UPDATE: My [23M] friend [20F] invites/begs me to accompany her on unnecessary shopping trips then asks me to pay for gas.

Original/Exposition

As stated before, her actions are relatively recent. She hasn't been a bad friend since I met her. She's one of those "SuperWhoLock" theatre push-over tumblr gals (her words, not mine). So this took me by surprise.

I decided to sit her down in a public place and speak with her about the issue. I told her that I don't have a lot of money and I won't flip the bill on trips she invites me too.

Of course, she got angry. She stated that I shouldn't use her and I was a bad friend.

I ended up giggling in reply, as I do this when I'm nervous. This infuriated her.

She went on a long winded monologue about how she knows my type and how since she's from Long Island I think she has money. Blah blah blah.

When she finally stopped, I informed her that that was not the case. I explained that I don't care about her parent's money, but our friendship. After further discussion, she started to tear up.

Turns out that though Mommy and Daddy bought her the car AND was providing her with gas money (an allowance, per se), she was saving up for something she wanted. This something was a five thousand dollar trip to have her online boyfriend fly up this summer and to put him in a ritzy hotel. Her parents didn't approve of her relationship, so they would not fund it.

Apparently, she has been hustling people out of their money in order to fund the trip, while continuing her luxury lifestyle.

I believe she expected me to feel some sort of sympathy for her. She was teary eyed and sniffling about true love and how she is doing this to meet the one. But I couldn't take it.

I ended up explaining to her that she cannot use people as human ATMs. And that even though she is a nice girl, I don't appreciate her doing ugly things.

She babbled on about how I wouldn't understand because love or some shit.

I sighed and ended my friendship with her on the spot. I've spent a lot of time with this girl and collected several good memories, but someone who refuses to see their own wrong doings is not for me.

TL;DR: Confront friend about using me. She denies it, saying I'm using her. She reveals why she was using me (and others). I end the friendship when she refuses to see the error of her ways.

EDIT: Wouldn't really classify her as a "Tumblrina". She likes tumblr culture, but she isn't as radical/insane as the ones I've seen online.

EDIT 2: Still very much Gay.
