The Question Club
This sounded ridiculous as I typed it, but I need other peoples opinions/advice please!|
I have a male friend who is making me pretty uncomfortable recently. We've been good mates and enjoy geeky stuff together, and use to go to the movies to see movies his g/f didn't want to (she knew and was ok, I know them both) She's since moved away from our city and they've split up. When she moved away, things he did and said started to make me feel uncomfortable. For example, he keeps dropping the 'you're hot' comment, and others, which I have tried to laugh off and say that this makes me uncomfortable, but he keeps on doing it. If we go places, he will make it difficult for me to pay (e.g, I tried to contribute £10 to a meal we had, and he not only refused, he said if I tried to give it to him, he'd stuff it back down my top). I find this weird and insulting-I have my own money and he can be quite condescending about it. He can be quite clingy (by my standards, I don't have a lot of close friends as I'm quite happy with my own company) and if I don't text straight back he will guilt trip me about it. To top it all off, a lot of people at the Roller Derby Team we both skate with for a while thought I was his g/f rather than his then g/f, because we hung out so much.
I don't know if I should confront him about this behaviour, or just start to put some distance between us. It is making me very uncomfortable to be around him. I examined my behaviour, and I don't honestly think that I have done anything other than hug him, which quite frankly, everyone on the team does. I don't even know if I have anything to be worried about!
Am I being overly paranoid?
If not, what do I do?
Also, what could you do with eating right now? (I want lasanga)
