friend issues - November 15th 2010, 11:34 PM

so im mostly a nice person, and when somebody's upset i try to help without being annoying, but now all these people im nice too are like following me around. there is one in particular.

im a girl and he's a guy (just friends). we were friends over the summer, and we were pretty close, but he's getting on my nerves, like he knows too much about me and hes kinda clingy. he will not stop talking, and at first i liked his company since he's nice, but lately i feel like he might be a traitor, like he always tells people things that make them mad at me (often indirectly blames me for things that he does). but i cant find entire proof.

i want to be mean to him, but i know he would make my life miserable. (we sit next to eachother in a lot of classes). i dont know what to do... im trying to drift away but its not working.

You should try and be honest with him, let him know you feel he's too clingy.
I once had a friend like that that I had to be honest with. We still talk occasionally, but the clinginess is gone. If you think he's telling your other friends things about you to make them mad at you, confront him, let him know you only feel this way and that you would like for it to stop, if it's really the case.

Sometimes even when you are trying your best to be polite, he may react badly and then really try and push your friends from you... that's also happened to me. Your real friends will stay, and those are the ones that matter.

just try and directly tell him you need some space. It could be that you two just spend too much time with each other and so he is starting to get annoying. It will give you some time to figure out if you really value him as a friend or if you dont really want him in your life. Just try and be as honest as you can with him so his feelings arent hurt. Dont be mean to him but dont act like your best friends either. Hopefully things will get better with time and if not then you may want to consider being honest and telling him you dont really want to be friends anymore.
