    Hey guys,

    Do any of you like your friends so much as to keep contacting them every now and then and try and arrange an outing somewhere...but they never really seem to reply back (or contact you the same in return) and only talk to you when you meet them? How does this make you feel and what do you do?

    Give up and spend the time/effort actually chatting with friends that want to make the effort back.

    I hate one sided relationships, as hard as i may be try and find someone that is going to make the effort back, or at least leave the other people for awhile in the hope that they will see that they are not making the effort.

    Yeah, thing is sometimes I go overboard and try not to accept the fact too quickly that they're not trying. It seems odd that they treat you as real friends when you're with them though.

    Yup in the past.
    Soon came to the conclusion that I couldnt be bothered with people who couldnt be bothered with me though, and left it at that.

    Those who ive heard from fair enough, those who I havent- well its not much of a loss really.

    yes there is a girl I meet at work she doesnt make an effor at all. Shes really cool tho when she comes out shes so nice and lovely is just that shes not the type to txt you or send you a message via facebook. Even wen I do she ignores it most of the time lol but shes really nice so I dont take it personally lol

    I'm on the other side of the problem (as in im always the one that appears to not be making the effort with one of my mates)
    the thing is i genuinely do try and see him, but whenever he invites me out im always doing something else already. I feel so bad about it though, cos he is such a good lad and we used to be really close
