If You’re Hooking Up with My Bro, Don’t be a B*tch!
I’ve got a good group of guy friends here in LA that I grew up with. Having friends from home alongside me in such a huge city is amazing. These guys are literally like family. I consider them brothers and if, for whatever reason, I had to call them and ask them to pick me up somewhere an hour away and to bring cash with them…they would do it in an instant and they would do it at any hour, too. Our bond is solid.
I have watched them go through girls the same way that they have watched me go through guys. I make it clear to any guy that I date that they need to respect these guys and treat them the same way they would treat my own brother if I were introducing them to him. For the most part, the guys that I have dated have totally understood this and everything on this frontier has gone rather smoothly. But the girls that my dudes date aren’t always understanding.
Especially because they hate the idea that my opinion of them matters much more than their opinion of me. A few girls have made me uneasy, but Meredith, this total rude B*%ch that my good friend started dating not too long ago has completely overstepped every boundary she was ever given.
She’s obnoxious. She’s cutting. She’s bitter. Her conversations are of no substance and I don’t think she even laughs unless she is wasted. She is relatively useless in my circle of friends, but all of that is fine, really. The real problem arises here: She is a total asswipe to me and my other friends (the dudes included) who are part of this hometown clan here in LA. She talks to us like we don’t even KNOW Nick (our friend she’s dating). We are all artists of a sort and she feels the need to constantly remind us that we don’t have “real” jobs.
[Please, take note here, that she has a desk job that she loathes. Funny, isn't it, the correlation some people place between "a real job" and "a job you hate"?]
She tries to find “dirt” on us all and reports it back to Nick, as if he doesn’t already know every detail of our lives. The good news is that Nick is breaking up with her next week.
The bad news is that he might have been willing to work through her bad qualities if one of them had not been her eagerness to alienate him from his own friends.
So, good work, Meredith. I’ll have fun this week seeing you because I’ll do it KNOWING that you’ll soon be gone forever.
