Sorry that your friend might be bailing out on you. However, how old are you? You said something about women your age….

ummm if that’s what you call a best friend then that is sad! My best friend would walk over hot coals to be there for me and I would do the same for her.

I think people use that term so loosily now…

Im sorry that she is acting this way and I hope you can enjoy your shower even if she is not there!

If you guys have drifted and haven’t really hung out much in years, i’m not surprised that this is happening. Put your energy towards people who are more actively in your lives.

@MarryMeTiffany:

You’re not alone in this. My three closest friends? Not one is coming to my wedding, little-lone even mentioned anything about my wedding.  They are more conerned with partying and such.  Ever since I moved to the ‘burbs and settled down we’ve been growing apart but the wedding made it more so.

And these girls 29, 30 and 30 something. It’s not like they’re kids!

You have to let it go and like Crayfish suggested, focus more on the people who are in the here and now.l

One of my “best” friends is really disappointing me right now, too. I’m sorry she’s not being there for you. The best thing you can do is focus on those who care enough to make the effort and let them know how much you appreciate it. Be careful not to insult the people who do show up by bitching too much about so-and-so not being there. I’m not saying you would . . . I just know I’m going to have to make a really conscious effort not to do this myself.

In the same boat with one of my friends. I’m sorry you are going through this. 🙁 I agree that focusing on people who are there for you right now will help get you through this, and be happier in the process.

@MarryMeTiffany: First off, I’m sorry that this is happening. I’m 29 and I honestly can’t say I have a ‘best friend’. Although I have about two girl friends that I know I can depend on more than others.

I’ve found that there’s always little cliques throughout our life. The single, party group, the serious relationship group and the married/ or i have kids now group and thats part of the reason people drift. Not saying it’s a good excuse.

Definitely focus on the people who do take the time out for you instead of the negative stuff out there. Those ‘friends’ are missing out on a great person I bet. 🙂
