As a BFF my first reaction is....what Koolaid is this guy giving her that would turn her away from me?
My friends and I from high school ebb and flow with our lives, but none of us have ever pulled away so dramatically that we are uncomfortable with each other.
I would be more concerned that she is trying so hard to be with this guy, that she is forgetting the really important parts. It sounds like to me that she has changed who she is to fit in with this younger guy, rather then to be accepted by the guy as an older woman.
Either way, she has sacrificed her friendship and maturiety for it.
Is it me? Am I just jealous of her new love, her weightloss/physical fitness (I am the heaviest I have ever been despite no diet change or reduction in excercise), her moving on to a new life?
Maybe, but i doubt it. Other then the healthy weightloss part, what part of her life are you really that jealous off?
If you start to lose weight JUST to be friends with her, then you are really in no better shape then she is doing all that she's doing to fit in with her boyfriends crowd.
I really do not know. And I feel like I should just tell her how I feel but part of me wonders if this is just a phase that I need to ride out?
Would you want to be there when this new relationship comes to an end? Keep tabs on her, say hi every once in a while, but dont set your watch by her.
When you invite her, don't expect her to show up....but you never know if you really want to stay friends, just chill....see what happens.
