Best friend called me today, pissed off at her byfriend (BF hereafter).
She moved in with BF about a month ago (they’ve been seeing each other for a year, friends for three). Though he claims his ex-GF’s crazy, BF still gets together with her occasionally, chats on MSN, etc. She only lives a few blocks away, with her own ex-BF (also a friend of the BF in question).
My. How incestuous.
Anyway, my friend also knows both the ex-GF and ex-BF and is pretty friendly with them both, though they never get together just the three of them. All four of them have gone out for dinner, to the movies, etc.
So. She got offended when the non-couple (the exes) invited her BF out for a congratulatory dinner (he just got promoted), but not her. The BF claims it wasn’t a big deal, they went to a cheap indian joint. My friend says that since they’re living together, she should be invited along, even if it’s an unvitation (one they expect her to turn down).
She’s not a particularly needy person, and she goes out with me or other girlfriends on her own, but her and BF do usually eat dinner together every night. I know the ex-GF doesn’t like my friend that much (she thinks she and the BF were having it on while he was still with her. Friend claims they weren’t, and I believe her).
Friend claims living together changes everything- like a ‘standing date’ every single night. I told her to just forget about it. I guess she probably has the right to be jealous of the ex, but I hate to see her get mad this early on in their, uh, new life together. She’s told him she has problems with the ex-GF before, but he’s assured her nothing will ever, ever happen between them (again). I believe him.
Any thoughts about this teenagerish romance crap?
