MxChinca:  I think instead of calling her friend Q you should have called her friend X because that is what she would be if she pulled that stuff with me. You gave her a good reason as to why catching up wasn’t a possibility for a few weeks. She sounds way too needy and at this point in my life I need less complicated people around me as my life is complicated enough!!! You definitely have every right to feel frustrated.

I have a needy friend like that only she would expect me to be the one to call or text. She got mad when I was spending time with my family over her. We’ve since had a falling out over wedding planning. You are justified in feeling frustrated. Friends are here to enhance your life……….not be your life. A friend that isn’t respectful of your time with your family and work obligations, isn’t a true friend. True friends are where you can go months without talking and pick up where you left off when you get together again.

That’s too needy for me. I don’t have time for needy people right now in my life and sounds like you neither. You have to be honest with her.

Maybe she has something serious to talk to you about? Or need to get something off her chest and needs you for a bit of support?
