I have a "friend" on my FB who's constantly griping and moaning about having no friends or reliable friends, etc. Just today, she posted she's tired of trying to be friends, etc., and just giving up. I so wanted to post "Yeah, I feel the same way. I don't know how many times I've invited you over, and you're always "too busy" or something else comes up. Good bye." I've also let her know that I cannot come over to her place because of her pets (I have a daughter who is highly allergic, and the allergist, last time I was there, said she was too young to get the shot. I'll be taking her again soon, though, so we'll see what he says :/).
I mean, I feel the same way she does. I've been living here for 8+ years, no friends to speak of, and I thought we could be really good friends. But it just seems like she doesn't want to try to make it work.
I think I already know what most of you ladies will say, but I guess I needed to get it off my chest before I did something drastic, like completely cut her out of my life.

Well, it seems to me like you are making the effort. I would be a little offended that I keep making an effort and she keeps turning me down and then complaining about being tired of trying to be friends. Sounds to me like she is whining and needs to get off her behind and be a little better to the friend she does have.

May be it would be best if you both spend some time away from each other. In a month or so ask your self if it would be worth it to get back together as friends .
