They’d fallen out

“My girlfriend has been giving me the silent treatment and demanding that I apologize to her for ‘abandoning’ her at a tradeshow,” the 38-year-old began. “It’s a major annual event in our city, and the company she works for has a stall there.”

The man had taken two weeks’ leave from his own job to help out at the show, working as a chef and demonstrating the kitchen products the company sells. He wasn’t being paid for it.

The man explained that, one day at the show, a guy whom his girlfriend had once had an on-off fling with called her. He was at the show too and asked if she wanted to meet for coffee and have a catch-up.

The man wasn’t the jealous type, so he wouldn’t have minded her going. But he did mind that she went off to meet this guy without telling him where she was going, leaving him working for free on her company’s stand.

They didn’t get along

There was, however, a reason why the woman might have wanted to keep her meeting secret. The two men had met a few times in the two years that the man had been dating his girlfriend, and they didn’t like each other.

In fact, the guy his girlfriend went to meet had told her that the man was “no good” for her and that if she didn’t leave him, then they could no longer be friends.

Eventually, the man went looking for his girlfriend and discovered who she was. He said they were sitting a little too close together for comfort. When his girlfriend saw him, she quickly moved away from the guy, looking like a deer caught in the headlights.

The man walked away without a word. He left the show and crossed the road to where his car was parked. His girlfriend gave chase, and when she caught up with him, she was furious at him for a) not saying hello to her friend and b) leaving her to cross a busy main road on her own.

He asked the internet

Everyone backed the man. “I understand that in order to make a relationship work, sometimes you play dumb, mute, or deaf, and that sometimes you let slide things that frustrate you,” said one. “But becoming a doormat should never be on the cards.”

“Trust her reaction to being caught,” urged another. “She knew she was doing something shady, hence the deer-in-headlights act. Don’t let her flip this to make you the bad guy.”
