I have a friend who's head over heels for a guy she just started dating, and I'd be happy for her...if he didn't buy them an apartment only a few days after they started dating. I know, it's none of my business but I worry about her sometimes. Just days before they started dating, she was telling me about all of these crushes she had, how she wasn't ready for a relationship (she had been hooking up...meaning sleeping with with a few guys).
I was trying to keep an open mind, that okay maybe she truly does like this guy. I fell in love with Daniel after our first night together so who am I to judge, right? I was already dreaming about our wedding, what our home would be like, how amazing it would be to grow old with him.
Yesterday he sent me an IM saying, "I have the best boyfriend EVER!" Jokingly I said, "No I do!! :P" and I expected her to laugh and go off onto whatever she wanted to talk about but no, she got a little catty.
"Well did YOUR boyfriend buy you an apartment within a week of dating?!"
I was taken aback by this. Did she really think that her life was somehow superior? Was she really caught up in all of the possessions and not him? I didn't say anything back to her and she kept going on and on about how her boyfriend is "soooo amazing." What's even more shocking (I guess that's the world I wanna use) to me is that she boasts about him being a virgin.
"It's a horrible tease you know! It's hot!" I didn't know being a virgin automatically put you in the category of a tease.
I don't know, guys. She keeps bragging about all of the material stuff that they're going to do, blahblahblah and it's getting on my nerves! Loving somebody isn't about the things they buy you, at least to me it isn't.
I guess I should just smile and nod when she opens her mouth.
What would you do in my situation?
