Ok, so, when i went out with Joe, he introduced me to 3 of his friends, and 2 after. Of the 5, i became really good friends with one (Paul) that he introduced me to after the break-up.

It's been about 6 months since Joe and i went out, and i only talk to him once in a long long while, and i see him even less frequently (and about half the times i see him i end up really hooking up with him, err, bad...). Anywho! He has gone and told Paul, that i call him all the time at like 3 in the morning and then get mad that he doesn't pick up.

I have done this since he broke up with me, once (and that was because i was locked in a room with someone on the other side who wished to cause me pain...). And he made Paul think i do it all the time.

Short and sweet, Paul likes me a lot, so, Paul got really really mad, because he thought i still had a thing for my ex, and that i had just lied to him when i told him i don't talk to him nor do i like him anymore, because Joe had told him that i still was crazy about him and call him all the time.

Anywho, Joe is making up lies to my best guy-friends about me that are making them very mad at me and making them think i lied to them, what do i do?

Paul doesn't believe me when i tell him that i didn't lie to him (This i can understand because the way that he accused me confused me and so i mixed up my words trying to tell him that i didn't lie, so, now he thinks i had a false story)

Eek, i am lost, what do i do?

Assuming Joe is the exboyfriend who abuses drugs and tries to manipulate you, then it should be clear to these people that Joe is not a nice guy who should be believed. If they believe the crap he's making up about you, then chances are that they too have a few screws loose. They are not truly your friends. Are these the same people couldn't get off their a**es to take you to your ex to pick up some stuff?

In another thread you talked about a friend whom you felt was lying to you: "i tend to make and loose friends fast, i don't know why, either they move away, or we just stop talking."

I would reexamine how you are making these friends and why you are so committed to these detrimental people. Surely there are other people who you can befriend who are also interesting and fun but less hazardous to your emotional well-being.
