I'm not the type of person to rely heavily on friends because frankly, I've yet to find a friend who stays by your side no matter what. People are selfish. It's a sad fact. Your BFF is being somewhat of a douche though...if she knew the person whose funeral she is attending and would actually care about the funeral itself, it would be another matter entirely. But as I said, people are selfish. You should try and make the best out of your birthday by yourself. Learning how to cope with situations like this will be worth a lot when you get older. Also, learn to shrug this stuff off. Don't vent it, don't think about it, don't mull on it. Just shrug it off and do something nice for yourself.
Regarding your friend, you should tell her how you feel to her face. If she can't handle it, she is not a real friend. Chasing some guy to a funeral is rather sketchy in itself. I wouldn't be angry about ditching me on my birthday but if my friend attended a funeral just to hit on a guy...ehh...not quite the type of person I'd hang around with.
eh, some friends are like that can some friends won't be.....the only way to really know is to call her retard fatass....if she's laughs then she's your real friend. If she doesn't well then I think you need some more considerate friends.
It's a fucking funeral for fuck's sake. She wants to emotionally support the guy she likes. You'll have another birthday next year, so grow up and get over yourself, or you'll find that nobody will want to spend your birthday or any other day with you.
So, she's going to blow you off after she suggested she'll spend time with you to go to a stranger's funeral in an attempt to butter up to a guy who doesn't even know her? Wow... Why would you bother with her? Also, wait until your 21. It's more fun.
I'm not sure how I'd feel about it. I mean, I only have your word that she went to the funeral, not to grieve, but to see a guy that she liked many years ago If she's going to the funeral for genuine purposes, then there's nothing to be upset about. You can't really predict things like that. Funerals take precedence over birthdays.
Buuuuut, if she really is going to flirt with some guy... well, she's a saucy tart
If I'm angry with my friend, I tell her to her face. We get pissed at each other for ten minutes and move on. I always thought friendship was about saying stupid things without having to pay for it later.
How much you want to bet she won't even mention this thread to her friend?
All this disloyalty behind their back conveniently omitted just to not reveal how much of a distrusting jerk they are. See, a sensible person would cut the bullshit and get right to the point. But then again, since when were children ever "sensible"?
But only because I wanted to get rid of her once and for all, and she took the bait hook, line and sinker. It's good that Complaints unwittingly helped me get rid of a total lunatic with Borderline Personality Disorder. Now THAT was a bad friend!
You guys are at an age when you're both selfish. Understandably, you are upset because it is your eighteenth birthday and you didn't have your best friend to spend it with. However, it is just your birthday. When you get older, you'll care less and less about it. And friendship shouldn't be tested over something like abandonment for one day out of the whole year. When times get really tough and your friend is there, that is true friendship.
Besides, your eighteenth birthday won't seem like anything once you reach your twenty first
She sounds like a crazy bitch. Have a fun birthday without her and forget about her. When you see her again, gently remind her that she's a nutbar for using a dead man to try and stalk someone she thinks is cute.
Omg yes your entirely right. Because I want nothing more than my perfect birthday of myself and one other person watching tv for an hour. Your right. And of course I would kill everyone on this earth so that I could have a fairy tale day that's all sparkly and rainbows and perfectness.
I'm just a little pissy that my best friend would pick the funeral of someone she's never met in her entire life over me. I'm so sorry if that makes me a terrible person.
