A 26-year-old woman has approached the Internet to ask whether or not it’s time to end one of her longest friendships.
The woman, who has not identified herself but we will refer to as ‘Sally’, posted to the thread Reddit Relationships; “I’m kinda done with this relationship but wanted to check if I’m out of line first.”
“I’ve been friends with Laura for fifteen years now,” she explained.
The pair went to high school and university together, and now live in the same suburb.
“Basically, we were single for a while together but after about a year of working my new job, I met a boy and we fell in love. Yesterday, after three years of dating, he asked me to marry him!

“I was so excited so of course I went to tell Laura right away, and so I texted her a pic of my hand with the ring.
“She sent back: ‘That’s cool. Relationships are trash.'”
Sally was very much taken aback.
“She can definitely be rude, especially when someone else shares news that she doesn’t have (like when I got my job she was still unemployed and told me that my job was a crappy temp one anyway (it wasn’t temp at all), but when she got HER job we had to have a big party to celebrate “the start of her career!”)
“Anyway, I’m thinking of pretty much ghosting her after this. I don’t have very many friends so for my best friend to crap on my special day made me really angry and sad,” Sally concluded.
Angry and sad seems like a completely valid response to your friend trivialising your engagement.
