well i have this story... i have a best friend in high school and we are very close to one another. until one day i fell in love with this girl, which is one of our classmate. she is charming and i know that she's single. that girl is one of my best friend's buddy in one of our school organization. I courted the girl without knowing that my bestfriend also courted her. after we found out that we are in to one girl, we have this feud that last untli we graduated in high school. we never see each other for about 8 years now (but we have our friendster account connected) until i saw him in a job fair, i know that he saw me but instead of giving our hi/s and hello/s, he snubbed me. and i snubbed him too, like i never see him in front of one another. after that i felt guilty because i am the one who become the girl's boyfriend (unfortunately we fell apart). if ever i give my apology to him if we see, will he finally forgive me? because i have this heavy load in my heart that i can't release until we ask forgiveness to one another... waht do you think? sorry for the long story.. i hope you understand...

good day... For the sake of your friendship you can try but be prepared for any eventuality. In the first place why would you ask for forgiveness? when in the first place you didn't know that he is also courting the same girl. it isn't like you stole her from him, did you? I don't think you need to apologize when there is nothing to apologize for.

i didnt stole her... i win over him and that's it he get mad at me... but i know i have my sin... if he told me that he love her i will let go, that is me... i still care for my best bud because once he done something that is unforgettable and i owe him for that... so that's why i felt guilty because i didnt repay for what he did...

After 8 years, if you still consider him as your best friend, you will still speak with him easily. No one get closer with the girl now. so you have no problem with him, even if you are still with the girl. A truly friendmate won't consider this as big problem, so why don't you try to spek with him as a best friend like before?

Sure he will forgive you. And if he don't, the burden will be pass to him. So try to contact him. It's been 8 years. if you value your friendship... make the first move.

Sometimes forgiveness from somebody doesn't come easy, however it doesn't hurt to try to ask. What's the worst that could happen? I know it will feel better to be forgiven but be prepared for what might happen. Sometimes people can move on and some people have a harder time getting past things. Life will go on and things will turn out alright. It has been eight years you say. Time sometimes has a way of healing things.
