A reader needs some suggestions on how to handle a “friend” who he has known for a while. This person is fine with him when they are alone, but when girls are around, he seems to make jokes at his expense to ingratiate himself with the girls. What are some good ways to handle this situation?
I offer some suggestions, as well as discuss a few passages from Dr. Aaron James’s excellent book Assholes: A Theory.
(Don’t let the title fool you…this is a serious work on personal relations, setting boundaries, and deviant personalities).
