what do i do? - October 11th 2014, 11:32 AM

my "best" friend and I have never been close in talking to each other about whats going on in our lives. and after being friends for years im starting to feel like I don't even know her... it just frustrates and angers me and I don't know what to do... ive tried talking to her but it just feels forced from my part.

what do you think? any advice or similar situations?

I know what you mean. Me and my best friend are like that as well.

We rarely see each other since we go to different universitys and stuff and when we meet we always talk about university or a series we both like to watch but close to nothing about our lives. It's so frustrating...
Sadly I have no idea what to do about it. I'm trying to work past this distance as well, but I just wanted to let you know that you are not the only one with this problem.

It's ok to give in to an urge or make a mistake. You are only human and we all have our flaws. We all have our weak moments and we all make mistakes. Thats what makes us human.
Thats what makes us unique and beautiful

Courage isn't always a loud roar. Sometimes it is a quiet whisper at the end of a day saying: Tomorrow I will try it again!

Hey there,

I can relate. I have a best friend, but I feel like we arenít close anymore. I mean, we werenít really that close to begin with. I think it was me mainly telling her what was happening in my life, and then I felt like she couldnít tell me what was going on hers. Perhaps it was me though. Even now, I donít know what she is doing half of the time, and I feel a bit left out about this.

Perhaps you could arrange to spend a day together and do something that you both enjoy doing. Then you could reminisce about the good times you had, and ask her what she is doing, how she is etc. Then you could say that you want to be able to be good friends with her, and would be interested in listening about her life, what she gets up to etc.

Sadly though, sometimes friendships just slow down and you either have to make changes to pick it up, or just accept that it wasnít what it used to be, and perhaps itís time to move on. If this is this case, try making new friends, joining clubs and doing things you enjoy doing, to keep yourself busy and socialising.

Hope I helped a bit
