My “best friend” will act like a good friend when we talk online, but when I see her in public, she acts live we've never met. I'll try to talk to her face-to-face, but she won't even acknowledge my presence. It's been going on for about a month now, and I've done all I can to forget her, but it hurts. What can I do?
I'm not gonna lie, girl: Losing a friend is really hard, and it hurts even more when it's your bestie that you've gotta cut free.
Hang with a different crowd
Think of it like a bad breakup with a guy. Surround yourself with other true friends and let them help you get your mind off of things. Once you're having fun with your new girls, you'll begin to realize that you're doing A-OK without your old BFF.
Cut the cord
Just like with a breakup, you need to make the split absolute. If she won't talk to you face-to-face, send her an email expressing your feelings. Tell her that you've loved being her friend, but you can't take the split personality friendship she's currently throwing your way. Sometimes, you gotta say buh-bye.
Still feelin' blue?
If you're dwelling on your old amiga, consider this: Was she really a good friend to you? What about your relationship with her made your life better? If it helps, make a list of pros and cons. I bet the negatives will outweigh the positives.
