@Hbomb84: I’d break up with her, absolutely (in my opinion). I’ve learned the hard way that I have no time for negative people or their drama in my life. I have my own crap to worry about (sorry, that’s harsh). I care about my friends, offer advice, and help out as much as I can. But if they don’t listen to others’ advice, and screw things up… That’s their problem.

I wouldn’t get dragged into it. Next thing you know you’ll be getting a call from a lawyer or something asking to be some sort of witness, lol. Try not to get involved.

Oh I definitely have a few. Basically now I am just entertained my their stories because I am no longer an active “friend” so to speak, but we still talk everyonce in a while. And I’m not tied up in the drama anymore.

It does sound like your friend has some issues though, maybe you can take a step back when she moves back to her hometown.

Friendship is a two way street. If you’re consistently giving more than you’re getting, walk girl! You’ll feel so much better.

Yikes…. I agree with some of the other comments – time to end that friendship!

I dont tend to be friends with ‘drama’ people. Life has enough ups and downs in it without people who seek them out!

@Hbomb84: Goodness gracious! That wasn’t even the level of drama I expected when I read the title! I’ve had dramatic friends, but not like that!

I think you need to just confront her and basically tell her what you said – you can’t handle the drama, you’ve tried being honest with her and she just wants to do it herself and you don’t want any part of it and until she can mature and grow up, you don’t have time for that relationship.

She’ll probably be super mad, but you gotta do what you gotta do. That kind of drama is never worth it.
