Dear Anonymous -

I'm stuck. You recently told me you felt like you had no friends because everybody has someone they'd rather be with, and as a mistake, I agreed, because I didn't know what else to say. If I had disagreed, what category would I have been put in? It was a mistake to say I agreed, because now you've latched yourself on to me, and I don't know how to shake you off. Do I even want to shake you off, because would that be equivalent to abandoning you when you feel like you have nobody?

I'm going to be honest - you annoy the **** out of some people. You probably suspect this, seeing as you asked my other friend if anyone's been talking behind your back about you. I realize you think it's important to always remain yourself, but that doesn't mean you can just throw yourself out there and get mad or offended when people don't accept you. To put it bluntly, you're exhausting to be with, because you're judgmental, easily offended, and you shove your opinions down people's throats. Like I said, I know it's important to not care about what people say, but it's also important to understand that you have to pull in the reigns on yourself sometimes.

So yeah, okay, we can be friends, but I'm not going to spend every waking minute with you. I'm not going to come over to your house every Saturday then sleep over that night because I don't think you understand that we're complete opposites. I like my space. I like being alone, and no, not your definition of "alone" where you text people asking what they're up to in hopes of being included, but actually, being by myself where I can do what I like without being judged. I'm not going to respond to your texts within a couple of minutes because sometimes I'm actually busy, and surely you know by now that I don't carry my phone around with me? And if you have to force me to do things with you, do you really think that's a friendship?
