How much longer?

I am nearing the end of day 2 for my friend that is lamenting over why the latest Mr Right hasn't responded toher texts or returned her calls. It has been 2 years of this same stuff. She meets them, she falls for them and then they have nothing to do with her. This shoulder is getting weary. Now she wants to come over so the she can continue to keep asking me the question I do not have the answer to: Why is he ignoring her? I love her and I want to be there for her but I have talked to her for a total of 16 hours so far in the last 2 days. I need a break! Have you ever got tired of being somepn'e 'person'?

Maybe your friend is a smotherer, I have dealt with few of them in my day and I can tell you that being around this kind of person sucks. Don't get me wrong, I don't condone treating anyone badly or intentionally hurting anyones feelings, but sometimes you have to just cut all ties and be done with the relationship.

LOL, I know a lot of people like this. You have to stop being available. She continues to call you and and keep you on the phone for hours at a time because you answer the phone and go to her house. If she calls you, be out and at home at the same time. If she has you on the phone for to long, tell her you have to go some where. It might seem mean, but it's the only way you'll get a break.

Geez, I'm really sorry for you. I've been there, and I know how it feels. You try to make her smile, but all you can think of is "wake up, he doesn't like you that much, move on, find someone else." Some people just can't take a hint. Maybe you should try being honest with her, and tell her straight that if he was really interested in her, he would have at least answered one text message.

On top of being self--absorbed she is extremely hard-headed. I told her that he must be sleeping with someone else and that she should take the hint. All she could say to that is "What did I do wrong?" If she had any other friends I probably wouldn't mind ducking her for a bit. I did let her know that since this was day 3 she could count on me not answering my phone for her at all tomorrow.

Eeeekkkk! I kinda know what she's going through, but my man has a reason for not calling, emailing or IM'ing me these days. Same thing could be said for your friend's man. Who knows what he's going through or doing...or he's doing something else on the side. Meh...just tell her that I know of so many men that would make sure she felt loved and special...that the men she's finding are flakes. *Pleiades
