- Wedding: December 2013
I have two best friends. One best friend I have had a longggggg time. however, ever since i dated my boyfriend, let alone got engaged-her reaction has been of total denial. Whether posting pictures on my facebook wall of us in the past, or NEVER asking about him/the wedding/bringing him up, I have gotten no love. I know it’s silly, but I had always imagined a best friend would jump for joy with me, comment on all my pictures, contake my future husband and gush. Instead-i got nothing. I have been best friends with her for YEARS everyone knows us as the best friend duo, yet I admit, as the years have gone on we get less close however maintain our best friend status because of our love. Still, it’s painful to see so many people, friends, family reach out and congratulate me, or ask to hear about my new life (having in laws, planning a wedding, moving in) and she has done none of that. I know it’s cause she is sad-it’s a loss for her, no more single fun clubbing best friend! However i get angry that she isn’t happy for me that i will marry a man who treats me so well and that i love, that i am moving on to a new phase of my life!
I have another best friend who i love deeply and who is so happy and supportive of me. We have been friends so much less time, however I wish i could give her the Maid/Matron of Honor title. I havent asked either although the first one (the one that isnt so excited) adn i have always known we’d be each others maids of honors, so she would be in shock if i picked my second best friend.
anyways has anyone experienced their best freinds being totally in denial/not happy for you?
if i chose the second best friend (i think i will) how would i tell the first one who i have been friends with FOREVER that she is not my MOH?
xoxo thank you for your time
