My girl friend Doesn't copy everything I wear but everything I tell her I want to do something she copies. If I tell her I want to go bowling with my dh this weekend she does it before me. I painted one accent wall in my house and rearrange the living room and she did the exact same and almost the same color. My husband and I go bike ridding and they started to copy us and even by camel back pack just like ours. We envited them over for barbecue and marshmallows over the fire pit. They invited us to their house and they bought themselves a fire pit and they got the marshmallows too. And her husband copies my husband even more and makes it so obvious I don't know if I should laugh or throw up? My husband is such a manly guy and he is into guns, knives, and hunting. And his friend never shot a gun before, so he decided to buy one just like my husband but better of course. And he started to go to the shooting range with us, and then out of nowhere he turned to a gun fanatic like my husband. I told my husband I don't trust him with a gun that I think he thinks its a toy . Well the next day he texted my husband don't tell anyone but I shot my gun in the air in my neighborhood just to see what happens. What an idiot! Well he gets into everything my husband likes, what he watches, and sometimes what he wears. And there is so many other things. And when they copy us they like to do it better... At first we didn't notice because they didn't do it full blown out there. Why are they doing this, I wonder if they notice, should we stop being friends because of this? Any advice?Answer Question

I'd look at it as a complement not a threat. Who really cares anyway? They are doing things that you like too & inviting you over to boot. They want to make you two happy. Who cares who did it first?
