Would you take it? Every time i'm with friends, someone says something and then someone turns it into an insult directed at me, it never really came to mind until this afternoon when some acquaintances told me "Wow they're really dicks to you"

usually the people that constantly turn everything into an insult toward you aren't what I'd call "friends".

yeah, my gf did it to me all the time. Some people just feel the need to make others insecure to mask their own insecurities. I just brush it off.

I just kind of get used to it; I never say anything back, so most people get bored, or realize that I'm not a dick, and just stop. There's the occasional person that just thinks it's funny to keep going, but I usually just kind of ignore them until they go away.

You should condition your friends' behavior by punching them in the throat every time they do it.

OT: Naw.
EDIT: Aw fuck. Your poll is tricky. Yes I would stand up, no I wouldn't take it. Accidentally voted no.

There's good-natured humor and there's taking it too far. You be the judge and act accordingly. It could be they don't know they're crossing the line, could be they're just dicks. Let them know it's gone too far, and if they'r eyour pals they'll back off. If it keeps going, they're probably just dicks

i used to deal with all sorts of abuse from people i thought were my friends, until i realised that they werent real friends.

being a socially awkward, shy person didnt help, but i did manage to find a new set of friends, who dont turn everything round as an insult aimed at me.

sure, in every group theres going to be some banter, but when its straightforward victimisation of an easy target ( i mean no offense by that, TS), then it really shouldnt be tolerated, IMO.

I don't react though, that's what gets to me. Every time i've asked people about it they say to ignore it but they don't understand how persistant my friends are

You seem to be using that word very lightly... maybe you should try looking up the definition.


They don't sound like friends.

It used to be me, too. Now, I'm 20 and I have a thicker skin because of it.

I'm not going to pretend to know your friends, but i'm actually going to give a serious go at giving you some useful advice. My friends group is pretty similar and i'm ashamed to say, i'm not usually the victim.

Don't make yourself the victim. There are some people in a group that never get shit because they simply wont take it. You don't want to be that guy because he's usually a massive nob-head. This is the man who takes the piss and usually the one who nobody really gets on with.

The other people who get the fair amount of shit and give out there fair amount. These ones are the best. Usually good fun.

Don't think you're being a dick by sending it back. I guarantee it's not just you that's the victim. when you're not around it's someone else.

Start singling out one of them, and slowly turn the group on that one person. Eventually they will pick on that person instead of you and everyone will be happy.
#23
you have to have bounderies, somethings you stand up to and some things you let go the most important thing is to not do anything stupid or somthing that gets you in trouble.

Example:
4" midget standing up to a 6"6 giant

The one i hate the worst is when teachers victimize students
When Teachers unfairly victimize students is when you definately have to stand up

And everyone saying that's not real friendship is wrong. I absolutely hate my best friend and we get on just fine.

He hid under my bed in the middle of the night and dragged me under after a night of dead space..


That everyone annoying and taking the piss out of everyone is good stuff.

years of abuse have led me to a position in life where I stand up for myself regardless of the consequences.

Once I thought I'd killed a friend of mine - we were staying in a hostel and stayed up telling ghost stories and he was the first to fall asleep, so one of us went under his bed and started moving the matress from underneath, and I put a blanket over my head and shone a torch in my face and made a scary face. He woke up with this look of pure terror on his face and didn't say anything or move, just sat there looking at me for a bit. I thought he was gonna have a heart attack.

Then the next morning he couldn't remember a thing

Immediately throw down, man. I had a "friend" like that. All it takes is one ass beating. Worked for me.

#36
It used to happen to me but my friends randomly stopped doing it and we're cool now, it can be really annoying. AND now that I'm done highschool things are even better.
#37
The solution is clear TS.

You must kill them.


Kill them all.

I think in any group of friends (well, any male group of friends anyway) its customary to take the piss out of anyone/everyone else in the group as much as you can.

Or am I just part of some kind of dysfunctional social circle?
