Even my dh is raising an eyebrow & he does not normally notice anything! My friend has 3 dc & her dh works away from home alot. Here goes some examples Can you take my dd to school/pick her up, can you babysit, can you charged my phone, can you give me some coffee, can you get me this from the suppermarket then when she has got it she sometimes tells me she does not have money on her so will get it to me once she gets to the bank, can you give me a lift & 9/10 when she calls she wants something .There have also been a few times when we have arranged to meet & she does not turn up because she forgot. Sometimes she can be a bit offish with me & I do not know why, quite often her suggestions of doing this or that never come off but then all of a sudden she can be really nice (without wanting anything). I end up feeling quite confused to what is going on. What do you think?
I have said no to her before & it felt great! You are right Worraliberty I just wanted to see if I might be right in my thinking of this situation or if I was reading in to things to much.Sometimes you need to hear the views of people who are not directly involed in the situation to confirm things! Time for me to do something about it.
shtiv friendship is not one sided, and this person is just taking the pee, it sounds as though she is using the op, and is not really interested about being her friend. Not much of a friendship if you ask me.
I would help anyone out in need so I am slighty bemused at shtiv response as I have done loads to help my friend out & I agree that friends should be there for each other but I do not feel that I get this from my friend. I think my problem is I only want to see the best in people and sometimes that can be at my expense I am now feeling quite positive about sorting this out thanks to your advice !
