I honestly think I'm losing my friend. - February 16th 2009, 05:01 AM

Hi guys, I hope this is the right forum to post this in because I didn't know which category it fell under mostly, because I have feelings for this girl.

But anyway, a friend of mine who I've been talking to for a few months has been different lately, she used to talk to me every single day and we'd talk on the phone for hours. At this point I became really attached to her and began developing feelings for her.

Fast forward a month and now she just hasn't been the same lately, she reassures me that everything is fine but she just never talks to me anymore, and when she does she's always really short with me. I think she picked up on the fact that I really like her, and is really creeped out by me :/

Can anyone shed any light here? I actually consider her as my best friend and I honestly don't know what to do.

Hey, i'm not really sure what the post above me is about, but anyway, just try and give your friend some time, patience makes the heart grow fonder remember:P it works the same with friends, i know its hard, seeing as you are very close to her, but maybe sit her down and tell her what you've just posted, that you feel like shes being blunt with you and its upsetting you a bit because you thought you were close.

Take care x

Lauren has said it all really!
You need to talk to her about it, otherwise things will just carry on as they are. Perhaps write her a letter, therefore she can't quickly change subjects and you can get across all of your feelings to her.

Good luck!


& it's just like she's in another world.

Hi Jordan,

From what it sounds like, this friend of yours wants to be just that- a friend. If she is creeped out by your feelings for her, then maybe you should talk to her about this. Explain that you really like being friends with her. If she doesn't want the friendship to go farther, then I think you should respect that.

It sounds like you're still friends, so I'm sure she wouldn't mind a chat about this sometime.

All the best to you,
Nat.

To be honest, as far as the talking thing has went, I have talked to her on multiple occasions and she insists nothing is different and everything is fine and dandy. And I should have found a different word to describe how she's been acting, because short doesn't seem to be the right word.

The way she's been is just.. one line responses, avoiding me essentially and all that other fun stuff. The possibility of me sitting her down is non-existent

have you tried telling her how u actually feel about her? ....i was really close friends with this guy once and one of my friends told me he liked me and i was a bit funny with him but then when he actually told me how he felt i was ok with him .....
or if not maybe just reassure her your there for her if nething is wrong and make sure she knows she can talk to you about nething x
