8 Signs Your Friendship Is Over

When you’ve been in a romantic relationship for a long time, it can be really difficult to realize when things need to end for good. The same goes for platonic friendships. When you’ve been comfortable with a best friend for so long, realizing that things aren’t working out anymore is tough. A friend breakup is sad and something that most people will put off for as long as possible. After all, none of us enjoy when things end.

But the hard truth is that things do end and sometimes that includes best friendships. Of course, some conflicts can and should be resolved, but sometimes friends grow apart no matter how close they once were… and that can’t always be resolved. In those cases, it’s best to end things than to keep dragging it out. Think this is happening in your life? Here are 8 signs your friendship is over.

    I live on the west coast and she lives on the east coast. We’ve been best friends since middle school. She can go months without calling. When I call her she’ll talk for a while but she’s always trying to end the call. She sent me a text to say Merry Christmas one time. A text, really. It just seems that I’m constantly having conversations regarding her not calling or what it means to be a best friend. She says she does not like talking on the phone, or she’s tired all the time. Our lives have gone in different directions. I have been blessed with some success (financial) in my life and she is struggling to make ends meet. Some times I feel she has a problem with my success. This sounds like to me the relationship is over…
