@Dancing-in-September:  There are a couple of people in my friendship group at uni that everyone else seems to love, and I just do not understand why! One of them just makes up stories about herself that are completely implausible, and while other people find it entertaining, it really annoys me. I just bite my tongue and come home and bitch to DH about them.

@Dancing-in-September:  Yes, he’s a jerk and he talks shit about me behind my back, like I had someone tell me he said I’m so completely easy. Nice to know since he has no first hand knowledge of anything about me. I think he’s just pissy cause there was a time when he thought he could get somewhere with me and it was NEVER gonna happen. Did I mention this guy is like almost 50? Grow up already. I have seriously backed off the usual hangout because of him.

Similar situation to @strawbs:  

One of FI’s friends is married to a woman who is.. let’s just say that she is a piece of work. We try to be as polite as possible to her. They separated, after five months of marriage, a month ago because she had been cheating on him before and during their marriage. We wanted them to work because they have a child together but frankly, we’re all hoping that he doesn’t get back together with her.

@Dancing-in-September:  Once I left university, “friendship groups” pretty well disappeared, and I hung out with who I wanted to hang out with. I still hung out in groups, but they were drawn from a very large “pool” of people so I didn’t think of myself as having a small friendship group at all.

@Dancing-in-September:  Yes, very. I quit talking to him in general (not only because of that, but there were other childish things, plus he’s a total a**hole when he’s in a bad mood). But if I run into him now he’ll sometimes say “Hi” (even though I don’t make eye contact), as if I should want to associate with him. I guess the fact that I haven’t said a word to him in a year and a half is not a big enough hint. 

ETA: When I heard about him telling everyone and their mother I was such a slut I was already with FI. Thank god he never heard it and believed it. Then I would’ve had to run the guy down with my mini van. Just kidding. Sort of.

Yes! I was wondering if anyone else was dealing with the same thing. So glad you asked this question!

It has been kind of a difficult situation because everyone else in my circle of friends likes her (but many have similar issues with this person, but my group of friends tend to not talk about one another disfavorably). I just try and be cordial. At this point, I don’t think she favors me all that much either. I avoid one on one time now, and avoid going out of my way to interact with her. I no longer do her any favors. And as of recently,  I’ve stopped inviting her to social gatherings I set up (even though we have many of the same friends). I may invite her in the future to some things, but I definately need to only be around her in moderation, and I need a break from her for a few months at the moment!

Nah. Probably because I’m not really a joiner so I don’t really have cliques. I have friends and some of them like each other too, but I don’t hang out with all their other friends just because they’re friends of my friends. Only if we hit it off. My friends are pretty cool 🙂

Family, though, is another matter. A real mixed bag.
