Should I dump my bragging best friend?

My best friend and I have been friends for 6 years. The thing is, she is always trying to be better than me (and she's succeeding, too.)...

MOD MOD MOD!
I'm always afraid to drop a friend or anything because the friends i have are ALL drama queens and will like spread rumors and bully me if i do. Next year i'm going to middle school and i want to start over but i cant when they are going to be there. One girls one acctually told the other girl she didnt like me and thought i was a bad influence. UM HELLO her daughter bullies me and the other girl. shes bullied me since first grade and i was really passive. How do i get them out of my life???




Hey girl,

If they're bullying you, their friendship isn't healthy at all! Totally understand why you'd wanna escape. To avoid the drama that might happen if you totally dropped them as friends, try gradually becoming less available and transitioning into being friends with other people. Get involved in different activities, try a part time job, join a new sport, etc. - do things to meet new people who are more like you. Since you'll be so busy, you can use that as an excuse if your old friends want to hang out. Try to slowly stop texting/IMing them so often. Over time, it'll feel as if you just drifted apart, which is natural when friends are growing up. MUCH better than a blow out fight and all the drama that would come with it!

I kind of have that same problem more different though. I try really hard in my work and then I don't get a good grade, but then when my friend BARELY tries she get's an A! I mean SERIOUSLY?!!? Sometimes I just feel like giving up..ya know..

my bff moved here from Indiana a while ago, she's a good friend but she got mad at me for not going to a after club thing on Mondays....I've been going for 6 years now and this was the first time i missed since she's been going. she keeps making me feel guilty and im missing school now cuz i have pink ye so i try to call her but she wont tlk to me or call me back so i cant tlk to her and i really need too! but the thing is...what do i say to her!?!?!?!?! im really nervous cuz i always mess up, well im starting to wonder if shes just not, my BFF! i really dont wanna leave her! WHAT DO I SAY?!

 

Hey chica, it's definitely unfair of your BFF to get mad at you over that. Explain to her that you've been sick, and that there's nothing you can do about it. If she still doesn't get it, then she's just being unreasonable!

MODMODMOD one of my bffs always is competing with me she wants to be taller and get better grades and stuff so what happened is she got a better score on a math test contest thing i wanted to win and then she bragged quite a bit and i said it mad me annoyed and mad and she said thats the point so idk what to say because i am a bit shy so she can be bossy too! what do i do thx a lot in advance

 

Hey, girl! Your friend makes herself feel good about herself by putting other people down, which is not a very attractive quality. Since she said her point is to upset you, try ignoring it for a bit to see if she lightens up once she sees that it doesnt affect you. The big thing here is to just be the bigger person by not doing it back to her. Lead by example!!

MOD MOD MOD I've been having a tough time at school. Not the school work so much but the drama. I go to a small private school where everybody knows you and if you do something that is how everyone is going to know you and the only way you can possibly get a clean reputation is by going to a different school. Anyways, theres been major drama lately (which isn't good because I do not have time for it). I was just wondering if there were any tips you could give me on avoiding drama? I also am disliked by some people right now because of the drama. What should I do to try to make it better without denying it and saying that I didn't do it (like the usual bad habit that I do)?

 

 

Hey chickadee! You could always just start fresh tomorrow. Be nice to everyone, and don't talk about people bad behind their backs. Steer clear of gossip, and be in a positive mood all the time at school. Be approachable, and show everyone that you're really trying to put the drama behind you.

MOD MOD MOD at her and Nancy had worked everything out and that no matter where I spread these "rumors" I wasn't going to break their friendship. The message that she send also included some other stuff that is irrelevant to this post but it made me feel very upset. I got bombarded with drama even when some of it wasn't my fault. In order to avoid such situations in the future, what should I do? Also, how can I keep myself from drama and general?

okay well, Things are pretty complicated for me and my best friend right now. Were in our first year of junior high and we promised to stay best friends forever and to not let anyone or anything separate us. In my class she is super popular with basically everyone in our grade which leads to many girls wanting to be her friend. Nothing wrong with that. But now she spends more time with them than me...I don't want to be clingy to her but I feel like I really need to try to hang out and talk to her if I want to be noticed by her. I don't want us to drift apart or replace each other. That's the worst scenario. What do I do?




