Obsessed Best Friend..

Anonymous

So I have this friend.. actually, she's more like a sister. She just hooked up with this guy (you should know we're only in seventh grade..O.o) It was weird because in the beginning of the year, she's like Oh gosh, this guy is soo cute! Then by February she's like He's actually not that cute anymore.. then, when rumors start going around that this guy had a crush on her, she like He's soo cute again. 
  So, they just hooked up about a week ago, and she's absolutely overly-obsessed with this guy. You may think I sound jealous, but number 1; they're honestly one of the cutest couples ever, and number 2; we're only in seventh grade.. I'm not ready for a legit relationship.. 
  I feel that she only wants to hang out with me just so she has someone who will actually listen to her drone on and on about how amazing this guy is. She comes over to my house and spends the entire time either talking about him or texting him. My other friends and I think think that she's just being clingy. Today on the bus ride home she got in a bad mood just because she won't get to see him all break and didn't get to say bye. 

  Please help. I'm not the type to confront people, but I just don't want this to end badly. Thanks in advance!

Actually that was me one time in school I've fell so in love with this guy or you know I thought it was love but I was too young and house with my friend all I could talk about was him I couldn't get him off my mind and it wasn't that I was using her she was really my friend but I just feel like that's what friends are for to talk about stuff like that I mean I understand you get tired of hearing it constantly but I was the same way and just I guess sit there and talk to her and tell her it bothers you and if she's your true friend she'll accept it and try to stop talking about it so much

be gentle

Be gentle and tell her it's weird to hear her talk all the time about a boy - when you just wanna hang out with your BFF,

This is hard..

I am glad you reached out for help. This is a great place for support and advice.

First off all, you are only in grade 7 - I don't see the point of rushing into a relationship. Enjoy being a kid. Most relationships won't last anyways so why go through heartbreak now. You are still so young.

Second of all, you don't sound jealous to me at all. It does get very annoying when a friend gets to obsessed and won't stop speaking about their boyfriend. Like it is fine sometimes but then other people get annoyed and don't care as much as you do.

I would say to approach her gently and ask her if you can have a conversation. I would tell her that you support her relationship and are there to have her back. But tell her that you would like to be able to spend time with her like old times where you guys can discuss other stuff. Tell her that you value her friendship. It is not an easy situation. She might get upset but at the end of the day she will realize that a true friend will likely last longer than this relationship.

My Opinion.

Tell her how you feel. Honesty is always the best policy!

This is such a hard thing to deal with. Try to grin and bear it, but if it's too much for you, try to change the subject, or be honest with her, but like the others have said, be gentle! She probably doesn't realize how awful she's being!
