@ejay15: I have a “friend” that is almost EXACTLY like that. The world revolves around her, at all time. The stratagy I’ve used is to distance myself from her. This, unfortunately, has meant distancing myself from a few other friends as well. But, I find myself happier in general because I’m not constantly upset about something she did or said. 

If you do continue to see her, you should try to realize that’s how she is and she’s not going to change. For your own sanity, you can’t let her get to you.

I’ve found there aren’t a shortage of people to meet or good people for that matter. Once a friend made me regularly miserable and nothing would help the relationship I would dump them. Seriously. Life is hard enough without having to deal with someone who is a happiness drain who’s posing as your “friend.” For that matter, I don’t believe you should have “friends,” only friends. 

That’s just me though. I know it’s a tough situation to be in. Sorry you’re having to deal with someone like that. But I would suggest approaching her about her behavior before you dump her, if that’s what you choose to do. I had one friendship that was on the line and it turned out confronting her was all we needed to get back to a really great place. But if talking it out doesn’t help, I just distance myself from them permanently.

well, I’d avise keeping her around to meet other friends through her. but if you’ve known her for 2 years, I’d say stop calling her. you’ve probably already tapped her as a resource for meeting others, and she sounds annoying. 

stay patient– it was about the 2 year mark before my friend group suddenly seemed to explode and multiply!
