She berated me because my self-restraint makes her feel bad

Dear Amy: Recently, a longtime, good friend was staying with me as a guest for five nights at an expensive resort.

She is used to consuming drinks and snacks throughout the day. I am the opposite, and closely watch what I eat and always politely decline ordering anything when she asks.

Last week she told me how impolite it is for me to never eat anything while she does because she feels she shouldn’t be eating “alone,” and it makes her not enjoy her food.

I was stunned, and yet politely assured and reminded her that I am not being rude but simply do not eat between meals (she knows this very well).

Well, she went on and on trying to get a different response from me.
