Question I got rid of him..... - April 23rd 2009, 04:31 PM

Okay, so a little while ago I hung out with an old friend of mine. It was really weird and awkward and I told him that. I told him I dont want to be friends anymore. He told me a while ago that he cuts, and recently that he's bi. I didn't stop being his friend because of either of those reasons, but because we don't have anything in common anymore. Should I have stopped being his friend? Is it possible that I got rid of him because of the cutting or being bisexual?


Love you-- Kayla c:

You're supposed to accept your friends as they are. If you only had friends that you agreed with you'd probably have a very narrow selection of friends. Let's say that I was only friends with Christian people, how would that look?


Geek? Nerd? More like intellectual badass.

usually, when you don't want to hang out with somone anymore, the best thing to do is to slowly just stop seeing them as much. still be nice and stuff, just don't really engourage them. there is no need to tell them you don't want to be friends anymore, like you're breaking up or something...
good luck, and pm me anytime.



PM me any time, ok? I'm always here to help.

weeeellll.... i didnt exactly just come out and say it, but i kind of beat around the bush first. i said "remember last time we hung out? wellll that was kind of weird and awkward for me."
and he said "yeah me too"
and then i didnt say anything for a little while and he said "wait are you saying you dont want to be friends anymore?"
and i said "would you be upset if i said yes?"
and he said "no"
so now were not really friends anymore

Hi Kayla,

From what it sounds like, I'm pretty sure you just don't have anything in common with your friend anymore. That happens all the time, so don't worry about it. People move on and people grow apart. I don't think you took his self harm or sexuality into consideration when breaking the friendship at all. It actually sounds like it went relatively well between you two.

It might be a good idea to just message him every now and again to make sure he's moved on okay and there are no hard feelings. But he sounds like he's cool with it at the moment.

Nat.

The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?
