12 Signs Your Friend Doesn’t Want To Be Friends Anymore

One of the hardest truths to accept as you get older is that not all friendships last forever. In fact, most of them don’t. If you’re lucky, you’ll have one, two, or maybe a handful of close friends that stick by your side until the very end. But for the most part, you’ll unfortunately find that a lot of friendships start strong, then fizzle out slowly, whether it’s because of a fight or other circumstances you don’t really have any control over. Sometimes, it’s your friend slowly pushing you away, other times you’re the one doing it, and sometimes it’s a mutual thing that just happens.

I’ve experienced all of those situations. I’ve been the friend who pushes another friend away because I don’t want them in my life anymore (that’s happening right now, actually). I’ve been the friend who’s being pushed away while I’m like, “what did I do wrong?” And I’ve lost contact with a lot of friends simply because we’re both super busy and just don’t have time anymore.

Whatever’s going on, it kind of sucks. But it REALLY sucks when you aren’t ready for your friendship to be over and your friend clearly is. How do you know if that’s the case? Here are 12 signs your friend doesn’t want to be friends anymore, from someone who knows:

Which of these things do you identify with? Is this happening to you right now? What did I forget to include? Tell me in the comments.

    My views of life and my interests had made me have a few friends and I only have one best friend that keeps pushing me away. I mean I was the one that was there for you when you nearly had a panic attack! I was the one you were planning to go to New York with! And last night at homecoming she totally ignored me even though she made me to come! I am so sick of the phrase: “Kill them with kindness.” If you don’t want to be friends with me just tell me!
