Uhm, so how this all started was from a dare from a friend, it was a dare to fake date someone for 24 hours. Nobody would do it with me, but Josh offered to help me out. We even discussed before we started if both of us were comfortable with it. We did acknowledge the age gap and that it may have been weird, but I had to go on with it. It was just for 24 hours, so we didn’t think it would be that bad. All we ended up doing was put on matching profiles and statuses. There was no romantic intent between us at all, and that was it really. I did appreciate that he helped me out though despite the age difference. We agreed afterwards that we wouldn’t match the way we did at that instant ever again. It was mentioned in IW as fake dating, and that’s an oversight on both of our ends. We didn’t intend for people to think we were in an actual relationship.
While I understand that that’s really off putting coming from Josh, I feel like him getting punished like this wasn’t fair at all. He did so much for the Ice Warriors as a Leader, he was there to mentor me while I was still a troop and even staff in IW. He didn’t make me feel uncomfortable in any way. It kinda hurt hearing he got punished severely over this incident, but it felt even worse when people claimed I was a victim of him. I feel bad for being part of this, and whether or not you decide to forgive him, at least know that he had no malicious intentions.
This post will be updated periodically when more information comes to light regarding the situation.
