I am going through a long and drawn out break up with a friend right now. My situation is not the same as yours, but I can relate that it really stinks to give up a friendship after so long. I have gone back and forth on my issue and tried to repair our friendship dozens of times, but my friend is not the type of friend I want as an adult. Its hard, but you have to put your best interests first. If she is not what you are looking for, there is no problem in distancing yourself. There is no need to to tell her or cut her off, just commit to less time with her. You will get that distance just through being less involved with her. 


Its hard to let go of someone after so long, but it sounds like you are making friends that are the kind of people you want to be friends with!

Grieve the loss of your friendship and keep meeting new people. It is sad that not all friendships can last forever. 

I have ended two long friendships in the past two years. I missed those women terribly at first but now I know I am better off. I also have a new group of friends who are much less toxic and more fun.
