I have a good girlfriend who talks about her other friends to me. Not because I am particularly special, but in conversation, if she tells a story about one of her friends, she may add a bit of judgement. Not horrible, foul-mouthed smack talk But more like a, 'let me tell you about her' or 'she's funny to me'. She does it so much, that I wonder if and what she may be saying about me. She has a frienemy whom I think she cannot stand, but whenever they are together, I feel like she caters to the girl.
My question tonight is: can you trust someone who talks about others, not to talk about you in the same manner? Is there any chance that you may be that special friend? Maybe she holds your business sacred. Or maybe she feels I am the kind of person she can be completely honest with and know I will not share the conversations with anyone else. Or, am I to assume I am being discussed in the same way? Can a good gossip ever be trusted?
