Just read a reply to my earlier message about my friend who won't share from "imotherothers."

I think you do need to say something now or else your friendship will become very strained. In the previous thread you said that you know that she did not forget her invitation to take you next time so it is reasonable to ask her why she is not following through on her promise.

I'm sorry your friend isn't being a very good friend.

Dear sillysadie, thanks for your reply! Believe me, after not being invited on this trip, I certainly don't want to help her pick out clothes to wear on it! I was floored when she suggested this shopping expedition! I think you and elc11 are correct about her. She is unbelievably self-absorbed!

Dear elc11, you are correct on all counts! I have already known this person for quite a while, and the traits have already become very irritating! She has many good characteristics, but I've started to feel that the bad characteristics are outweighing the good.

This just made me choke on a gulp of water.

Tell her that you couldn't be more disinterested in following her around to pick out clothing for her.

You're friend is self absorbed. You should tell her you're not interested in shopping with her and tell her why. She may not like what you have to say (no surprise to me), but you should tell her.
