best friend now distant - December 13th 2011, 06:35 AM

My best friend hasn't been acting herself lately and we have grown very distant. She is also my roommate but she never invites me to do things with her anymore...she does however converse with and invite my other roommates and interact with her other friends. She never writes on my facebook anymore (she does other friends) and she used to always do that. Nothing happened to cause this but I really hate it. I feel the same distance with some of my other girlfriends as well. What should I do?

I would sit her down and tell her how you are feeling. Honesty is the best policy and it's a start!

I think that you should start taking initiative. Like I said in the other post, don't always wait for them. Post things on her wall! Text her! Say Hi first! Friends and people in general will get tired of starting things first; and in some cases will think you don't like them because you never do anything first. So start saying hi, start posting, start texting, start inviting her places; start being involved!

Best wishes,

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...
