Soo, I have this guy friends that causes me a lot of stress. I a sensitive person, but I act like I'm not. If I ever said I was, people would be like "phfff wtf, nice joke". My main group of friends consists of two girl that I consider my closes friends and this other dude that lives in my dorm and I went to the same high school with (we just "knew" each other because we were in the same orchestra since middle school, but not really talked). Oh, and let me add, we're all freshman in college.
So getting to the point, this boy is really nice to hang around when he doesn't have is frickin mood swings. And I have to say, I really do enjoy is company. However, he is hella sensitive too, but he doesn't really try to hide it (more like, he doesn't think that he is). I'm fine being around him when he isn't like PMSing, but it's really hard to tell when he would blow up and get cranky w/ the smallest things. And this really triggers me a lot. It's always mentally draining to have to be careful w/ what I say and to gauge his reactions just so that I don't ruin his "mood". He's like a bomb, you never know what will set him off. Even the things that set him off doesn't even make sense. He just seems like a selfish person that only cares about himself. Let me give you a couple examples to see how ridiculous it can be sometimes.
The four of us (me, the 2 girls, and the boy) are walking to the cafeteria since the boy is just talking about how hungry he is. Now, there are two entrances to the cafeteria, one at the side which is faster, and the main entrance at the front. I was just gonna enter at the front, but the boy was going in the side entrance direction, and he jokingly says "Y you dumbasses going that direction" and my other friends just response jokingly "Welll, you dont haveee to follow us if u don't want to" and that boi just turns around and walks away even tho we're calling to him to come back. I mean like, he acts like a boy going through puberty. And at first whenever he was like that, I would feel really bad, but now, it just pisses me off. And it's not like he doesn't know that we're sarcastic sometimes, we hung out with the four of us since the being of freshman year.
Andd here's another recent example.
So I was doing hw at the library because I had a lot of hw. And my friends call me because they want to play my Wii down at the dorm basement. So i'm just like ok, go ahead since it was a Friday. At the time, I was kinda stressed and depressed about my workload, so I made up my mind to go back to my dorm to play w/ them because they said they missed me. So on my walk back to the dorm, I get pretty hyped and happy to see my friends. After setting up the Wii, the boy wanted to play Super Smash Brawl, but we were gonna play something else first, THEN play Super Smash. But just 5 min in when we were playing the other game (he's just doing his phone not responding to us), he just ups and leaves after packing his backpack. And I'm just like WTF, I came back from the library really happy to see my friends and he just fucking leaves just because we didn't play the game he wanted... I AM SO DONE W/ HIM. And what gets me the most is that after he has those mood swings, the next time you see him, its like it never happened.
Back in high school I knew that he had a lot of drama because of his attitude and had a lot of "falling out" with friends. And after actually starting to know him, I can see why. 6 months into college, I thought he would grow up, but doesn't seem like it anymore.
What in the world am I suppose to do. Confronting him isn't an option because he takes criticism really badly. He wouldn't be like "oh, I see that my attitude is shit, I'll try to be better", NOOO he would be like "wtf, you're just like all those other friends, fuck you" and ignore me forever (that's what happened to this other girl in high school). I'm starting to regret being his friend, but by not being his friend anymore, it would be so awkward. My whole friend group would be split and it would be awkward for them too. My best approach was just distancing myself from him w/out it being too obvious, but sadly, its hard to avoid him in the weekends since he always wants to hangout.
