"Dear Carol, I feel like my friend and I are drifting apart"
A friend and I were really close this summer. We talked all the time and basically got through quarantine together. Then, this fall we started at different schools and didn’t talk as much. I feel like she doesn’t want to be around me anymore.
-Friends Or Not?
Dear Friends Or Not?,
It’s possible that her friendly feelings have cooled. But it’s also possible that she got super busy with classes. How about texting: “Happy Holidays!” Easy, right? Add emojis: friendly ones like cute hearts and stars or snowflakes or a Santa or menorah. Assuming she texts back, follow up with “Wanna get together Saturday?” If she doesn’t want to pick up where you left off, you will find new friends, I promise.
