Dear Carol

BF vs. BFF: The one time you should be sticking up for your bestie

My BFF is mad at me. I have a new boyfriend and a group of us were hanging out and teasing each other, and one of his friends made a comment about how my friend is a little overweight. I laughed without thinking, and now she won’t talk to me at all.

 

Dear Silent Treatment,

Ouch. You can see how this hurt, right? It’s bad to feel left out, worse to feel laughed at. Next time, defend your friend. Even now, it’s not too late to say, “I’m sorry I didn't stick up for you. Please forgive me because our friendship means so much to me." Then make a plan for just the two of you so she doesn't keep feeling like a tagalong.
