  • My friend is a little annoying.

    I have a friend named John (fake name). We became friends in 5th grade. The next year I had to go to a different school because my family moved to a different house. Two years later, we began to start talking to each other on the phone. John told me that he became a fan of a band named The Bee Gees and he idolized Barry Gibb. The more we began to talk, the more he began to constantly talk about Barry Gibb. It became so annoying. Today, I spoke to him and he spent 39 minutes talking about Barry. 11 minutes not even talking to me and playing a Bee Gees song and the other 10 minutes actually talking to me. I get that he really likes Barry and idolizes him but its gotten so annoying. Because of this, I was going to end the call. John was playing a Bee Gees song at that time and I had to tell him about SIX times that I was gonna leave before he noticed. I want to tell him that this is really annoying but I don't want to be rude or ruin our friendship. What can I do?

    Hi there, thanks for reaching out to 2NDFLOOR. It sounds like he is really excited about his new found interest in The Bee Gees and seems eager to share his interest with you. You can try gently letting him know that during your last interaction you felt unheard without mentioning that he is being annoying. Try to focus on how you felt during the last conversation when addressing the issue. Hope this helps, we are here 24/7 via text of phone call at 888-222-2228 if you'd like to discuss this further. Thank you again for reaching out.
