Extremely odd behavior in friend
Hi there, I actually joined this website to see if anyone can help me understand the behaviors of one of my friends who I believe is mentally ill.
My other friends and I have always wanted to ask a message board because we are so confused and confused by her behavior. I use the word "friend" lightly because it is extremely difficult to be real friends with her.
She is 17 years old, obsessed with ponies and stuffed animals, screams when she talks and shouts very strange lines, yet wears suits and has a briefcase and likes to dress extremely mature.
She is very outgoing but not in a normal way. She will randomly walk up to a stranger and say "I LOVE YOU MORE THAN CANDYLAND!" And she acts like that CONSTANTLY, whether I'm alone with her or in public. If I say the sky is cute, she'll say "YOURE CUTE!" She does not know how to have a conversation. Her profile picture is a My Little Pony and she collects stickers and acts like shes 3, yet she is academically smart and a really sweet girl. However, her actions are beyond odd and she has become one of the most hated girls in my school because of her oddness...it really is not eccentricity, it seems like a social problem because there is just this disconnect with her and acting "normal." Can someone help figure her out for me? Thanks
