She may be jealous... who knows? I don't think you were ridiculous for insisting that he is your brother. You're not just related... you also have a relationship with him! To suggest that you aren't siblings just because you live apart from each other is ridiculous. When kids move away from their parents to go to college, find jobs, etc. they don't lose that familial connection.

I would just stop talking to your friend for a week or two, see what she does. She may come back and apologize, or she may be absolutely out of her mind and refuse to talk to you because of your disagreement.

Uh... I don't know if I understood correctly. The "brother" you're talking is your biological brother, but your friend is saying he isn't..? Where's the logic? lol You're not being ridiculous. I don't understand why your friend would say something like that, but for one, she is illogical, and two, she's completely out of her line. Your friend is strange o.o

I think that you made the right call in standing up for you and your brother.
She might be jealous, but I wouldn't know what of. He is your brother. Regardless of if he lives with you or not. You said he makes you happy as well. Don't give up someone who makes you happy, and don't feel bad for standing up to her about it. The fact that she can't realize that he means something to you is immature. You seem like a great friend, and she might want to be friends again in the future. But for her to say that she doesn't want to be your friend, is petty. You deserve better friends then that. Take care. <3

Your friend is being unreasonable and ridiculous. I'd let her be for a while but if she is your best friend, don't let the relationship be over because she has a silly view on the definition of a brother. It does sound like she is jealous because she perceives your brother pulling you away from her so she's trying to manipulate you, although if you want to still be together, just tell her that he isn't your brother to please her. If she begins doing this for other members of your family or friends, then she's obsessive over you but until then, don't lose a best friend over something so silly she's saying.

Coco, your friend has no idea what she's talking about.

He's still your brother.

It's always most likely when two kids (or more) are placed in foster care after a family member is not able to support them, they are seperated and put into different foster homes, which I hate. But, your friend is just being stupid. Just because you two don't live with each other anymore, you share the same DNA. You need to tell your friend that. My sister moved out when I was 12 and she was 21, but that did not not make her my sister anymore. We have the same mother, therefore, we're still siblings no matter how far away she was!

You need to tell your friend to stop being so ridiculous.

i say you don't listen to them if she was your friend and was so understanding then she wouldn't kick off and be ridicoulos like this i think your friend likes him as in love


I love sleep. My life has this tendency to fall apart when I'm awake.

Your friend is being absurd; to say she'll stop being friends with you for that, it's just... I dunno what to say... o.o

Ignore her. Maybe she has some kind of problem with it, but it's not your problem. If she wants to be difficult, I guess you'll have to let her. It's not worth telling her things you know aren't true. Your brother is your brother; it doesn't matter where you grew up or where you live now.
