I’m sure you’ve had a friend or two who was just kind of annoying. They were always asking you questions, or maybe they would just talk constantly about themselves and how great they are. This can be frustrating, but it doesn’t have to ruin your relationship with them! In fact, there are ways that you can deal with these people so that they don’t bother you anymore:

Don’t say anything!

If you don’t like your friend, don’t talk to them.

It’s not worth it. Don’t tell them why you don’t like them or share the story with other people who might be interested in hearing it. If a friend has done something wrong, it’s their own fault for doing so and should be dealt with quietly and privately by both parties involved.

Assess the friendship and decide how important it is to you.

You may have noticed that some of your friends are just not that into you. They aren’t the type of people who will come over to your house and cook dinner with you, go out with you on a weekend night, or even text back when they say hi.

In this case, it’s important to step back and evaluate whether or not this friendship is worth keeping. If the answer is no (and sometimes it might be yes), then consider ending things with them because there’s no point in trying to make nice when someone doesn’t want anything from you!

Tell them how you feel, but don’t be rude.

  • Be honest
  • Don’t be rude
  • Don’t be passive-aggressive (unless you’re talking about someone else’s behavior)
  • Don’t be a drama queen or martyr, even if they are annoying you more than anyone else in the world

Be assertive, not aggressive.

When it comes to social situations, there are two kinds of people: those who are good at saying “no” and those who aren’t.

The first group is easy. They know how to say no without it being awkward or making anyone feel bad about themselves. They’ve learned how to be assertive in their relationships and they’re able to set boundaries without having negative feelings about the person they’re talking with.

The second group isn’t so good at this whole assertiveness thing because they’ve been trained not to be assertive by parents, friends, or society in general (which means we can blame our parents for everything).

The problem with this group is that they don’t realize how annoying people will find them if they continue behaving like this—it’s probably time for some self-awareness training!

Be honest – but not brutal.

In the end, it’s important to recognize that friends will be friends for a reason and this isn’t the end of the world. You don’t have to like them or want to be around them all the time, but it doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to enjoy their company when they’re there.

If someone is being annoying to you and making your life harder than it needs to be, then maybe it’s time for some tough love: “I don’t think we should hang out anymore.”

This can help cut through any emotional attachment that may exist between two people who don’t really like each other too much (or at all).

If someone is trying hard enough to make sure everyone knows how much fun they had last night at a barbeque…maybe this person really wants us out of their lives!


In the end, you should be able to determine whether your friend is worth being around. If not, then it’s time to move on and find a new friend.
