Am i wrong for betting on people’s relationship duration?
So back in school, you know how it’s common for people to jump from one relationship to another? Thing about me is that I take relationships seriously, so to see them jumping around is pretty weird, but hey, they do them. However, I decided to play a game relating to their relationship’s duration.
Basically I have a mental bet. Say if someone got together, I’ll bet a duration like they’ll last 2 weeks. If it is 2 weeks, I’ll treat myself something, let’s say McDonald’s. If it’s longer than 2 weeks, I’ll buy another type of thing I want. It’s a win-win to me. But if it’s longer I’ll make another bet after I get my prize.
Back then, it’s way too predictable and I kept treating myself everytime I predicted it right. Also, the more popular the couple, the bigger the prize of my mental bet.
One time, my classmate got together with this girl, and I immediately bet they’ll break up in 3 weeks. However, they broke up too early, like just a week after. Technically I won my bet a lil early but I want it to be right. So I talked to the both of them, convincing them that they should try to make it work, not give up early. So then, they got together again and I still bet the same date, which is 2 weeks from then. And guess what? They broke up exactly as I predicted. So I treat myself a new phone cause I got it right.
Also I find it enjoyable when they started to cry and wonder why they broke up like hahahhahah what a bunch of immature teenagers.
My most recent bet was last year, I made a bet that my collegue will break up with his gf after 1 year. Guess what? They broke up 2 days ago. And with that, I bought myself a PS5 just to celebrate that I got it right.
At this point you might think I’m the a**hole but, thing is, I didn’t ask them to break up. I didn’t try to sabotage them at all. I’m simply just predicting when they’ll break up (They 100% will anyways) and I just celebrated it when I got it right.
Some of my friends said that ITA. But how tho? Let me know.
