I am sorry sweetie, we sometimes grow apart from friends like a couple would. I had the same thing happen to me but it was more of jealousy. 

Ending that friendship was for the best and I dont regret it. I would love to go visit you in NY haha I have wanted to go there my whole life. 

Keep your chin up, its not worth it.

Sorry that this happened! It’s never easy to end a friendship, even if the friendship is basically over already.

I had a friend like this in high school. However, she wasn’t overweight. She was homeschooled and a little socially awkward. We were still really good friends up until the point where I tried to get back together with my ex over two years ago. She didn’t like him and wasn’t supportive. When I realized he hadn’t changed and realized I was making a poor decision, my current SO came into my life. She stopped talking to me because I was “flaunting” my relationship since she had never had a boyfriend. Now she is married and likes to flaunt that she got married before I did even though my SO and I have been together for a lot longer than her and her husband. It sucks that our friendship had to end the way it did, but I realized who my true friends were. Keep your chin up. It will get easier.

my best friend is my DH. No one else. I got tired of giving people that title and then being utterly disappointed.

Ending a friendship is hard….sorry you have to go thru this time, but look at this way you’re in a better more positive place in your life then she is so good for you for dumping out the negativity in your life!

Honestly, it sounds like the friendship has been over for a long time. You can’t expect people to stay the same as they were in high school, or even really that they owe you some loyalty when you have nothing in common now because were so kind as to lower yourself to be their friend in high school.

I think you should both cut your losses and move on.

I feel for you, I just ended a friendship of 16 years.  It hurts but in the end it’s for the best.  Sometimes you do everything in your power and it’s just not enough.  You will pull through.  Good luck!

I had a friend breakup about 1 1/2 yrs ago. It is hard, but the reality is people grow apart. Not everyone, but some do. Honestly, the sooner you come to grips with the fact that you are two different people now, the easier it will be to move on from her, and find yourself a new best friend. It took me about a year to realize we will never be friends again, and I am now only starting to allow new meaningful friendships to bloom.

I just ended a friendship of 20 years. Or maybe its just a break. I dunno. But I do know that it had to happen. I realized that more and more we were friends simply because we had known each other so long and had always been constants in each others lives, but I didn’t like who she was and I just couldn’t handle it anymore. It was like having an extra sister that you just don’t like but you tolerate because she is your sister and you love her. I still love my friend and would never wish anything bad on her but I can’t have her in my life anymore. It got to the point where I would dread any time we spent together because she was just so selfish and over all just not a good friend or person for that matter. It always hurts even if its a smart move for you to make. It sounds like that friendship ran its course for you and thats ok. Treasure the friendship you had and how it made your life better but also accept that sometimes relationships end and its just how it has to be. Im sorry you are dealing with this though, it always sucks no matter the circumstances.

It’s always hard when you know someone that the potential to be an awesome person and they decide to be a doucher.

Very sorry, It happens to the best of us.

I think these things happen when people hold on to relationships that clealy run their course. People grow up and change some for the better and some for the worst, and sometimes they no longer keep the same group of friends. While it’s sad, it’s also life.

I think had the relationship been let go when she stop showing interest it could have avoided a lot of drama and more hurt feelings.
