I think my LTR’s sister faints for attention; not sure how to handle this

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?

It’s none of your business. Best way to handle it is to largely ignore - let her BF and your LTR fawn over her if they want, you should remain distant and uninterested.

Do not suggest to your LTR (or anyone) that you’re dubious about the authenticity of her feinting - you’re not going to achieve anything and will only cause trouble for yourself.

Accept that some girls pull shit like this - it should be an irrelevance to you.

I want to second NEVER FUCKING accusing her of faking it. You have nothing to gain, and will make yourself look like a 101% douche bag. Calling her out on this will bring nothing but shit for you.

Agree with all that was said above. One other thing to add. If your gut is telling you she's faking it for attention, I'd avoid any situation where you are alone with her. She could make up a lie about you, and then best case scenario, it's he said she said and your LTR doesn't trust you. Worst case scenario she says you molested her and the police get involved.

I know better not to do that. Just would hate it to be a habit and annoy me to the point of avoidance entirely. Trying to figure out how I can tactfully contain the situation if my suspicions indeed turn out to be true.

Advise that she get medical attention from somebody qualified to diagnose her.

Already recommended she see a physician.

A threesome with her sister would work. She would stop begging for attention then.

Just say “looks like she needs some air, I’m gonna hang back” and ignore the situation.

You can have fun with it too. Tell them “oh no if I see someone faint it makes me feel like I’m going to faint too” and dip out of there. Leave all that drama behind

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
