Is this an example of trying to downput someone? Does it mean low self-esteem?

Asked by rexpresso (920 points ) September 15th, 2010

A friend is very popular in a certain nightclub, has been for ages, and hasn’t been there for about five months.

Now her best friend who is light-years behind her in terms of mind health (I’m more than sure) went out as usual and when reporting the night said that “nobody is asking about you anymore”.

The best friend is prone to jealousy and throwing tantrums.

Without me saying more, what do you feel about this?

I think the friend is being a bitch and jealous!

That was unnecessary to say, on her part. It doesn’t mean she has low self-esteem, simply based on that but tantrums and jealousy point to immaturity.

Your fiend should ignore the “best friend” and I use the term loosely.

Best friend? I think a statement like that (unless it was said with sadness or regret) proves she’s not a friend at all.

How was it said? Could it have a badly worded plea to come back and join them all?

jca's avatar

i think you mean “put down” instead of “downput.”

Thanks @jca
Yeah @JilltheTooth it’s very likely that in this case I may have misinterpreted
@downtide they love each other ehe… but the friend has really wicked mood flips
@marinelife nah.. they just can’t live together
@Simone_De_Beauvoir yep agree, thanks
@Thesexier yeah man I don’t know for sure

Thanks everyone!

My feelings are that it’s not worth asking about. Surely there are more important things going on than what some airhead does or does not think about another one.

When you say light years behind her in mental health, could she just be expressing to the best of her ability the situation without any malice intended. People with social disabilities do not always come across as the most tactful.

She’s very sweet and a good girl. But she has issues. Anyway, thanks for your feedback guys.
