Wow - I think we may have known some of the same people, Alecia - I've also been turned off by those who constantly complain, or by the 'friends' who can only talk about themselves. Thanks for commenting here!
It's sad when you see someone change and you drift apart, isn't it, Zsoblog?
I completely understand those times when we 'drift away' from the negative or 'downer' people in our lives. If you don't take care of yourself, those people can drag you down and they are almost toxic to be around. Thanks, Sis!
I'm sorry you were tricked like that, Lisa; you don't deserve that sort of betrayal. Thanks for sharing.
Wow, that would indeed be a stunner, Jackie - I don't blame you for ending it!
People. Indeed grow apart at times - thanks for reminding us that our paths can take different directions, Darkmetaly.
I'd have told her, you don't demand anything of me, I'm not your slave, call a cab. What nerve. With friends like that who needs enemies right? It's sometimes hard to make friends, cause a lot of times you don't know what their allterior motives are.
Hi, fpherj - I think you described situations that many of us recognize. It's as difficult to sift through toxic behaviors with friends as it is when your mate behaves that way, and it takes a toll. Thanks for your insight here!
Ooooh - bad guy! I think guys who specialize in running around are really good at sneaking up on people with that idea - they make friends first, and then go in for the kill. You dodged a bullet, for sure!

Oh, that sounds like a nightmare, rlaha - and you were trying to recover from surgery at the same time that drama was going on. Good for you, to recognize these were not true friends. So sorry you went through all that.
Thanks Marcy. Yes it was a really tough time and it took a while to understand the fact that these girls were avoiding me. :(
Hi Elayne - it is indeed difficult to sustain a friendship when distance comes into play. Maybe your friend will realize that was a factor and renew your friendship. Thanks for your comments here!
Elayne, sorry your friendship ended that way. I had a childhood friend that my mother didn't want me to associate with. At the age of 22 the doctors removed a brain tumor from her and she settled down. I was so glad I stayed friends with her.
You were very strong and brave to recognize you needed to detach from those people, Emily!
