We've all been there - caught in the middle of a heated debate between friends with opposing views. One man found himself in this exact situation when his friend Paul (34M) dragged him into an argument with Allie (30sF), a staunch believer in naturopathy. As a pharmaceutical industry professional, he was supposed to be Paul's secret weapon against Allie's anti-modern medicine stance. But was his response too condescending? Let's dive into the story. 😏
