The Indecisive One

I fully expect that when we graduate high school, many of us friends will grow apart -- and that's OK. I have this friend, though, that bugged me, bugged me, bugged me to keep in touch and not let things change. I've tried several times, but haven't heard a peep ... except when she contacts me every few months complaining about how we're growing apart. How do I stop this? -- Lucy in Logansport

Dear Lucy,

It sounds like your friend is refusing to accept reality, which is wholly unhealthy.

It sounds like your friend is refusing to accept reality, which is wholly unhealthy.

You have accepted it, which is good -- but very annoying when she contacts you, completely unable to make up her mind (if she had, she either wouldn't call you, or would follow through on her words with some action).

Give her an ultimatum.  If she meets it, and you're still interested in the benefits she brings to your life, see where the friendship goes.

If she bails, cut her loose.
