    My friends recently started sleeping round a little bit more and is constantly boasting about it. She'll message me when shes slept with someone or goes on constantly about sleeping with someone then a few mins later she'll moan about being single or never going to get anyone when she gets more male attention than anyone else I know. She knows as well that I've never had a boyfriend, never had a date, have a rubbish self esteem, never get hit on by guys and still goes on and on about it. So its been annoying me recently and upset me a bit.

    She sounds strange to be honest, is it worth having her as a friend?

    I think you're being a bit... bitter or jealous or something else and I think that's an atural response, but at the same time you don't need that person to be all in your face.

    Just put yourself out there if it bothers you that much. Plus, texting you when she hooks up with someone lol, that's really weird.

    I think one thing ive learned in life is that others are, unfortunately, a bit self-absorbed and dont really realise how other people feel.

    my dad was in a horrific accident, was taken to hospital, nearly died, then had surgery and was house bound for about a year to recover. i gave my friend a lift to uni and she knew all about my dads situation, but never once asked me 'how is your dad doing?' or 'how are you feeling about your dad, are you okay?'. instead, everyday when I drove her all the way to uni and home again, she would feel sorry for herself saying stuff like "im so ugly, im so fat, im going to fail uni, im not going to make any friends at uni" etc. I would support her, try to cheer her up, etc. i tried to be a good friend, despite the fact that i was under a huge about of stress and responsibility. she was so oblivious to anyone else around her's problems and how they felt.

    so yeah, maybe your friend doesnt realise what youre going through or how youre feeling. you could try calmly discussing how you feel with them, thats the only thing i can suggest other than trying to distance yourself.
