My Rich Best Friend Is Starting To Drive Me Crazy And I Don’t Know What To Do?

My rich best friend can basically get whatever she wants and NEVER has to worry about money. I on the other hand buy all of my own things. I always feel bad if we go out to eat and i have to spend $10 because I do NOT come from a very wealthy family. Like my parents have never really spoiled us growing up, we’ve always been comfortable but we’ve had some financial problems here and there. I’ve never had a best friend before, but now I do and I didn’t even know she was so damn rich until she told me. She is starting to drive me nuts due to a variety of reasons and one thing is money. I know I shouldn’t let it get to me but I am always telling her I can’t go out to dinner every evening, I can’t go to the movies twice every week, I don’t want to go shopping because I really can’t spend money. She on the other hand buys everything in sight without even thinking, she doesn’t even look at the prices. Her family has always used money to solve problems too. And the most annoying thing is that once I start liking a certain style of something, or start wearing my hair a certain way, or mention types of shoes I WISH I could afford it! She just goes out and buys it all, because she can and it’s just annoying. We will go shopping and I tell myself I can’t buy anything and then I’ll point out something and be like “oh I really like that maybe I’ll get in a couple weeks if it goes on sale” and then she just goes ahead and buys it right in front of me. Another thing that annoys me is taht she is fully aware how poor I am, but she still buys be pointless crap I don’t care about and says “Look I bought this for you, you can pay me back on monday!”. Or then I go home and realize what a crap hole I live in, and why can’t my parents be rich, and I want to live in her house, because it’s awesome. I’m just starting to get really sick of it and I wish it didn’t bother me, I know I’m just jealous and I try to go home and tell myself I’m a good person, I have a lot of love in my life and I’m thankful for everything I have, including a home and a family, and a good school and it doesn’t matter that I can’t throw a thousand bucks at clothes every season, but it’s just so frustrating spending time with a person who can. I don’t know what to do! Help please?!
P.S I’m 13, and I can’t ignore her, because we have exactly the same schedual and I have to go the same way home with her too.

    One of my friends is the same way. If I really want something, but can’t afford, she’ll just buy it and be like; “Ohh, look what I bought!” and I’m pretty sure she’s doing it to make me jealous. Same with your friend. Just talk to her and tell her it bugs you that she always buys everything you like, and ask her why she does it. Or you could just keep it to yourself that you like an item, so she won’t even think of buying it, then you could have it once it goes on sale!
    It also annoys me that my friend has all this neat stuff, but just remember your family, and the stuff you do have. Make sure to be thankful for all that, and you should be fine. Most rich kids usually don’t have a very good family, because their parents tend to just give them everything instead of spending time with their children. I don’t know if that’s the case with your friend, but it is with me.
    Just talk with your friend about it, and tell her it frustrates you that she’ll buy you things, then ask for the money without even asking about it.
    Talking usually helps, but don’t ignore her!
