    Season Ticket Issue: What would you do?

    OK, so last football season, I had a close friend who is a woman, and she wanted to buy into my group of friends and join the season ticket ranks. We let her, she paid, tickets ordered, etc. etc.

    Well, 3 months ago, I started dating a girl, and my dynamic with the "friend" above has changed drastically. My girlfriend is not a football fan and won't attend more than 1 game.

    Do I buy the friends ticket out and try and sell them individually and hope to break even? Do I just make her deal with it? Any other options I haven't considered?

    I knew this was going to happen when I agreed to get her a ticket.

    You bet there are. You shouldn't be dating a woman that doesn't want to attend Cyclone Football games! Honestly, what are the long term prospects there?

    I say you make her deal with it. Or let her buy the other girl out. If she buy out the other girl then you say something like "oh I see how little our relationship is worth to you."

    Ugh, girl drama.

    Who has the problem with the other? Is the "friend" jealous of the girlfriend? Or is the girlfriend jealous of the "friend"? Or is it both?

    I would think that the friend has the right to keep the tickets, as she paid for them well before you started dating the girlfriend. Plus, now she's screwed if you take them back.

    And, how many friends in your group? Is the animosity noticeable? And, did you ever mention the group and other friend to your gf before now?

    And most importantly: why is this in the MBB forum?