Hey! try to assert yourself more when she's around her other friends. Don't be clingy but if you get to know them too then you can all be friends Smile

The girl I consider my very best friend has another friend who means more to her than me. It hurts so much to know that I am nobody's best friend.




Hey girlie, keep meeting new people. You'll find someone who thinks you're super awesome and you'll be their favorite person! Just hang in there. Remember that your bff can have more than one bff so you might be hers too.

MOD: I hate life, it is my first year of high school and im going insane. theres so much drama, i cant take it. it seems like nobody likes me. if i am not who i really am people call me dry and say im too serious, but if im myself then everyone thinks im weird. i came to this school with no friends. i really hate life right now. i recently lost a close loved one. things just are not going on, my parents recently got devorced. i need help and i cant get envolved cuz all the clubs already started and im too ugly and shy to talk to anyone anyways

 

 

Hey chickadee! I'm so sorry that you're unhappy Frown

Maybe you should talk to a guidance counselor, or a teach that you trust at school. Sometimes, it just makes you feel better to talk and vent to someone to get everything out. As for joining clubs, there has to be some outside of school, in your community. Maybe you can sign up to take a new art class, or join a fitness class at a gym? You'll meet people, and you'll feel great after both Smile

oh my gosh i had that issue also!!! when i figured out that she was a two-face also i just busted my gears and said " See ya Sucker!" and now i hang out with really cool friends that don't brag and always defend me when someone is obnotious at me. i dont know if this helps but think....... has she eer talked about me behind my back? Does she talk about other people? Does she brag to everyone? Maybe your friend kinda looks up to you. Maybe she's having a personal issue and she feels like she needs to let is out by being a brat. look at these things carefully before you decide to dump you best friend.

MOD MOD MOD Last year I had two great best friends but this year one of them I don't see anymore and the other one has ditched me for a new set of friends. I made the huge mistake of hanging out with just them and a few other people last year and so this year I'm all by myself. I've started hanging out with some of my friends that I really didn't talk to last year but I feel like I'm pushing into their group and being annoying. This year has been really tough for me and I really need a best friend but now I don't have one! What should I do? Thanks(:

 

 

Hey girly girl! I would continue to hang with your other friends and invite them places. Why not have everyone over to your house for a sleepover? Make an effort to include yourself in their group by planning events for everyone to get together. That should help you fit in better. Also, why not join some other activities/sports to meet some more people? And, that's not just limited to school... you can join community activities, like a youth group, or take a class at a local arts center. You'll meet lots of new people Smile

I want to get in the popular crowd, how do I do it?

by CcGrace on 10/16/2010 6:33:04 PM

 
 

MOD!
My BFF is really weird. She is loud and obnoxious and really embarassing. Alot of people dont like her because she is irratating and shes not a very good friend. She doesnt care about what I have to say she just waits for her turn to talk. Whenever I try to talk to her about this she gets really upset. I only like her because I need a friend and there isnt any better friends there for me. What do I do?

 

Hey girl,

This isn't a very good attitude about your friend! However, a good friendship does involve both people talking and listening to the other one. I know you've said you've talked to her before about not listening, but maybe you could let her know that it hurts your feelings when you feel like she isn't listening to what you're saying, or that you want to listen to her but you also want to be listened to. When she gets upset, you can let her know that it's OK and you are looking forward to the change in the future.

 

Maybe instead of focusing on her bad qualities and why other people don't like her, though, you can think of some of the things you like about your BFF. Somehow you became friends, so there must be something cool about her! Just because other people think she's obnoxious doesn't mean you have to think that, too! You could even try to prove them wrong by having fun with your BFF, which would show that she's a cool person to hang out with.

