Drifting.. - August 29th 2009, 04:49 PM

I feel like me and my best friend are drifting apart. Her boyfriend has totally took over her she was meant to be with ME today but she has gone to see him today. Totally left me out. I am starting to get annoyed with her about that. And she doesn't seem as close to as she used to.
Like she never wants to talk to me anymore. I really don't want to lose her she is my absolute everything!!!

have you brought this up to your friends attention?

maybe you could jus tell her that you feel like she doesnt hang out with anyone,espicialy you,except her boyfriend and go from there? you dont hav to do it person,a letter/note or text or phone call would work jus as well in this case i think.

Hi Mi Sun,

I know this happens a lot when someone starts a relationship with someone else. Suddenly they start spending all of their time with their partner and they don't realize that they are drifting away from their friends. That can really be a tough position, but the best way to deal with it is to let your friend know what's happening and that you like spending time with her just as much as her boyfriend.

Your friend needs to know that when you two make plans she should go through with them. Your time with her should be valued by her, and she should make the extra effort to see you. She may not even realize you are feeling this way and that she is distancing herself.

I suggest you be honest with your friend and tell her how you feel. The only way to fix things between you is if she realizes that what she's doing is hurting your feelings. Let her know that it's okay that she spends time with her boyfriend, but you like to spend time with her too.

And as Brookie said, there are lots of ways to bring this up. Face to face is one of the best options, because it really gets across how you feel, but you could also write a letter or email.

Good luck and take care.

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?

Mi Sun,
If I were in your situation, and I have been before, I would talk to the friend about what's going on. That happened to my friend and I (except without the boyfriend issue) and I asked her and she told me she really needed a break from me because of something or other and she was pissed at me for something. A few days later, we were as close as we had been before.
If you want to talk or rant or something about it or anything else, you can PM me.
Good luck dear.
<3 Em

This is how it ends
We believe every lie & say we'll still be friends
How long will it last
Before we scratch all the scripts & rework the casts

PM me =]

Thanks for your replies, I spoke to her last night and she said she didn't want to hang out with me.
She said maybe another time.. I can't help but still feel pissed.
