Today’s OPP is from Grace:


Yi! One of my friends is always late when we hang out. On top of that it feels like I’m always going to her instead of meeting at neutral location that’s convenient for both of us. She drops her son off at our house whenever something comes up, but she is usually too busy to watch my daughter. Her car broke down for a couple weeks and I gave her rides whenever she needed to go anywhere. I don’t think it’s such a big deal. She’s a single mom and is doing the best she can and I want to be there to help her. My husband says she’s not my real friend and that she’s just using me when she’s bored or needs something. I don’t think it’s entirely one-sided because I work at a makeup counter and whenever we have an event she always comes out to support. Is there a way I can truly find out if she’s my real friend or not? 


Grace needs your advice, is her friend using her?
