I have a "friend" who I literally did everything for this year. She found out she needed surgery, I got her a card/gift. She needed alcohol for her birthday, so as a gift I got her LCBO cards. She found out she couldn't play softball anymore, I decorated a softball with her name and gave it to her with Jennie Finch's book and a Blue Jays magazine. She has given me nothing in return. I did a lot for her and all I want in return is her time. I just want her to spend time with me because she always makes me laugh. Instead?
Instead, she would rather have me text her than talk face-to-face. She always says "you've done too much for me and I don't know how to pay you back" when honestly all I want is time to actually talk to her. I just want time to be one on one with her because we always share so many laughs and funny moments. I asked her to go for lunch with me the other day, and she said "no I will not go. you have done too much for me" and it is SO frustrating because I really just want her to come with me so that we can spend time together, I don't consider it "doing something for her" and it's frustrating that she won't see it my way.
How do I tell her I want to spend time with her? How do I tell her that in return for everything I've done I REALLY just want to spend time with her? She doesn't get it and it is extremely frustrating. How do I explain it to her? Please help!
