In a whirlwind of wedding preparations, our 'Reluctant Groomsman' finds himself in a tricky situation. Paired with a bridesmaid he's had a rocky past with, he pleads for a switch, but his request is denied. His friends, the soon-to-be-married couple, seem to have their reasons, but he can't shake off the feeling that they might be messing with him. As he contemplates his next move, we can't help but wonder: Is he overthinking, or is there more to this than meets the eye? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🕵️‍♀️🔍

"UPDATE: I decided you guys were right and I should suck it up and go to the wedding. When I saw Brooke again I found out that not only is she way more beautiful than I remember, but she's now *CEO of Apple and also a really rich brain surgeon*. I tried to apologise for what a jerk I was, but she just laughed and got into her private jet whilst I stood in tears with the whole wedding laughing at me. So I guess you got what you wanted, reddit, now I'm sad and regretful." 😱

"Ehhh, I don't think you're an a**hole just for asking once, but if you're making a whole thing about it like it sounds like you are, YTA. The way this comes off to me is, you're 26, and 'a few years ago,' so in your early 20s, you wouldn't even go to a movie with a girl because she had a low-end job at the time? That makes you come off as pretty snobby. Like okay if you didn't want to go on another date or have a whole relationship, but you could have still had fun at the movie instead of ditching the date halfway through and probably making her feel pretty lousy about it. It sounds like you weren't interested in spending another minute with her once you decided her job wasn't good enough. And then you mention the height difference a couple of times... I mean I guess I get it, but if the bride played college volleyball, I'm guessing there are more than a couple of tall women in the wedding party. You aren't going to be the only groomsman who's under six feet. It just seems like you're getting hung up on a lot of stuff that wouldn't be awkward if you didn't make it awkward." Replies: "Exactly this. I'm guessing everyone else has moved on from this and the bride and groom just aren't interested in rearranging their plan around one person's preferences." & "I mean, he might be. And that would be excellent karma."
