Dear Carol

Dear Carol, how do I tell my friend she's a drama queen?

Dear Carol, 
I have a friend who, half of the time, is super cool, funny and nice. However the other half of the time she is a complete drama queen. It gets to the point where I don’t want to be around her. I try to be understanding but it gets old fast. What do I do?

—Drama Queen

Dear Drama Queen,
Some friendships are fun and meaningful enough that it’s worth it to put up with a little drama. But if this friend expects you to be there for her 24/7 and forgets to be supportive of you, what’s the point? The next time she wants you to decode the sixth text from a boy, say, “Hey, I don’t need to be part of your every conversation,” and then simply change the subject. Hopefully, she’ll get the hint.
