    My best friend is not my best friend anymore,

    I guess. She had a crush on me and told me a few weeks ago. A few days after, she wrote that she couldn't do it -in an SMS. It sounded as if her mom had written it for her. That's what she always does, when things get tricky, asks her mom to fix it. I couldn't even call her back...

    Can Friendships Really Mean Nothing?
