My best friend of 11 years has gone distant Watch

    I've known my best friend since year 7 and we graduated over a year ago.

    We used to hang out and talk all the time but ever since he graduated he has not bothered making an effort to talk to me. He only talks to me during Christmas or when it's our birthdays and it's all small talk. I do talk to him but he doesn't seem like he wants to talk to me at all, our conversations are dead now and when I ask him if he wants to hang out he's always busy.

    Our friendship is not the same anymore and he's my only true friend. I get so upset because I have no other proper friends and the fact that our 11 year friendship has come to this is so sad.

    What can i do?

    I mean you can ask if something has changed but most likely he has just moved on, as you transition to different schools unis jobs it's just something that happens, you become closer with people you see daily than friends you link with a couple times a month. Don't really think there is much you can do but you gotta remember it's not your fault it's just something that happens

    I now have no true friends and I am a person who has difficulty making new friends. Please can you advise on where I can meet new people?
