Post Reply Are you this petty?

If you mean friends that start hanging out with people I utterly despise... yeah, I am definitely that petty. I've ditched friends for good for doing that, mostly because the friend changes after hanging out with shit people and I no longer like them after that. If they hang out with someone I just mildly dislike and the friend's personality doesn't change... maybe (they usually change).

I will continue to talk to/hang out with this said friend, but if I know something's amiss with that other friend of his/her's that has me concerned for this friend I would let them know upfront. If that third-party friend decided to mess with my friend or with me and my friend still continues to be a doormat, I'm going to have to drop them.

I would still talk to that friend, but I wouldn't confide them with anything I wouldn't want the person I despise to know. And if something I said got thrown in my face, I'd be petty enough to not talk with that friend again.

I let my friends do what they want, though I do urge them to do things intelligently... if I don't like someone there usually has to be a specific reason...

I'll hang out with them even if they don't, but I probably won't hang out with them AROUND the person I dislike. Best to avoid trouble like that...

I think this comes up fairly often. Rewind 12 years ago. My friends started hanging out with this drug user. They started getting involved with drugs as they hung out with the new person more and more. I stayed at home and watched anime or played video games more and more.


Even in more recent years I've had the scenario play out. I don't believe it must be petty, I'm very upfront about the whole "I don't have to be friends with your friends" thing and I let my friend know (hell, it is why I pay so much money to go to conventions because I don't want to get involved with her friends and share a room). It isn't hard to stay friends with someone and part of being an adult is organizing how groups of friends will, or won't, interact. Hell, I've been to weddings where whole tables don't like other tables --- they just made sure they were at separate, far away, tables.


Maybe I'm weird though.

I just wouldn't want to be around the person I dislike, but I won't hold it against a friend if they want to be around that person.

I was in a situation just like that a couple of years ago. I told my friend that I couldn't be friends with the other girl, but she could if she wanted to. I guess I'm not that petty.

I try my best to remain drama free so it wouldnt bother me at all if a friend was friends with somebody that i didnt like.
I'd pretty much just never say anything negitive about said person i didnt like and not hang out with person i didnt like and friend together.
Pretty simple. As long as my friend doesnt talk about me to person i didnt like then i have no problems.
