True FRiends?

I have always known that as we got older things were going to change and I understand that people get busy with their everyday life whether it be family, school, or work. But one of the hardest things to find out is that the people you believed to be one of your closest friends was not as loyal as you may have thought and turned out years later to pretty much be a fraud. I do realize that one should leave the past in the past and just work on what is in the present and the future but what if you found out that a so call good friend was actually spreading your personal life negatively behind your back to try to put you in bad and then you do not realize till years later because a mutual friend pretty much exposed her? I admit it was a difficult situation to encounter because it just felt like all that trust you had for that person just quickly dissolved in less than a second. I pretty much directed everything to her and she truly was speachless she did not know what to say to me and her response was pretty much a blank a just because. Have you ever been in a similar situation? If so how did you handle it? Thanks for reading.

Thanks for your response and in all reality friendship is based on that and if the trust is broken it is difficult to regain.

I think that person is very imature. There is no excuse for that. Yes, I'm 54. I have my own house that me and my girlfriend bought together. There is one woman that I met in college. We became very close friends but that's it. I know there's a lot of people think that men and women can't be just friends but that's not true. We saw each other several times a year. Now, the last time I saw her was in 2006. Me, her and her mom went to a concert.But we would never even think of doing that to each other. We still e-mail each other every now and then and I really am going to try to visit her. Actually, last year I was in her neighborhood about 15 minutes away. I called her but she was just leaving for a doctor appointment. So yes, our lives get busy as we grow. You have responsibilities, or you're just tired from working an eight hour day. I mean, it's not only her, there's a friend who I used to go fishin g with. I've been meaning to call him, but it just dosn't happen. But it must really hurt when someone does that to you.
