He's your friend, and you don't know why.

So I have this friend who I hang out with and speak to regularly. For starters, he's dumb as a post. I'm not just saying that to be mean. I seriously think he might be borderline retarded. He's rude and obnoxious, but not because he's a jerk. He's just socially inept and has no idea that there are lines that you don't cross.

He's completely unreliable, never keeping the promises he makes. After which he attempts to make up for it by buying me off with some small amount of money like showing up with a pizza right after I get done eating lunch.

Just now we were playing a game in co-op on xbox live. During the whole hour that we played, he was singing, grunting, making machine gun sound effects and getting overly excited every time he got a kill. And considering we were playing a game where 50 enemies jump out at you at once, it was quite often.

After this head ache inducing experience which was supposed to be fun, I found myself wondering "why am I even your friend?" I'm not trying to be a jerk here. But isn't a friend supposed to be someone you enjoy being around? Do you any of you have friends with no redeeming qualities who do nothing but annoy you?



Made it bold so that people can stop reporting this thread as a personal thread.

I'm friends with people who are just plain bitches, I don't even know why. It;s hard to get rid of them

I don't have any friends, only acquaintances. I can relate to this topic though, I don't share many interests with either and a number of them have a questionable mentality. I still wonder to this day why I converse with them, excluding the issue of thinking that it's mean to up and leave because you don't share any interests at all. =T

I like all of my friends I mean sometimes they can get annoying but at the end of the day I'm glad they're there.

Maybe you're his friend because you feel sorry for him...

BECAUSE they are my friends, I will lie to them, be late and flaky, let them borrow money from me and forget about it, eat their food, make them worry, nag them when I feel like it, let them drink my alcohol, etc.

Things always seem to turn out okay in the end.

just be honest with him if you don't want to stay with him anymore. tell him that you didn't like him or whatsoever. I used to have a friend that's just dumb like patrick star [you know, in spongebob squarepants xD], she's my total opposite, we insult each other, we hate each other and yet, we still love each other [as friends]. I guess there are just different types of friends and still like them despite those imperfections. yeah, she done nothing but annoy me, but I guess I still had fun with her :3

now that I migrated.... so as of right now, I don't consider anyone as my friend yet :/ I have people who I talk to everyday, go with during lunch but still, I don't consider them friends just yet xD which is kinda sad, forever alone. haha x)

That's nicely said and all but the guy feels his friend has no redeeming qualities. You seem to have a pretty balanced relationship with your friends and are content with that. He's not content with his friendship.

@swordstyle

You can either be honest with him or just distance yourself from him until he gets the picture. You say he's not a jerk so I'd try to maybe talk to him first.

I could never stand to be friends with someone that annoyed the FUCK outta me. How are you friends with someone you don't even LIKE?

When people REALLY start to annoy me I dump them or drift away. Seriously I was friends with this girl once and she thought she could lecture me about my grades like she was my mother, I got so fucking annoyed I stopped being her friend. And this other one who couldn't stop being a two-faced bitch, I was getting a constant headache from her bitching, lying, disloyal ass so I was like fuck you I want to hang out with someone fun.

Course this was all in high school.

Yes. ._. MOST of my girl friends, but not as much as this girl. Lets say her name is Kirsten. EVERY TIME I'm with her, and every time she see's an attractive woman, she always disses her. "Ew, she looks like a whore!" "Oh my God. Cover up your non-existent chest." "She's too skinny." "..Bitch." "Whore." "Slut!" Skank."

All the time. I exploded on her one time. I said, "YOU'RE JUST JEALOUS BECAUSE SHE'S PRETTIER THAN YOU. NOW STFU. I'M TRYING TO ENJOY OUR TIME TOGETHER. PLEASE."

I literally said that. I felt bad, and then she began to get pissed at me. "Yeah, those girls are prettier than you too!" I don't give a fuck. I admire pretty girls, not get jealous over them. There's ALWAYS going to be someone more attractive than you are. But, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I wish I told her that part instead of exploding.

... We're still friends. And she's still a jealous bitch. ._. Why?

Are you sure there isn't any redeeming qualities to your friend? I'm pretty sure all kinds of people do. Maybe, you should sit down and talk to him about what you are feeling. But since you're a guy, I don't think that would help at all. How about drop hints about what you are feeling? Set them gradually and sooner or later he will stop those habits of his.

For example, next time he grunts or something while playing you can just say "Dude, that's pretty distracting." or something of the sort.
