Fed-up friend

Dear Queenie,

  Someone I know talks about themself all the time and never lets anyone else get in a word. If I try to say something they just keep talking, or they end the conversation and walk away.

  Queenie, how can I handle this without hurting their feelings?—Fed-up friend

Dear Friend,

  No matter what you do besides listen to them, their feelings probably will be hurt.

  This person may not even realise that they do not give anyone else a chance to talk. Ask them if they have trouble hearing you and tell them gently that you would like to have a chance to tell them something – and hope they are willing to listen to what you are saying.
