I'm back for some of your awesome advice. I'm dealing with kind of an awkward situation lately and I'm at the point where I really don't know what to do. I'll describe the situation and perhaps you guys could tell me what you would do to deal with it. I've been friends with this person for four years. They have always been a somewhat secretive person and I was fine with that when I met them. However, lately it seems there have been more and more lies. Additionally, I've been getting a lot of "half-truths" as I call them. I do enjoy hanging out with this particular person and the group we usually go out with, but lately I feel like I've been missing something. Sort of like I've been told one thing, but the actions of this person says another. Also, I've been getting the feeling that this person is talking behind other people's backs and saying nasty things, yet they still spend time with the other person they've been talking nasty about. It gives me the feeling that they may be doing the same to me. Tuesday night this person told me a series of lies (don't lie to the daughter of a detective and expect I won't know the difference!) and it was pretty much the straw that broke the camel's back. I feel I've given this person enough chances and even though I try to distance myself while still being friendly, I still get hurt when they lie. Now I face the real dilemma. I still have to see this person fairly often in classes and through other friends. I don't want to bring anything up to this person and I really don't even care if they know I'm upset. I've tried the "let's talk this out" approach before with this person and it just causes more trouble than it solves. I would really like to be done with this person and of course my mind keeps getting in the way and tells me I will miss their friendship, that we have fun together, etc. The rational part of my brain says this person is no good for me to be around and I agree with THAT part of my brain. However, this person still contacts me and invites me to do things. I'm at a loss of how to deal with the situation. Ignoring them will make having to see "this person" in any other circumstances uncomfortable. Luckily I only have one month until this person graduates. I have met some wonderful people recently who have really shown me what true friends look like. That is mostly what has really gotten my wheels turning on this. As of right now, I am open to any and all suggestions. I'm at a loss!
