I always took pride (I thought) in being super bubbly, genuine, charming, nice and social.
I met my new friend and roommate who literally puts every other girl to shame. This girl is absolutely stunning, fun, outgoing, and a social butterfly. We go out in the city and EVERYONE knows her. The kind of girl who has a trillion followers on all the social networking sites, who every guy loves, and who no one can have. I kind of figured she was like this from the start, but as the months go on, I get more and more jealous. We’re both cute girls and I get attention too, but this is ridiculous. She’s not snooty about it, she’s just SO personable. Everyone literally swarms around her and naturally follows her where she goes. It just makes me want to crawl in a hole and hide. It’s weird to think that I used to be the super outgoing chatty one before I knew her. It’s almost impossible to NOT live in her shadow.

I used to have a friend like this. It upset me at first that guys went after her, but then I realized how much fun it was just to hang out with her. And of course, if I told her I liked a guy she would totally help me out. Have fun and try to stop comparing yourself to her. You both have your own strengths.

Hmm, my best friend is pretty “perfect” to me, but not in the way you mean.
She is better than me at some things and it pushes me to work harder, but not in the dark, “envy” sort of way.
If you notice that the kind of feelings you have toward her tend to be the “ugly envy” kind, I would suggest avoiding her… that means finding a different roommate!

I kind of agree with @joya_aspera:, if you find that being around her is actually making you a WORSE person, I would personally stop hanging out with her. It’s not her fault obviously, and it kind of sucks that she has to lose a friend when she hasn’t done anything to deserve it but you definitely can’t let it make you a bad/worse person.
I would try to stop focusing on comparing yourself to her though & see if you can change your attitude.

@soontobemrsm11: No I COMPLETELY understand, and trust me, I know I’m being ridiculous about this. I just can’t help it! haha.

I have a friend like this. It’s awesome, because I am socially super-lazy and introverted, but I always meet new people through her. I think the trick is to stop comparing yourself to her, and start thinking “how lucky am I to have this awesome roommate?”

Aaw don’t worry too much about it! I’m sure she has some flaws somewhere! Everyone does. Try not to compare yourself.

We all know nobody’s perfect… Don’t compare yourself to anyone… She sounds very confident, which is very attractive to people.. Who wants to hang out with a sour puss, you know?
