ggp8 Posted October 20, 2017 Share Posted October 20, 2017 I’m facing a bit of a conundrum. About a month ago, I told my friend that I would like to go to Europe with her this summer. But after I did that, I started thinking about that choice. My friend has a bit of a drinking problem and can get pretty wild and out of hand. I now realize that going with her would be an unwise choice, and I wouldn’t feel all that safe – I feel like it would increase the chance that we may get in trouble, let alone putting a bit of responsibility on me to monitor her. I mentioned this to my boyfriend, and that I’d rather go with him – he and I both feel like this would be the safer choice. And now he really wants to go with me. The problem is, my friend is still under the assumption that her and I are going to go. I don’t know how to break it to her that I’d rather go with my boyfriend. I don’t want to just say “Hey, I don’t feel like I’d be as safe with you because you have a drinking problem and can easily get out of hand”. I don’t want to hurt her feelings, insult her, or start something. I wish I had never told her about Europe in the first place. I’m going to be seeing her Saturday night, and I fear that she is going to bring up how excited she is. Do you have any advice on what I can say to back out of going with her? Link to comment
