Hi all, I know it's tricky when people don't know the ins and outs of a situation but my question is more about what I do next, if anything.
I've known my friend for 30 years, we met when our sons were aged 1 and 3, we've seen each other through bereavements, divorce, breakups, child illnesses, some of them extremely serious. Through a house swap we ended up living in the same street, almost opposite each other twelve years ago.
3 years ago, she reconnected with an old flame, I've met him, we get on really well and there is no envy or jealous feelings on my part. I have however noticed the communication between us dwindling to the point where it was me making the moves first. I wasn't invited to her birthday evening out last year, first time ever probably.
My question is this...... should I make one more attempt to bridge the divide or just accept is as the way things are from now on. I came out of my house yesterday and just made me really sad as she was out the front so I just quickly got in car and drove off, I felt so awkward!!
I just feel too old for all of this at 60. Thanks in advance for advice and replies.
