2. Give Them Space

It will only make things worse if you, your friend, and her boyfriend are constantly spending time together.

It will be a constant reminder of his presence in your friendship.

Give them an appropriate amount of space so that they are out of sight and out of mind.2

This shouldn’t be used as the sole solution to the problem, but it can help ease the tension between you and your friend while you muster up the courage to fix the problem full on.

@lisa, it's literally come to the point where i search for advice on pages like this.. that's when i know it's bad.
I have 3 of my closest friends. Like out of my 5 best friends, 3 of them are obsessed. One of them never bothers speaking to me anymore, one of them i live with and still never see and she's all high and mighty about it and the other is just scarily obsessed but might listen to me. There's never an excuse for this.

I have a friend who always does this! Always! And when they break up, I'm always there. But when I need her in my life, like now, all she can think about is her boyfriend.. I'm so sick of it. What should I do?

I was talking to my friend and needed to and he called and she just walked off talking to him! I'm there for all the times of despair, but come time for me to talk, or want my things back, and bam nothing. Emotionally draining.
