You need to ignore that stuff. Just let it roll off your back. well-meaning friends sometimes cause unneeded tension when they get a member of a relationship “to thinking” about things that were not a problem before.

As far as drifting from single friends….that happens. As a single friend who had to cope with my friends marrying before me, I did the drifting. I saw how awkward it was for me when the husbands suddenly became apart of the best friendship. I mean to the point of he won’t even let us have a conversation by ourselves….and I didn’t like him commenting on my business when I didn’t tell it to him. I know peope in relationships talk about their friends, but I thought it was an unwritten code that the man in the relationship is supposed to act like the best friend never told him anything. This man, no. He would talk about my business as if I’d told him myself. I did not like that at all.

anyways, I’d just tell the friend that you’ve both been busy. Obviously, you both have. Meet up with her, but if she makes you uncomfortable with certain talk, just cut that talk off. like with the living together thing, I would have said, “We’re happy with things as they are.” and I would have said it in a “conversation over” type voice and change the subject.

You might have to do that a few times and she’ll understand that she can tell you what she thinks, but a federal case will not be made.

I have a similar friend…She is 5 years older then me..and still single..she constantly complaints about her life and that she is single…And I feel that she is constantly questioning my relationships with fiance…anyways, it feels to me that she is jelouse and I started avoiding her…I don’t need any bad energy around at this happy moment of my life 🙂
