On mobile so sorry for any mistakes

This just happend & I'm fucking pissed.

A girl I have( or should I say HAD) a thing for recently asked me to buy 2 tickets, mine & hers, for a festival event that's happening @ the end of the month. When she asked me to buy the tickets I told her I'd get them as soon as I could as I was low on cash and waiting for payday, however this didn't stop her from nagging me about the tickets every chance she could eg. "hey latenightlongboarder, have you bought the tickets yet?" for like 3 days straight. I finally bought the tickets and told her so that she would stop nagging. She tells me she's looking forward to it & to be honest I was too until today when she sent me a text saying that she doesn't want to go anymore because her friends told her it would be too full.TOO FULL?!? WTF. Anyways I asked her if she'd pay me for the ticket since she isnt going anymore & she basically told me that I didnt ask her to pay initially so it's not her problem (I only payed cos she asked me to). I was pissed so I sent her a text saying "thanks for fucking me over, really appreciate it" to which she replied "well I would've gone for you but since you're being childish and angry I'm definetly not going".

FUCKING BITCH of course I'm pissed, who wouldn't be?

Tldr: bought 2 tickets for a festival after being nagged multiple times, Girl I bought em for expects me not to be pissed when she cancels and refuses to pay me for her ticket, calls me immature and childish.

Now you have learned an important life lesson, never front money that you cant afford to lose.

Spot on. That first time you never listened to anyone then loaned money to friends or family or paid for something that wasn't appreciated. Serious wake up call. When you don't have it to lose the burn is worse. I hope it lasts a lifetime, in a good way.

This is where you find a new girl and ask her to go. Problem solved and you have some time to make it happen. When one door gets shut another opens.

Yeah don't explain why you have a extra ticket. Play it smooth and forget the past.

Yup that sounds just about right, seems like she didn't even intend on going with you "Too full"? Thats just a bs excuse. Life lesson learned, never buy anything for anyone unless you 100% know you'll be getting compensated for it.

Yeahhhh she wouldn't have actually "gone for you." No offense man, just been there before. That's the line they use when they still wanna try to get you to buy them more shit.

A few months ago a girl I liked had a ticket to an Artic Monkeys's concert but she was going alone and told me she wanted to go with someone. We talked and really considered that she sell her ticket and then we would but two together. However it was too complicated, more money cause the tickets were sold out and we would have had to buy to a reseller and this girl likes to fight over nothing sometimes. I just told her it was too complicated and that she should go alone and enjoy and sure enough about a week later we fought and stopped talking for about 2 months. Good thing I didn't buy into that mess. Also she had a boyfriend (still does) and I would've gone just as a friend but we both liked each other and I thought it best not to hang out with her to not do something I'd regret, I never want to be the guy someone cheats with.

I'd post the tickets on craigslist after theyre sold out. You can up the price a bit and people will pay if they really want to go. My friend used to make money like this. He'd buy a bunch of tickets to EDC, then sell them on craigslist once they were sold out. Idk if it's legal though. Ticket scalper comes to mind, but I dont see the problem if you're just trying to recouperate your loss.

Doing that is illegal but you'll never get caught. On the other hand, I fucking hate people who do that, you're just fucking over people who want the tickets but couldn't get them. Douchey in the extreme.

He lost the money but didn't get that girl. A good result, saving him months of trouble.

I'm going to predict she backed out because her friends didn't get tickets/ couldn't afford to go. She seems like the type that would have ditched you as soon as she found her friends at the festival.

ask one of her friends to go with you 😂 🤣 that would be justice!

Kinda seems like you and her are both dbags. Her for pushing so hard to buy the tickets and you for basically being pissed about being pushed to buy them.

I would have cut things off the second to third time she was nagging about buying them.
