Slacker and Steve - OPP: Best Friend Being Used 4/26

April 26, 2016

Today's OPP is from Hope:

 

Yi Slacker & Steve,

I have a friend that is in love with a guy that is always using her. She is convinced that they'll end up together someday but he's already said that he wouldn't date her because "they're too good of friends." He knows she's in love with him and uses it to get her do things for him. Everyone can see it but her. He'll call her when he's drunk at 3am on a work night and she'll get out of bed to go give him a ride. She'll go over and cook him meals and clean his apartment. She's paid for stuff when he's broke and can't afford it. I've tried telling her that he using her and she says she likes being there for him. How to I get her to wise up and stand up for herself? I know other people have been through this. What did it take to make her realize that he's never going to get with her?

How does Hope get her friend to stand up for herself and stop letting this guy use her?

She is in love with him and he has no intention of ever getting with her, but she will get out of bed to give him a ride home from the bar, cooks for him, and pays for things he can't afford. How does Hope get her friend to stand up for herself and stop letting this guy use her?
