Do you ever regret befriending someone?

I feel like a bad person saying this but I really regret befriending B. She is someone who gets stressed out very easily and annoys me with her clingy personality. I think B has a good heart, don’t get me wrong, so far she seems like a nice person. She helped me out a lot during exams and we talked on the phone very often. She also told me what’s been bothering her and I gave her advice.

But because of that B now asumes we are going to be best friends. Don’t get me wrong, I’m greatful for having met so many nice people in my university class. I just don’t see myself being best friends with someone like her. I’m not good with overly-sensitive people, especially not with ones that talk a lot. And by “a lot”, I mean 60mins long audio messages on WhatsApp. I still haven’t listened to those.

She messages me a lot and I don’t know how to react. I don’t want B to think that I’m just using her. You can’t force best-friendship, though, you know? I just think that you don’t need to be in permanent contact with people you usually see everyday and I really really enjoy silence. Sigh.

This must be one of the many struggles of an introverted person.