Okay this is going to be long, so my apologies in advance. I've always had a lot of friends. But I've never had any close friends. I have a lot of stress in my life and while girls dump gossip on my that I do NOT want to listen to, I keep quiet and keep my mouth shut. I finally found a great friend who wants to help me. My dilemma? She is always busy. She goes back and forth through boy friends, has band, softball, choir, cheer leading, and she has a super busy family. So she wants to help, but is always busy. I NEED to talk to someone. I need a friend but I'm starting to think I'll never have one. She is the best friend I have and I see her for maybe 10 minutes each day. Even if she does, by some miracle, finally get to talk one on one with me, how do I open up to her? I have very low trust in people.
I'm sorry its so long, but I need help :*(




hey when you get a chance to talk to her be like hey do you have a sec, i need to vent to someone? I'm sure she'll let you open up to her Smile

Hey girly! I already answered the first part of this question in your first post. I would try my hardest not to slip up. Gossip can be tempting, but it only comes back to hurt you in the end. After all, if the other girls are gossiping with you about other people, then they most likely would gossip about you too when you're not around.

( not severly but like it just hurts for like a few mins) HELP ME PLEASEE!!!!




Hey girl, you need to have a heart-to-heart with her. Tell her what she's doing is hurting you — physically and mentally. She may not know her joking is going a little too far. If it's not joking, and she's doing it purposely,  I'd suggest sticking to your other friends. True friends don't treat each other like punching bags.

MOD MOD MOD! sry i keep asking for questions! well i tell my friend a lot of secrets... but over texts. she (lets call her "h") forwards me a lot of things other people say to her but the thought never occured to me she would do that with mine! so then today i asked her about this one thing. my friend (lets call her "e") in the locker room said AS A JOKE that she and h were talking about me at her house and that she couldnt tell me what it was they were talking about. i left the locker room before she did so she never got the chance 2 tell me it was a joke! so when i asked h she said it wasnt true and then i asked e and she told me it was a joke and then she told me that i told h that i said they called me the "b" word and a slut! and when i asked her she told me h forwarded that to her! thats not even close to wat i said! all i said was that she told me that they were talking about me! i told h i couldnt trust her since she changed and fwded my txt! should i dump her? HELP!



Hey girl, wow, that does sound confusing and frustrating.  I can understand why you would feel hard.  It also sounds like it would be really hard to get the facts straight with all this texting and forwarding going on.  You might want to talk to your friend and get the facts straight.  Once you get more perspective, you will be able to decide if it's worth giving this friendship another chance.  In the future, be wary of someone who forwards texts (and be careful what you send!).  xoxo

My friend does something similar to that too! She always tells me that her family might lose their house because they are so poor. I went to her birthday party this year and she got like $100, a laptop, an iPod touch, and a bunch of Justin Bieber stuff. I don't know about you, but that doesn't sound like poor. She brags and shows off all the time. She always says she can get boys better and faster than I can. When she said that, I said "Well how come the last 3 times you asked a guy out, they rejected?" (btw, this is true) Then she just put on a little pouty face and stormed off. I even asked those 3 guys and they said they would rather date me than her. I am not trying to be talking behind her back, but if it is as bad as this, well honey, you got to let it out.
P.S. if anyone needs advice, I am good with it! <:~)->--< (this emoticon is trademarked)

I have a problem. My best friend keeps blowing me off to hang out with her boyfriend! We made plans to have a sleepover tonight and go to the mall but it never happened. I tried calling her, texting her and posting on her facebook wall bit she never answered. Everytime I went to her profile, she had updated her status saying like "oh I love my bf" and "hanging out with my bf for the day" I'm really mad cause she can see him everyday at school and she hangs with him on the weekends but we go to different schools and everytime we make plans on the weekend, she blows me off. What should I do?




Hey! let her know that your upset and if she keeps flaking out just don't make plans with her anymore. good luck!

You don't want to get too involved in their argument, but maybe you could call everyone together for the purpose of trying to work things out, if you think that might be helpful. Tell them that you aren't on either side and want to be able to all hang out again like you used to. Maybe you could also mention something to each friend individually about how it isn't nice to call the other friend names and remind them that if they want to be friends again, they're going to have to stop saying rude things to each other. Try to bring up some happy memories of hanging out from the past. However, I don't know how involved you really want to get in their arguments. If they seem to not want you getting in the middle of things, I'd try to hang out with each friend separately for now and hopefully they will work the problem out on their own.

Hi tonights my homecoming and yesterday i was asked by a guy friend to go with him, even thought we are meeting there in seperate groups. I said yes because hes new and i felt bad if i said no. The problem is, none of my friends have dates and honestly, i dont really want one. i hate dancing and i dont know what to talk about wih him. I mean i do like him and i kinda wished he would ask me, but now that he did i dont really want to go with him. I kinda just want to hang out with my friends because we dont see each other much during the school day. Please please help?

