Unhappy What Happened? I thought we were BIFFLES! - October 18th 2010, 08:17 PM

Hey everyone,
So I have this friend. I met her this year in September, so we haven't known each other long. We're very similar though, liking the same music and books, so on. We've also both had issues with self harm, so we can relate to each other and help each other out.
So her favourite colours are black, red and purple. Today I tried to proofread her assignment in blue. She glared at me and then took the pen out of my hand and started to make marks on my jeans. I told her to stop, so she did, then she threw the pen at me. I had to duck or else it would've hit me in the face. [Those are my fav jeans ]
She's never acted like this before so I thought it might've been PMS.I would talk to her about it, but she might act like it never happened or I'm over-reacting or something. I know I might be, but it really scared me and I don't know what to do.
Also, for the rest of the day I avoided her, but she talked to me, acting like nothing happened. She told me I was her BIFFLE, stands for best friends for life. She put in vowels because she wanted it to be as close to a word as possible. She's one of the very few friends I have that actually understands me and I don't want to lose her over this one thing, but it's really bugging me.
What would you do?
Ritz

I don't think she meant to hurt you. It seems like she is just going through a hard time and snapped. She lashed out at you - not to hurt YOU, but to hurt SOMEONE. You sound like a good friend. Give her some time to figure things out in her head but let her know that you are there to help her.

Hey there,

I think she was very rude to start drawing on your clothes. I think you should definitely speak to her about that and tell her that she shouldn't do things like that.

Your friendship is very new and fresh, so you need to spend the time getting to know each other and making your friendship works. But I think that's just how things go, and you need to just go with the flow and things should fall into place.

I hope things get better, take care!
