To sum it up...My friend and I have known each other for 23 years. 2 years ago, she met a new friend, no biggie, we both have other friends. But! She has fallen off the radar 100%, I tried for 4-5 months to call, stop by, etc. as usual. We've always seen each other 3x a month, talked on average 2x a week, got our nails done, had family dinners, went shopping together. Now, she is always gone, never available, never home (ALWAYS out with her 'new' friend....everyday!) and won't answer her phone. Yes, I was truly dumped, it seems. We're going on a year, and I haven't seen or talked to her...it's always the 'new' friend now....all the things we used to do, she does with the 'new' friend. I hear it through the family grapevine, hehee. I am not hung up on it, but I wander in between missing her, being too proud to TRY 'one more time' getting in touch, being mad, being sad...... Question is...if she comes back around in the future, should I take her back? Or her having cut the cord, keep it cut? I can't decide which is the more healthy choice for me. It's an emotional/mental pickle.
