What friend? As soon as I found out, that person would be out of my life. I'd be sad to find out that she wasn't the friend I thought she was, but I certainly wouldn't consider her my friend any longer. I don't care for gossips in the first place, and try to stay away from them, so the chances of a person who spreads rumors becoming my friend in the first place would be pretty darn small.

i really do not think any best friend would spread rumers about me, i think i am intelegent enough to choose the right friend. a person that spreads rumors about me in not a best friend nor a friend. i will cut any connection that i had with this person. completly erase this person. and that's it. about the rumors i really do not care cause i know that a person that knows me won't believe the rumors that is being spread or that he will come directly to me and ask me if it is true. the people that would believe those rumors are not the people i can connect with in life.

I have been in a similar situastion. I would not say she was my best friend, but we had been friends for more than 10 years when it happened. I took it very seriously. I could not understand how she would say the things she said. I hears her myself, so I know she did it. I never told her I heard it, and she never said anything about it. I did not want to have her as my friend anymore. It was a btrayal i could not forgive. This is in fact the only time I have not forgiven someone. Si i just stopped calling. when I met her I would say hi and bye, but not engage in any conversations with her. had she said something about it, asked forgiveness, explained why she did it - said something - i would have forgiven her.

this did happen to me once. I was friends with a girl from work. We spent time together outside of work just doing girly things like shopping, having tea at each others houses and going out pubs, cinema etc. She found out my boyfriend at the time was interested in someone else (I am now married to a lovely man) whilst I was on holiday with my parents. When I came back she told me he had missed me and was miserable whilst I was away. She told everyone else in work that he was seeing someone else. When I found out what she had been saying behind my back I told her I knew what she had said and that I didnt want to see or speak to her again. Life is way too short to have nasty people in your life. Tell you friend you know what they have done and that you no longer consider them a friend. You deserve better.

I don't put up with stuff like that from anyone. Life is too short. That is not a friend and would be out of my life in a heart beat. I don't need friends like that and I don't know anyone who does.

Well, when i'm with that situation. I get mad of my best friend because i trusted her and she's my best friend and never in my mind that she can do that in me. I will confront her if she's really doing something bad in my back.. I'm not that person who let my friend being ashamed infront of people so i will talk to her in private. And if things will be settle for the both of us, well, i'm willing to forgive her and start a new relationship being a friend of her..

In that case, your friend is not a best friend because what I know about best friend is the one you can keep your secret and won't betray you. I will confront her why is she doing that.

I couldn't consider that person a friend anymore. A friend doesn't do something like that. If a true friend has a problem with you or wants to talk about you they will talk to you ....not behind your back. They will be looking for a way to help you, not hurt you. A "best friend" who would spread bad rumors about you is more like a worst enemy in my opinion.
