The Topic:
I need advice!

The Question:
 Reimagne

I know Converatron is always the best place to go for advice, so here is my predicament: a girl who used to be my best friend, let's just call her "Megan", told someone with whom I am very close, "Matt", that she hates me, and in fact, never liked me, and began to list all the things I do that annoy her. "Megan" told "Matt" not to tell me, but "Matt", being the person that he is, of course, told me. What makes the situation even more frustrating is that I have always been very open and honest with her and have asked her to treat me the same and tell me if there were ever anything I did that bothered her. She said some really mean things about me, but she thinks I don't know. Should I confront her, or wait for her to do something stupid so that she has to talk to me about it?

You know, I once heard that if you take one girl from any given group of 4 girls that are "friends", that girl will like one and only one other girl from the group, she'll hate the 2 other girls, but only one of those 2 actually knows that they are hated.

This process is repeated for all four girls.

Unfortunately, it's very rare that everything matches up perfectly and you could split the group into two 2-person groups that actually like each other. Hence, you are stuck with this 4-person group that has to stay together.

Now, I guess the number can vary. For example, a five or six girl group, but the basic concept remains.

The problem you seem to be having, Reimagne, is that you've involved boys into your little group. This Matt kid doesn't know what's going on. He didn't know that he was supposed to keep the hatred secret from you.

The best thing you can do now is to pretend that you don't know a thing. If you confront "Megan", your whole group could disintergrate and you'll be left with no friends.

Are you sure that you're not just setting things up so that there will be a huge catfight at the end?

I say you confront her with the truth of her actions.

Then when she has some of her thugs imprison you in her garage while the deal goes down, you can convert the tractor stored in there into a reinforced tank, and come charging out.

After a few random barrel explosions, and flipping of cars, which the thugs crawl out of miraculously untouched, you will foil her.

Unfortunately, your celebration will be cut short by the arrival of the miltary police to try to put you into custody, only to be foiled with a hair-raising chase scene.

I love it when a plan comes together.

I hesitate to think what could cause somebody to believe that a site with an utterly depraved moose and a psychotic milkman as two of it's most popular characters is "the best place to go for advice."

Space Moose  

I've got some advice for you, Reimagne.

And I think I'll end this this thread now, to protect your innocent mind.
