You just have to decide what this friendship is worth in the long run. I had a friend like this once. She was a very loyal friend and had all the best intentions. However, she had a very passive aggressive personality and it made being friends with her very stressful. In the end I decided it was too much work trying to maintain some level of balance to keep her aggressive behaviors at bay and had to let her go. It was a sad choice but in the end it was the best for both of us. So, back to the first statement I made was that you have to figure out it's worth to you. If you choose to be friends with this person be prepared for a lot of stress that will inevitably come with it.
(Sorry, I deleted my initial response because I read over it and realized it didn't really make any sense. This statement was what I was trying to get at.)
