    I stopped talking to my best friend

    because I feel as if I got him into trouble and I've done nothing but wrongs against him, he is more than just a best friend he is my brother.

    I Changed.

    When I was told that changing myself for the better would cause me to lose friends, I didn't believe it. But it did. My former best friend loved drama. If she could start an argument or get under someone's skin, she always took the opportunity. I got sick of it one day. We had a...

    The ultimate betrayal?

    Years ago, I had a best friend who was going out with my older brother. She had been my closest friend at high school and I took on the roll of match maker because they seemed so perfect for each other. We fell out because he found out she had been cheating on him. Actually a...

    I actually lost one because of a girl.

    He accused me of trying to get in her pants. I responded "I don't do bimbos, it ain't me... You in the other hand would do just about anyone with a vagina.

    All For The Price Of One.

    She wasn't my only friend...or even my only best friend, for that matter. But I loved her, I cared for her and I put her before myself many times. About 6 months ago, her long-term boyfriend broke up with her. She was devestated. I spent every waking moment with her, on the...

    Because she stopped being a best friend.

    "There's nothing to move on from to begin with." That still hurts, even when it's already been more than a year. Like a wound that take ages to dry up. With a pain that lingers even when it has already turned into a scar. A scar that will always remind you of their existence...

    We Grew Apart

    I felt she wasn't interested in having me in her life anymore. I didn't feel close to her like when we were younger. She took longer to respond to my emails. I felt mistreated by her whenever I wanted us to have a reunion and she'd abandon the conversation. Then when I asked her...

    I Stopped Talking To My Best Friend

    Popularity caused my friend to betray our frienship. She never once showed that she was sorry for treating me the way she did. And now, she doesn't have any friends. Guess she had to learn the hard way. Friendships based on popularity don't last.

    I Suppose She Doesn't Qualify As a Best Friend Anymore

    I haven't really stopped talking to her - there is no rift between us. We just went different directions in life, and have nothing in common anymore. When we get together now, it is to reminisce about the fun of the past.
