I'm calling a truce
. I know you hate me, and honestly, I'm not so fond of you at the moment either-- but shouldn't we handle this like grown up
You can accept it or not accept it, either way, I don't care.
But for god's sakes, I'm dating
one of your good friends. Do you really expect me to say, "I'm sorry
, I can't date you/I'm sorry, I can
date you, but
we can't hang out in public
places together, because he doesn't like me"? I'm not going to do that. I have a life
too; maybe it overlaps yours a little too much, but then, maybe you'll just have to get used to that. I'll do what I can to leave you well enough alone, but I hope that you can at least be civil
to me in public. And please, stop telling all of your friends what a bad person I am; they can make their own judgements
about me, why don't you let them? If I'm really that horrible, you have nothing to lose
anyway; they'll see that for themselves and cut off contact.
So what is it? Yes or no? I'm publicly holding out the white flag
in hopes that we can save ourselves a little more drama
than is necessary. We're both adults
... can we at least act like it?
