Is there any way to win at this game N play? My N will tell me an entire, complex story. For example, he might say that he is in love with someone else. He has all kinds of details. And then when I will act appropriately upset, have an "episode", he will then say it was a "joke". That anyone else could tell it was a joke except me. And then refuse to talk about it. All the while, I have had all these emotions. He does that quiet often, sometimes I wonder if I'm going crazy. I wonder if I am that inept at understanding conversation.
How can I deal with this man until I can get him out of my life, how can I deal with conversing with him until I can end this madness?
