  • Maybe she doesn't realize she's doing it. There's really no way to tell her nicely. Maybe next time slow her down and tell her you really need her opinion or advice and ask her to make the time to listen to you. That's a nice way to hint and not seem like you're putting her down.

  • My brother and his girlfriend are just like that, I have wasted hours of my life listening to them rant and rave about the tiniest little things. Yet when I decide to pick and choose exactly what I need help with they will hear me for like 5 minutes and just say "anyway, I'm gonna go eat or take a nap etc". I need to learn how to blow them off but I don't have the heart.
