Why would she be friends with me if she thinks like that?
I don’t want my friendship with her to end, but I don’t think I can be friends with someone who feels like that about me.
I told my friend about it a couple of days later – expecting her response to be anywhere from ambivalent to supportive – but instead she responded, “I will tell her not to date you.”Apparently, she thinks I was an asshole to one or two of my ex-girlfriends.
Basically, it seems like she’s done talking about it. According to Mind Disorders.com, “Denial is the refusal to acknowledge the existence or severity of unpleasant external realities or internal thoughts and feelings.” It seems to me that when a woman tries to protect her friends against the perils of dating a man, it is never in vain or without prompt. Did you unwittingly behave in a way unbecoming of yourself? You can love your guy friends as buddies, but not want them to go near the hearts of your female friends if you know they can be hurtful.
It sounds like she cares about you, but doesn’t love the idea of you hurting another friend.
It also sounds like she is controlling the conversation.
Her girlfriends are going to trump you, because life sucks like that sometimes.
But if you are in denial, then that is a pretty typical response. When they know something and they find their partner in conversation faking like that shit doesn’t exist, well, continuing in that manner can be a sincere waste of time.
