My BFF and I have been
friends since pre-K. Lately, she ignores me for other friends. She rarely
invites me over. When I tried talking to her about it, she smiled and walked
away. How can I make her understand I’m lonely?
Dear Lost Without a BFF,
I’m sorry you’re feeling lonely. But instead of striving to make your friend
understand this, make new friends. Can you meet some girls at the pool or rec
center? Who else like to swim or throw Frisbees or go to concerts or whatever
it is you do in the summer? Going away for a vacation might also help clear
your mind. Is there a camp friend or cousin you can visit? It’s possible you
and your BFF will become close again, but when you see her, be upbeat rather
than letting her know you feel lost. When you want to get closer to someone,
it’s better to seem less needy.
