Dear Carolyn:

I have a "friend" that will email and invite me to lunch and then add, "By the way I'm cycling for charity, please contribute," and then she never follows through regarding the lunch. Once, we actually made a date for lunch and then she said, "I'll call you that morning and let you know if it still works for me!" and I never heard from her the day we had scheduled the lunch. I asked her and her fiance to join my husband and me for dinner and she said, "Great idea! I'll get back to you when things aren't so hectic," and 10 months went by without a word.

Although there was a time when this person and I were close and spent time together, obviously this is no longer a friendship, and I have decided not to accept this behavior from her again.

There is a strong possibility that I am going to run into her around town. What can I kindly say to let her know that I'm done with her without being snarky?

-- K.

Why do you need to tell her anything? The friendship is over, there are no plans being made that you need to break, and if she ever invites you to something, then you already know she doesn't mean it so it doesn't matter whether you reply yes, no, maybe, or not at all.

The only thing left to do is to exist in this reality instead of the alternative one where you thought you might someday, eventually, have lunch.

If the opportunity arises naturally for you to say something, or if it's important to you to tie off the ends, then by all means, say what has been on your mind:

it's important to youのところはit's important for youと学校で習った気がするのですが、なぜその形なのでしょうか?あと、tie off the endsの意味も教えてください。よろしくお願いします

1。it's important to youのところはit's important for youと学校で習った気がするのですが、なぜその形なのでしょうか?

 for は「~の利益になる」場合です。これは「あなたのためには全然ならない」場合だからでしょう。

2。あと、tie off the endsの意味も教えてください。

 「終わりを(布の切れ端などがほつれないように)結ぶ」 > 後で問題が起こらないように処理する > ケリをつける

ANo.1

"important to" は何か価値を与えることについて"important for" は必要なこと、もしくは助けになることについて使います。

例えば
"It is important for you to get well"  
良くなること(病気が治る)ことは健康にとって重要(価値がある)

"It is important to your family that you get well"
健康であることは家族にとって重要(必要)

tie off the ends:端をほどく=つながりを解く(関係を解消する)
