How do you deal with people who talk too much about the same thing?

I have a friend who always talks about the same thing: her ex.

She breaks up with him regularly, sleeps with him again only to become disappointed by his lack of commitment, and so the cycle begins again.

Which is up to her but she talks about him incessantly. It’s tiring because giving advice is pointless and whilst I feel for her quite frankly having to spend the evening talking about this guy is dull.

WIBU to tell her to change the record (and if so how on earth can I do this nicely?) or shall I just suck it up?

YANBU! You have to set boundaries with these people.
