Ugh...I have a friend, and we've been friends since high school. She's two years older than me but she's had a tough life...dad left, two failed engagements, two children from the two engagements, family with health problems, two very close friends have passed away, etc. We're fairly close, she was even one of my BMs. Anyway, a couple of years ago her and another friend from our "group" started dating. Wonderful! They seemed to get along great. However, about 6 months ago they started having problems. They broke up, would get back together, break up, he said he only wanted to be friends but didn't want her to date anyone else, would call her a slut, etc. Yeah, messy. Its to the point where he just disgusts me and I can't stand his selfishness anymore...seriously, he didn't want to date her but always wanted to hang out and not have her date anyone else? We're all a little too old for this.
But, whats driving me crazier is that SHE KEEPS TAKING HIM BACK! They get back together, its roses for a few weeks, then the same thing happens again. Its KILLING me! She keeps calling me to whine and I'm so darn disgusted with the whole situation I just don't want to hear it anymore! Seriously, she's acting like we're in high school and it bothers the hell out of me that her dad left and it affected her so strongly and she's allowing her two little daughters to observe a man treating her this way!
Okay, this turned into a vent. But seriously, what the heck should I even say to her anymore? I'm so disgusted with them both that they're putting themselves through this. Enough is enough! What do I say that's not as b1tchy as "Leave me alone with this drama queen!"?
