I met — what I thought to be was the man of my dreams — a few months ago and though things have been amazing, my best friend and I have completely fallen out. I don’t really know why, and when I try to think back to how things happened initially, I guess I had a little to do with it. I met this guy and thought he was really great, and immediately started spending most of my time with him. Nights. Weekends. Even days off and we’ve just grown so close. When I would call my BFF to talk about him, she really seemed like she was happy for me. I will admit, for the first two months, I canceled a lot of plans with her. Things that I would usually do with her — I did with him. But anyone can understand that, right? I mean… It was new, it was fresh.
She — on the other hand felt like I totally abandoned her for something that was temporary. It was the first time in a long time that I had this much attention from a guy, and I was really just trying to make the best of it. Was she wrong not to understand, or was I wrong for not trying to manage the friendship better? I mean — in honesty, she would be there if he wasn’t… but she can’t satisfy my needs, build a future (romantically) with me or make kids with me? I mean, I just really want to know who’s overreacting. Me or her?
