Re: are my friends ignoring me? - July 28th 2013, 12:04 AM

It's hard saying what really is going on. I guess it could be possible that they are, and if so they're really not friends. On the other hand since you're trying to talk to them through technology maybe they're just legit not getting your messages. I know sometimes text messages won't go through unless you sit there and try a few times in a row and I've had messenger on MANY occasions not deliver messages either to me or to whoever I'm talking too. As far as calling, again if its a cell it could be connection problems or maybe they're just busy and then forget (i've been known to get voice mails etc and forget to get back to them at my earliest convenience after lol) If there's any way to talk to them in person to find out what's going on then that would take any sort of technology issue out of the question and you can find out once and for all what's going on. I wish you the best and hope you can get this worked out!

No offense, just a question but why are you typing like that? It seems like adding random capitals and lower cases through out a word would take unnecessary effort o your part, and could be a little annoying to read for your friends if they're always having to read messages like that. I'm not saying it's a factor at all, but the means in which you choose to communicate makes a huge difference and if your doing it in a way that bothers people but is only found in your typed messages, you could consider typing in full easy to read sentences (words in all one case, proper grammar etc.)

Any how, if that's a non issue for you and your friends and I'm really just a grammar nazi, it's really hard to say if there is a deeper issue then that. i mean, even if it bothers them they might of been willing to overlook minor irritations up until the bigger thing happened to piss them off, like maybe you've been acting a little differently lately, or maybe you got them into trouble a few weeks ago and they're still mad. There's a whole whack of things that might of happened. You're best bet would be to go straight to the source, be like "hey, Sally, I feel like we haven't been talking as much lately and that maybe I'm being shut out a bit, I'm not really sure what's going on because I can't think of the incident that might of upset you, Jane and Becky, so I thought I'd ask and see if everything is ok and if not, what I can do to fix it' and go from there

Welcome to TeenHelp!

Around the age of your teen years, you will have all sorts of feelings/events take place. Some includes losing friends, gaining friends, disconnecting from friends, drama, stress, miscommunication, and a whole bunch of other things. The one thing that can help prevent alot of these problems is: communication. Sometimes we have a habit to assume things. I'm guessing for the most part you are assuming that your friends are ignoring you, and it may or may not be true. We aren't mind readers, so we really can't tell you if they are or aren't ignoring you. However, the only people can answer that is your friends. So my best advice is this: Communicate with your friends about how you feel. Ask them if they are ignoring you. Ask them if there is anything going on you should know about. If they mention that they are ignoring you, ask why. If they still continue to ignore you, than give them alittle space. Sometimes we all need a break from things.

Remember, Communication is key.


Best wishes,
Chris

To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...
