interpersonal relationship mathematics
Person A gets along with person B. They are friends.
Person A gets along with person C. They are friends.

Person B thinks that person C is an annoying jerk, and doesn't know how it's possible that person A (or any other person) likes them.

Hmm.

Now just replace "they are friends" with "they are dating" and "they have been best friends since middle school" and you have the ever-popular girlfriend's evil best friend scenario - one that plays out every day in every city of the continental United States and Canada.

Although I think stronger terms are used than jerk.

Re:

totally unrelated note

chris baldwin of bruno fame has recently self-published a novel. you should go and check it out. you might want to consider that as an option. he's in a similar place to you, financially, too. www.morrispublishing.com is the place to go. oh, yeah. I'm seriously considering it for my serial novel experiment / novel that i'm working on. :)

Hm. Why doesn't A invite B and C over for tea?

Preferably tea very heavy with Valerian.

Re:

fear of a beat-down betwixt them. :o
batshua From: batshua Date: le 20 mai 2003 15:40 (UTC) (Lien)
That's why I suggested Valerian.

Re:

ah.... but it would be sufficiently hard to get one to agree to take it, and then have the other come in... very disagreeable people, these two. so sad. if only I had the skills of aaron hacohen.....

Well, if one of them takes it first, and then the other one shows up and you offer him some before he enters your room…

Re:

there was nearly a fight tonight. except one of them seems to be a pacifist. how curious. would have been...oh so bad.
batshua From: batshua Date: le 20 mai 2003 19:33 (UTC) (Lien)
So, here's what you do. You invite them both for Valerian tea.

You invite the pacifist to visit at least 10 minutes after the other one. By then, the non-pacifist will be nice and relaxed...

Re:

hm.....

that could work.....

if only valerian root was more effective.
batshua From: batshua Date: le 20 mai 2003 20:12 (UTC) (Lien)
You'll have to make the tea yourself to put enough Valerian in it…

Re:

Heh. There's a joke my mom told me a number of years ago. A man went to his doctor complaining of severe stomach problems. The doctor suggested valerian. He came back a week later, and the doctor asked him how he was doing. He said the stomach problem hadn't gone away, but now he didn't care! :)

Tea hee.

Yes, I know all about that.

In fact, I think everyone has to go through that at least once in their lives. So I think everyone knows what you're talking about...so you're not alone! ^__^

That seems to happen to me often. Person B makes me feel like a freak. ;)

I jsut found your Journal, I'm also a "torah observant Jew" but I live in Brooklyn. check out my journal, maybe we can "friend" each other? that and you have my brothers name....
gordond From: gordond Date: le 22 mai 2003 03:19 (UTC) (Lien)

Re:

by odd "coincidence" (if there is such a thing) I found yours first but then, I think, maybe my computer crashed and op! had to go to shiur, and oh! short attention span. :)

ah yes, so now I shall "friend" you and you can see all kind of juicy tidbits about my life at yeshiva. and funny yet odd dating life.
morarachel From: morarachel Date: le 22 mai 2003 09:14 (UTC) (Lien)

Re:

And I shall "friend" you alo and you can catch the "friends only" tibits of my life......and on the part of odd dateing life....we are frum jews what about our dateing lives are normal?

Re:

the part where there is another human being involved. that's pretty standard.

Re:

and how. like, yeah, dates are ever in hotel lobbies. oh, but apparently they are.

and then there's that whole "what do you mean, you didn't get engaged after the third date and you're still dating?" thing.
morarachel From: morarachel Date: le 22 mai 2003 17:33 (UTC) (Lien)

Re:

I always say if I get taken on a lobby date and I alreaddy can tell I wont like the guy I am going to order a Hinaken or a Geinis or somthing manly so to scare him off. Can you tell how much I respect the lobby date?
gordond From: gordond Date: le 22 mai 2003 17:42 (UTC) (Lien)

Re:

wow, if the person I went on a date with ordered a guiness, I would have so much respect for them. I love a good Guiness.

It's nothing compared to a good Boddington's, or a good Speckled Olde Hen, but that's okay.

Give me a date at Josh's place over a hotel lobby any time. Or J2. (i'm meat intolerant, can you tell?)
