Man Gets His Friend Pregnant After One Night Stand and Told Her She Could Move In but When She Miscarried, He Retracted His Offer and Now She Feels Blindsided

A man recently sought advice from the Reddit community, questioning whether he made a mistake by refusing to let his friend move in with him after she had a miscarriage. Here’s what he had to say:

They Met Online

The man met a woman named Ashley on Tinder, and they saw each other regularly. 

Even though they always took the necessary precautions, Ashley got pregnant.

The two, therefore, agreed to co-parent and thought it would be easier if they lived together.

 Ashley would move in with the man since he had a house, and she lived in a one-bedroom apartment. 

She Also Had a Son

Ashley has an 8-year-old son who was also going to move into the man’s place. 

He made it clear to Ashley that the move was strictly to co-parent, and they were not going to be a couple. “It was made clear that this was a co-parent thing, nothing romantic, and we would have separate rooms,” he said.

After the big decision was made, he started to visit her place often to help her out. He also bonded with her and her son.

 “We went to doctor appointments together and shopped for baby things. I’d say that in the process, we became friends,” he said.

Unfortunately, Ashley Ended up Having a Miscarriage

She didn’t have many friends or family close by, so he always visited her once a day to check on her. 

One day when he visited, her son talked about the planned move to his house. “He has been very excited about the move because he is going to get his own room,” he said.

Ashley played along and made it seem like they were all still going to move in together. 

When her son left for school, he discussed it with Ashley and told her he didn’t think it was a good idea for them to still move in together, given the current situation.

The man didn’t think her reaction was justified since she wasn’t planning to move in with him until much later, and all her belongings were still in her house. 

“A lot of stuff was packed up in boxes, but I offered to help her unpack,” he said.

Ashley Had No Other Alternative Options

At the time he told her they could no longer move in together, she had not yet informed her landlord of her plans to move out, so she still had a place to live.

The Man Felt His Decision Was Right

However, Ashley thought it was unfair to her and her son. 

So, he asked the Reddit community for advice. Was he in the wrong?

People Responded

One user said,” I’m sorry she had a miscarriage, but I wonder why she thought you would all still move in together. It would be different if she had already given up her apartment”.

Another user said,” You didn’t blindside her, but you need to understand that she is grieving and won’t make rational decisions. It’s only been a few weeks since she had a miscarriage, so it makes sense that she feels upset that she’s no longer moving out of her small apartment.”
