Ask Amy: Singleton does the chicken dance at wedding
My best friend of more than 40 years did not call or send a card or gift.
I received an acknowledgement on Facebook, but it was nothing notable.
We live five minutes from each other and see each other frequently.
We were together a week after my birthday. Again, she never mentioned it.
We have not had an argument.
I never miss her special day. I have given gifts, and always call on the day of her birthday.
I am hurt and angry. At this point, I just want to ghost her.
Help this old lady deal with this breach in friendship.
– Sad at Seventy
Dear Sad: Turning 70 is a milestone birthday, but please don’t turn this disappointment into severing a relationship of many decades.
