Woman Gets Tickets To Rock Boyfriend Imagine Dragons, It Didn’t Go Well
Anniversary gifts can always be a little tricky when it comes to relationships. Case in point – a 25-year-old Reddit user shared her story of buying tickets for her boyfriend Imagine Dragons only to have the joy of doing it quickly and leaving her wondering if it was a “a hole” move to do it .
Posted in the Reddit thread AITA (Am I the Asshole?), the writer reveals that she is a 25-year-old woman who has a three-year relationship with her music-loving boyfriend and has decided to gift him concert tickets for her anniversary.
“He and I aren’t into the same music so we don’t go to a lot of shows together, but when we went together it was a lot of fun,” she wrote. “My boyfriend loves bands. I don’t really know how else to put it. He listens to a lot of rock music from these bands that I’ve never heard of. Imagine the Dragons coming to our town this summer. I know who they are and i know they are a band so i thought this would be an awesome gift for my boyfriend i bought us the tickets and i was very excited my excitement was short lived it turned into sadness very quickly.
Setting the scene, she continues: “I bought him other little things, but I put the confirmation of the ticket in an envelope with the card that I made for him. He opens the envelope and I come across an ‘Uhhhhhh…what?'”
She explained that she wanted to know more about the music he likes, but he replied, “It’s not the music that I live for. Just because a band has instruments doesn’t mean it’s is what I like.”
After the boyfriend explained to her that she should try to get her money back or resell the tickets, she felt his response was hurtful and it made her cry. She then offered, “He’s now upset saying it’s like I didn’t get him anything for his birthday since I won’t be reselling the tickets to get different tickets and I’m not going to suck it up and go with it. him after he’s made it very clear how he feels.”
Although she initially admitted he “likes bands” and prefers “rock music”, chances are her reaction leads you to suspect he was looking for something a little heavier. . Although Imagine Dragons tend to be lumped in with rock at awards shows and on the Billboard charts, the band leans towards the more pop side of the spectrum and there are many different subgenres of rock and metal, as we detailed in the gallery below. That said, Imagine Dragons are far from being a shoegazer on stage and put some thoughtful and entertaining value into their live shows.
After explaining the story in the Reddit thread, one early commenter said, “It’s the equivalent of taking someone to a restaurant and forcing them to eat food they don’t like. not, and call it a giveaway. So you get surprised and angry when they don’t like it? You could have just looked at some of his playlists to see which artists he likes before you book the tickets.
She then replied, “This comment here makes me think that maybe I overreacted and I’m not as much of a victim as I thought I was.”
Another commenter offered, “OP’s gift is on the same level as the ‘aunt/grandma who doesn’t really know me’ gift level. singer. Because they both play the piano. My brother had already moved out but he put it away in one of my parents drawers in the living room which was never used so it sat there for years.”
Yet another added: “It’s the thought that counts, but there was no thought here. Worse still by the fact that it’s an event and not an object, so you can’t just put it in a closet somewhere, you’re going to be expected to actually use the tickets if you accept the gift.”
After reading the comments on the thread, she wrote, “I spoke to my boyfriend and apologized. After reading these replies, I learned that I was acting selfish. showed that I didn’t know anything about his taste in music, and that’s more than likely why he got upset. I’m going to sell the tickets and he apologized for hurting me. He said we could find another show and that he would split the ticket price with me.
