@flummoxed:  Since you’re non-confrontational, just stop responding.  It works, even if it’s annoying.  She sounds awful — who demands someone watch them check in?  That’s crazy.

I’m sorry you are going through this. It’s hard to have to essentially ‘break-up’ with a friend, but sometimes that’s just life. If she usually has a rebuttal for every criticism or suggestion then confronting her with the brutal truth wouldn’t be ideal. I would just say that you can’t do it for financial reasons and I’m sure she will distance herself from YOU on her own. Seems like she’s extremely selfish and self-centered, let her other friends worry about it. Obviously she could care less how you feel. I hope it works out for the best!

I would start responding 2-3 days later, and going “Just got your message… Sorry!”

She’ll figure it out!

Just start flaking. It’s a natural progression of life to lose friends or outgrow people

Hi @flummoxed:  first and foremost, I see this is your DEBUT post on WBee… so a BIG Welcome to “the Hive”

Agree with the other Bees, as this relationship seems to be a “one way street”… maybe the easiest thing is to starting flaking on her… not be available, not replying to her calls, emails, etc.

She sounds like a bit of a pill really (too high maintenance to be a friend of mine)
