14. Rich Guy Gets Ghosted
FearlessLingonberry shared, “So, I knew this girl who was a sex worker. I had known her for years, and we had even briefly dated before she got into that line of work. She was always really open about what she was doing and that she enjoyed it. In fact, one of the reasons things hadn’t worked out was that she was way too kinky for me, and I’m pretty open-minded. Fast forward like 10 years, and I had inherited a bunch of money. Not obscenely wealthy, but enough to change my lifestyle. She was one of the few people who were there for me consistently through some dark times, and I was there for her in the same way. I valued her friendship.
“She started talking about how she wasn’t happy anymore and wanted to change directions. I ended up giving her $10,000 that she needed to go back to school, not a loan, just gave it to her. I don’t know what she spent it on, drugs probably, but she didn’t go back to school. She abruptly cut off contact with me (after TWELVE YEARS) and that was that. I still have money, so I’m not even mad about that. She was a legitimately huge support in my life for a long time, when there was no expectation of her ever getting anything out of it, so I’m still grateful for that. I think her demons just got the best of her, and she’s probably really ashamed or maybe even dead, but it was such a painful betrayal.”
