My best friend lives 90 minutes away i don't really visit her. But we skype and oovoo and stuff but we don't talk anymore. I tried calling but all she would do is answer and say her brother and moms bothering her and hang up. I try contacting her on the computer but nothing works. When we did talk i tried telling her we should talk more but then she would say she lost her ipod,the charger broke, or her computer broke. I don't want to be pushy or annoying but we haven't talked in 4 months and i really need to talk to her and tell her stuff. Shes my best friend and we used to talk to about (EVERYTHING) ever day but now i feel sad a alone cause we don't talk anymore. Please Help ;(
Hey girl! Distance can be so hard! Keep up the friendship but maybe reach out to other friends too. It might help to have someone near you to talk to and hang out with!

I just found out my BGF did something pretty bad..he made some racist comments on Facebook and now he's in big trouble with the school for it. My mom is saying I shouldn't be friends with him anymore..but I'm so confused. I've been like best friends with him for so many years and he's never said anything that sounded at all racist. I don't know what would cause him to write these things. I'm really hurt and confused...you know it's one of those times when you thought you knew somebody REALLY well but then discover you barely know them. I haven't actually talked to him about this because I don't know how to bring it up..
And I'm not allowed to have a Facebook so I don't know exactly what he said..just that it was pretty bad and directed at a couple people at my school.
I feel like I'm friends with a bad person now..should I just ditch him as a friend?? Any advice, I'd really appreciate it...I'm really sad and I don't know what to do.

When I started middle school, I didn't have many friends. I am a loner and am really quiet. I met 4 girls that I soon became best friends with. Well today when I was eating lunch with 3 out of 4 of them, I was kinda stalking them for fun, but not in a mean way. They called me a stalker. When I went up to them before our next classes after lunch began, they didn't know I was there and I said, "Hi," and they kept calling me a stalker. I feel like they are judging me because I am quiet. It wasn't my fault that they didn't know I was there. I told my friend that didn't eat with us that day about it and she said that basically became their own group, that's why she stopped eatting with us. She told me that real friends don't do that and that I should ignore them. The reason why I became a loner and a quiet person is because I have had past friendships that were destroyed by drama. So much drama that I can't stand it anymore.

My two very best friends in the whole world, they just told me that they're bi. I'm okay with that, but my mom doesn't like bi girls. I tried to invite them over for a sleepover, but my mom said no. I asked her why she doesn't like bi girls, and she said it's because it's unnatural. I've talked to her about it, even fought with her, telling her that they're still my best friends, and that they're very nice people. How do I get my mom to understand that they're alright for me to hang out with?

I need help. There's a school dance next week, and my friend Megan convinced me to do The Wobble with her at the dance. Then I talked to my other friend Ashley, convincing her to do it with us, and she agreed. Later that day, Megan says to me "Ashley just told me that you don't want to do The Wobble with us" I never said anything like that! Is Ashley trying to make me and Megan mad at each other? Do you think she was just being mean? Helen S.

This is a message to all girls:
I had a friend for four years. In that time she hit me, yelled at me, called me name, made me feel worthless, claimed that she was perfect and that I was inferior to her.
Then one day it was all over.
She ended it. I was not strong enough to do it first.
But something good came out of this though.
I met a real friend.
Never let someone do what that girl did to me.
You deserve better.

Its never OK to: Lie,hurt each other,tell secrets, spread rumors or make you be someone else around them, or there friends, if they do say good bye, and say hi to someone new!
by mamabear162 on 1/13/2013 5:19:55 PM
A friend should never, ever, EVER insult your other friends. whether it's because the friend whose insulting thinks your other friend is mean or dishonest, she should leave your outside life up to you and not get involved unless you are being hurt in a major way. a friend did that to me once, and i was so upset i ran to the bathroom and cried.

I think it's so STUPID when girls steal their friends/other girls bfs
I mean seriously there is plenty of fish in the sea
I mean I guess if u feel the urge to steal
Away your friends bf then go for it but let me
Say if u do u need to stop calling her your friend because
U are not a friend to her yup! Your pretty much a major
Umm what's a better word for this.... Harlet!

I sometimes make my friends feel guilty, but I don't mean to! I just kinda say "Oh, okay... " when my friends tell me I can't, say, have one of their potato chips at lunch or something. I honestly don't mean it!

I agree we shouldnt do those things to each other but we all sometimes make mistakes. So there are times I have slipped up and times where my friends have done the same. Its natural to make mistakes but if you do it on purpose to hurt someone that isnt right.

my bestie ,we will call her A,embarrasses me ALOT!!!!!!it gets really annoying cus she will tell embarassing stories infront of my boyfriend and other friends that would think i was really strange if they saw me do that and acouple days ago she told my ex that i stalked him on facebook(which i dont even have a facebook) and now he is going around telling ppl that and im kinda mad at her.ive asked her to stop several times but she wont and i have another friend who does this.plzzz help cuz i still wanna be friends with them
by bking62 on 1/5/2013 6:33:31 PM
I love my bestie, but she tells some of my secrets to her boyfriend, who doesn't like me! She claims that they're a "package deal," so whatever you tell to one of them becomes common knowledge. It's so annoying; I feel like I can't tell her anything anymore! I wish her relationship didn't have to change our friendship.
by WritingChic on 1/5/2013 6:31:29 PM
Me and my friend hit each other all the time. "Playful smacks" are totally and completely fine. And we constantly insult each other. Cause we're like sisters, and thats what sisters so. Well, not me and my actual sister because she's mean, but we used to do that.

by sammyy99 on 1/5/2013 3:04:53 PM
Be rude continually. I mean one little slip up is accidental and can be looked over but continually being all mean is not okay. I had a "friend" who was really rude while i was presenting a project (talking, giggling with others, playing on electronics) and when I asked her about it and told her that it was rude and made me annoyed, she told me to get over it and then later started hugging me and saying oh my bad. She did it again and then I said that you can't just do something and then apologize just so you can do it over again. Then, she started saying "whatever" so then later on in the day she started crying and was rude all over again. SO now we're not really friends anymore.
by appleduck101 on 1/5/2013 2:31:10 PM
My friend's BFF does pretty much all of those things to her... and she said I was was ruining her (my friend). And she said she hates me but won't give a reason why... she just doesn't like me. =(

She was seriously the biggest snob I've ever met idk why I was friends with her..but she would get me so sad and depressed about myself and my life and as soon as I stopped being friends with her I became SUCH a happier person! Don't let people who treat you poorly stick around in your life..they don't deserve anything from you.
