    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.

    So I’ve been crushing on my best friend for a while and I told her recently that I had these feelings that felt more than me just loving her as a best friend. I always want to cuddle with her or just be with her and hug her and sometimes I do want to kiss her but I never want to do anything sexual. We are both straight girls and in our 20s. At first she said that she felt honored I felt this way and she loves me but now she said that feels the same way, the kind of crush feeling. We talked about how we are not gay because we don’t make out or want anything sexual besides the occasional boob grab or butt smacking. I’ve kissed her a few times only as a peck but before I admitted my feelings. We just layed together face to face and fell asleep. She always lays on me and says that she just loves me and now she thinks she likes me too. We still like boys but we both agreed that of course this is more than what normal best friends do but we’re both okay with. What is this? What does it mean?

  • How do I break off a friendship?

    Best answer: Gradually. Let longer and longer times elapse before you reply to their texts or messages; be unavailable for things they suggest; never initiate any contact. Let them get the message that you have lots of other people and happenings in your life, and while you're pleased to maybe have a coffee with them from... show more

    Let them get the message that you have lots of other people and happenings in your life, and while you're pleased to maybe have a coffee with them from time to time, you're not available the way you used to be.

    There is seldom any need to TELL someone outright.

    Sorry for the long post, I think that I am pretty nice to people, but some guys are just so rude to me, I don’t really understand why. 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

    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?

    There is this guy I work with and he's my age, 19. He has a girlfriend and I know that and respect that, also I'm not interested in him that way. His girlfriend visits his job every day. One time while I was bagging for him, his girlfriend saw so she walked over and got all lovey dovey and kissy. Her boyfriend tried to tell her that it isn't the right time for her to be all lovey dovey because he's at work so she steps away but doesn't leave him alone. So as I was bagging, there was a can that was left far away, so I said. "Jay, could you hand me that can please?" I asked, so he handed it to me, and I thanked him, his girlfriend got mad and said "Why don't you get it yourself? My boyfriend isn't your server", so I told her I was just bagging and she said "Yeah, bagging your way to try and steal my boyfriend" she threatend, I told her I only saw him as a friend and she said "No you don't, you want him for yourself, well too bad because he's mine and only mine. Go get yourself your own boyfriend, but that won't happen probably because you look like a donkey who mated with godzilla" so Jay asked her to leave and she told him, "If you want to keep dating me, you'll stop talking to donkey kong freak" and left. He apologized and said that he still wants to be friends but I don't know if we should at this point.

    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?

    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?

    Not necessarily physical abuse, but mentally abusive, too. I have two very close friends who have been talking to me for the past month about leaving their mentally abusive partners. I will not outright tell them what to do, they need to make that decision on their own. But I do tell them that I think they deserve to be treated better. The last few weeks they have both "decided to leave" their partners, so I would get a room ready for them to stay with me, only for them to decide to stay. One friend was actually broken up with and then her partner said he "made a mistake" and she went running back. I feel really bad for my friends to have to go through this, but at the same time I am getting frustrated and tired of them coming to me complaining when they aren t really doing anything about it. My question is WHY can t girls just realize they re worth so much more than this and just leave? And what can I do in my case to have them stop complaining to me? I don t want to be insensitive, but I cannot handle the round and round anymore.

    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

    Best answer: Well, unless she's a very dear friend and you honestly believe that these rumors could be false, I would just cut your losses, ignore her, block/unfriend her on social media, and move on with your life.

    Now ... if she's ALWAYS been a good, honest friend to you, and you truly cannot believe that she'd ever say such a thing, then you can approach her and gently say, "Sara, some people have told me that you said XYZ about me. We've been friends a long time and you've always treated me nicely, so I wanted to confirm with you that these are just ugly rumors."

    However, there's almost no chance in hell that this girl would ever fess up to talking shiiiiit about you behind your back if she's actually done it. So confronting her over this would really do no good.

    So either completely cut ties with her and completely move on ... or take a chance that it's all false and move forward. At MOST you can say something like, "Louisa just told me that you said XYZ about me. Isn't that funny? I know you'd never say something so cruel about me" and then see where it goes, but that's sort of passive-aggressive. And, again,k if she actually DID say that about you, she's not going to confess. Things are going to be awkward between you and/or she's just going to ramp up the shiiiit-talking.

    Unless you are 100% confident that these are just ugly, untrue rumors, I would just cut ties and move on without the friendship.

    If you ARE 100% confident that she'd never do such a thing, then ignore it and move on with the friendship.

    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!

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?
