Been having issues with a close friend for a while now, and keep being the one to apologise and make contact. Another of her close friends has also decided to see her as more of an acquaintice than friend. I just keep thinking is it worth keeping crappy friends just so you have some? We are a group of friends, so if I distance myself from her it will affect the rest of the group. I am leaving my home town in a few weeks and will have 3 of the group at my leaving do. Just feel like what is the point, is her birthday soon and I spoke to her and said i'm not sure it's a good idea to go. We are just very different in a lot of ways and as I've got older I've realised it more. But if I don't go then she will give 'her version' to the group and I'll look like the bad guy for not going. Maybe I expect too much, but I think that friends should check how you are every now and then, suggest meeting up etc. Currently there are only 2 people I can think of that do that. Feel like with most people it is always me making the contact and trying to organise meets. Part of me thinks I should just move and forget the people here. But then I won't even have aquaintances let alone friends, except for my one friend who lives near where I'm moving to. So when is a friend not a friend and should you ever just cut people out and risk being a friendless wonder?!
