My best friend and I made a promise that we would never let a guy mess up our friendship but that’s what is kind of happening. She’s spending a lot of time with him and it seems like she really doesn’t want to spend time with me. I don’t know how to talk to her about this. What should I do?

This sounds like a tough situation. Sometimes, in spite of the best of intentions and good feelings, friends drift apart. The truth is, people change — they find new interests and relationships that can affect many different aspects of their lives. If you’re feeling like you really miss the friendship, you might want to confront your friend and be upfront about your feelings. You can explain how you feel and ask her how she feels about the situation. It’s important to remember that any time you confront or discuss your feelings with somebody you’re taking a risk. You may feel vulnerable or may get hurt in the process, so you need to decide whether having this conversation is worth the risk. Good luck!
