Backstabbing boys: How to deal with a gossiping crush
I really like this guy, and we are good friends. But when I’m not around, he says awful things about me to my friends. What’s that about?
Bill: That ain’t good. This guy is the meekest of mice, since he rags on a person he supposedly cares about. Tell him his behavior really hurts your feelings. Give him one chance to change his ways. If the dissing continues, it’s time to re-evaluate this so-called friendship.
Dave: I have more respect for a person who says something negative to my face than one who pretends to be a friend while secretly bashing me. Trash this relationship.
