  • Don't even bother with them.

  • I don't... I only deal with people that I want in my life. Family or not if you are not adding anything to mine or my children's lives, then I don't have time.

  • Avoid them as much as possible. When not possible, I don't have any deep conversations with them, don't let them in on any problems I'm having and just try to keep contact brief and as light as I can. I've been down this road way too much to think I can get through to them.

  • Stay away from them. Only see them when u have no choice, weddings n funerals.

  • Stay away. I have some like that and I don't communicate with them or invite them to anything. For what? They only cause headaches.

  • You don't!! :) Honestly, it keep it as IMPERSONAL as possible.....don't give them anything to talk about. I have a cousin who can talk to you for 5 minutes and have 5 years of gossip. How sad and boring her life must be. Don't ever let an opinion about anything or ANYONE about the weather, the food and that's about it with this type of people.

  • My DH's family is this way. We have nothing to do with them.

  • Yeah this year ive had to just let a few relationships go. When i see them keep the convo light and if they start with gossip or drama i walk away. Im not in high school and i dont want people who act like they still are around me or my kids.

  • Stay away from them! Who needs people that talk about people.
