Awkward friend? Please help! watch

    So me and my friend (let’s call her Sarah) have been best friends since year 7 (I’m in year 10) and we are in a group of 4 but recently me and another friend in my group have found that it’s really hard to have a conversation with ‘Sarah’ and nothing flows naturally and we find that we always struggle to get a conversation flowing with her. It always just feels a bit forced and I feel like we don’t have that much in common anymore? I’m not gonna ‘break up’ with her bc I don’t want to as we still get along really well but I just can never get a conversation flowing. What should I do? Or what type of things can I talk about with her?

    Have you considered maybe she's having problems of her own? Perhaps ask her if she is alright.

    Check in with her - see if there's anything happening with her that she might want to talk to you about. If you think you don't have much in common, try doing something new together as a 4. She might be picking up on any vibes you or your friends might be giving off without realising because you're struggling to get a chat going with her.
    Chat to 'Sarah' - most things improve with a chat. At the end of the day you don't want to loose her as a friend and if you start with that when you talk to her it will reassure her that you're only trying to better your relationship
