@Oneeleven: I have had to get rid of a friend. She was hanging out with bad people, giving her morals up for her boyfriend (who is my ex boyfriend and the first guy I ever had sex with), Her sister and friends we’re fighting her battles for her. So I said peace out

Just dealt with this a month ago.  It sucks “breaking up” with a friend infact I’m still getting over it, but, after it’s all said and done it’s for the best.  It’s terrible when a person who you think is your best friend doesn’t seem to care, and whe you talk to them they seem to get so angry and childish about it.  Anyway, you’re not weird…totally normal.  Good for you for breaking those ties, now you can go on and not have to worry about the games.

I had to shed a friend for pretty much the same reason…she was constantly bailing on plans, or “forgetting” that we had plans. It’s sad when you make plans with someone and expect them to cancel

You did the right thing.  Maybe after she settles down and learns how to be a better friend, you might reconnect.

I broke up with a friend about 5 years ago because she was having an affair with a married man (whose wife was pregnant).  I found it so morally reprehensible that when it became her sole topic of conversation, I finally had to throw in the towel and say goodbye.

Yeah, I’ve been there.  I had a super close friend who was always kind of flaky, cancelling at the last minute, not returning calls, etc.  But it got really bad over the past year or so.  I kept trying because we had been so close before.  The last straw came when she did a no call no show at my wedding two weeks ago.  I had gotten an email from her three days before saying she was excited to come and celebrate with us…then nothing.  I got home, took her off as a facebook friend, deleted her number, and haven’t looked back.  I still haven’t gotten a phone call or email from her so she obviously doesn’t care, but whatever.

I think it’s all about putting those people behind and focusing on the positive people in your life who return the effort.

I had a friend who basically threw her academic and professional future away to marry a guy she was dating on the rebound and who needed Canadian citizenship. She turned down an incredible job opportunity that would have paid off all her debt (which was sizable) because he didn’t want to do long distance for a year, and had a quickie wedding so they could get started on his citizenship paperwork.

It killed me to see my friend giving up the career of her dreams and everything she had worked so hard for because of some guy’s selfishness. Another friend and I tried to reason with her, but she always brushed off our concerns with the accusation that we were just jealous that she was getting married and we weren’t. When it became clear that she was only willing to be friends with us if we lied and pretended to approve of her hasty and irrational decisions, we ended our friendship with her.
