Tell Me About It
Dear Carolyn: My best friend, Gail, and I have grown apart the past few years. Its no ones fault, we just dont have anything in common anymore. Shes a stay-at-home mom with two kids under 4, and is busy with all of the things that come with that. Im single, dating a couple of guys casually, very busy and engaged with my career.
Five years ago we couldnt be separated, we worked in the same building, roomed together and socialized together. These days, we might catch up a few times a year. We really try to get together but even picking a night when were both free to go to a movie is a nightmare, but we managed one last weekend.
At dinner, Gail broke down crying saying that I dont care about her, dont make time for her anymore, never go to their house.
