I don't mean in a stalker like way, but at school if I go to see a teacher, she will always come! I'm in the sixth form, and she even came to revision sessions with me with subjects she doesn't do. If I want to go and talk to someone else in one of my classes about work, she always tags along. I'm starting to think that everyone at school thinks we live in each others pockets because whenever they see me she is always there. Obviously I don't want to lose her because we do have a laugh and she's my friend, but she never gives me space!

She also gets jealous if I socialise with others. Last summer she was sending me texts about how worried she was that I was getting a new best friend just because I was going out with other people She doesn't seem to realise that I don't just want one friend? Also if we get together as a group of friends and I start talking to one of them, she will start singing really really loudly because she wants attention and doesn't like the fact that I'm having a conversation with someone else.

Sorry for this rant, it has been bothering me for ages. I don't know what to do

Perhaps it's time you began to socialise with people in your age-group?

Attatch a rubber string to her back to a wall, when she tries to follow you she will ping back in the opposite direction.

It's easy to say 'talk to her' but not so easy to actually do it

congratulations on that now you have a best friend. Treasure her, as you will quickly find shes the most reliable one out of all ur friends. Believe me, maybe for now you get tired of her, but when you get hurt by ur other ''friends'' you will realize this point. Good for you.

socialise with these other people still and then she'll realise that you HAVE to have other friends. also...when she nexts suggests tagging along to see teachers etc just say, no, i don;t need you there thanks. or make up a reason like "it's private" or something. she may eventually realise she needs to cool it down.

I guess you just have to be assertive... like if you're going to see a teacher, tell her but then say "I'll meet you back here" and if she wants to follow, say you'd rather she didn't because you just want to speak to the teacher by yourself...? And that singing thing sounds annoying... you could just ignore her when she does that and she'll see it doesn't work. But definitely don't let her stop you from having other friends - she isn't really a good friend if she doesn't give you space when you need it.

Well it is the only way you're going to solve this problem without putting a strain on your friendship.

Also, why isn't it easy to talk to your best friend? I'd have no problem asking my best mate for a bit of space and time to myself.
