  • No for what? No for borrowing money? No for wanting repayment of a loan from you? No to babysitting her kids? No for spending time together?

  • Wait. Let's start with what you have done so far, besides just saying no.
    Have you told her that asking and soliciting for things is rude? That it makes you feel uncomfortable and makes you wonder if she is really interested in friendship, or just what she can get out of it?

  • Since you already know she is not a good friend, just ignore her, she will eventually go away.

  • Don't take her calls, don't let her in your home, let her know you cannot associate with her if she cannot learn that NO means NO.

  • Avoid her. I had a friend like that, about drove me crazy. I registered for college courses, she registered for the same... then asked if we could ride together... Argh.... I just had to ignore her. She finally got the message, but still didn't go away totally until I moved.

  • I'd tell her just like I'd tell a guy....."this relationship isn't working for me so I need to move on"
