What's the right thing to do when you suspect your friend is being emotionally abused?
That's what one man is asking himself after he confronted his friend's partner at a dinner party gone wrong. Not only is the partner mad at him now, but so is the friend — and he's wondering if he mishandled the situation. He took to Reddit to ask for advice.
We had dinner on Monday with 3 couples (yes, within the restrictions rules in my country.)
The host is a good friend of mine of 6 years.
Anyway. Picture it, we are all sitting down for this beautiful candlelit dinner and he tells us a funny story about something at work last week. As he told it he was playing with a spoon in his hand, just fiddling with it and nothing super distracting. His girlfriend reaches out and firmly grabs his hand to stop.
