We’ve all had that one ‘BFF’ that proved to be not so forever after all. Romantic heartbreaks are one thing but you can suffer from platonic heartbreak too.
I’m sure most of us have reached a point in our lives where we’ve realised our pool of friends from high school have decreased significantly. And although it might be a daunting realisation, it’s also an incredible blessing in disguise.
For the most case, losing a BFF comes with heaps of drama and some… Well, some just fade. Whatever the reason for the loss of a friendship, here are your explanations and experiences for saying bye to that BFF.

Not The Same
“We had been best friends since primary school. We went through all the awkward stages even. Up until when we all left for University and everyone had their own lives (which is fair enough) but she turned into a real druggie and always wanted to be around it. I then realised we just weren’t the same people anymore”. – Heather
The Ex BFF and Ex BF
“We were childhood best friends and pretty damn inseparable for like, 10 years. We went our separate ways for University and she ended up being in Melbourne where my newly-broken-up-with-ex was living. We were all friends so at the time I guess it was natural that they were hanging out loads. Several months down the line while I was in London, I woke up from two different messages: one from the ex BFF and one from the ex BF. I think you can guess what happened next… Haven’t spoken to either one of them since.” – Rebecca
“I Told You So”
“My mother always warned me about my BFF from high school. But I was only a young a naive girl, how was I supposed to know she was going to end up being so two-faced? I found out she had constantly been bitching about me behind my back and that she had been trying to get with the guy she knew I had a crush on at the time.” – Chloe
“This isn’t particularly dramatic but it doesn’t mean it didn’t hurt. My best friend and I were like twins and we used to do everything together. There was literally no one you would see one of us without the other. I think if anything, the both of just grew up… Nothing tore us apart we just faded apart. Don’t get me wrong, we’re still close but we both have our own lives now and theres this unspoken realisation that things are not the way it used to be.” – Olivia
