One young woman got the ultimate revenge when her childhood bully asked her out on a date. When a young person is bullied, there is no telling how deep that pain goes. In some cases, they can stand up for themselves, but in most, nothing is done. Sometimes, there are bystanders who also don’t know what to do or simply do not want to get involved. According to an article posted on DoSomething.org, a global organization, over 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year. Sometimes, it’s so bad that some kids decide to skip school to avoid the experience. As a young girl, Louisa Manning of Cambridgeshire was a bully victim. Two years ago, she finally had the chance to confront her bully. By this time, she was a 22-year-old student at St. Peter’s College at the University of Oxford.. According to *People* magazine, the two had run into one another at a university Christmas ball. He asked her out through Facebook but Louisa could never forget how he treated her. The former bully made her feel bad about her weight and unibrow, and even called her “Manbeast.” Scroll below for photos and more details of the story.She was bullied for the way she looked and made to feel less than a human being. Kids were cruel, targeting her for her weight and body hair. These comments led her to have negative body-image.
She ran into one of her bullies at a university ball around the holidays. They, of course, remembered one another. The former bully must have been surprised to see her this way and even asked her to dinner through Facebook later on.
Louisa agreed to meet him, but never showed up for dinner. Instead, she left this note for him. His response? ‘Hey… For what it’s worth, I was actually here looking for a chance to meet up to make friends, not because you are very good looking. ‘I guess I had it coming though, and certainly don’t blame you for standing me up. ‘I can’t change who I was 8 years ago, and I won’t insult your intelligence by pretending it didn’t happen, but I hope you believe me when I say I’m a different person now. ‘I can only apologise and wish you the very best. I guess I won’t hear from you again but I mean it when I say I hope you have every success you deserve.’
