Unhappy I think my best friend hates me... :( - August 9th 2012, 10:05 PM

So lately, things were going great between me and my best friend. Today she randomly stopped replying my text messasges. She is now on skype and I messaged her there, trying to talk to her. I feel so depressed because of the way she is treating me right now, and I don't have that many friends. I'm really sorry that I sound super desperate right now, but I just want to make new friends who will actually listen to me talk. I try to talk about things my friend likes but sometimes she randomly gets mad and yeah. Pleasee help

It's hard to help because she could just not be receptive anymore or the way you're communicating isn't that great. In other words, one or both of you are at fault. If you're flooding her with text messages, then I understand why she'd be annoyed, I would be too. If the conversations are predominantly about yourself, then I understand her reaction. Such conversations become tiresome and eventually may sound like the person is whining, which may or may not be the case with you. If you're not having her engage much about herself, then it's time to start doing so. Talking about things your friend likes is nice but it's only suitable if you actually understand them and show you're genuinely interested, not just pretending to please her.


I can rip you off, and steal all your cash, suckerpunch you in the face, stand back and laugh. Leave you stranded as fast as a heart-attack.

Hey Rishy,

How long has it been since you've talked to your friend? First off, I would start by giving your friend some time. Depending on the friend, some people back off and close up when they are working through something. I had a best friend who still to this day, never told me what was wrong. All he told me was that something was going on and that was it. Then he kinda just didn't talk too much to me anymore. I shared that because I want you to know that it easily may not be you at all. Don't think that it's all you. That was a mistake I made.

So give her some space and then maybe try talking to her again. Send her a text in maybe a few days and see what happens. She could just need her space. But if all else fails and you really think you've lost the friendship, try to find other friends. So let's say for example that she doesn't respond when you text her, wait and allow her to text you next time. You don't want to come off too pushy and know that she'll text you when and if she's ready too.

I think it would be a good idea to start building a strong support system of friends and people who care and can listen to you. So branch out a bit if you can and see what happens. If you do ever need someone to talk to, know that you can always PM or VM me at any point and I'd be more than happy to talk with you. Actually, if you wanted to PM me for my email address, I'd be more than happy to share that with you and we can keep in touch. I'm on my email all the time so I'd be a little more readily available if you needed someone to talk to. Thanks for the VM a few days ago, and I hope this has been helpful to you. Hang in there, you got this.
