  • When the friendship has run it's course. Fortunately I haven't had to deal with that situation much.
  • If really there not your friend..... If they wont do for you as you would for them.
  • go where?
  • If a friend decides to leave, I will let them go. If a friend betrays me, I will no longer be friends with him/her. I don't think any other reason would cause me to dump a person as my friend.
  • i just let a family member go cuz she is selling crack to ppl and having kids stay at her house.. oh yeah and she is a mud shark whose boyfriend owes me money
  • It depends. If they turn their back on me and backstab me then it is time to say Bye Bye because that is not a true friend
  • if they want to go
  • When they decide to befriend me, or when they decide to leave me. Either way, I am used to friends coming and going.
  • I let a friend go when I'm putting more into the friendship than they are. If they're not willing to make the same effort for me that I make for them...I don't consider them a very good friend.
  • When I weight out the goods and bads and the bads weight much more.
  • If they betray/backstab me, lie to me, and/or treats me or any other of my friends like crap. unfortunately, this has happened to me more than once.
  • I had to let a lot of people go lately...friends and family...i feel once you have been stabbed in the back beyond what you can believe it's time to say good bye even though it hurts sooo much!! there is a time where you have to think of you and your family before others!...great question!!!
  • Personally I wouldn't let them go...they would go themselves as in what they have done or not done to me or someone else I care about! I just wish that I could help you more Zack.
  • when they did things that wernt so friendly. Or when they became nasty
  • Ill hold onto a friend to the end, but what is to be is to be. If he stabs me in the back, that might end it also.
  • When they are only around for their convenience. They only remember you when they are going through a really difficult time. They don't remember you just to say hi, how are you?
  • When they die. But I will still remember them always. A living friend may go if they wish. I can't do much about that, either. But I will still try to remember them when we were friends. I have never been really "betrayed" by a friend, so that's the best I can do.
  • Well, if that friend betrayed me or doesn't want me or she is my friend because she wants her benefit.
  • Betrayal or telling lies about me...no excuse, no second chance. Such a person was never a friend to begin with, so I was simply naive and duped..it happens! :(
  • I think lying is the main issue for me. I can handle a lot of circumstances and actions from my friends, but when they start spinning tales or telling lies, that's pretty much the end of the road for me. That basically tells me they don't value the friendship and it's OK to lie to a good friend. There's always exceptions though, so I don't hold strictly to this rule.
  • Betrayal will cause me to let a friend go. I can handle lying, coz at some point or another for good reasons or bad.. we've all done it whether we care to admit it or not. Even the most honest among us will at times tell what we tend to call "a white lie". Anger is never a reason for me to let a friend go, neither is frustration. These things will cause me to back off maybe.. to save myself some stress.. but friends fight and get angry and frustrated with each other, we are all different after all. But of all the things a person can do to hurt another, Betrayal, back stabbing, talking negative behind one's back while smiling in that persons face... all break a persons trust. And in my book, trust is critical to a friendship. Even on a surface level like with online friends, one should not have to feel like a friend will talk bad about them or give away secrets or personal info to others just for the sake of conversation. I need trust from those I call friend and if you break it... we're done.
  • I would let my friend go if they lie all the time, steal from me or try to sleep with my man.
  • When either one or both of us no longer feel the relationship is functioning at a level that we are happy with :)
  • To find out that a friend has spread lies about me would be horrible but to sleep with my boyfriend or steal from me would be the kicker... id give them the boot in a heartbeat!
  • If that's what they wanted or they betrayed me. Sometimes you just have to know when to say when.
  • I had a very close friend, but she fell out with one of my other friends and started getting her into loads of trouble - calling her racist, saying she hit her, bullied her and insulted her. None of it is true. The friend that she accused is the sweetest, most selfless person you could ever meet, and she hasn't stopped cying since this happened - it's totally messed her up that one of her best friends has done this to her. Seeing her in this state has certainly ended the frienship for me, I'm not sure if anyone in my group will be able to forgive her.
