best friend for years

Question Posted Monday March 28 2005, 2:25 pm

I go to a private school, and my friend did also, but then she went public. i still keep in touch with her and she is still a really great friend. But now i have this other great friend in school with me and i'm not sure wiether to think she is a better friend or not. Should i replace her? is it bad that i do not feel as close to my previous best friend?

dont worry... its not replacing your friend its just having another friend. its okay to have more than one best friend and if one gets jealous talk to them about it. good luck!

dear best friends,
have you ever heard the saying you can always have more that one best friend? its the corniest thing to say but its true. you can still keep in touch with your friend that goes to public school but your friend you made in private school can still be your bud to hang out with and tell secrets to. and your other friend doesn't always have to stay your best friend. you can replace her if you want to but its best that if you do you keep it to yourself...

hope i helped :)

just because you make a new friend doesnt mean you have to ditch the other one. you can have more than one friend!

You don't necessarily have to REPLACE her. I mean I don't believe it just having ONE best friend. I consider a lot of my friends a type of best friend to me in different ways. I mean, I know you're not close to your other friend much anymore, but just because a new person moved in doesn't mean you have to forget about her.

No its not bad that you dont feel as close to ur other friend anymore. when you go from private to public school people tend to change because there is a totally different atmosphere and the people at public schools are way different. thats also great that you have found a new friend, but that doesnt mean you have to let go of your other friend. you can be both of their friends and not have to replace someone. its also fine if you think your new friend is better or maybe she isnt, it just depends on how you feel. soo keep being both of their friends and if your new friend is better thats great because im sure your other friend has new friends at her school too!

I wouldn't say it's bad if your friend that switched school isn't as close with you anymore. I mean, you just don't see each other as often. However, I don't think you should stop being friends with her. I think you could keep in touch with her, maybe by IM, e-mail, mail, phone, or by hanging out every now and then. Because you guys don't see each other as often I think you'll both find other people you become close with, but that doesn't mean you guys should stop being friends! If you want, you can IM me anytime.

Hope I helped!

I understand where you're coming from...really, I do! My best friend and I went to a private school together, but I left in the 4th grade to go to a public school. I was very sad, but I knew that public school was better for me because I could get a better education. I'm sure that she made great friends just like I did, and I'm glad for that. Just because you guys go to different schools doesn't mean that you have to stop being friends with her because you met another good friend. You can have more than one best friend, so don't cut that other one loose just because you found a new one...would you like it if she did that to you? Also, it's ok to think that your new friend is a better friend because you talk to her more and have gotten to know her. That doesn't mean that your friend is a horrible friend. Don't cut her loose because 2 best friends are better than one. I hope I helped!

Ok i go to a private school and my friend goes to a public school. We're still REALLY good friends, we just dont see each other as much! You need someone at skool that can be a really good friend, and it's not really replacing her, because youre still friends with her!! I have some really good friends at my school, and im even better friends with some of them than her and everythings fine. At first i felt bad, but then i got over it and realized that being good friends with someone else isnt gonna hurt our friendship!! ********Hope i helped***************

WEll i think you should not dump your friend but introduce her to your other friend so that you guys can all know each other. if that does not work out then talk to both of them privately and together to see if you can fix the problem. good luck

MCalways answered Monday March 28 2005, 2:40 pm:
No its not a bad thing at all! And your not replacing your "previous" best friend, you just have another one! Who ever said that a person could only have one best friend? Maybe the 3 of you could hook up one day, and get them two to know each other! Then you'll have 2 best friends.

Try it!

Take Care!

Its not bad. Dont think of it as "replacing" her think of it as having a new friend. No matter what you'll always be friends with the other girl, and its okay to find new friends! So dont worry about it.
