What to do when your BFF drops you for her new BF
Your bestie just got her first boyfriend and you couldn't be happier for her...except now it feels like you *never* see her. Getting dropped by your BFF for her new favorite person can be hard, but you shouldn’t take it personally. Your friend is going through a transition, still figuring out how to manage her time between her new love life, school, family and friends. Just always remember that your BFF would never hurt you on purpose. Below are our tips & tricks to handling your new third wheel status.
Spill your emotions
Right when you’re starting to feel left out of the loop, tell your friend. It may be hard to confess how you feel, but you wanna let her know sooner rather than later. This way, she’ll know *not* to leave you out in the future.
Spend time with your other gals
Now that your main BFF may go her own way, take this as a chance to hang out with some other girls that you never get to socialize with as much. This is a great opportunity for you to make new friends and catch up with some old ones too.
Make use of her new beau
Don’t feel intimidated by her new boy. You two can become friends too...and if you’re feeling bold, ask if one of his friend’s would be interested in going out with you.
Plan group dates
Planning dates where everyone is included is always a good idea. This way, you’ll get to know your BFF's boyfriend more, but in a group atmosphere. It’s always easier to socialize with new people when you’re surrounded by others that you are already comfortable around.
Be there for her when she needs you
Although it may not feel like your BFF wants to spend time with you, there is going to be a day where she really wants to talk. Don’t turn your back on her, but let her know that you'll be there through thick and thin.
Remind her how much you value your friendship
Just because she may not talk to you as much as before she entered the dating world, doesn’t mean you should avoid her too. Make sure you still chat and stay up to date on each others' lives.
Give her time
At the end of the day, you have to know that your friend is just going through a phase. She’s still your BFF but she's super excited about her sweetie. It doesn't mean she does't care about you. In time, the excitement of her new relationship will wear off and it'll be back to normal between the two of you.
