Friends sullen attitude

Jul 25, 2018 15 Comments

I'd be really curious to hear input from women on this.

I have a friend of mine that seems in general more sullen attitude around me. She used to be rather bubbly and ask me all types of questions and be very engaging in conversation. Should oftentimes would tease me and I would do the same to her. We would talk and exchange ideas for an hour or so and I would describe the conversations as good. There was a while there she would even ask me about my workout routine and what I'll be working out tonight. She would sometimes send me random texts about funny things or weird things that she has seen or done. I'm beginning to think that I was too stupid to realize that may be she wanted more than friendship and since I've never taken it beyond friendship now it seems like I've lost a friend :-(

Anyone ever encounter this?

Any thoughts on how I can get my friend back to the way she was before? She used to be so energetic and so engaging in conversation :-(

Do you think I should be upfront with her and ask her if everything is okay? I would be curious to hear what women have to say about that.

At least so far she has not refused to hang out with me. We see each other almost everyday. So maybe there's hope that I can get my friend back to her old ways.

    Move on. She lost interest on you or seeing someone else.

      Yeah I guess so. I really thought we had a decent friendship.

      Sorry, whom am I to give advice. Give two more shots and see something happens.

    Just straight up asking her if she’s been feeling ok lately would be the best solution instead of having a bunch of strangers speculate :)

      Yes I agree with this, ask her. If she's your friend then you should.

    How have you *not* asked if everything is ok if you're such good friends ??

      That's very true. She comes off as very private. I don't want her to feel like I'm trying to invade her privacy. I guess maybe I shouldn't worry about that and if she didn't want to tell me something she'll just dance around it.

      Yeah she totally would always ask me for my net worth in a teasing way. But then eventually she just stopped :-(

    Well, do you romantically like her or not? If not, she must have sensed that and has now withdrawn because it's the healthiest thing to do. For her. I would do the same if i were her, it's easier to move on to someone else who would reciprocate her feelings. You did not lose a friend, you just lost her full attention. She's saving that for someone else.

      Always viewed her as a friend...until now this is making me wonder about that. Maybe she wanted more and I was too dumb to see that? Oh man and in the process now I lost a friend it seems. I guess I must like her as I want her attention and I miss our banter :-(
