He went on to explain how he felt like since I’d been around social dynamics had changed… that people like me, but they don’t like him anymore.
I felt bad. I told him that I didn’t think that was true.
I told him I thought he’s a nice guy.
It’s weeks later and I have finally come to my senses. It’s time I stop feeling sorry for him.

But that had nothing to do with me.
Now, after acting on his peer-rejection based jealousy towards me people really don’t like him.
I thought he was a nice guy. Oh well, I was wrong.
