  • You're in a relationship with him - not her - that's the most important thing to remember.

    Being the 'sister' on the side of your story I might be able to offer some sort of insight. Then again, me, and your boyfriend's sister could be completely different people coming from completely different places.

    You're not her friend, you're the girl her brother is dating. She technically doesn't have to have anything to do with you. There's nothing wrong with wanting to get along with her, wanting to be friendly towards her - but you don't need to try and become her friend. My brother dated his last girlfriend for a little over 4 years. I got along with her best out of all my brother's girlfriends actually, maybe because she was around the longest. But whilst we got along, I wouldn't really consider her my friend, and now they've broke up, it's rare I talk to her.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is - she may at times be making an effort with you for his sake - but that doesn't mean she's going to appreciate you being around all the times you are around. It doesn't mean she's going to kick off and tell him to break it off with you either.

    Sometimes I'd find myself not wanting to be around her when she was visiting, not because I didn't like her per se, or that I couldn't enjoy her company, I just felt like I didn't need that pressured on me. That just because she was with my brother, she didn't need to be my best friend. I had my own friends. So whilst I could get along with her okay - I wouldn't make plans to hang out with her or anything like that.

    Just give her space. Don't think to much about building a relationship with her and just let it happen. You're insinuating yourself in a family unit and you become somewhat of an extension of her brother. I'm not saying you can never be friends down the line, but it doesn't mean just because you're with him she needs to instantly love you. If you think about it - you're someone who's been insinuated in her life with no say so from her.

  • I would be skeptical that his sis is still friends with his ex. I was in a similar situation where my ex's mom was hot and cold with me. She was still friends with his ex. He told me that she's like that because she favors his ex over me. Then he would make excuses saying she's racist, etc. I finally confronted his mom about it because I couldn't take her hot and cold anymore. She said that she didn't want to tell me, because she didn't want to hurt me. That he should tell me himself, but that he's still in a relationship with his so-called "ex." I guess even when it comes to families they are very loyal to their own, and won't tell you something that you need to know. Confront his sis, make her talk!

  • Maybe that's just who she is. I wouldn't worry about it. If the rest of the family doesn't like you though then you have a problem. I'm sure its just her though and she's probably just weird like that since you seem like a really nice girl.

  • Sisters always treat their brother's boyfriend like a d*****t.

  • from my pov I have grown to learn that no matter how much we try to make people like us, it is just not possible. sometimes we have to be the grown ups in relationships... my advice just keep doing you, keep treating her like you want to be treated, stay on your grown woman and do not stoop to her level. a very wse person once told me that its not what people think about us but our own perspective that is skewed. just stop and mirror image!

  • Maybe it can be a medical problem of bipolar or some sort.

    Or its just her naturally, if so confront her and ask her why she acts that way
