The $100 Question: Who's the Real Winner Here? 🏆

Our protagonist and Jenny's friendly rivalry took an unexpected turn when a debate about friendships between men and women led to a daring $100 bet. Jenny was confident that her male friends wouldn't take her up on a hookup offer, but the results left her shocked and upset. When our protagonist insisted she pay up, the group was divided. The men sided with him, while the women thought he was being unreasonable. It's a classic tale of 'be careful what you bet on.' So, who's right in this situation? Let's see what the internet has to say... 🍿

"NTA - Your friend is a major AH. It's one thing to be naive and put faith in your friends. It's completely another to be willing to 'test' your supposed friends like that. What did she think would happen?? All 3 of them would say some noble BS like I don't see you that way anymore? Then what, she says haha nevermind, I was just testing you? Either way, she's pretty much gonna lose those friends. It's really f**ked up for her to use them just to try to prove you wrong. And kind of unbelievable that not one person in your friend group (even you) spoke up and said - are you sure you wanna do that, it could backfire? I mean I probably wouldn't have asked her to pay up given how spectacularly this failed. But shame on her for being unwilling to pay AND f**king over her friends. No matter how confident you are, you don't enter into a bet you aren't willing to lose. But I would agree with you, OP. If you dated someone and broke up with them, you can't remain platonic friends 95% of the time. If you had sexual attraction to them, that doesn't usually just go away. Especially for guys."
