*SIGH* - June 7th 2009, 05:05 PM

So, quiet awile ago my best friend and I got into a fight and we haven't talked since. I posted on that awhile ago, but if you need details PM me or whatever. Well, a mutual friend just told me that when she asked about if we were still fighting he said "We're not fighting, we're just not talking" Now another mutual friend who moved away is visiting. She's determined that we repair the friendship because, appereantly, we fit together perfect of something. I really want to, but I don't really know how this is going to turn out. All of us will probably go see a movie and get ice cream or something, but I don't know what to expect or how he'll act, or how I should act. It's all just so frustrating and I needed to let it out.


Drop me a PM anytime, about anything!
I would love to talk to you!

Mending a broken friendship can be tough, undoubtedly. Although your visiting friend has good intentions, you need to make sure that both you and the other friend that you're in a quarrel with wants to mend the friendship as well. This kind of situation can indeed be a complicated one and it requires both parties to put in their effort or else the situation won't improve. Do you know what I mean?

Have you tried talking to your friend, the one you're not speaking to? It might be best that you two talk beforehand. If he really doesn't want to talk to you at this moment in time, perhaps you should give him additional space. All people deal with things differently and it may just so happen that he still needs space to get over what happened between the two of you. Nonetheless, I would definitely try to talk to him about it because communication is vital in this kind of situation.

Thanks for replying! I don't know if he wants to mend things or not. We haven't talked since February. I tried emailing him then, but he didn't reply. From what I've heard it sounds like he just doesn't care anymore. I can't really talk to him beforehand, because I doubt he would answer his phone or reply to an email. I think it's best to do this in person. I just don't know what to say or how to act. And I'll be honest, I'm really nervous he'll shoot me down, or not say a single word to me.

As Canuck said, mending a broken friendship is a hard thing to do, but it's important for you to think about all the good memories and experiences you've had with your friend before this fall out. I'm sure that all the positive things that have happened outweigh all the bad things? I'm sure that both of you feel the same about each other, and you're beginning to miss each others company. Whatever the fall out was about, I'm sure it's not worth ruining your friendship with each other forever?

If other people are trying to mend your friendship, they're doing it for a reason; because you had something worth mending. They obviously don't like to see you two not talking either. Try writing another email, or perhaps a letter explaining exactly how you feel and what you would like to change. Maybe now you've given it time your friend will react better to it? You both have your friends support to help you fix whatever it is that went wrong.

Good luck, and I hope you sort things out soon!

Oh, the postives definatly out weigh the negatives. It was just something stupid that got way out of hand, we both made mistakes, and then just moved on. I'm thinking that I'll see him in person, and then email him telling him how I miss him and that fighting is stupid, we should at least TRY to be friends. I definatly understand why our friends are trying to fix it, and quite frankly, I'm glad they are. I just hope that when I see him in person niether of us will lose or cool or do anything stupid that we'll regret.
