    I had a few friends like her in the past. Once I wised up to what was happening, I politely left the friendship. In each case, I missed the friendship at first, but realized that they really didn't feel the same way as I did.

    My friends are my children. I haven't been able to cultivate girlfriend relationships because they interfere with my DH relationship. We do most everything together. I have a few acquaintances that if I need social contact, I will call and invite them to go with me, but that is pretty rare. Friendship means different things to different people. When I was selling real estate, clients who bought houses would latch on to me for a while wanting to be buddies. One in particular was always bringing me cookies and coming to hang out at our house. I finally explained to her that at some point, we might become friends but that a friend had to be willing to be there no matter what...good or bad..and I wasn't ready to commit to the time it would take to do that. WIth 6 children of our own, my "be there time" was limited. She understood and found more suitable women and we remained friendly as aquaintances.

    Hey, Terry, you've got all of us -- your cyber friends! Most of us probably will never meet in person, but we're all here for each other, & hopefully, we're not interfering with DH's relationship or family time.
