Ok. So, I've basically been spending time with one woman who lives in my town for the past couple of years. We get along marvelously, for the most part, but recently something has reared it's ugly head and fractured our once strong bond. We met in the hospital, so I guess I could/would/should have seen this coming, she's bipolar (unmedicated) & I've got major depressive disorder (also unmedicated). If that's not the recipe for disaster to strike... In any case, she is married and has three daughters of her own. She has been unfaithful to her husband once before, a few years ago, which is why she wound up in the hospital. Now, she has ALWAYS been hyper sexual in her speech, and while I typically just let it go, and not tell her to stop (I also in no way acknowledge her comments nor do I further encourage them) speaking in this way, lately she's begun to turn the attention and subject of the conversation on me! This, needless to say, I cannot take! I willnot handle this role she's looking for someone--anyone--to play, so that history can repeat itself. She's been getting worse, sending all sorts of inappropriate texts & truly making me feel as uncomfortable as I have ever been... I told her flat out: I want no-thing more from her than her friend ship; & that if this wouldn't do, we couldn't be friends again. I thought every thing was cool, but it's become very clear to me that this is not the case. She's been bombarding me with "hate-texts" pretty steadily ever since I got out of the hospital a week ago. And finally, last night, for no apparent reason, she swore to destroy the relationship for ever. I don't know if she's more upset with me because I won't sleep with her, or because I don't want to do it in the first place. I suppose there's something of a rejection there at play, but how does this make me the bad guy! Regardless, it's to be expected given the delicate nature of all the relationships I've established with close friends over the years. I keep wondering what I did to make her feel this way? The only thing I gave her was this: my time.
