Have you ever ended a friendship with a closer than close friend? Was it over a stupid thing? A while ago kinda split from my best friend of 10 years [I'm 17], because I felt she started to get ignorant of my feelings, and didn't share lots of things with me. I felt like I was doing all the work of keeping in contact with her, so I just stopped. We didn't talk for 10 months, and she recently called out of the blue and left me a message..I've been to nervous to call her back.

friendship can be tested by time, trials and there are people who are good to you only when you are hjelpful to them.When you can not be useful, they just dump you.That is a fasct of life.It can happen even in good marriage

when you say best- it is the utmost and the supreme.you dont have to add est at the end.Like if you say most, you dont add the est to make it appear as being on top of things.It is already understood.

Call her. I stopped talking to my best friend for 2 years because she was to much work for to little return. One day she called me and we have been good friends since.

Well not really broke up with my bestest friend. She really needs to move in another suburb and thats really sad for me. Beacause i wont get to see her specially every morning where my hair is still undone and she absorbs everything ...so thats really sad. Sometimes even you say to yourself that its hard to be away from the person you've spent the whole life with.. which they have to go and you have the hardest time to let go.

Wow - Yes.. My best mate for 17 years! We both straight dudes, but friendship was strong. He recently married somebody he doesn't like. Plus he could do so much better! After not being able to reason with him, I had to let him move away to a doomed marriage! Not a fun thing to watch, I'm sure he will come around - just not sure how many years will go past :( --- You should call your friend back too, she was probably just going through her thing. Maybe she has changed and may want to catch up!

I have had this happen to me once. It's a bad situation, I know, but it's life. My best friend for seemingly my young life (I was a year-old when she was born and our famliies were really close) and I had a falling out and I think that we got to find out about each other and how much life affects people, regardless of how close people are before. To make a terribly long story short, I realized that I was her best friend only when it benefitted her, and I thought it was manifestly unfair. We lost touch with each other, and we grew up together until I was 21 and she was 20; it was just the direction that life took us.

we should not mis our close friend.. they know our feel and they can understand our feel. so u can cal ur best friend and talk to your friend. if u feel some thing bd to cal your friend. first give a message to your friend that you need to talk some thing personal then you can talk free with your friend

I've had friends like that. One is the type that can only handle one friend at a time. Over the years I've come to accept that but we're still friends and very good ones at that. I still call her one of my best friends because we can pick up right where we left off as if we've never been apart even if it's been years down the road since we spoke. I remember when she called me out of the blue and left a message with my parents and how shocked I was but I called her back and we got together once again and then faded out again and I called her a few months later and it just went on from there just like that. I haven't seen her in years now but we still keep in some what contact. My hubby was in the army and we moved a lot so I couldn't see her much but we still kept in contact.
