I'm friends with two women: Linda and Jane. Linda is very outgoing and can be a bit abrasive, while Jane is very reserved and introverted. Linda manages to drive Jane up the wall, so Jane avoids spending time with her except in large group settings. Fortunately Jane realizes that this is her problem, not anybody else's, so she doesn't badmouth Linda and simply declines invitations that involve her in small groups. Unfortunately, Linda thinks that the three of us are the three musketeers. For more than year, she's invited Jane and I out a couple times a month: lunch, coffee, happy hour, dinner at her place. Jane always says no politely, Linda pouts.
Now Linda has the "great" idea that she'll organize an activity, say happy hour, and then I invite Jane but don't tell her it's really Linda inviting her through me. Should I:
A) Tell her that if she wants to invite Jane she should do it herself.
B) Say that I really prefer one on one activities.
C) Explain that Jane doesn't enjoy hanging out with her.
D) Some other brilliant solution that I know E-Hell has.
