My Brother has a girlfriend - December 1st 2009, 12:32 AM

Okay, so my brother has always been a demon. I live in the same house as him and am no longer weaker than he is. Since the summer, I haven't spoken to him at all. We were recently in somewhat of a fistfight and I finally proved to everyone that he has no control over me. Things were going awesomely.

But tonight he came home with this girl. I figured she must be another one of those girls that he smokes pot and has meaningless, drunken sex with. But then he left, and she started talking to me.

She's brilliant. She's smart, reads Vonnegut, listens to indie folk music, is a humanist. She even made a joke masturbation being the sincerest form of flattery.

Then my brother got back and she dumbed herself down. I know I proved that he's not a meaningful part of my life anymore, but I don't feel he deserves her, and it genuinely bothers me. Why do I care so much that he's with her?


Your head will collapse, but there's nothing in it and you'll ask yourself, "Where is my mind?"

You believe that this girl is worth better than the guy you think your brother is. I'd let her do what she wants, but good job with the concern. In this case, I think it would make things worse to try to do sth sbout it, but if your that uncomfortable, talk to her alone like girl talk and explain, youll probly become friends-even when its over between her and bro...

I'd feel the same way. You don't want another girl, that you think is worth something and should be appreciated, to be hurt/used/whatever by your boyfriend. It makes me mad as well when you see girls who are basically pieces of art destroyed by their choice of guys.


Geek? Nerd? More like intellectual badass.

There's not much you can do. I understand your concern because i would feel the same way. But she has made her choice to be with him, you can talk to her about it and how you feel that's really all you can do though.
