Hey M Girls!
We have a BRAND NEW spin on the daily advice column on mmm-mag.com. Each day at 8:00 PM/EST we'll post a reader question and have our M Girl answer it!! Today, we're talking how to mend a friendship -- when it's suddenly awkward!
M Reader ChewyLuvsU asked:
One of my only best guy friends and I started going out -- and then all of a sudden, he broke up with me. And we haven't talked since. I'm kind of upset because we used to be really good friends. I'm not mad at all about the break-up so I don't get why we're not speaking. What can I do so we can start hanging out or just talking again?
And M Girl's answer is:
"He's definitely just worried that since you crossed the friendship line and started dating, you may not know how to go back to being friends -- without it being awkward! He probably thinks that you feel awkward while you think that he feels awkward -- it's just one big awkward misunderstanding! Just talk to him about it. Tell him that you're not upset at the break-up, but that you're just missing him as your BFF. Suggest going out for ice cream sometime or organize a group hangout to the movies with your pals! Once one of you breaks the ice and starts acting like their normal self, the friendship will just fall back into place like you wanted it to. Go for it and be honest with him! He'll really appreciate you taking the step to fix your relationship. After all, he cares about it as much as you do!"
