Letter To My Ex-Best Friend

Dear Ex-Best Friend,

The fact that I am addressing this with ‘ex’ actually really upsets me because even though we haven’t seen each other in over two years, I still class you as my best friend. I don’t understand what happened, when did this ‘ex’ suddenly appear in our friendship title?

Ever since school, we were inseparable! It didn’t matter where we were going or who we were going with, we would still go as a pair. You my plus one to every party that I was invited to. You were the first person I would ring when I had the slightest bit of gossip and you were the person who was there for me no matter what. I don’t understand why I’m writing this in the past tense because I still message you when I have some gossip but now it seems to be when I have ‘big’ news and not just a little gossip.

We used to spend every Friday night together in your flat, take a trip to the big 24hr Asda and purchase a cheap packet of Asda’s rip off version of Doritos and dip and the cheapest bottle of wine we could find. Stay up until the very early hours of the morning watching soppy movies on Netflix and bitch about almost every person that we didn’t get along with. Most the time, that Friday night would then drag out to a Saturday night as well! All of a sudden, every Friday night then turned into every other Friday night, which later turned into one Friday night a moth, which then turned into seeing each other on special occasions, which later turned into not seeing each other at all!

It didn’t matter what boy I would talk to, you always found a way to stalk him on Facebook and find out every little piece of detail possible to see if he really was legit and worth it. You stopped me from dating a lot of guys that turned out to be dicks, you always knew when I shouldn’t be around someone and you had the instinct to know whether or not somebody was worth your time and day.

It doesn’t matter if we no longer spend our weekends getting drunk in your living room with cheap bottle of wine. It doesn’t matter if we don’t spend our weekends eating take-away pizza. Just know that I will always like your Instagram photos, I will always watch your snapchat stories, I will always be a phone call away if you need anything and I will always and I mean always think of you as the greatest friend a girl could asked for!

Much love,

    Awww this is kind of sad. How come you guys grew apart? It sounds like you guys had a lot of fun together.

    Losing a friend is always sad, especially if it’s a best friend. I’ve learned that sometimes people come and go out of your life. I, like you, will always hold a special place for those who meant a lot to me at one point or another in my past. You never know, an ex-best friend might become your best friend again. It happened to me!

    Aww Abigail this is really sweet. I have so many friends that unfortunately I’ve grown apart from too. Sounds like you’re willing to keep the friendship alive though. Send her this!

    This is something I went through coming out of University. Many of the friends I considered to be so important there during that time I don’t even talk to hardly anymore… its always sad to see a friendship grow apart in that way.

    Ahhh this really moved me, because I completely relate. This has happened to me and it really does hurt. It’s so hard to get your head around losing someone who you were once so close to. All I can say is, i guess everything happens for a reason!

    It’s so hard when this happens. It’s happened to me a few times.

    I also have friendships that have waxed and waned over the years. Sometimes that happens as your life gets more and more full, if that makes sense. I hope you reconnect.
