I have a childhood friend that a few years ago divorced her husband and since then hasn’t dated. She’s in her late 30’s and becoming very spinster like. Along with that she’s become highly judgmental of everyone and just about everything and not the best dinner party guest at my regular soirees. Other friends and family are beginning to hate her and so am I. How do I handle feeling good about this friendship and have a once vibrant BFF stop from becoming a lonely bitch?

I have just the cure. Get your friend laid and have an old school kind of night. Invite her over like it was one of your usual dinner parties, except when she gets there, you usher her straight to an awaiting car service, do some Patron shots, feverishly pop a bottle of champagne, plug in your iPod and put on some really good old school jams, maybe Talking Heads, Burning Down The House, follow it up with some Prince “I Wanna Be Your Lover,” and some “Holiday” from Madonna and you’ll get into the groove.

Get your friend out there!

Get your friend out there!

Venture to a trendy hot spot where you’ve already taken care of ‘getting in’ and if she spews negativity about the pretty, fabulous and privileged combat it with another drink, dancing and flirting with guys. Yeah, you may have to be that Kate Hudson like girl winking at guys and whispering in their ear that your friend is a caged animal ready to jump barbed wire.

My point is, I think your friend is loosing some of her soul. Instead of breaking her down and telling her everything she’s doing wrong, try to bring her back to life. A night out like this may be just the dusting her cobwebs are begging for. Now, if this fails and she’s still Debbie Downer right me back and I’ll roll out phase two which won’t be so nice.
