    I had a bonfire for some close friends

    and my "best" friend invited her bf just so I can get grounded and **** so she can make out w/ her bf on my couch. This is bs. She hasn't spoken a word to me the whole time.

    and saying something when no one else would? I guess blowing up on your boyfriend's grandpa isn't exactly the best route to take but I had many many reasons to. I can only take so much.

    It is a shame when a woman is taken advantage

    of. Woman was created to enhance not be token down by a man. I really try to avoid being used. It is bad enough what could happen out of our control. It is really not good to take woman for granted.
