Friend Trouble? 2008-01-18 20:50:18 Reply

Okay, you see, I have an online friend whom I have known for almost 3 years now. I met him on Habbo Hotel at first, but then we became friends, and then eventually, we both became friends over MSN (we both do not play Habbo anymore.)

Just recently, my friend and I had met in real life (cool experience, eh?) and gone to many of places to have fun. We made a lot of jokes, including inside jokes that I won't put up on NG.

Just when I think we were going to be friends forever, every time I bring up a subject, he turns it into a "joke" (as he puts it that way) by not taking it seriously. I often find myself blocking him because I think when he is "joking" that what he is saying is what he really means. Then, when I finally unblock him, he assumes things and then, in return, blocks me.

Take this for example. I brought up a subject how Hannah Montana's new song "Rock Star" is a lot like Avril Lavigne's "Girlfriend". He then said, "LOLOLOL YOU LIKE AVRIL LAVIGNE?!" He then mentioned about how she sucks, which sort of offended me. I then blocked him because I thought it would result in a fight if I continued on the conversation.

Once I unblocked him, I told him on MSN, "I'm not angry with you. I just wanted to avoid an argument." He blocks me. I then tell him on AIM [he had yet to block me there], "There you go. You're assuming things. I like Avril Lavigne's OLD songs, not her NEW ones." He then says, "Yet, if I talk to you some more, it will become more of an argument," and blocks me.

Now, if I'm not mistaken, that's not what friends do.

So, I'm asking you guys on NG, what should I do? Should I just not be his friend anymore? Should I just tell him that he's being a jerk? What should I do?

Who knew Avril Lavigne could be the cause of such conflict and distress?

LOLOLOL YOU LIKE AVRIL LAVIGNE?

"Insert Blockage"

I'm not angry with you. I just wanted to avoid an argument

Don't follow. Clearly, he's a fag and not worth your time. I'm pretty sure he's fat and likes Halo too.

Funny thing is that he doesn't like Halo, like me, and he's not fat.

Umm... so he does the same thing to you that YOU did to him, and YOU get offended? That's really fucking funny.

Douche.

I think you misinterpreted it. I blocked him to prevent argument, but about 10 minutes later, I unblocked him because I figured he'd be over it by then. Okay, so you know that I wasn't trying to offend. He then claims that I'm causing the argument, tells me "LOLOL AVRIL LAVIGNE SUCKS" and then blocks me.

Now do you see the problem?

From your masterful explanation, the problem seems to be that you like Avril Lavigne.

Only her old songs, and I tried to tell him that. That's not the main problem here. He has repeatedly done this to me on any subject I give him.

I had a friend like that and I stopped being friends with him. Just brush the prick off, but I warn you, this may create an enemy.


I like potatoes! This is awesome.

Only problem is that he actually flew from a different state to meet me... should this count for anything?

Step 1. Tell him to stop being a jerk.

If he doesn't, then go onto step 2.

Step 2. Tell (or force) him to bend over, and you know the rest.

Easy or what? It usually solves my problems.

That's what friends do, and are for. You feel like crap, they arn't going to comfort you by being nice, they are going to joke around because it helps just as much. If you can't take jokes you don't deserve friends man. Even if you don't antagonize them, it's pure nature.
