I’m new in college and I met I guy with whom I’m starting something. This guy knows a lot of people here and I’m sharing building with some of his friends, and I don’t know if I’m being paranoid, but I’m afraid his friends,mostly girls talk about me behind my back, cause I’m afraid some people see me as someone who’s with him because of the people he knows. I really like him but I don’t want people think it’s something it isn’t.
There will always be good people and bad people, and some people might be rude and talk badly about you in your back BUT what matters is: are you happy now? Are you happy with him and making friends? if you are, keep doing that. You'll find the fake people among the nice ones sooner or later anyways.
So don't let your friendship sink just because some people might be rude
