I don’t want to be friends

So there’s this girl at school. She was new to our school this year. (I’m a freshman). She just switched from another school in the district. When I first met her I thought she seemed nice. I didn’t have a lot of friends going into the year and was glad to introduce myself. I invited her to sit with me at lunch. I always try to get her to talk to my group of friends that I eat with (I’ve since gained a multitude of amazing friends that I share lots of interests with and get along great with!) but she always just sits next to me and doesn’t say anything to anyone but me. And a lot of the time I’ll be talking with the group and she will pull my attention away from the conversation to talk to her about topics I’m not super comfortable with. She’s really nice but she talks about guy drama all the time and she’s thinking about getting a tattoo. I personally think that tattoos are disgusting and don’t want her to get one. Her life is kind of a mess because she was a bit of an oopsie child if you know what I mean. Anyways I’m realizing that we don’t have that much in common and I think she would be happier with other friends, but she always tells me that I’m her only friend and it freaks me out a bit. I’ve tried introducing her to tons of other people but she just sticks to me like a shadow, even though we have nothing in common and the things she talks about tend to make me feel uncomfortable. She asks for advice on things I know nothing about having never had a boyfriend and havin

    You need to be cold about it. It’s highschool. You can’t have people clinging to you. It will bother your real friends. Cut her off dry. I’m a senior in highschool and the one thing I regret is being too nice and having people cling to me and having my good friends leave because I constantly had a shadow following close behind me
