Eliza50 Posted July 2, 2019 Share Posted July 2, 2019 I've posted about her before. She's an old time friend (and colleague) with impossibly high standards. Three months ago, out of the blue, over a cup for coffee, she started complaining about many things I 'do wrong' according to her, some of them about her, some of them stuff like what time I go to bed, why don't I stay out late, why do I prefer emails over phone and so on...for over an hour. We patched things up (I had apologised for some of it, mainly because she was very upset and there was no way we could have a normal discussion but also because I felt she was right about some of it) but, now, once more, I think she's upset with me. I have no idea why (I've probably said something that annoyed her? I can't think of anything) and for the last 2 weeks she's been acting weird. She's been declining all my suggestions to meet, even when they include other friends (we usually hang out with a married couple, the husband is also our colleague and we've all known each other for like 20 years and the wife has also become a friend). Last Sunday, we were both invited to a party and she barely said 5 words to me and those were just to ask how my family is. I told her that the couple and I are thinking of going to the beach next Saturday and would she like to come, she said I don't think I can make it, I said oh, do you have plans and she said yeah but I can't tell you right now (what does that even mean?). So, it's not like she's stopped talking to me but she's been acting like she wants to keep her distance. Do I ask her what's wrong or do I give up on her? I'm more inclined towards the second option because this is a person who has stopped being friends with people for the silliest reasons (I know of at least 6 people she's done that to), she takes everything personally and like it's an attack on her. Also, what do I tell our common friends, if anything? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Link to comment
