Guys. We've all been here at one point or another in our lives and unfortunately, I am at this "point" right now. My good friend (who doesn't live here in Idaho) has gotten a new girlfriend... but I think she's nuts. Of course, I want to be happy for him, but I'm having a hard time doing so and I'll share why.
The last time we hung out, his new girlfriend was ALL over him. I'm talking literally hanging on his arm and grabbing his face for make-out sessions while we were in the middle of a conversation. I don't mind PDA, but it was excessive and disruptive to our interactions. We don't see each other often, and I found her constant need for all of his attention irritating. Another problem I had with her was that she drank way too much one of the nights we were out. Not only was she "that girl" in the bar, but she slapped my friend in the face when she thought he was checking someone else out. Sidenote: he wasn't. In my book, hitting is absolutely out of the question. It was in that moment I made my mind up that she was psycho. She just turned 22, and my friend is 31. The age gap in maturity is showing big time, but my friend doesn't want to see that.
The final straw with his new girlfriend happened recently. I really want my friend to come out on August 11th for our event at Fatty's bar. I know he'd have a great time and honestly, it's probably the last time I'll get to see him before summer ends. When the new girlfriend found out an invite had not been extended to her, she FLIPPED OUT. She literally messaged my WIFE on Facebook and wanted to know why she wasn't invited. They aren't friends on Facebook and have only briefly met. Every red flag is going off that this girl is trouble!
Now, the new girlfriend has told my friend that if he makes this trip to Boise on August 11th, she will dump him and that he must choose between a visit here or his relationship with her. Am I the only one that thinks this girl is horribly toxic, bad news? How would you handle this situation?