 


Hey girl,

Since you already said yes, I don't think it would be nice to
tell him no on the day of the dance. However, since you're going
separately and meeting there, I think it's likely that you'll be able
to hang out with everyone at once. You'll probably spend some time
dancing with him, but everyone is so close together at a dance like
homecoming that you'll be able to be near your friends and the guy. It
may even be too loud to actually talk, so I think more of the talking
will come beforehand when you're with your friends getting ready or out
to dinner.


 

If you do end up hanging out with the guy a lot, you shouldn't
lead him on — if you start getting the feeling that he really likes you
or wants to ask you out, and you don't want to go out with him, don't
respond to these signals with flirting or smiling too much — just be
polite. If you decide not to go with him, start off with a compliment,
like that he's a really nice guy. Then go into your reason: you decided
you'd rather just go with your friends because you never get to see
them during the school day, and apologize to him.

Hey girl, I'm sorry about the tough situation.  It's hard to say without knowing the exact details.  If there was anyone who you feel like you want to apologize to, start with that.  Tell them that you made a mistake.  Consider talking with an adult you trust who can help you navigate the tough sitch.  And I'm sure that you know this by now, but be careful what you say about people - even if you find them irritating.  xoxo

Hey girl, If you've talked to him a few times, I think it would be totally cool to chat with him (think how excited you would be to talk with someone new!).  A simple "Hey, how's your week going? Smile" is totally fine.  If you wanted to make sure he remembered you, you could say, "Hey, I haven't seen you since ___"  Give it a shot, I think it will be great!

i used to be friends with these two girls who hated eachother. When i moved and then came back after two years, they were best friends! at first i thought we could all be friends, but one of them is mean, and the other is nice. BUt the nice one just laughs when the mean one makes fun of me. I hate being around the mean one, but love hanging out with the nice one. THe thing is, they're always together, and are best friends. I'm also not that popular, and they are. I don't want to be popular because I know that a lot of their friends are really mean, but I want to be friends with just my nice old friend. How can I show her I want to be friends without telling her how I feel about the other one? what should i do?




Hey girl, it's hard to tell a girl you don't like her BFF. I suggest for the time being to be civil to her other friend. On the weekends, ask if you can hang out with the nice girl one-on-one. You're going to have to compromise here because she's not going to drop her other friend.

One of my best friends is REALLY mean to her mom. she always has been, but my friend told me about once her mom told her to do homework and she hit her mom. the other ngiht we were driving to dance, and she was literraly SCREAMING at her mom "TURN ON THE RADIO I CANT HEAR IT!" when is was perfectly loud. her mom is basically scared of her own daughter. her mom said (quietly) "dont talk to me like that.." "shut up mom u make a big deal out of everything god!" How can i tell her to be nice to her mom?




hey! Just tell her "geez you are really bratty to your mom" criticism from a peer might make her reconsider her behavior.

I forgot to bring lunch money for the second day in a row (Ouch!) so I didn't eat and my friend was all like "You make bad choices." And she says that all the time! Like when I'm tired in the morning because I was up so late studying. "You make bad choices." I'm at a new school this year, and just met her. I'm also a really shy person and don't just do up to people and say "hi" so making new friends isn't really something I can just go do, you know?

Okay so i have a problem,
My best friend she gets to go on all these trips all the time around the world because her family comes from money. But i am not able to go on as many trips as she is because of the money. All of our friends always seem to like her better then me and i always feel like im always in her shadow. I am kind of jealous of how much more popular and rich she is then me. I try to be thankful for what i have but i cant help being jealous of her. what do i do?

MOD! ok so one of my good friends has been mean lately. me and my best friend have realized that she doesnt wait 4 us anymore even tho we wait 4 her. also we do this thing where we poke each other in the stomoch (its weird ik!) and one day when i wasnt in line she told my best friend and another friend to do it so hard id say ow! and she like hurts me like that alot its so annoying! HELP!

 

Hey girlie, if she's not being nice to you then don't go out of your way to be nice to her. Stop waiting for her and things might change when she's the one who's feeling neglected.

