Some time ago I met a person through the internet as we lived in the same city and had the love of similar things. Even though I’m a friendly person I found it very hard when I was busy to maintain a friendship and all of a sudden unrealistic expectations by the other person were being made. The relationship is now over but unfortunately this person has been making false comments about me to others. I find it difficult to know what to do as I think this person is mentally unwell. It hasn’t stopped me from going to places I usually go but it is always at the back of my mind as don’t wish any confrontations. I just want to live a happy and peaceful life.

  • I certainly hope that you are able to move forward with your life without this person causing to much grief. If you do see this person in public take a deep breath, hold your head high and be polite if you happen to be close enough that verbal contact might occur. It is tough when we face situations like these.


  • well try to move forward with your life and hopefully you can find great new friends


  • ah forget it. you can’t stop people from saying what they want to say but people who know you, will know the truth


  • I think it has a lot to do with what people expect and need from a friendship. It sounds like your former friend needed more from you than you did her. It doesn’t justify her response though.


  • I had a friend like this, I ignored it for a while until the stories got too upsetting and really mean. I ended up confronting the person in front of a few people and they admitted it was all lies


  • I think it can be difficult when you don’t share the same expectations of a friendship. this is a really difficult situation and I can only hope that people who know you well know she is not telling the truth.


  • I’m sorry you are going through this. I hope it improves
