Having Propblem with freinds - October 16th 2014, 04:58 AM

Hello recently I have been having trouble with my freid I am on highschool a junior I have one really good freind who I hangout with A lot I talked to other people but don't hangout with them after school I like to hangout with my freind Dan but recently I am starting to think there's a Propblem I have recently wanted to start puttin myself out there to get to meet and befriend more people at my school so I've
Wanted to go to some footbal games but Dan he just says oh that's stupid I won't go with you and I don't want to go alone so we just go back to his house and watch tv which is very boring then I said the homecoming dance is next week I haven't ever gone to a school dance ever and I think it would be fun to go maybe we can hangout with some new people hopefully girls but again he says yeah right I'll never go to that why would you want to that's stupid so I propably won't go because again I don't want to go alone then recently he's been hanging out with people that dislike me because of some things that happened in middle school and he knows I don't like them at all and he tells me yeah all they do is make fun of you and he doesnt stand up for me so he justeta them
Talk bad about me I really don't know what to do I want to be freinds with him
Because if I stop hanging out with him I'll have to try to make new freinds which is hard since I'm already a junior

Hey there,

Is there a reason why your friend doesn’t seem interested in doing social things? He may just not be interested in football, or the dance, but maybe he is naturally an introvert and might prefer small groups of people and sticking to people he knows rather than making new friends?

That said, it’s not fair on you if you don’t do something, just because he doesn’t want to. There is nothing wrong with going to the dance on your own- in fact, it would give you more freedom to mix with others and make new friends.

Sometimes, friends go different directions and things can change. If you want to stay friends with him, you could talk to him and say that you feel you are drifting away from each other and would still like to be his friend. However, sometimes it may be best to move on, especially if he hangs out with other people and doesn’t stand up for you.

Making new friends may take time, so I understand that you wouldn’t want to lose your friend. But if he isn’t treating you right, and you don’t feel happy in the friendship, I think you should try to make other friends. Do you have any interests or hobbies? Perhaps you could join clubs and groups- this is a great way of doing something you enjoy and meeting new people. I definitely recommend going to the dance, since that is also a good way of socialising!
