I'm a little annoyed with a friend/co-worker of mine at the moment because she has made it clear that she does not want me forming a relationship with her male roommate. For the record, they're not dating/FWB/etc. just roommates, and while it's obvious he likes her, she says she doesn't feel the same.
- I dated a co-worker who made my friendship with my friend/co-worker very uncomfortable. He blatantly brought her into the middle of our relationship (asking her questions about our relationship, saying hateful comments to her about how she was the reason we broke up). He brought her in the middle, which made her not want to be put in the middle ever again. She told me she never wants me to talk about my ex to her again.
- She initially told her roommate that he and I would be perfect together, and even gave him permission to ask me out on a date. My ex then stirred up things, and she openly forbid her roommate and I from communicating with one another. For instance, he messaged me when she had supposedly told him to no longer talk to me, and she flipped shit. He liked a post of mine on Instagram, and she was in an uproar. She told me she talked to him and said that "it would never happen again"
From my friend's perspective, I get where she's coming from in that she doesn't want to be put in the middle again, but at the same time, we are all adults and we all make our own decisions. Out of respect, I've kept my distance from him.
Now she's started talking to some guy, and now all she does is talk about him (what she should say, that they had a date, etc.), and I'm getting irritated because A) I'm not allowed to talk about my ex (who we work with and manages to keep rearing his head), and B) I'm forbidden from communicating with her roommate, and I don't out of respect for her.
