I have nothing in common with my friend watch

    • Thread Starter

    (this is somewhat long-winded )
    So since I started sixth form in September I became friends with someone who wasn't originally from my school, as they are nice I thought that we'd be good friends. As time has gone by and have gotten to know them better I have realised that we have nothing in common. They're rich, I'm poor. They are rebellious, I'm not. They aren't super academic, I'm a bit of a nerd. They get drunk a lot, I'm vehemently against binge drinking and do not drink. We share zero hobbies because their only hobby seems to be getting drunk. And we don't even have shared experiences as they didn't go to my school originally. To make things worse they are obnoxiiusly loud in lessons and complain about lessons out loud inevitably leading to teachers hearing their disdain also they are disrespectdul of their parents and it rubs me the wrong way . I honestly dont know what to do because we have nothing to talk about and they complain a lot about problems that are super petty and not really problems. And I feel like said person is actually very unhappy with their life and themself and constantly seeks validation. The friendship is a burden now but I can't seem to end it as they'll be alone and things would be awkward in lessons plus I don't really wanna deal with any drama.
    so any advice..?
