How do you tell someone you barely know that they're being annoying?
I'm not a mean person, but she was really getting on my nerves -- I don't like possessive friends. I should be able to socialize with as many people I want. I don't tend to spend my entire day with one friend -- I'm a social person, have lots of friends, and I definitely don't like "belonging" to someone, since she keeps trying to pull me away from whoever I talk to. It's really annoying. I understand that It's possible that she's just not good with people -- I kind of recall her saying something about how people at her old middle school didn't like her (big shocker) and I felt sorry because I know how that feels. But how am I supposed to tell her to calm down and give me some space and I've only met her twice? I'll sound like a presumptuous, uppity chick if I simply tell her to "back off" or "see more people" or that she's being too clingy. I would do it if I really knew her, or had class with her every day or something (I've been faced with similar situations) but I only see her on Sunday for Sunday school.
