I was just curious to see if I am the only one. It is rare that I meet someone I don't get along with, I'm easy-going, pretty social, and have quite a few friends. They are all great, but I have one friend who the others don't really care for...AT ALL. I usually see her on an individual basis, just so I don't have to worry about any drama (which I detest). She is a great person, but my other friends just don't like her. She opinionated (not overly), which can be a good thing(in moderation). She's not obnoxious or anything like that, but my other friends just can't stand her. Has anyone else ever had this problem?

I don't, but one of my good friends has a friend I can't stand. I usually like everyone, and I have tried to like this woman, but I just cannot seem to, so I just try to stay polite and respectful. I don't see why my friend likes this woman and speaks so highly of her. I guess sometimes there is just bad chemistry. No one is to blame. I don't know if that is helpful at all. Hopefully your other friends love you enough to be able to be respectful around the one they don't like.

Yes, they are good if she is around - they are courteous and respectful, just not overly-friendly as they are with each other. It doesn't happen often that we are all together, and I keep it that way so no one is uncomfortable. I really wasn't looking for help, though, just some insight and to see if anyone else has ever had this problem. Thanks for your answer!

Well, I have friends who talk about the others but act nice in front of them. I don't dig that so I have steered away from them a lot. I like those true blue friends who appreciate people foir their differences and are really there for you when you need them. I have found in the past few years they are few and far between.

Good friends (the true blue kind, as you say) are hard to find. Every one of mine would stand up for me as I would them, which is what makes this situation so difficult. They all know that I am friends with this other girl, and really don't say anything mean about her (at least when I am there), really just that they 'aren't that fond of her' and 'wished I wouldn't hang out with her'. If they were bad friends, I wouldn't have such a rough go at this, lol. Thanks for your answer!

i've going through stuff like that in hs...they just have to deal with....if they really want to maintain their friendship then they'll be able to deal with it. just don't have them around eachother.
