Brag .. Brag .. Brag...

I am an impatient girl. My patience's sorely tested by this particular girl, a friend of mine from college. Although we now go to different college, we still run into each other quite often. My problem arises whenever my pals and I bump into her. My pals keep reminding me not to be rude to her. But the minute she talks, she always manages to make me sick. My face shows my disgust. I just can't look at her, let alone listen to what she says! What I don't like about her is she's so conceited! She often brags about her being the best student in class, the best dressed person, miss perfect this and miss perfect that. It's okay if what she brags about is all true. But I know her true colors; that's why I can't tolerate her. What can I do to put up with her? After all, we are friends.

So the conceited girl is your friend, I bet she and you are not that close. Good for her you haven't loose your temper and start a fight with her, you're still in control of your patience. The problem with conceited people is that they are so over confident about themselves, they're so proud of what they are. Hm,. I don't know, I'm a patient girl and I deal with conceited people naturally what I mean to be natural is that I just agree on what they think on themselves. I know is not true but it is what makes them feel good. I know later on, they will discover how true they are bragging about when they'll realize it on the experiences they'll encounter. As a friend you can always tell her nicely that she is not what she may think she may be. You can do it through a joke or serious conversation with your friends.

Thanks for your advice, but I did not want to hurt herself with making jokes that insult her.

Try to tell jokes safely don't make fun of her or insult her. If you don't feel like telling her then you have to be frank with her. As a friend you have to be true to yourself for her.

lol =D Well, brag along with her then ^_^ Make her feel that she's not the best in the world.. U need not 'praise' yourself better than her, but at least on the same level as her ^_^ IN a way, she has got nothing to be proud about since all the things she said are not the truth.. haha =D Or maybe what u can do is to ignore whatever she says, pretending that she's only making up a story.. Listening from your left ear, but exiting from the right ear immediately.. lol =D The best part will be having proof to prove that she's in lying, and that shall teach her a lesson next time.. hehe ^_^

Thanks you for your advice, senior. But I am not yet ready to be teacher to teach her lesson of life. Cause I still young and still need more experience

I would try to just ignore her if you all are truly friends. I hate it when people do that though. I have a very hard time being friends with people like her and I stay away from them because of it.
