    Get Over It...

    but at the time it really baffles me. A sudden end in communication is so immature and hurtful. Even if you are busy just take a lousy second to say."talk to ya later". If you are mad just say."I am mad and need time away." Value the friendship enough to be...

    Well there is one in particular.

    She has a friend a little older than us, and whenever they are together, she ignores me. I just follow her and act really shy and hurt but she still ignores me. She can be a brat.

    It happens so much to the point

    where I'll just walk away from the group. What ****** me off more is when they pretend to be concerned and ask me to come back. Then when I do, they just ignore me again.
