- Wedding: April 2016
I’ll be the first to admit that I have a short temper. I don’t have a lot of patience for obnoxious people. my FSIL is obnoxious. She is one of those people who has to be the center of attention in ANY room she’s in. She makes EVERYTHING about her.
I guess I should start off by telling you that she was my friend WAY before I met SO. We’ve been close friends since high school and were neighbors growing up. We’ve never had any issues in our friendship until I started dating her brother. When SO and I first started dating she was so supportive of us, and hung out with us often. It wasn’t until SO and I started geting closer that maybe she got jealous? IDK… SO is her best friend. They are very close. I guess when he started to want to spend more time with me than her she didn’t like it. So now everytime we are in a social setting together she turns into this huge obnoxious person. She’s SO loud, and crude and UGH She frustrates me so much.
I feel like she knows when she is making me uncomfortable and thrives off that energy. I feel awful at the same time because she has been my friend for a long time and I definitely do not want to get in the way of a brother/sister relationship, but it’s not my fault SO likes spending his time with me. He’s a grown man and if he wanted to spend all of his time with his sister he would. I’m not stopping that. ANOTHER THING… Whenever SO doesnt’ want to hang out with her he makes up some dumb excuse that makes me look like a complete BITCH. For example, she invited him to brunch the other day and we had already had plans, but instead of saying so, he told her that I said he couldn’t go….
It’s come to a point where FSIL and I really resent each other. We are still cordial and nice to each other when we are in the same place, but I know that she doesn’t like me just as much as I don’t like her. Bees, what should I do? I don’t want to get in the way of their friendship and brother/sister relationship but I’m at my witts end. *Sigh*
