    Not quite the same but my best friend from university ghosted me 4 years ago. We were so close but lived 100s of miles apart so we only saw each other a couple of times a year. We invited them up and she said no, we were no longer friends and that was that. No explanation, just that our lives were too different – both being full time working mums with 2 kids each of similar ages, doing different jobs than we’d trained for and with mortgages and husbands, so different. I unfollowed her on facebook, put away the thoughtful gift she’d given me a year before, took down the photo of her as my bridesmaid. I still miss her like crazy, ask myself what I did wrong, and if she ever turns up needing my friendship, I’ll be there. She chose a time when I was alone in a new town, with a 6 month old baby, about to go back to work. I don’t think I’ll ever understand what happened, but I respect her withdrawal and leave her alone. It still saddens me.

    • Oh wow, that’s really cold to just say that like that. I’m sorry you had to go through that. I actually have another blog post on here that’s about growing apart from one of my friends at university. We just didn’t see each other for years and our lives went in different directions – I think it’s so hard when you live miles from each other and don’t get to spend much time together. Like you, I wish her no ill will and you never know, our paths might align in the future!
