Jealousy and possessiveness occur in all relationships- including friendships.

I've been envious of new friends that supplant old friendships.

There are times for stiffening your upper lip but this isn’t one of them.

Let it all out on your nearest and dearest, and don’t feel ashamed about it.

You need to grieve the loss of the relationship – if you don’t you’ll find it even harder to move on.

“I’m going to need some time.” We’d just finished the second round of a breakup talk at the end of a relationship that was three months but felt like six.I've found that the only real distinction between friend and boyfriend is the attraction factor.A boyfriend is actually a friend that you'd like to get kinky with as soon as possible.He suggested dinner sometime; I countered with coffee. At this point, we’re more friends who dated a really long time ago than “exes.” Two of them, I’ve danced at their weddings.But once I got home and thought about following up to schedule that coffee, I didn’t. As I thought about how many exes and quasi-exes I already have as friends, I wasn’t sure I wanted or needed another one. One of them started a book club that I’ve been part of for years.
