Dear Dish-It, We Used to Be Friends, Now She's Mean

Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".

Dear Dish-It,

Hi, I was wondering if you could help me. I used to be very good friends with this girl, but now she is all mean to me because she has better and more "popular" friends. Does she hate me or is she just pretending?

Dear Gurlprincess21,

Sorry to hear about your lost friend, but try not to take it personally. Some people just grow apart as they grow up. I doubt that she hates you, even though she is being mean and totally uncool. As for the "popular" thing: popularity isn't everything and people who think it is are the real losers. Give it time and maybe you guys will reconnect. If not, don't lose sleep over it cuz someone who is mean to you and doesn't treat you well isn't worth your time and effort. Remember that your friendship is valuable even if she doesn't get it.

So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

Calm down. Ignore her. You are YOU, don't let anyone change you. If someone hurts, cry a river and build a bridge over it cx

Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?
