[ - ] Please give me honest view: Spent e tire day today with someone I consider a close friend. She knows about something really sad and awful going on for me. She never once asked about it. All day! Bad friend? Bad with sad topics? Thoughtless? I was pretty hurt. And then I wondered if I was being silly. 30 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

maybe she thought you didn't want to talk about it, just wanted to have a nice day. maybe she was waiting for you to bring it up. maybe she feels weird about it now too, but doesn't know how to fix it. [ Reply | More ]

We were, but were at beach, so definitely had times with private talk while kids were playing. It was just kind of disappointing. Obviously not the end of the world. And I'm lucky to have other friends who DO check on me frequently. They're just mainly on west coast so it's phone and text. [ Reply | More ]

I have a friend who sucks with sad stuff. She was one of my closer friends, but when my dad died was not really there for me. It disappointed me and made me sad, but I put the friendship in a different category. Love her for who she is, but she wouldn't be in my lifeboat. [ Reply | More ]

Could have been me. I am deeply private, and my natural instinct is not to ask even close friends about personal problems because I wouldn't want anyone to ask me. But if a friend opens the door indicating they would like talk, I'm all ears and very supportive. Did you indicate in any way that you wanted/needed to talk about what was sad and awful?

Could be any of the things listed above. I recently mentioned to a friend that I was thinking about her moms health and would be glad to help any way possible, with dcs. She called me later and told me I ruined her day by bringing it up. It wasn't a big conversation, just a few sentences, no prying.
