    She's been my best friend

    since 9th grade. I am now 28 and realize we've grown a part. We have different priorities and I wish she would just do better.

    My Fault Or Hers?

    I've been best friends with "A" for about 2 years now. She lost her mom soon after we became friends. From the beginning we called each other sisters. She's 2 years younger than me and goes to public school, while I'm homeschooled. Things were going great up until 4 months ago...

    I Used to Have Friends

    Even a best friend, but we just kind of drifted away from each other. It was like I related to him less and less. I still don't understand what happened. All I know is that I used to have a friend and now I don't.

    You meet someone. You two get close.

    It's all great for awhile. Then someone stop trying. Talk less. Awkward conversations. The drifting. No communication whatsoever. Memories start to fade. Then that person you know becomes that person you KNEW. That's how it usually goes, right? Sad isn't it.

    It Hurts

    It hurts so much that even the memories turn ugly. Losing that one person who said they'd be your bestfriend forever. Knowing you were once their first choice and now your probably the last. I never want to let myself hurt like that again, it's mental suicide and I won't put...

    Firstly I don't really believe in 'best

    friends'. To me that term applies to the school yard. I have friends and close friends, however I wouldn't say I have a best friend. Anyway this one friend of mine I have known for about 16 years. We had some good times in the past going out together, I would go over his place...

    I feel like this post is out of place,

    but the reason that we're no longer best friends is because we just so happen to be dating now.

    Best Friends Can Become Strangers

    I had known my former best friend since we were in diapers. Our moms met in the doctors office when we were about a year old- two baby girls born days apart and with the same name. We stuck by each other through thick and thin. When I lost my house, she was there for me. When her...
