Well, I just can't. I can label person annoying or irritating but that doesn't mean I can't get along with them, I don't think that's a special thing to be able to do. People aren't like food, it's not either you like 'em or you don't, it's aspects you may like and aspects of that person you may not like. I just choose to put what I don't like about a person behind me when in their presence. Don't get all high and mighty on me because I'll still be saying the same thing in a few years.

I either tell them they're annoying/ I dislike them to their faces.
Unless, it will cause annoying disputes or drama then I just try to avoid/ignore them.

I'm very guilty of this

Speaking for myself only,
I believe this is a rather immature mentality for me to have... even though I realise it, I still can't control my feelings and actions.

When I'm reflecting on my actions, I just think I shouldn't do this anymore, my friends should have the freedom to befriend whoever they like.



I experienced this sort of thing a lot during high school. And then again just last month, with my mum. I found the friends she hang around with are annoying me, and I only wanted to hang with her and me. On self-reflection, it was selfish of me to do that. I should have endured it.


But part of growing up is learning to identify my flaws. And honestly, who the ___ gives a ___ about mother's days... if I can change my selfishness, that would make her happiest, not some dumb material gifts.

Doesn't it just suck?


Personally, I think it does. It kind of ruins them to me just a little bit. Often times I end up drifting away from them. I know it's not their fault, but... I'm just odd, I guess.

What about you?

EDIT: Just felt like adding this on. I usually only have a problem when I'm friends with the other person first and have known them for a while before this annoying person comes along. Sometimes I can't help but take it personally as though they're invading my space or something. Heh.. Like I said, I'm odd. If I met someone who's already friends with or is surrounded by people I don't like, it's much easier for me to just ignore them.

I'm kinda mean and a jerk, so I'd yell, or pick on them, and if they're the type I really hate (Those who try to talk to me, and then they turn it into how I suck, and then go on about shoes and sports, and never shut up. Then they go on to touch me) I'd get some kind of other revenge. I'm just like that, I guess.

I just try to overlook it for my friend's sake but I totally understand how you feel. I think the worst is when my best friend and my ex became friends haha

I actually used to be just like that. But then I discovered that it's these things that tests the waters of friendship and allows you to differentiate "friends" from true friends. New people will have their initial appeal to the group but as soon as that mystique wears off your real friends will be right back at your side. Those are the only ones worth keeping around!

I don't own my friends, so they may associate with anyone they please without fear of my frustration for their deciding to be around someone I dislike. I've never really had this issue, but if I did I suppose I'd be open and honest about the fact that I wouldn't be good company around such a person and that my coming would be more hurtful than helpful to the gathering. If it's not something that can be passed on I would just keep things civil as best I could.

I hate it more when people who are nice associate with someone I can tell is bad, but they don't see through their ruse. An example of this is this one girl that my roommates and suitemates hang out with a lot (and still do)... I just get this bad vibe from her. And one night they went to a party and that girl came in my damn bathroom and puked her ass off because she drank too much. I'm surprised she didn't get in trouble on campus... underage and freaking security everywhere But at least I was right.

But that's other people's problems if they're friends with a person like that. Only if they start stabbing me behind their backs, then I get involved.

My friends' friends are not always my friends. Whatever. The same thing works the other way. I know that some of my friends don't get along/ are annoying to the others, but I'm still going to be friends with both, just hang out at different times.

My friends can like or associate anyone they wish to, so I usually don't pay much attention to this.

However, they should realize that I can dislike anyone I wish to, so I expect them not to make a big deal out of it as well. I maintain a healthy distance from the annoying person and try to pretend they are not significant. My friendships and relationships continue regardless of who the other person associates with. Although this has led to the person being influenced, causing them to drift away from me, things go on. It just means we weren't close enough, that's all.

When I encounter someone I dislike who happens to be a friend of a friend, I'll still maintain a minimum level of civility and will refrain from expressing hostility. Pretty much whenever someone is blatantly disrespectful toward me, I had nothing to do with that behavior 99% of the time. I can at least go to sleep at the end of the day knowing that I don't do silly things based on petty little nothings.

I tend not to mix my friend groups, though. If the relationships are fine as is, I don't see a point in taking chances and mixing the friend-groups, especially if I am aware of certain tendencies of certain friends. I won't stop them from interacting but I won't go out of my way to bring them all together.

Ugh. I'm kind of dealing with a similar situation. This dude thinks he knows everything about me. And now he's trying to get with my closest friends, and he's all proud to be friends with me and asks them questions about me, and just like me, they are having none of it. It's like I'm an obsession or something. But I don't want to hurt this person's feelings, he means well. He can't even take a hint, either, you have to be blunt with this dude.

So I'm just going to be friends with him until I graduate. Then I'll never see him again. ... Is that shallow?
