Ask Lucky: The Cling Factor
When I make a new friend, my BFF takes it personally. She says, “You’d rather talk to her than to me!” and stays mad for several days. What should I do?
Clinger alert! Having a clingy friend is a compliment to how great you are to hang with, but it can be frustrating. If she panics when you hang with new people, tell her it doesn’t minimize your friendship. In fact, it might make it more fun.
Include her in some plans with new friends so she won’t feel left out. If she still overreacts, distance yourself from her controlling ways—and tell her why. No one should be limited to one friend.
