Re: Need Friend Advice

Your friend is 40 years older than you, and in a different place in her life. I think she has a lot of things going in wrt you: you are old enough to be her daughter and she probably resents feeling motherly toward you. You are a younger woman who is able to accept opportunities, like going to France, that she must decline because of her husband's health. You had the chance to date her son, but decided that the drunkenness and bad-mouthing were deal-breakers, probably making her feel judged as a mother. It's like she's your mother-in-law!

All of these things stress your friendship.

You are wise to give her the space she asked. Move on with your own life. When she calls because she misses you, you can decide what to do then.
