Lately I feel like I have the word "HOMEWRECKER" stamped to my forehead. Not that I actually do anything, but it seems to be a common assumption. A few weeks ago, my friend DK (who's been dating this girl since the summer) stood me up to hang out for 3 nights in a row. Finally, I asked what was going on and he said that "it wouldn't be fair to his girlfriend" (ie- what actually happened is that she told him he couldn't hang out with me anymore). This caught me off guard for a number of reasons, but mainly because he had confided in me earlier that he wasn't into the relationship very much anymore and was starting to get bored. The next thing that irked me is that I feel like our friendship never meant much to him in the first place. I have trouble respecting a guy who gets led around on a leash by some bitch. I don't even want to imagine what I would do if my boyfriend told me I couldn't hang out with one of my friends anymore. He tried to seek me a out a few days ago and I proceeded to tell him off for his immature behavior- all of which he admitted to (go figure). Anyways, point being, DK has achieved "bitch" status in my mind and his girlfriend sucks (note- all of his friends agree with me on this one).
Second point of order: It was my ex MH's birthday a few days ago. I haven't seen or spoken to him in maybe a year and a half, but I left him a facebook wall message saying nothing more than "Happy birthday, if you're home for break we should catch up." The next day, I see that my wall post has been deleted and he has de-friended me on facebook. I send a message asking him what's up and his response is "my girlfriend doesn't like me being in contact with my ex's." Now, I could understand her worrying if we actually saw each other or spent ANY amount of time together at all. More than anything, I'm offended for the same reasons offered in case 1, but also because I spent a good chunk of my high school life with this boy and we go way back- as friends too. I just don't understand boys today. What's so appealing about a man who can't stand up for himself?
So here I am, hated by girlfriends of friends, trying to write a research paper and listening to the people who live above me do something that sounds like tumble down a flight of stairs. Less than a week til home. Yes.
