Girl, are you my long lost twin?! Yes, I have a friend like that. I wouldn’t say my friend is necessarily unhappy, but she def is lacking something. She and her FI have the “anything you can do I can do better” attitude.

Just one exmaple of many: She and I went out to eat, and I was pretty upset with DH over a shopping incident, and she was bragging about how well her FI treats her and then looks at me and says, “Oh I’m sorry I keep going on when you’re having relationship problems.” Umm, excuse me? I’ve been married for nearly a year. You’re engaged to a guy you just met 8 months ago. Shut up.

He talked to my DH about a boat and when DH said that they should save their money for the wedding (they had been complainign about money issues), he said, “I make $900 a week.” Just like threw it in DH’s face.

They constantly make out in front of us too. Like not a small peck on the lips. I’m talking sitting in lap, arms in each other’s hair, togue kissing. It’s disgusting. It gets sickening.

I have a friend who I also think is jealous of me, but it’s more like resentment. We were friends in Junior high and we were all kind of geeky. Then in high school, I started to hang out with the “popular” (UGH-I hate that word!) people and stopped talking to her. Then, we ended up being in nursing school together and we started our friendship again.

 

She will say the RUDEST comments to me regarding my old friends from high school. She also is just flat out mean sometimes about my outfits, hair, shoe choices, etc. I have no idea why. Ugh.

I have a friend who just booked a vacation to Europe. I was texting her about how I thought it was awesome and she’ll have a great time. I said “ohhhh amazing, I’m so jealous!” (jealous….not in a negative way. In a you are gonna have an amazing vacation and I’m excited for you way)

She responded with “yeah, but I only have europe, you have the love of you life so….”

I thought…. oooo that took a wrong turn…..

@MrsD41503:  I know! This was the first time that she had said something like this. I was thrown off…. and kind of felt bad. But, she has had some issues in the dating scene.

I hope this isn’t something that is always in her head.

I hate people like that. My sister is like this, so is my cousin. You think it’s bad when friends do it? It’s much worse when it’s f’n family

I think more people think others are jealous of them, then people who are actually jealous:)

@MrsD41503:  unfortunately I have no advice to give since I’ve been dealing with it from the 2 of them non stop for 10 years (my cousin more like 20 years) and the only thing I have successfully been able to do was cut myself off from my cousin. She can’t call me or text me. I have removed contact from her for going on 2 years but my sister is a different story because she is my twin and when things hit the fan we usually go 4 months without talking, make up and it starts all over again. She was supposed to be my MOH but she never congratulated me or my fiance on our engagement and it’s been almost a year now and she hasn’t asked about the wedding at all either. Everything I do she tries to do bigger and better so I shrug it off and let it go but it doesn’t stop on her end. Pretty tired of it. The only way I will be free from that is when I get married and move states away but even then I thin she will try to find ways to throw shit in my face, it’s just how she is.

@MrsD41503:  We *used* to know a couple like this…as in past-tense. The great thing about being an adult is you don’t have to keep talking to them or hanging out with them if you don’t like their attitude.
