Friendships are some of the best things in the world.
Nothing is better than knowing you’ll always have people there for you no
matter what; and sleepovers are always a must. But what happens when one of
your besties stays far away? We’ve got the low down on how to find out if your
BFF is lying.
Is your usually ‘never stops talking’ bestie barely saying a
word during lunch? If so, then something is definitely wrong. Make sure to not
jump to conclusions but take her aside and ask her what’s wrong. Showing that
you care will make it easier for her to tell what’s really going on.
You found out that your crush is talking to another girl,
and every time you bring it up around your friends, Sarah always changes the
topic. She does whatever she can to steer the conversation away from your crush
and who his new girl may be. Chances are that Sarah knows more about the
situation than she’s telling you. Next time you talk to her bring up how upset
you are about your crush and straight up ask her if she knows anything. Being
forward with someone promotes honesty!
Friend Be Gone
You and Lizzie always Skype after Pretty Little Liars to discuss the episode, but for the past few
weeks Lizzie never even signed on and she’s been M.I.A at school so you can’t
even ask her about it. If you and your
‘joined at the hip’ BFF have been distant, there is definitely something going
on. Distancing herself from you is a coping mechanism she is using because she
is probably hiding info from you as well. Next time she’s around, approach her
and let her know that it’s hurting your feelings that she has gone M.I.A and
ask what’s wrong. Showing that you care about your friendship is super
You’re about to put the final touches of your make up on
when you get a text from Rachel saying that she can’t come anymore. Normally,
this wouldn’t bother you too much, but this is the fourth weekend in a row
where she has canceled on you last minute. Start paying attention to why she
says she can’t come and if this is the third time that her mom wants to have a
family game night, there is probably something fishy going on. Next time you’re with her fam, ask how the
game nights are going and see how they respond. This is a quick and easy way to
really find out what’s going on.
Is usually quiet Callie chatting up a storm recently? There
is probably a reason behind her abnormal behavior and the best way to find out
is by having one-on-one conversations with her. Blabbing on and on happens when
someone is nervous and if she is nervous around you chances are she is hiding
something. Talking privately with her will give her a chance to open up about
what’s going on without having all eyes be on her.
It’s never a good sign when friends start to be mean, and
it’s usually because something is going on in their life. If you start to
notice that usually sweet Emma is lashing out harsh words, pay attention to
what aggravates her and what could be going on. If she gets mean every time you
bring up Spring Break and how you wish she could vacay with you, there is
probably more pieces to the puzzle than meets the eye. Dealing with a meanie
pants is difficult but it is important to stand your ground and tell them that
it’s hurting your feelings. She most
likely doesn’t even notice her mean behavior and will soon apologize once she
realizes her actions.
One More Thing…
It is super important to never assume that a friend is lying
and pointing fingers in the wrong direction can make the situation worse.
Talking and being honest with your friends is the best way to go when dealing
with liars. Remember that everyone makes mistakes and that forgiveness is a
huge part of friendships!
