Diply | Diply

Meet our heroine (27F), who has a strong sense of self-worth and refuses to let anyone walk all over her, especially when it comes to her relationship. Her partner, S (32M), is a hardworking lawyer who recently got a promotion and a new assistant. When our heroine's best friend, V (27F), starts accusing S of cheating and suggests that our heroine is allowing it because of their income disparity, things take a dramatic turn. 😮🍿

Not Your Doormat, Thank You Very Much! 🚫👣

Our heroine refuses to be treated like a doormat by anyone, including her best friend V. Despite V's accusations and insistence that S is cheating, our heroine stands her ground, trusting her partner and valuing respect in their relationship. She even calls out V's own relationship issues, reminding her that she's no expert in the matter. 🤭🔥 Let's see what the internet thinks of this fiery exchange...

NTA. Friend projected and insisted on being rude. ESH for OP's response.
