if you don't want to be friends? So one of my friends, this girl I know, just got back from spring break. I've known her a few months, and we're pretty close friends, as in we hang out a lot, but that's mainly only b/c I was interested in dating her for awhile, so I was basically getting to know her better before I asked her out (which I have not done yet). Well, I found out from another friend that she recently just started dating someone (which, upon asking her about it, she confirmed). After finding this out I realized that now I feel like I don't really want to be close friends with her anymore, b/c as I've gotten to know her better I've found out she has a lot of annoying habits (she is VERY narcissistic, for example, and I don't like most of her friends, either). The problem is, she still calls me/IMs me to ask me to hang out. I know she is my friend but the fact is, now that she has a boyfriend, I am not really interested in hanging out with her anymore. So my question is, how do I take down the level of this friendship (I wouldn't mind still being acquaintances with her, just not good friends) without appearing bitter? Any suggestions? Anyone else ever find themselves in this situation?
