My friend just moved here during the summer, and ever since then we've been really good friends. I feel like I can tell her anything and talk about anything. I think we hit Best Friend Status, but I really don't know because she's always talking about her best friend where she used to live and tells me all these stories about her. Not to be mean but---I really don't care.
What am I supposed to say? I feel like if I tell her how I feel she'll turn to her other best friend, because maybe she'll think, "Oh, I don't need her, I have my best friend from back home." Aside from that problem, I love our friendship right now and I don't want to do or say anything that will break it apart. So please, advise?
It may be hard-and even a little boring- to hear your friend talk about her other best friend and all they did together. But listening is part of being a good friend. Think about it: If your friend were to move, how would you feel if she stopped talking to you, thinking about you, and being your friend? The fact that she's still in touch with her friend from her old town shows that she's a good friend. My guess is if she is a good friend to her, she will be a good friend to you.
