I have a friend who is separated from her husband. He kept her pretty isolated during their marriage, so although I'm not her only friend, I'm one of very few. Now that they are separated, she is always talking about all these other guys: one she's like for 10+ years, one she used to date (who was married then and is now) who's going to put money in her bank account (she doesn't work) and pay her rent when she moves out of her mother's house, her male best friend who has always wanted to get with her...and those are just the ones I can remember right now.
She's a really nice woman, but all this talk about all these guys and her verbal debates with herself about whether or not to sleep with them and all this other crap that she keeps talking about...it's driving me nuts. I really like her, but I'm not sure how much more of this I can listen to.
The thing is, her husband was emotionally abusive and I was the one who told her that I thought he was and that I thought she should leave him. So, I would kind of feel guilty to tell her I don't want to be friends with her anymore over this. And I don't really want to stop being friends with her over it; I just want to get her to stop. But I also know she's really sensitive.
I don't know how I can tell her to stop talking about all this without hurting her feelings. I'm normally really good with words and figuring out how to be nice about stuff, but I just can't come up with a way to put this that doesn't come off like I'm calling her a slut or something.
