All of them, but one in particular. I didn’t know any of them before this year but we have immediately grown very close, but one in particular is my best friend. There was a chance that we could have gotten together at first, but things didn’t work out, maybe for the better since we still are very close. But anyway…
One night she brings another friend over who proceeded to get drunk and be obnoxious and hurtful to her all night. This bothers me A TON. I proceed to get on his case, scare the crap out of him, and he never comes over again.
Next, she is still single and we have a new roommate. New roommate is engaged to some other girl, and wants everyone to lie about it for him. He proceeds to hit on her all night. It made me LITERALLY SICK (it was a good 20-30 minute bathroom trip). Well…after she tells me that she is going to stay overnight with him, I decide to break the news. She is really hurt, starts crying, but at least nothing happened, she went home, roommate got kicked out. Onward…
Lastly, she gets a boyfriend she really likes. I meet him, HATE HIM. Since I met him, he has now grown into a very good friend of mine, but I still can’t get over how knee-jerk my hatred was for him.
But the one that was a kicker to me was just tonight. Evidently after I left for break a few friends engaged in a little strip poker. Sure enough…another bathroom trip for me.
HOW DO I STOP BEING SO DAMN PROTECTIVE? WHAT IS MY PROBLEM?
It isn’t as if I frown on that behavior. She was with people we both trust and I’m glad she is having fun. Similar things happen with OTHER friends too. At first I just felt like I was being a friend, but has since turned into an obsessive father like role that is kinda scaring me.