  • If she slept with my partner couldnt forgive a friend if they done that. Not that i have a partner right now,but if i did then that friend would be history
  • I can take alot of punishment from a friend. I can get mad at them at times, and not speak to them for awhile, but I always wind up getting back up with them. Just because I am mad at you, it doesn't mean I am no longer friends.
  • if that friend slept with my boyfriend....then the bitch would have to go......friends just don't do that..
  • I just recently did this myself. We had been friends for about 6 years. We lived together for a little. I was in love with him but decided to let those feelings go because it just was not working for me anymore, the situation that is. I started seeing my ex again and I got pregnant, so I had to move back home, Kept in contact with him for a little bite but anyone who has kids knows how hard it is to keep in contact with friends when you just dont have the time. My daughter is 5 know and I thought it was ok to start really hanging out with him again. We had talked on the phone alot but had not seen each other in a while. Well turns out those old feelings never went away, and he told me that he didn't want to rush it and that whatever happens,happens. Ok so then we kinda stopped talking again because i wasn't going to play the crazy girl roll come to find out that he had been seeing someone and went on his my space page to find out he had a girlfriend. I was hurt but put some distance between us. About a week ago we were talking on the phone and on line and he wanted to talk dirty, well you have a girlfriend granted it might be talk, but I know that these are things he would like to do with me. I decided to end it out of respect for the new girlfriend, that and i kinda felt like i was being led on. So that is my basis, out of respect for someone else in a situation that could have been avoided had he kept his mouth shut. Yes, I do still love him very much. It was the hardest thing I have ever done, because he was my best friend.
  • If it was for better opportunities like my best friend is moving to cali for college since he got accepted to his program. I met him in the college im at now and we have grown so close to the point I feel like I'm losing a part of me. It hurts, but I'm rooting for him all the way and my biggest fear is that we will lose touch because life gets in the way and keeps you busy. I love that kid! :-)
  • Iv recently lost alot my group of friends from skewl nd 1 girl hu hangs round with them but wasnt at my skewl.. they betrayed me... they bak stabbd me, they wer horrible nd accused me of many things.. nd 1 of the girls was txin my bf [we had split up bout 2days cuz wed had a row] sending him pics of herself[rude pics] i mean how is that a friend:S u dnt do that! [shes got a history of doin that tho=(] they tried 2 turn my very best friend agenst me which 4 me was the very last thing i cud put up with cuz my best friend means more 2 me than anything. so all the above r reasons i wud let friends go.
  • If a friend needs to go, they have every right to. If I feel they are making a terrible mistake, I'll make my plea and then let them choose.
  • Never. My friend let me go recently.. I stay out of contact with her, but hope in time she'll come around. I am convinced. I am thinking of contacting her in six months to a year- we were fighting alot, fighting and anger, thats all. She imposed an impossible condition on me to continue the friendship, I can't do it. Would if I could. I'd give the world for her, and now she's gone.
  • I will get rid of friend who takes advantages and who is only nice to get favors.
  • A lie and/or money. They norrmally go hand in hand.
  • when i slowly lose touch, grow apart, and there's nothing left to talk about.
  • I take oral hygiene very seriously. If a friend is constantly smelling and not taking care of their body and oral odor, then I am done with his or her friendship; particularly after I remind him or her to keep themselves clean.
  • Sometimes people outgrow each-other. Just because you've been friends with someone for a long time doesn't mean you can't grow apart. Even though it's still a touch situation, some friendships just aren't worth salvaging. And when you get to the point where a friendship is causing you more grief and anger than comfort and happiness, it's time to let them go.
  • I don't think I could let a friend go.
  • if they try un off with ur partner of 3 yrs then let them be like mine did
  • When their niceness wears off and all you see is them being judgemental, self righteous, racist, and immoral. These are definite deal breakers for me. And when someone shows you who they really are you should believe them.
  • if they told me they was gay