MOD! hey(: ok so i have 2 problems. 1. there's this one girl who now hates me because she assumes i spread a rumor about her which i didn't and i tried telling her i didn't didn't spread it and also apologized for any thing that may have caused the rumor but she still won't forgive me. she's in none of my classes, but i've been trying to not bump into her because i don't want her to confront me. ik she still hates me because she talks bad at about me to the kids in her lunch class at lunch. 2. i have a friend that lately shes been into acting all fake and pretending shes a girl with the perfect life who has drama in her life & is super popular. i kind of can guess why and i think this is turning into a toxic friendship but everytime i try to back out i get lured back especially because i don't have many other good friends to talk to (although i am slowly making more friends) & with her i can tell her anything. what to do? thanks!

 

 

Hey girly girl! You could try writing this girl a letter and explaining to her how you feel. Tell her again that you didn't start the rumor, and that you just want her to know that. If she still doesn't believe you, then I would forget about her. I know it can be scary to think that she may confront you, but you can't worry about that everyday. Over time, it will heal itself, and you won't have to worry anymore. As for your other friend, you can still be friendly to her and nice, but not hang with her outside of school. I would keep joining new activities and trying to make new friends Smile

JOURNAL KEEPING:


i think that keeping a journal is important. when we grow up, i bet we are going to wonder what we were thinking when we were 13. if you have a journal or a record of that time, we can go and see exactly what we were thinking. or iif someday we have daughters, we could give them our records to see that we will have gone through the same thing. inventors and presidents and well-known people throughout history kept journals so that so that people today can read them. it all gets recorded in history. maybe one day i will be recrded in history and people will read my journals...

I just made a new friend, but the problem is I sometimes don't know what to say... We walk the same way to school, we just say "hi" and keep walking and there are sometimes these moments of awkwardness. I am usually a very social person and I love to chat, but I don't know what to say or talk about. I want to get to know her, but I don't know what to ask!! PLEASE HELP ME!!!




Hey girl, why not ask about classes or her weekend? Make small talk and if she says something that strikes you ("I watched Glee," etc.), jump in and make a new convo about the shared interest.

How can i make people like me?? im sorta quirky but smart, but i dont think people like that! also im not that outgoing, so how can i become more likable and friendly and stuff??? thank you!




Hey! There's no one way to. You just have to come off as genuine to other people. If you have trouble with that, put yourself in more social settings and observe others. You'll get the hang of it!

MODMODMOD I always see that the populars are having more fun. More attention from boys, hanging out in giant groups, always someone to talk to, and confidence. I know a lot of people but the popular people intimidate me. I feel like I am such a loser next to them. I know i'm not a nerd or a geek but still. It's like I want them to like me, but i'm scared to sit by them at school. Why do I feel this way?

 

Hey girl, It happens to lots of girls to feel self-conscious or not good about themselves.  When that happens, it's easy to compare to other people and think that they have it better.  But someone told me some really great advice lately:  Don't compare your insides to someone else's outsides.  Those girls may look like they are having fun and are super-confident, and it might be true, but it's possible that they have days when they feel less-than-perfect, too.  Think of everyone as an equally great potential friend, and remember that you are a pretty fabulous girl yourself.

Hey girl! I think you should take with your best friend and tell her how you're feeling! She probably isn't aware that she is being insulting! Talk it our first and see if you can settle your problems, but also be outgoing, friendly, and nice to other girls too and you will be able to have multiple BFF's.

Hey girl!  No sweat!  You should totally hangout with him there if he asks you and you're into him.  Maybe you'll be able to tell if he's really into you while you two hangout!

I'm getting really worried about one of my friends. I'm afraid she may have an eating disorder. She rarely eats at lunch saying she's not hungry, or has a lot of homework. I don't want her to starve herself! When her friend tried to talk to her about it, they got in a HUGE fight and didn't speak for months! How can I help her?




hey! All you can do is to continue to remind her to eat, and tell an adult  if it gets out of hand. Good luck!

My "bff" took my bf, so now they both love each other, and whenever I buy something or like something, for clothes, and boys, she always has to like them, like it, or buy it like how I have it! OMG I'm so tired of it! This 7th grader I like i think likes me back, and she's upset cuz she can't have em, cuz she has my old bf, what can i do? i wanna stay friends, just not bffs, how can i tell her?

