So. I recently found out that one of my oldest guy friends (of 12 years) has been spreading lies about me to the rest of our common friends.

Specifically, he has told everyone that we went on several dates in college and, the kicker, that I sent him explicit pics. This is completely untrue and came out of left field.

At first I was angry, then hurt, and now I am just...over it. Your friends are supposed to treat you better than the rest of the world. I thought he was a good guy, but turns out he’s just another lying, sexist piece of shit who thinks he is entitled to a romantic narrative.

No one believes him, because they know me well enough to know I would NEVER, but I am still just feeling betrayed.

Anyone experienced this or something similar? Did you confront them or just drop them?
