Woah bragging much? - December 11th 2010, 01:40 AM

Here we go! another friday night...
alone.... yay!!!
Can't you feel a sarcasm in that sentance?

So my friend, just called me saying "Hey Rinda whats up?" so i said "Nothing-" so she interupted me saying."Well guess what?....hannah is spending the night at my house! and we are having so much fun!" I'm like 'cool' so she said"Is there something wrong? you kind of sound down..."

No shit?

Then she said."Well I'm going to go...you sound kind of busy"

There is no one in my house....I'm not doing anything....

I said "Have fun" and she said "okay bye"

Don't you just love friends? especially the ones that are good enough to make you cry?


Wtf I'm not a freak!.....The voices in my head say I'm perfectly fine

I think what he meant to say was that rather than being upset about her having fun while you're not, go out and do something fun yourself. I understand from experience the allure of sitting around feeling sorry for yourself, but in the long run it's pointless and you'll wish you'd actually done something.

I understand where your coming from, I spend a lot of weekends alone, it sucks. I also have friends that are like that, and it kills. Hve you tried talking to her about how you feel? That sometimes helps. Maybe next time see if you could come along.

The best thing to do is to get out and have fun, if you have friends like that, than make plans with other friends. I know it sounds easier than it is, but it might help.

That stinks, because I'm sure that you're friend wasn't trying to be mean, it just came out that way. I think if I were in the situation too I would have been a little hurt as well. Maybe next time try saying something like "oh I'm so jealous, I was going to do XYZ but plans fell through, maybe tomorrow we could all Blah Blah Blah? What are you two up to now?" And I've felt that way too, like I'm always to one staying in, so maybe next weekend why don't you make a plan? Invite a friend over for a sleep over yourself, or maybe plan a bowling game or a movie with a few friends?

I hope this helps a little,
Megan

I don't think she did it on purpose. It just came across like that, for sure. I've done exactly the same thing myself (I know...), but I know better than anyone that when I did, it definitely wasn't on purpose. If you're at someone's house, all warmed up, perhaps had some alcohol you don't necessarily think straight. Or perhaps there's something else distracting you. The obvious might not occur to you, which in this case was simply asking if you wana come over.

Solution (lol): Bring it up yourself, and ask her if you can come over. It might be a bit too pro-active, putting people on the spot and all that, but for some reason that never bothers me... umm, yea, and there haven't ever really been any bad consequences from me doing that.


"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.

There are 3 possible reasons you tell someone of the fun you're having. First, is to invite them by showing it's great over there. Second, is to hurt them by showing what they cant have. Third, is for long distance relationships to show you're doing great. She did the first but you misinterpreted it to be along the lines of the second. Since you declined the opportunity, your friend thought you were moody or busy, which further indicates she wanted you to come over and hoped you would because that reaction makes no sense for the second and isn't applicable for the third. There was nothing negative in what she did, in fact she was being the pro-social one while you were being the asocial moody one. Next time, say yes or be the one to ask her. Go outside, have a good time. There was bragging on her part but it wasn't with malicious motive in any way.


I can rip you off, and steal all your cash, suckerpunch you in the face, stand back and laugh. Leave you stranded as fast as a heart-attack.
