I finally said (or rather skyped) something today. I have had roughly two conversations with her in god knows how long where she wasn't also simultaneously skyping with her new friend. It was really incredibly obnoxious, and I resented not being able to even speak with her without it being a group effort, so I finally said so (in nicer terms).
Not surprisingly, I haven't heard a word from her in return. She's not big on confrontation, but even so I would have thought my statement merited at least the courtesy of acknowledgement. I feel like there's no longer any room for me in her life, and maybe I should let it go and move on.
You know what I also resent the hell out of? The fact that a friendship should mean this much to me. It should be No Big Deal, but I've grown way too dependent on/close to her, and that's my fault. I survived for years without any truly close, accessible friends, and I can damn sure do it again.
So, I guess my focus should be - do I answer calls and return emails in a civil manner, and just distance myself from the whole situation? Do I not answer calls/emails and hope she takes the hint? Am I asking these questions hypothetically because I know she probably won't even bother to get in touch unless her computer breaks or her internet is shut off and she can't skype (literally) 24/7? Yes. Most likely.
Ugh. Why does this feel like a relationship? Not cool. Friendships shouldn't be like this.
