    •  Not an asshole (9+ / 0-)

      As other comments inidcate, the poster has been in in Ms. Moos shoes, and is still carrying significant pain and bitterness over it. As much as I can relate to, and admire, Collins; I also have considerable empathy for the woman in this situation as well.  She doesn't get much out of this revelation herself other than, finally, after several years of wondering, getting some closure on what happened to her engagement.

    •  So stringing someone along is OK in your book. (1+ / 0-)

      And I'm an asshole for pointing out that eight years is too a long a time to excuse?  Jason Collins surely knew he was gay many years already.  He didn't need to come out of the closet to her, but he should have broken it off with Carolyn years ago to spare her.  Instead he selfishly kept stringing her along.  If that's not assholery, I don't know what is.
