While it’s normal for friends to grow apart over the years, there are some people you’re sure will be part of your life forever. I thought that was the case with my BFF of 12 years, but all it took was a guy to tear us apart in the end.
1. AT FIRST, I WAS PSYCHED THAT SHE WAS IN LOVE, BUT THE HAPPINESS WAS SHORT-LIVED.
Like any good best friend, I was as excited as she was that she had a new boyfriend. She’d never been particularly lucky in love so when she announced she was seeing someone new that she really liked (to the point that she’d lost her virginity to him), I was psyched for her. Unfortunately, the relationship didn’t last. After three months, my friend’s new boyfriend had dumped her and was dating the girl he’d been cheating on her with.
2. I WANTED TO SUPPORT HER BUT SHE DIDN’T MAKE IT EASY.
My friend and her ex stayed “friends” after the breakup. It seemed innocent enough at first until he started booty calling her. Even though he was still with his new girlfriend, he was using my friend for sex and she didn’t care. In her mind, she thought that it would start with late night sex calls and end with her in a wedding gown. Months went by while she waited for him to leave his girlfriend for her but of course it never happened. After he broke up with that girl, he started dating someone else, and then someone new after that too. The situation was leaving my friend depressed, and it hurt to watch.
