Unhappy I still want to be friends. - July 24th 2012, 12:14 PM

Well, me and my best friend have drifted apart over the last few months and I've been trying to make up for it, but am not sure how to.

I've asked her if she still considers me as a friend and she said that she does, but I still think that there's things she's not telling me and we keep drifting further apart.

I don't know what to do about it.

When I go out with her, I talk about what ever comes to me, but she still seems to be a little off and I don't know why.

I just want to be best friends with her again. I don't know what I'll do without her, I think I'd seriously loose it and be really upset and depressed.

I love her like anything, but I get the feeling that she doesn't want to be friends anymore and wants to move on and I think I'll just shut down without her.

Anyway, any advice would be appreciated.


And she turns up the music, to drown out her life.

22/12/2014 was the last date I self-harmed. The longest I have gone so far is 1 year, 2 months and 5 days. This time, I hope I can give up! New record: 1 year 6 months! Yay!!

Hi RosieJ,

The unfortunate thing about time is that it can drift people apart from each other. The thing is, she's a friend and not legally bound to you or anybody, so if you do lose touch, there's no real way to get her back. It definitely sounds like she still wants to be friends though, just maybe not on the level of closeness that you're hoping for. Have you tried talking to her about it?

Hi there,

I agree with Kat, I think you should sit down and talk with her about this. It sounds like she wants to still be friends but maybe not at the close level of best friends that you want right now. It can be really hard when a best friend no longer wants to be that close. I think right now though, your first step would be to talk to her about what's going on. Then from there you can look at your options. Keep in mind that all friendships can change and people grow apart from each other. Know that right now even though it seems that you wouldn't be able to live without your best friend, you would be able to. You really would. You may not have to look at that option for awhile, but it is a good thing to keep in mind that is something you CAN do if need be. You're strong enough. You'd need the support of other family and friends but know that it is possible to move on from friendships if the situation calls for it. You can do this though. <3 Take some time to talk with you're friend and see what's going on. Maybe she's just going through something right now. You never know. Good luck!
