Q: Dear Danielle, lately I have been feeling left out. My best friend just recently got a boyfriend and she’s really happy with him. But lately, she’s been ignoring me for her boyfriend. She doesn’t have time to hang out with me anymore because she’s too busy hanging out with him or talking to him. It’s hard for me to go through because we have been best friends for years and we have been through so much together. I have helped her with so much and she is one of the most important people to me. I want to be happy for her and her boyfriend, but it’s hard to do that when I feel like I am losing my best friend. What should I do? -Ditched by the BFF

A: Dear Ditched by the BFF, I understand that you are going through a rough patch right now. It’s never easy when you feel like you are being replaced by your best friend, especially when you guys have been best friends for years. But if you really feel like you are being ignored and that she doesn’t have time for you anymore, then you should try talking to her. She might not even realize that she is doing it, so try talking to her about what’s making you upset. Send a simple text asking her if you guys could talk and then tell her about how you have been feeling. If she is a good friend, she will listen and understand how you feel. Eventually, things will get better and no matter what, she will always be your best friend no matter what happens. Good luck!
