Dear Ex-Best Friend,
The fact that I am addressing this with ‘ex’ actually really upsets me. Even though we haven’t seen each other in over two years, I still class you as my best friend. I don’t understand what happened, when did this ‘ex’ suddenly appear in our friendship title?
Ever since school, we were inseparable! It didn’t matter where we were going or who we were going with, we would still go as a pair. You were my plus one to every party that I was invited to. You were the first person I would ring when I had the slightest bit of gossip and you were the person who was there for me no matter what. I don’t understand why I’m writing this in the past tense. I still message you when I have some gossip. But now it seems to be when I have ‘big’ news and not just a little gossip.
We used to spend every Friday night together in your flat. Take trips to the big 24hr Asda and purchase a cheap packet of Asda’s rip off version of Doritos and dip and the cheapest bottle of wine we could find. Stay up until the very early hours of the morning watching soppy movies on Netflix. Bitch about almost every person that we didn’t get along with. Most the time, that Friday night would then drag out to a Saturday night as well! All of a sudden, every Friday night then turned into every other Friday night. Which later turned into one Friday night a month. That later turned into seeing each other on special occasions. Eventually it turned into not seeing each other at all!
It didn’t matter what boy I would talk to, you always found a way to stalk him on Facebook and find out every little piece of detail possible to see if he really was legit and worth it. You stopped me from dating a lot of guys that turned out to be dicks. You always knew when I shouldn’t be around someone and you had the instinct to know whether or not somebody was worth your time and day.
It doesn’t matter if we no longer spend our weekends getting drunk in your living room with cheap bottle of wine. It doesn’t matter if we don’t spend our weekends eating take-away pizza. Just know that I will always like your Instagram photos, I will always watch your snapchat stories, I will always be a phone call away if you need anything and I will always and I mean always think of you as the greatest friend a girl could asked for!
