I(28F) had a best friend(30M) for 7 years. We would talk every day and even talk for 10+ hours when one of us would take a solo trip oversea.
Last weekend his 30th birthday came up and we celebrated with family. Though out our friendship people would make comments about how we should date. But we never thought it was a good idea so we laugh it off. After his birthday dinner, their sister made a comment about how I would be so great for him and how we should date.
The next day we went on a long walk and talked about his sister’s comment. He told me that I was completely perfect for him in every way, except for my weight. I was saddened, suddenly I was too fat and that was the only reason he didn’t want to be with me.
Fast forward to later that day, his sister and sister-in-law found me crying. I did not really want to say anything at first but I broke down and told them what their sibling had said. They were angry. Obviously, when I was not around they gave him a huge scolding for saying he is a horrible person for saying that to me.
He blamed me for “trying to turn their family against him” and blamed me for being a terrible person. We tried to fix the friendship but we have not spoken in a year.
I know it has been a while since this happened, am I being bad for telling the truth to his sister and sister-in-law.
