Are you friends with anyone that most of the time you wonder why you are friends with them?

I have one friend and almost every conversation I have with her I think to myself afterward "when will she grow up?" She acts like a highschool girl....she annoys me alot yet I have been friends with her a long time and we live close to each other so it would be hard to just stop being her friend or having contact with her.

  • I had friends like that n I realized I didn't need them in my life. We talk once in a great while, but not like before.

  • Yeah I used to , then we moved a couple hours away and it took the burden of listening to her . She doesn't have internet either so no annoying emails, etc,lol.....

  • Yes, eventually you may find yourself distancing away from her. Sometimes we stay in relationships regardless of their toxicity.

  • I have one of those too. Luckily she is an hour away and can only call lol. If I were you Id just keep busy. Or at least let her think that!

  • I have a friend I went to college with (20 years ago) and whenever I see her, I wonder why we're still friends. We have NOTHING in common except hanging out with the same cafeteria crowd 20 years ago.

  • of them is my own sister, she is a bad influence on her children, my children too. Tried to destroy my marriage, never gives, always uses people, deleted me off of facebook and after all that, she pretends everything is ok. She is my sister, what am i suppose to do about it?

    another friend i used to be neighbors with,i am hard of hearing and her english isnt clear, everytime she'd call me, and i would ask her if she could say it again, she'd hang up on me, she couldnt remember doing something from yesterday to the next day, she smoked weed, let her daughter smoke it, been in jail for apparently hitting one of her kids, i dont know, yet i forgive it all and look beyond and now that i had moved a town away, i contact her maybe twice a year just to say hi.

  • Yes and no. I've been friends with her for 14 years, I've always been a great friend but there's been times that she's lied to me, betrayed my trust, she can be flakey and self absorbed. I have issues with her lack of discipline to her kids but I'm in no position to tell her she needs to change the way she raises her kids but at times that I've really needed someone she's always been there.

  • Yea she is a sweetheart but she is so immature for a 33 year old . I want to find way to tell her that she is too nice to some people and that do take advantage but then I hate to hurt her feelings.
