a dramatic reaction to a nice surprise.”

His choice of wording would come back to haunt him.

Things Got Worse

From there, things took an unexpected turn. And it made them ten times worse.

About a week after, he shared the story on Reddit to ask for advice and justification. Unfortunately, his girlfriend saw the post! It didn’t take her long to figure out the story was about her.

“She didn’t like that I was calling her dramatic, and it’s been a bit tense between us,” wrote the man.

Was He Too Presumptious?

He feels that he was only trying to make her happy and be a good boyfriend.

But now he can’t decide who is in the wrong. He edited his post on Reddit and asked again what users thought. The verdict is clear; he isn’t a bad guy, but he does need to work on his planning skills.

People Responded

One user responded, “You’re not wrong. You just did something you thought was nice without considering what she would need to do to make it happen. That doesn’t make you a jerk, just maybe a bit clueless.”

Another said, “She’s not wrong for telling you that if you’re going to spend a few hundred bucks on her, make sure she can go first. Otherwise, you’re putting unnecessary pressure on her.”
