Wow, really, nobody thinks it was wrong for Lucy to invade Mike's privacy? Regardless of intentions she was in the wrong by doing that. Not to mention Lucy told a big ol' lie pretty much, because when she talked about how Mike seemed down he pretty much told her he was only annoyed/bothered/etc around her, so he actually doesn't have any issues.
Though I think yes, he is overreacting some, you have to look at it from his viewpoint-Lucy was someone he was abused by for YEARS and he was finally able to confront her and seemingly get her out of his life, and now she has come right back around like the typical parasite he views her as-she just won't stay out of his life. Would that not bug the shit out of you? ESPECIALLY when it comes to having to deal with it with your girlfriend, who you are finally seeing after so many years? Even with good intentions it's still meddling which is the last that Mike probably wants from Lucy. NOT saying Mike is in the right completely here.
Also, I highly doubt Sandy would dump him over something like this specifically? In any case, guess what, she is probably going to take Mike's side-this is her long-term boyfriend, and probably once she realizes(if she does) that this is the same Lucy from before I don't think she will see any wrong in what Mike did, especially if she is going to hear it from his point of view.
How nice to see a person that is not a hardcore fanboy FOR ONCE.
Yes, good intentions
don't always lead to good results
. No matter how friendly you are with other persons, you don't invade their privacy like that... Well to be fair Lucy wasn't in her best mental state and right now she views herself has the source of all pain for her friends. I don't try to defend Lucy here, what she did was wrong
. But we can't ask from a teenager filled with negative emotions to think straigh, can we?
Regarding Mike I think that he overreacts to... like everything? I mean dude you got abused by a "over emotional girl" when your friends around you have more serious problems.
Whit this I don't say that Mike didn't have his share of suffering; suffering is the same for all of us, sometimes stronger, sometimes weaker. It always takes all of our attention
. The thing is, that for a group of friends is rare to see someone like Mike who is not giving much fucks about his friends lives... I don't mean that he must invade their privacy or play the superhero. Yet he has been growing apart from the group slowy...
When he say to Lucy that no one need her and that no one is going to be by her side, while that might be true (If she keeps with that behavior) it also sounds like he was saying it to hymself.
