kristenjo Posted August 18, 2011 Share Posted August 18, 2011 Hi, I recently went through a very weird situation. I have had a very tumultuous year with a FWB. I don't even want to get into it, it was very up and down/dramatic and at this point we aren't even friends. An old ex of his moved here recently and we hit it off. I didn't even realize they were still friends. I genuinely liked her and thought she was really cool and nice. However, as soon as he found out we were friends, he told her that I was just trying to get close to him and basically made me look psycho. I don't know why he would think that, it seems really creepy. She then became very standoffish to me and she asked me why I never told her we were FWB. I didn't because I didn't want to talk about him and why would I want to tell a new friend my drama or problems? Now it seems that both of them are talking badly about me. I went out the other night and noticed that several acquaintances (that they are friends with) were giving me dirty looks. I just ignored the situation and hung out with my friends. We then went to another place and ran into more of his friends including his ex. One of my friends was there and she was acting weird to me and I had to leave suddenly. When I went to leave his ex started laughing loudly and looking at me. I'm in my 30's and so are these people. I don't want to feel like people are gossipping about me or slandering me. The drama I had with this guy was not anything that would freak people out - we had fights but it wasn't like I was stalking him, hitting him, saying bad things about him, slashing his tires, etc. HA. Sorry, just tried to think of extreme examples. Please give me some advice since we all run in the same social circles on how to deal with this. Link to comment