 

Hey girlie, tell her how much it bothers you that she always wants the same things you do. Let her know that it's cool to do her own thing and like what she wants to like.

Thank god she doesn't like him back because she's taken. I told my guy friend and he decided to talk to my crush. I am so confused because my crush told my guy friend that he likes me. I'M SO CONFUSED!! Please help Frown

 

 

Hey girly girl! It sounds like you def need to tell him yourself that you like him. It's possible that he could have gotten nervous when he was talking to you, and so he said that he liked someone else. You should totally talk to him and tell him how you feel.

MODMODMOD!! Hey I have a similar problem. I am in the seventh grade. In fourth grade Riley was my bff, and in 5th Amanda was .In fifth grade amanda and i were SO close! I kinda forgot Riley though cause she wasnt in my class. In sixth grade they both were and we became a 3some, tho i didnt relize the Riley was still left out. I started including her and Amnada equally.That's when amanda started changing. she yells at us all the time. Sometimes I see the old Amanda come throo but other times shes lost. My mom also really likes her. I cannot bare to loseher, but I'm really done. I've tried talking to her but she just gets WAY to defensive and yells at me. What do i do??

 

You and riley need to be a united front about this. I would write amanda a note or e-mail explaining how you feel and asking her to please try and see it from your point of view. That way, she is forced to consider what you are saying before she responds to you! Good luck, girlies!!

... First through fourth grade I was a prissy, smart-alic, pushy girl... but I was popular. Pretty soon, the "group" I was hanging out with kicked me out, and fourth grade, I was hated, ignored, unwanted...
So, I changed. I kept my mouth shut whenever I accomplished anything, I gave others credit for my doings, and I was accepted... but I was never "popular" again. At least... that's I hope is the right choice.
Now, three years later, sure I'm not popular... I don't care. Sometimes... I imagine what it'd be like if... if I never changed? If I were still standing arm-in-arm with all the other popular girls? How would I be? I'm cool with everyone... everyone...? I don't know. I don't know what I have to deal with yet. And, I'm hoping I don't have to... point is. I changed. I hated it, at least that's what I thought, but... it's good for me, for my new BFFs... sure. I had good grades, I was popular... but so I am... right now. Smile <33 ...without the attitude. ;P

MOD**MOD** i have a friend. she is my best friend too. i luv that chick to death but i wanna shine on my own for once! everytime we do sumthing together she steals all the spotlight and everyone forgets im there. when i talk to my other best friend about and and ask her how i shud explain she is like im not over reacted cuz its true i noticed it alot but she didnt know wha to do either. now i wanted to do gymnastics to make new friends and maybe later get on the team. but if she does the same its going to be another thing she steals my thunder in. i hate being in the backround all the time! what do i do?




Hey girl,  your sitch sounds a lot like Blair and Serena's on Gossip Girl. My suggestion is to a) realize it's not a competition and b) sign up for gymnastics and not worry about her "stealing your thunder." It's important to realize there's enough room for two under the spotlight together.

i Liked my friends brother for a long time and i got over him in tim (like 6 years kindof time) and then we became really close friends. last night he texts me to tell me that he has a gf and i cant tell his 'rents or sisters (ARGH!!) I told him i was happy 4 him which i am. It made me soooo happy to hear him like that all happy and gushy but maybe that was the sister-friend-girl part of me but the other part of me felt a little hurt. Because even though i knew we'd never be together because hes 15 and im 13 it stung a lot u kno? like i have to be careful of what i say to him because there's this whole other girl that means so much more to him then i ever will and he's only known her for 2 weeks and he's known me since we were 5 and 7.Thats like seven years!! Can u tel me what to do to make me feel better?




Hey girl, I think you need to distance yourself for a bit from him. Know you are important to him in a way this girlfriend will never be: you're a longtime friend. Keep his secret but take some time for yourself. You're still a little hurt, but time heals.

I know exactly how you feel. I had a friend just like that. I talked to her about it and it turned into a huge fight at recess last year so I suggest for you to do it privately so the whole grade isn't all talking about it. We still don't talk so if you still want to be friends you should take a different approch than I did.
