My best friend won’t talk to me

When a friend won’t talk and cuts off conversation, there isn’t much you can do but wait it out.

QUESTION

Hi,

My best friend hasn’t spoken to me for two days now, ever since I got back from my family vacation. I have been freaking out and texting her and calling her, and I’m one panic attack away from showing up at her doorstep.

My other best friend who is part of our trio has talked to her about this and she says that she isn’t mad at me, but there is something going on. She won’t answer me directly, but is telling the other best friend that there is nothing against me.

Also, she sent a text on the Friday night I got back asking to call me, which didn’t deliver to me until yesterday night. I then told her that the text didn’t deliver to me until that time, and she still hasn’t answered. What should I do?

Signed, Rhianne

ANSWER

Dear Rhianna,

Sit tight. If you are used to speaking to your best friend all the time, something is definitely up if she won’t respond to your texts. But you have done all you can do and now the ball is in her court.

Do not show up on her doorstep. Give her a week or so and see if she comes around. Something must be going on but it doesn’t necessarily have to do with you.

In the meantime, try to keep your mind off this by spending time with your family and other friends. I suspect that she will get in touch with you by the time you read this blog post and you’ll have some explanation.

Best, Irene

    Hi,
    My best friend and I were really close but we went to different high schools. During freshmen year I was really stupid and thought I couldn’t be friends with her so I started to distance myself and tell her I was busy. A year later I realize how stupid that was because she’s my best friend and I want her back. I’ve tried arranging hang outs but she says she’s busy. She has a new best friend that kinda looks like me and when I asked who she was my friend said “my bestie kate”. I don’t know what to do and I can’t give up on her. Please help me.

    Hi I’m Lindsay

    Me and my friend go to the same after school and we hang out all the time. I’ve known her since kindergarten. We always hang out but when I get home and try to text her or FaceTime her she never answers and when she does she always says oh I’m busy sorry I can’t talk or I’m at my friends house I can’t talk. I don’t know why she does this but I don’t like it. I didn’t do anything to her I have always answered her. What should I do to make her talk to me more?

    My friend is angry I don’t even know the reason she’s not been talking properly she is just trying to tell me nothing and stuff ! If I ask for help she’ll tell me take it from other friends ! I tried asking her many times but she says everything is okay ! She’s not being Normal these days and I don’t even know what I’ve done if I ask her that she’ll get angry !! What should I do coz I’m too attached to her

    If you two were best friends and now she wont talk to you anymore….she is not your best friend anymore….Tell her to F%&*$ her self and you just go find other friends to hang out and move on with your life….

    Hello,
    Last year as i went to high school i made new friends, one of them was a girl, and we called each other best friends and we really had a great time together. But after 7 months we fought because of another girl and some other times i used to get jealous of the other girl. And once i didnt speak to her for some hours but then i texted her just as normally. But the other day she didnt speak to me and this lasted for some days. After this i texted her apologizing. But she told me she couldnt go on having a friend that would get jealous for little unnecessary things and we ended up our friendship. I know ive done my mistakes and she probably has not done bad to me. But it has been 1 year since we havent spoken or seen each other, because ive changed school. I really miss her. I really dodnt want to lose her. I have always wanted to text her but i dont know what she would say. I really dont know. I just miss her. Pls tell me what should i do? 🙁 plsss i need your advice
