    Ever have a falling out with a long time best friend? Do you regret not making amends?

    I was lucky to have the same best friend for 25 years, we never fought. This 6 months, though, has been a complete mess. I didnt fight with her, just her long term bf with who I got along previously very well with. At least once a month him and I would have a decent sized blow out with each other. We'd always make up in a day or two, but it was bad. Recently her and I actually got into a disagreement, and I just needed some time... and he attempted to get in the middle, sent me dozens of ridiculous texts. He made the situation that was small into a huge fucking ordeal and i am just so sick of the bullshit that i blocked his number and hers and cut them completely out of my life. I dont have the energy for it anymore. My best friend sent an email asking if her and i could just go out together, i didnt even respond. It makes me sad that thats just it, but im so over all the drama. My other friends say i should patch it up with her, but im still so angry. Anyways just venting.

    Time away from the situation does a world of good. You can email her in the near future.

    My childhood best friend and I had a falling out in 1999 and didn't patch things up until 2002.

    The friendship was never the same..though it had been fizzling in 1999..plus, she got married and moved out of state.

    I got annoyed at her over something in 2007 when she came to ny to visit family and she just never spoke to me again.

    Last year I tagged her in a Facebook photo and she messaged me.


    We've spoken a few times on the phone and also via text message. She sent me a wedding card which was nice.

    She recently called me to tell me her grandmother died...I was hurt because I was probably the last person she told and I used to call her grandmother "grandma"

    Our friendship just basically ran it's course, I guess. It used to really depress me but I'm over it now.

    People change

    Sexual tension with you and the bf?
    Go to coffee with her. If the bf has a large penis, she's probably off-balance a bit.

    She's stupid, not evil.

    Just let time pass, he will likely be gone. I'd say sticking to you and her doing things and pretending he doesn't exist would be a good idea.

    That'll be $250.

    It depends. Sometimes you need to talk it out. People are not mind-readers. But all relationships, friendships too, take work. You really have to put the time and contact in or it all goes by the wayside.

    Waaaaahhhhh. Of course he's gonna get involved. You have a blowup once a month then it's OK? Stop the drama and act like an adult.

    Well...I'm pretty sure it's over. We're both married and have different lives.

    Plus, my friend was never a touchy Feely let's talk about our feelings type.

    She's a math teacher...they say math teachers..usually men, though...are a bit cold

    You just answered your question. He's BIPOLAR. Imagine what it's like for her to be with him almost 24/7. And then you're arguing with him? He's BIPOLAR!
    You gotta keep your distance with this one. And go slow with her, and her only.
    Maybe they won't make it. Be lucky you don't have to go through him to get to
    her.
