I know you've heard of this phrase a thousand times. I think this can really be true. Best friends do share unforgettable moments together, shared darkest secrets with each other. Why, all of a sudden, best friends turn out to be enemies? What are the common issues why best friends die down? Have you had your own experience?

My best friend (Which I also look at as my sister) have been best friends for about 5 years. We have had some fights, and not talked for a while, but no matter what we always stick together. We always use the quote "You'll always be my best friend, you know too much" She knows so much more than anyone about me, and she could have ruined my life whenever we were fighting, but she didn't. That's a true best friend. No matter how bad we fought, we always kept each others secrets. Common reasons why best friends die down is simple and stupid. One does something to make the other mad, ect.

You have a point there ivychan. Of course, when a best friend starts to betray you, then it's about time to end it.

I think a common issue is when a friend starts to choose a significant other over the friendship. It can cause an argument and be a direct end to a friendship, or it may just be that less and less time is spent with each other (and probably some hurt feelings) - a more passive end to a friendship. Either way, it's important that when a man (or woman) enters into your life and sweeps you off your feet, that you don't forget the friend that was there to catch you before he or she came along. I also agree that sometimes too much time is spent together and people just get irritated with one another. With that said, be careful who you decide to room with! People often say that if you want to continue to be friends, don't live with them! :x

I think if people are around each other a lot they begin to irritate each other. Even our best friends do things that we find bothersome. Because we are friends we overlook it. Sometimes things boil over and our best friend becomes our enemy. Hopefully this will pass and we will become friends again. This has happened to me a few times. Friends become enemies. Then down the road we become friends again.
