I basically assume that people don’t like me unless they explicitly tell me they like me and then periodically remind me. It’s so bad, I know, but I can’t help it!
I have this friend that wanted to go to a concert with me; since I hadn’t spent much time with her lately and loved the band, I agreed to it. I gradually started looking forward to it more and more and I thought she was too. Then one day she told me she had asked two other friends.. This really startled me, I really didn’t know what to think! Wasn’t I good enough? Didn’t she want to spend time alone with me? Why did she even ask me at all?!
I decided, since I wasn’t close with those two other friends she was bringing that I’d ask one of my closest friends to come along, luckily she agreed. On the morning of the concert, I was looking forward to it. It might get uncomfortable, spending time with people I hardly knew, but I was looking forward to dancing with my friends and listening to the band.
Then there it was, I got a text from her that she didn’t know if she would come that evening, because she wasn’t feeling too well (mind problems, not body problems). I didn’t receive another text from her that day and at the concert she nor her two friends showed up. I was so happy my best friend came along, otherwise I would have been there by myself.. Stupid, because they had already paid for tickets and everything!!
Since then, things have been awkward between us. I haven’t really talked to her, because she really let me down, she just stood me up! She hasn’t contacted me afterwards either. So now I basically just assume she doesn’t like me.. or whatever.
