A friend of a friend sort of thing. I didn't realize I didn't like her so much until her rudeness.

And her not sleeping with him is bad because...? I dunno, I would think worse of her if she was keeping him around for financial reasons and sleeping with him as a means to "repay." But that's just me

You don't care for the woman and she blew off you and your mutual friend. Not worth wasting your energy on someone like that. When you see her on Thanksgiving be pleasant and be thankful for the good friends you do have....

Ordinarily I'd let something like this fly by, but who are you to judge another's relationship with relationships like this of your own? Possibly she found out about YOU and doesn't think so hightly of you. Can I get in trouble for sending something to someone's workplace against their wishes?

I don't get this thread, in honesty.

ok, so somebody blanked you, and hence did not respond. is it worth feeling offended at this?

friendships take time to build, especially in adulthood. as kids, we could readily accept somebody as close friends without much effort. i think as we get older though, our greater maturity leads us to feel others should prove their trustworthiness to us.

I get the feeling she doesn't really care, since she holds no tie to you. I don't think we should be in losing positions in life.

It's not even YOUR friend, it's a friend of a friend, if they don't show up, who cares? Was it rude to be invited, accept and then not show? Sure, it was rude but here again, if this isn't someone you are around all the time and know well, you can't possibly predict their behavior.

Huh? I don't follow. She really isn't that important at all, but it's not every day I run into someone like this.

Something else that bugs me - we both belong to this same women's group. She took it upon herself to create these T-Shirts we are supposed to buy for $25? Check made payable to her? Then she flips things and says check made payable to women's group, although the flyer says check made payable to her? It doesn't pass the smell test. Oh well, there are all kinds of people out there. I just don't buy a T-Shirt. Shrug.

I really like my friend. It's just I am not sure I should associate with my friend's friends, which makes things tricky.

Did you ask this woman directly where the funds were going and whom the check should be made out to?

She may very well have good intentions, just didn't know how to run the money aspect of it.


Do you trust your friend's judgements when it comes to friends?
