Limited quantities of certain friends?

Asked by avengerscion (582 points ) January 9th, 2010

Do you have a friend (not simply an aquaintance, friend of a friend, co-worker, etc,) who you can only interact with in limited quantities? Does this friend do something in particular that irritates you?

I have a friend who seems to stalk me. After calling a few days in a row, she might text. Then if she catches me online, she will message me. One thing that really bugs me: I’m literally on the way to visit with her, and she calls me. Why? Why are we talking over the phone for 15 minutes when you know I’m on my way to see you? This cuts down on our actual conversation when we’re face to face. Sometimes, I just want to hang up on her!

For the first section of your question: Oh yes. I have a friend who does something irritating.

For the second part of your question: It might be wise to distance yourself a bit to in order to figure this out. Make yourself appear offline in your IM, for example.

A possible explanation: She might feel lonely, and your championship she desires more than anyone else. For what reason? I don’t know her so I can say.

Frenemies. And yes, I have them. Any friend can be annoying if they want too much (money, time, life energy, favors…).

That kind of person really needs more attention,you’ve proved that she likes you more than ever!(she might just do this to some particular person as her favorite and this make you special in her life).

@Spinel: Championship or companionship?

And Yes! I have a friend like this! We’ve been friends since high school, and sometimes I just wanted to punch her in the face back then! She annoyed the crap out of me, but it was like I couldn’t shake her loose. Now that I only see her a few times a year, I have actually started to like her a bit. Who knew?

@La_chica_gomela Companionship. Thanks. Spelling was (and most likely still is) my worse subject, but every correction helps.

I can’t handle annoying friends. If people annoy me then I don’t hang out with them. I guess that is why I only have 1 friend.
