Man I love it when you say something like, “You’re overreacting” and everyone’s scared and says “No I was just kidding! j/k j/k jk!! HAHA LOL” like they really were kidding.

They weren’t kidding, they’re just poops.

Wow. I think people are sometimes hypersensitive about being single around 30 years old, and some of them take EVERYTHING the wrong way–and with a group of 50, you’re bound to have a couple of those.

I’d just leave it alone at this point and save the awesome coupon deals for your closer circle of friends 🙂

Ugh, I think that’s kind of ridiculous. You were being thoughtful, and they shouldn’t have been so petty about the fact that they’re single. You did not need to individually go through and send it to only those who had relationships – you were just being nice! Don’t worry about it…they’re just being rude.

Wow that seems kinda silly! I cant believe they reacted that way when you were trying to do something nice for them. They probably werent kidding until they realized you were upset about it.

Wow – they are the ones who need to take a chill pill!

You were just being kind and they completely overreacted – I would try to not let it bother you – you did nothing wrong!

Wow! Jealous much? Just let it go. Some people just can’t be happy for others and will always find a way to make it about them and make it miserable. For someone to actually take the time to write those emails in response to a promo code is kind of pathetic. I’m sure you’ve still got plenty of real friends from that group and I would save your nice gestures for them!

Uh, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize they actually weren’t kidding. And of course they said they were kidding because they must have felt ridiculous for ganging up on you being overly sensitive about something nice you were trying to do.

I hate to say this, but today people are hypersensitive to anything.  Just about anything these days and they look for stuff to complain about.

If I werent’ dating anybody, and received your sweet email, I’d think how neat it was a friend of mine was simply thinking of me, not trying to insult my relationship status.

Some people these days..some people.  Hugs and sorry that happened when you were just trying to do something nice!

Take it for what it is…and move on. The really good times and really bad times will bring out a side of your friends/family that you didn’t know was there. I am also at the point where I think twice before I share any good news that I happens for me. I think they are happy for you but are also unhappy b/c their time hasn’t come yet. If they are close friends, perhaps you may want to feel them out to see how they are feeling now that you are “coupled up”

I agree that is very strange.  I don’t think you should be expected to ask all of the 50 people if they are in a relationship or not!  I don’t know if it’s because it’s the holiday season and they are feeling bad about being single or what but you were just trying to be considerate.

I’m thinking maybe they were kinda joking.  Who knows really.  With email, it’s really hard to convey tone or joking.  Still very odd.  I would just shrug it off and not worry about it.

I agree with the others….Its very aparent they weren’t “just kidding”.  Oh well!  Write your own little “just kidding” email back saying “Sorry this offended you – I’ll make sure I keep the sweet deals to myself next time.  Saves me the hassle!  :)”

Yeah, its similar to their “just kidding” response (in that you know it wasn’t)…but you get the point across and smile in the process 🙂
