Exclamation My close friend is drifting away, need some advice:) - September 12th 2012, 07:43 PM

So I'm a guy and me and this girl used to be really close, we've known eachother for about 10 years now, but she's started drifting away. I realise she'll always be closer to her girl friends than me, but we're not like we used to be. Were still friends, but probably quite low down the list, even though I'm one of the only people who has supported her through a really tough time she had, which I don't want to get into, and anyway I was just wondering if you think I should just move on and realise we're not as close anymore and just be friends with her and close friends with other people? Thanks, bye x

Hey there,

Me and one of my close friends had a point where we didn't seem as close as we used to be, so we spoke about it, and now even though we don't see each other as much as we used to we're still just as close. We've both got different friendship groups but meet regularly and when we do it's almost as though nothing has changed.

Have you spoken to your friend about how you feel? You never know, she may be feeling the same way but doesn't know how to say anything? I think if you've had a close friendship it's worth trying and putting in the effort to make it work rather than moving on right away, what do you think?
