• My friends are copying me?

    I do figure skating. I love it. One day, my bff comes up to me and says she might join my class! I’m in alpha! She has never taken lessons. And then, another girl, who creeps me out a lot, says the same thing! What do I do?

    I live in New England and people are standoffish as ****, I go to public places and they're all into their phones and ipad and ****. I feel so alienated. My best friends are middle aged men I meet thru work and they're typically married and a bit leary of alienating their partners by spending too much time with a single, younger woman. I should get a husband or something but guys my age are so ******* blank and have their priorites elsewhere. I am suffering from lowkey depression and need to spend less time alone but I see no way to better fulfil my social needs.

  • Why do long distance movers tell their friends that they'll see each other again when they really won't?

    When people move long distance, especially out of state, that is when all friendships die immediately. Friendships may stand the test of time, job changes, and graduation, but no friendship can ever stand the test of a long distance move.

    When people move long distance, especially out of state, that is when all friendships die immediately. Friendships may stand the test of time, job changes, and graduation, but no friendship can ever stand the test of a long distance move. Literally, you might try and plan a get together with that friend for lunch, but months turn into years, and years into decades, without ever a get together. You watch as 20 years pass, then 30 years, then 40, then 50, then 60, and so forth. And still no get together or even a possibility of one. It's exactly like that friend passed away the day he/she moved long distance. The distance is far too great and the cost of travelling that distance is totally prohibitive. So why do friends still say they'll see each other again when they move long distance?

  • How do I break off a friendship?

    I have this friend who has been getting on my nerves more and more lately. Our personalities and senses of humor just don't match at all now and they just annoy me to no end. I don't want to hurt them or anything. How would I say I don't want to be friends anymore without hurting them?

    I've been friends with these two girls for a long time, and they haven't always been the nicest. I have gotten upset over it in the past, and don't really consider them friends anymore. It got even worse when they started to like boys. It's all they talk about. I just happen to be friends with a lot of boys, and they keep messing with me about it, despite my constant disliking of it.They ridicule my interests and belittle me time and time again. They are very codependent, and I never see them apart, and they never seem to want to do anything with me. Despite all this, we are still in many situations where I have to hang out with them, and I hate it. There's something stopping me from ending the relationship, but I don't know why, since I am getting nothing out of it. What should I do?

  • Is it okay to be slightly upset? Is my friend being a bit selfish, or is it me?

    Best answer: I can understand your disappointment, but maybe something's going on with her. Maybe she even feels that running is more important to you than she is. Right now, I'd say give her a little space and next time you talk to her - ask her how she's doing. Let her talk first and then go into your exciting... show more
    Best answer: I can understand your disappointment, but maybe something's going on with her. Maybe she even feels that running is more important to you than she is. Right now, I'd say give her a little space and next time you talk to her - ask her how she's doing. Let her talk first and then go into your exciting news if she seems interested. If she's not, perhaps it might be a sign she's not a supportive friend. I get that you wanted to share a lot of things with her, but she might be overwhelmed with her own thing. It could be anything, really. I'd say just talk to her from the heart, be there for her too and I hope things work out!

    After 3 long years of dealing with social anxiety and depression i lost contact with all my friends. With the insolation that comes with that, I haven t been out much and got experience or stories that can easily bring up an interesting conversation. So I m kinda stuck, I m feeling better and want to make new friends because I remember how great it feels. But I don t know how and what to talk about. Because when I actually talk to someone it s feels shallow and never leads to anything more then a first and last conversation. So if you have some advice I m all ears.

    I would like some help in deciding between two girls. I'm a 26 year old guy. Girl #1 She is a 24 year old Elementary school teacher. She is really elegant, polite, and a strong Christian. She is really innocent, but doesn't have a lot of experience in the world because she has been raised really sheltered. She doesn't drink or anything. She doesn't cuss, and likes to babysit a lot. She is really loyal and loves strongly, but doesn't have a lot of self confidence and always wears stuff that covers herself. She also doesn't have any friends. Girl #2: She is 22 and finishing her last semester of college before becoming a middle school teacher. She is really sweet and down for anything. She is pretty classy, but not religious at all. She is very loyal and fun to hang out with. She has her nose pierced and likes to dress up to go out and shows a little bit, but makes sure to be classy. She lives on her own and doesn't get stressed out to easy. One of her favorite things to do is to have a beer at the bar with her friends. Which girl should I date?

    So I have this friend that I’ve known for a couple of months now. We are really close and she’s one of my best friends but sometimes she can be really mean with me. Like by example; she’ll get mad at me for the stupidest things ever. she’ll get mad at me if my bus is late and say that I left her alone and she’ll yell at me and get really mad at me ( it’s not even my fault that my bus is late) but she acts like it is. Other stuff that she does: she talks really mean with me using insults and very bad words, she makes fun of my biggest insecurities ( she knows that I’m very insecure about them, but yet she still makes fun). There’s a guy that I like and whenever I talk about him she always tells me that he’s too good for me and that a guy like that would never want a girl like me. Today my bus was late and she came up to me and started scolding me and insulting me, calling me a bad friend for leaving her alone so I told her that it’s not my fault and to stop being annoying, after a couple mins she yelled at me and said that I embarrassed her. Yesterday, she told me something and I didint understand what she said so I asked her to repeat it again and she called me stupid and deaf. Whenever I tell her to stop she rolls her eyes and says that I’m too sensitive, that I get mad too easily. She says that the things that she tells me aren’t mean and that I should stop getting mad. I hate having to go to school because I know that I’ll have to deal with her and the mean remarks. Carol

He has more money than I do, and since he is the one who canceled, I feel I should be reimbursed. Why should I just be expected to give up $20? Who's right?

I have a friend who I sit with at lunch and we’re pretty good friends, but sometimes he can just be really rude to me. He’ll ignore me, he’ll tell me he doesn’t care when I tell him things, and sometimes he’ll treat me like I’m dumb. I even got him a Christmas present, and I’ve gotten him food, but he continues to just have this weird resentment toward me. I try to be nice, and I don’t understand what I’m doing wrong. Another time this guy who I’m okay with constantly makes me feel like ****. He’s made fun of the way I look, telling me I look like a lesbian (which I’m not) and just picks on me all the time. One day I just snapped and was yelling at him to shut up, I can’t believe I had to go as far as to yell in class at a guy that was bothering me. I also have this friend who I think is funny and I’ve had good times with him, but one day he seemed in a pissed off mood and called me ugly. He would be rude to me sometimes but I’ve still maintained a good friendship with him. What’s wrong with me that guys just seem to not like me, or feel the need to be rude? Thank you in advance

Is it bad? I just never found a purpose in watching TV or having social media. Everybody asks what my favorite TV show is, etc, and I always just tell them I don't have one because I don't watch tv at all, and they just get shocked. They all say I'm secluded and stuff, but is it bad?

YOU'RE F--KING STARING AT ME A--HOLE!" then hesitated like he was going to approach him. At first that guy seemed caught up in the moment but then he says something like "Yeah! come at me!" pulls his gun then points it at my friend before we grabbed our friend and ran for our lives. We have a full description of that guy who pulled a gun along with his car license plate number. Is my friend still responsible for starting this fight even though the guy responded by pulling a gun and threatening to shoot him/us?
