  • me and my best friend have fought pretty damn bad...to the point where we dont talk to eachother for a while...but we still end up talking in the end...sometimes friends can get sick of eachother and annoyed...and need time apart...theres nothing wrong with that! just back off for a bit and give your friend time to calm down...some people dont handle things well when you dont give them time to cool off....so just keep your distance for a bit and then try again later....a true friend will get over it and move on....

  • What was the fight over? If it was something serious enough, she may have decided your friendship wasn't worth it, or maybe there is more than just this one issue for her, that has made her decide she can't forgive you. If the fight was over what movie to see.....dumb, but if the argument was over kids, husbands, family issues, and it was important enough....she may be done.

    And then there are times when people just need to cool off. Without more details it's hard to say.

  • You can't make someone forgive you. Let her know how sorry you are and tell her that when she is ready to talk you'll be there. Then just give her the space she needs to come around. Forgiveness is hard for the person who needs to be forgiven AND the person doing the forgiving. If you really want her friendship, you have to be patient. Some hurts don't go away as soon as you say that you are sorry (but that is the first step of course).

    Good luck!
