A little put off. A friend came to visit for the weekend. I know she can be a bit much but geez.... the first night she spent the entire evening telling me how lame I am for being single and how at my age if I don't hurry up and "hook up" with someone I'll likely be alone for the rest of my life.
The next day she bluntly asked if I was planning on sleeping with her.... I had given her my room and was camping on the couch. When I said no she asked for my reasons why not..... ummm she has a woman with whom she's had an on/off/on/off/currently on relationship for the past 10 or more years. When I explained that I know how it feels to be cheated on and am not willing to do that to another person she said that was a lame excuse for my being "afraid" of her and my "feelings for her". Honestly I have none and truth be told even less now.
She complained about having to go outside where it's hot to smoke cigs every 15 or 20 minutes. During meal times, she didn't like the resturants I chose tho she refused to say where she wanted to go or what she wanted to eat and  pointed out all the unhealthy foods in my house.We went to a show in Austin during which she got up several times to go smoke and she insisted I drop her off in front of the venue and then go find parking because she "can't" ( doesn't want to ) walk that far. After the show I told her she could walk with me to the car or she could get a cab but I'm not your driver and the car is a block or so over. She complained the entire time we walked to the car. 
This went on for 3 days... my clothes, my food choices, my car ( apparently it's ghetto and I should get a new one ) , my friends and neighbors are not good enough, my house is too small ( I live alone in a 2 bedroom ) ect...
Finally after listening to this and the constant complaints about her g/f who is also not good enough I very bluntly pointed out that I like my life just the way it is and I can see her life isn't what she wants or believes she deserves and that she is obviously not happy with the choices she's made but to stay in it and bitch all the time is is bit.... childish. 
At 5:30 am she was up and dragging her stuff thru my living room going home. She said she felt "un welcome" in my home. 
I took the smoke smelling sheets off the bed and washed them, picked up FSM only knows how many cig butts out of my yard. The can I had put on the table was not good enough I suppose. She sent me a message on FB saying she can't find one of her hair clippy things and for me to send it to her.. hmmmm OK 
Geez....  the more I'm around people the more I love my lil dogs and my cat

You're thousands of times a finer woman than this sorry excuse for a friend. If this is typical of the treatment you get from her, I think you have every right to (happily) call her a former friend.

I think that folks need to feel good about themselves, and it usually involves comparison to others - and winning that comparison.

So I'd imagine, never having met her, that her primary unrealized goal was to feel like she was better than you. Which means she has to see you as inferior. She had no problem telling you that, and when you threatened her tenuous sense of value ("I did something wrong?") she had to escape rather than face criticism.

I have a friend that does that: attacks to bolster their self-worth, and then can't handle negative feedback. Why not? Because they already feel so bad, and don't want to experience that space if they can escape.

This is spooky familiar- same kind of visit with a "friend" who did nothing but bitch at and about me the entire time, as well as complained incessantly about how I wouldn't indulge her every whim. Her problem was drugs... she was addicted to painkillers and they removed all filters from her brain and her mouth, turning her into a vicious c*nt. She even had the gall to tell me to watch my language while sitting at my own dinner table in my own house.

My solution was- and I recommend your solution could be- to cut her loose. After she went home, I avoided all contact with her. It only took her a few weeks to get the idea. Cut loose the negative, you don't need that crap in your life!
