Hello, I (female) would love some advice from people, because I don't know what to do. I have this friend (male), we know each other for 7/8 years now. We are now in our twenties. I must say we are both difficult people and had many arguments in the past. Nevertheless he told me that if I need something I can always speak with him and he would always be there for me. When he had a girlfriend who was jealous of me, it was the girlfriend who had to go. So far so good. I know that I am not an easy going person and because of my childhood I mistrust almost everyone and I am very egoist at some times. He is also pretty egoistigic and stiff. My problem is: Even though he says I could always speak to him about anything, I feel that he is not the right person I would like to talk to if it was about problems or past experience. He made some stupid remarks in the past, about very sensitive things. Plus it's the way he speaks to me. For example he told me " I DEMAND of a friend that he be 100% trustworthy."...how on earth can he demand anything when he himself is not trustworthy and I also have my pride. Speaking to me like this is not acceptable. On another occasion he told me that he had broken with another "friend" and said to me:" I have given her more chances then I would have given to you because she is younger..." He has been talking about " Chances" quite often and I finally replied that if he would speak like this to me once more I would draw my consequences. I told him that he can behave to other ppl like an emperor or Pasha but not to me. And here I am now. What should I do? Of course 7/8 years is something, but how can you have a friendship if one is always talking about "Chances". for me this is not a friendship. I am not going around telling my REAL friends "Ok yeah you have made a mistake, you have another 2 chances...". Plus, if I think that he is not as trustworthy as he thinks he is, and I will never speak about someting important because of that, what good is this friendship for in the end. I am not even looking forward to visit him anymore, I can barely stand spending one day with him. Evertime I have to deal with him, its like a fight for me, hearing his name alone makes me aggressive. It was better at the very beginning, but apparently he does not feel that way. He still wants to see me and talk to me, and wants to know what I am doing, but I dont want to tell him anything anymore. He does not seem to realize how serious it is. My mother said I should maintain the friendship. I know a good friend isn't something you find everyday, but would a good friend really behave like he does???
