Ok well my friend talks about him all the time still, I knew she wouldn't get tired of it. Still now she has been making out with him in front of me and my friends and we are getting tired of it because you know it's not very respectful to us and we just might end up leaving her and going to hang out with other people at lunch because we are tired of it. Also it is really obvious that now she thinks that she is all that which is beginning to get on my nerves. My friends they have had boyfriend, but you know it's all cool because we all friends and will not make out right in front of us. Still I don't know why one of my friends just like to rub it in our faces so messed up. What would you do if your friend shows off her boyfriend and makes out right in front of you when trying to have a conversation????

I don't know how to respond to this. Because maybe, you're insecure that you don't have a boyfriend while your friend's having a liplocking session with his boyfriend. But putting that insecurity issues aside, I think that it's not proper for them having those things. I mean c'mon, it just doesn't look good especially when you're having some peaceful conversations. I think you should just tell them that if they want to make out they should do it somewhere else.

Ok...honestly I love the "sour grapes" comeback. You don't like your friend's behavior because you don't have a boyfriend? I've dating someone while this happened to me and believe me it is still annoying!!! And I am single currently and it is still happening. You should confront your friend (PS I've tried that multiple times and it didn't work), if that fails try to avoid situtions and conversations where this behavior happens. If it is perfectly fine for her to behave that way, it is perfectly fine for you not to agree with it. Eventually, she will realize that she has taken you for granted. Then you can discuss the fact that her behavior had an impact on your friendship. And just a little something for you to keep in the back of your mind, you were there before him, and you will probably be there after him maybe that's something you should remind your girlfriend. :) Good Luck!

Oh that is just not nice, you need to talk to your friend in this case. Don't let her continue doing it to you and your other friends its very disrespectful. Just tell her that you understand and respect she got a boyfriend but there;s always room and right place for making out. time for friends will be time for friends and time for you bf is your alone time as well, she should learned to respect you guys and respect herself as a woman.

Hi Anime... It's really fine with me if my friends make out in front of me as long as were not engaged in a conversation or they were just being sweet with each other. In your case it has been getting in not just yours but also your friends. The best thing you could do about it is tell your friend what's the problem and not to get irritated with her more and to avoid further confrontations. Good luck!

Hi anime123, The best thing to do is talk to your friend about it. Tell her you are not comfortable with them making out in front of you. Such things could be done in private. Don't just leave her without giving her notice. I know how annoying it is to have a friend talk about her boyfriend all the time. I had this experience, a friend of mine monopolizes the conversation by talking nonstop about her boyfriend. We try to divert the attention and didn't comment on her stories so she will not be encouraged. I think she got the message. If still she didn't listen to you and continue to make out and let you feel uncomfortable, and that's the time you leave her.

If they are really irritating me then I'd probably make farting noises or talk about disgusting stuff. If that still doesn't deter them, i'd probably just start a discussion on an embarrassing moment that certain friend had. Let's see how hot they'd be able to get with that kind of scenario. If all else fails, just start taking a video with your phone or something then keep it as something you might have fun with for future reference.
