@FromA2B2013:  I’d stay out of it… you can refuse to participate (i.e. don’t hide food for her) but otherwise I’d just let her do what she’s going to do.

I have a friend a couple years older than me that still lives with her parents, very juvenille and very dependent. She tries to use me as an excuse to hang out with her boyfriend or go out drinking (she’s 27 btw…I know) and I refuse to do that because I’m not in highschool.

I’m not going to lecture her about having independent finances, moving out, or basically growing up – but I’m not going to help her act like that either. If that makes sense.

Yeah, I would stay out of it too. It is a touchy subject and unless you are actually fearing for her health, I would just let her do what she wants.

This isn’t some huge ethical dilemma (honestly, I was expecting a major eating disorder intervention-type situation.) Just stay out of it; it isn’t your business. But it does sound like she is being childish.
