I've been friends with this girl for a long time... we have been very close and competitive at times as well (in a healthy way.) But lately I've felt sorta hurt by her...
Anyway, we went to this one house party a week or so ago -- she was good friends with the host. Well, I thought I looked awesome going there, and I turned a few heads (I am, objectively, more attractive than my best friend and the other people in her friends circle.) So her friend, the host, in my opinion, seemed sorta attracted to me. He was always asking if I was having fun, and encouraged me to go swimming (I didn't have a bathing suit, he said I could borrow his cousin's bikini...), and played volleyball with me, and always passed the ball to me, but would skip my friend. At the end of the night he also wanted to walk us to our car, and when we were standing next to each other, he said that he thought I was a really nice person, and he really appreciated the chance to meet me. It seemed like he was trying to ask me out, but since I didn't really show any interest in him, he didn't do it...
So I was talking with her yesterday about friends from high school and university, and she mentioned that she met this guy from high school at a book store and he said to say hi to me (I'm pretty sure he had a crush on me in high school.) I said thanks, that was sweet. She then mentioned that her high school friends never shaped her that much, it was mostly her college friends, like Dave (the guy from the party), and I asked if he asked about me by any chance, and she suddenly sharply inhaled, and really breezily was like "oh no, not at all." And then she quickly said, "yeah, he's a really great guy though, and so is his girlfriend.... and (blah blah blah.)"
Then everytime I mention that I've joined a club at school, she has to mention what activities *she's* doing this year, and how she's president of x club, etc... it seems like she's competing with me... and I mentioned that I had a job interview yesterday and got the job, and she said she was happy for me, but it sounded fake.
I also used one of the pics from the party as my MSN display pic (which looks good), although the pics she sent me were all blown up (like huge) and she was like "that pic really doesn't look like you, maybe because it's in B&W, you look good." And I was like "thanks.. well I looked fat in all the pics you sent me because they were blown up." She never said anything..
I know this is long, I will probably edit after, but I'm just wondering if it sounds like she is jealous of me... and if it sounds like the guy from the party did like me, or was I just imagining things? I was sorta hurt that she just cut me off like that and was like "no, but his girlfriend is really nice..."
