I told my friend I was buying an expensive item I had always wanted. Since I had saved for this item, it wasn't going to be a problem for me. She then said she needed one, too, and that she would pay me back..
About six months ago, my BFF of 10 years, Penny, confided that she was having an affair with our mutual close friend, Amy's, husband. Our families are all friends and her burdening me with this information was extremely difficult for me.
I have been friends with someone for over twenty years. She's remarried to a guy, whom I don't think likes my husband or me. We use to be invited to her Christmas party every year. NO more. Last time I was there, she made sure I was not there when he came home, and our time was limited because she was going to a party with his friends.
With a little bit of moxie, my friend and colleague, Laura E. Kelly, used technology to overcome the feelings of estrangement from neighbors that are so typical today. Laura agreed to write her story here to inspire others who want to get to know their neighbors.
I'm 37 years old but when I was 18, my best friend and I met this friendly guy whom we both liked, but he liked me more. He and I kept our relationship quiet for a while but at a party, my best friend saw us together.
About two years ago I had so many friends that it was great. I was at my last job. But then, hundreds of us got laid off/fired. Only a handful of folks kept their jobs. It was a wonderful company and I miss seeing my friends each day.
I really cared a lot about someone whom I dated. After the end of our dating relationship three years ago, I was devastated. However, I was very willing to be his friend. For the last two years, I was doing all of the hard work and effort to maintain this friendship.
I've recently been coming to terms with some deeply buried grief, and also struggling with self-injury problems as well. My "best friend" of 19 years has hardly been there for me and only seems to come around when he needs me.
I have a friend with whom I haven't really been in contact with for about nine months. My husband heard her husband say some really nasty things about her. Their marriage was already having some issues and she led us to believe that she was getting ready to leave him. So my husband thought she should know what her husband was saying behind her back.
