      My best friend is mad at me for no reason…
Okay, long story short her name is Valeria.  Anyways on Friday Valeria, me, and Edelisse (another friend) went over to another friend’s house.  Her name is Christina.
Anyway…Cristina had moved away and had recently moved back.  We were all standing around in her driveway talking about things we had done over the past 2 years.  Edelisse had to go home so Cristina, Valeria, and I were still chatting.
Then, like, 20 minutes later, for no explainable reason Valeria just walks away from the two of us and walks to Edelisse house (we all live in the same complex).  Me and Cristina were calling her to come back but she didn’t turn around or anything.
That was Friday. On Sunday night (yesterday) I called Valeria to ask her what had happened. She said she was mad at me and didn’t want to say why…then she hung up on me.
Right after that happened, I walked over to Cristina’s house.  While I was there Cristina decided to call her to see whether she was just mad at me or both of us.  Valeria didn’t really say much, but said she was mad at both of us, but more at me.  Then, once again, she hung up.
Today at the bus stop in the morning (we all ride the bus to middle school), I was walking with Edelisse to get there (she lives across the street from me) and I asked her why Valeria said she was mad at me.  She said that she didn’t know, that Valeria wouldn’t tell her because if she did, Edelisse would probably tell me or Cristina.
So that got me completely no where……

Valeria and I have been best friends for over 3 years….we have never gotten in a fight before.  I tried apologizing today and asking what I did but she won’t speak to me.  There is only 1 more day of school and after that, in the summer, I will have no “excuse” to see her and talk to her.
Any help or advice would be appreciated.  I don’t know why she is mad.  There is no explainable reason.  My dad said that I shouldn’t have called her yesterday…that I should have pretended that I didn’t care.  I don’t want to throw three years away, but the way she is acting that kind of sound like good advice.  

Thanks again,
~Alli~

I think it's pretty safe to say that Valeria's anger was triggered by something that was said in the conversation between you, her and Christina. Try to remember the topics you discussed: did you mention something to Christina that Valeria had asked you to keep a secret? Was Valeria showing any signs that she was feeling left out of the conversation? Those are the first thoughts that come to mind; if I were you I'd ask her if it was either of those, and that might get her talking at least.

With all due respect to your dad, I don't think that would have been the thing to do. If you want to stay friends, you should try to keep in touch with her. Try emailing or writing a letter. I'm not suggesting you try to contact her every day, but maybe she just wants to know that you care enough to try and stay friends over the summer.

Good luck, and I hope everything works out!

hey so what happened?!
I had a "friend" for many more years than 3...I won't go into it, but if that girl can't tell you what has upset her, then maybe she didn't think of you as her best friend and you should cut your losses....be glad it wasn't 12 years....besides, do you really want someone who won't tell you what's wrong to be your firend?? She just stops talking to you, like you are mind reader now? Uh.... no.....that is not what friends do.



I hope you are ok....

not yet She ending up going on vacation for almost the whole summer.  She was in puerto rico for 5 weeks and right before she came back I went to New Jersey.  I just came back, so i haven't really had the chance to talk to her yet or anything.  I'll keep everyone updated.
Thanks for all of your replies and help everyone!

I always knew looking back on the tears would make me laugh, but I never knew looking back on the laughter would make me cry.
