So my LTR and her sis are very close. Their mom died last year of cancer (slow degeneration). Her sis has a LTR of ~2 years, and he’s super cool. We hang out with them once every 2 weeks on avg.
I’ve noticed her sister is the dramatic, manipulative and attention seeking type. Oddly, she does not, at surface, appear to be low self esteem. She’s fine to hang with, but she exhibits very peculiar behavior every now and then. For example, we were at a music festival a couple of weeks ago, and she fainted, causing us to go to the medical tent. The medical professionals quickly determined she was fine. My gut feeling at that time was that she was faking it for attention. Certainly, regardless of inclination, we all treated it as a serious issue and showered her in attention making sure she was okay.
Then, last night. I bought us 4 tickets to see Joker with a +1 friend of theirs. My gf and I arrive and walk in. As were in line about to get popcorn, I get a call from her sis’ bf saying she fainted again. So we immediately ejected from line to tend to her in the parking lot. Mind you, the film is about to start, and we’ve been waiting forever to see it.
We go over to her, and she seems fine. But her bf is super worried. My gf is a bit too. I asked her how long it was since she last ate (she’s like 90lbs, apparently not anorexic). She says it was about 12 hrs ago. We encourage her to eat more. Me and her bf agreed that is most likely the issue. Anyway, we end up seeing the last half off the movie.
Now, I feel kinda stuck here. On one hand, I have a lot of pull since my gf loves me, her sis’ bf and I are pretty tight, and her sis likes me also. I am an equal share leader of the group, and the dynamics are awesome outside of her attention seeking behavior.
I feel stuck though, and I’m wondering ...what are y’all’s thoughts on getting this type of behavior to end before it becomes a habit and too late?
