The story of my life

This is roughly… equivalent… to a job interview and the company saying, You have a great resume, you have all the qualifications we are looking for, but we’re not going to hire you. We will, however, use your resume as the basis for comparison for all other applicants. But, we’re going to hire somebody who is far less qualified and is probably an alcoholic. And if he doesn’t work out, we’ll hire somebody else, but still not you. In fact, we will never hire you. But we will call you from time to time to complain about the person that we hired.

Funnily enough, I think this actually has happened to me on both the job and romantic markets.

It’s worth considering that if she’s dishing about the guy she’s involved with, he’s probably thinking “high maintenance b****.” Sure you want to be involved with somebody like that? Might be better, if somewhat difficult, to let such a person stew in her own juices.
