With life being more mobile than ever before, we’re less likely to know our neighbors—missing out on a fertile and convenient source of friendships.
One of my best friends has changed dramatically in the past year and it’s making me question our friendship.
I have a girlfriend who, over the past couple of years, has begun making subtle and insidious personal attacks on me. She is very sneaky and calculating to me but acts “sweet” to everyone else in our group.
A friendship on life support may have only a slim chance of survival, especially if the friendship doesn’t have a solid foundation or long history.
Each of my women friends has — or had — good qualities, but ultimately, the positive didn’t outweigh the negative. Is my laziness in trying to make new (better, more compatible) friends an aging thing?
