I have unsuccessfully been trying to break up with a friend for about a year now. Normally I am very upfront about these things, but I feel terrible about trying to cut her off because she does not have many friends and she always tells me that I am one of her best friends.
Her birthday is coming up, and I would really prefer not to go to her party at all. She is so picky and stuck up. She whines about everything and makes a scene. Over all it is just an embarrassment to be around her in public because of said scene.
I am just going to go for a little while and try to stay civil. I told her that I would have to leave early because it is also my boyfriends birthday and he is having a little shindig as well.
Why is breaking up with a friend so much harder than breaking up with some one you are dating?
I think that it is because I know that if I completely cut her off, she will take some of our mutual friends with her and some of these people, I actually like and hang out with often.
Diplomacy has never, and will never be my strong point.
