    I don't have many close friends except

    for two named Jason and Chris. lately, it feels as if we've been drifting apart because they each have love interests that they're interested in and over the course of our friendship, I have been feeling a little distance because I'm not really included that much whenever the...

    I had a good friend who spread rumors about me all over, it has been years and I still have people who believe them. Even when they know that the person was a compulsive liar.
