Hello Kitty first appeared on Japanese kids' stationery in the '70s, but she's pawed her way to fame among Hollywood celebs with a line that includes everything from pajamas to bubble gum! Get the goods on everyone's favorite kitten, Hello Kitty!

Hello Kitty - The Man Behind the Cat

Sanrio is a Japanese company that's famous for its cute and adorable cartoon characters like Cinnamoroll and Keroppi - but Hello Kitty is the most popular and successful. She was created by designer Ikuko Shimizu in 1974, and named after one of Alice's cats in the book, Through the Looking Glass, by Lewis Carroll. Since British culture was popular with Japanese girls at the time of Hello Kitty's creation, she was made into an English cat!

So i  agree with miley15 i think you guys should all meet up and tell them they can't leave or interrupt each other untill the issue is resolved let girl 2 know that the more she askes the less girl 1 will want to be her friend , also tell girl 1 that she shouldn't just run away.  Girl 1 is trying to be friends with girl2 but  i mean they dont need to bff's but they should not make a big deal of each other.

My parents are very lenient about chores and messing around but they are NOT lenient at all about lying, respect, homework or safety stuff.

ahaaaa...that's sorta confusing and annoying at the same time...but don't u think if they were really your friends they would listen to u? if they are really interested in being friend with u so tell em that u cannot stand this situation anymore and ask them politely but firmly to try to understand each other...or ur friendship will be ruined...i'm sure talking always solves any problems...

Ok here's what's going on. Girl1 (my best friend) can't stand girl2 (my other friend). And girl2 wants to be friends with girl1 but girl1 doesn't want to be friends with girl2. And girl2 keeps messaging girl1 and girl1 keeps telling her she doesn't want to be her friend. got you confused yet?  So this is what is making me write this. My best friend said that if I keep hanging around my other friend she will try to be nice. But every time those two are in the same place girl2 asks girl1 why they can't be friends and that just sets girl1 off. And then I have to stop it. I love how my best friend is willing to hang around my other friend for me but I hate how my other friend won't stop bringing up why the two of them can't be friends. No matter how much girl1 and I tell her that girl1 doesn't want to be her friend she keeps asking. I like hanging out with both of them but not at the same time and when I hang out with one and not the other they ask why and I spending more time with the other one then with them. I can't take it anymore!!!  Please help me me before I loose it,              avatar-me
