Describe your friend a bit to us for more detailed responses. Also if we knew what is causing the feeling it would help.

What does she like ? Maybe you can all do an activity she finds interesting like sports.

Also, why does she feel that way ? Talk to her and try to resolve the issue.

Talk to her as much as possible. When I feel down, I try to avoid contact, but that just makes me feel even worse.

When I'm feeling down I usually feel better when I'm with my friends. Maybe you should all go out and have a nice time to make her feel better, then maybe treat her to a meal that you made. Also if you and her other friends like anime you can watch it with her.

well, DO something. dont just talk on the phone.
go see her, make her some stupid gift.
write poems, have a recitail with her.
grab a laptop and go sing karaoke at her house.

talk, talk is what people do when they dont really care.
so you have to do something, action, not just words.

well, thats my .02

I wish my friends would think of something to make me feel better... *sigh* Or at least make it seem like they care a little bit about how I feel...

You could try taking her out to a cafe/coffee shop or various things of that nature from time to time and just spend some time talking. Doesn't have to be about her situation every time. Sometimes people just want a distraction from the problems in their lives. Either way you should get her to understand that you're her friend and she can always come to you for encouragement and uplifting. Whether some people realize it or not, they often want to rely on others in their times of weakness even if they don't show it.

If you decide to bake something why not invite her over and have her help? Activities are always more fun with those you love/care for. Plus you could offer them to her or her dad as a nice gesture to show you care as well.

When i'm down sometimes a friend will draw me a picture or write me a poem.

I think doing something that is made personally for another person is a precious gift.

So I should chase you when you storm off like a Tsundere? Alright!

Ok, tell her to follow you and to keep very quit or they will here you. Have some friends follow you guys in masks and to have them try and find you guys. Tell her there is no time to explain and that she needs to just be careful not to be making any sound as you try and escape. After about a few minutes and evading them plan for a place to "loose your pursuit just ask her if she hungry or something, if she isn't hungry say you are and your going to get some food real quick. Ignore any questions of explanation and let either follow you or go home or whereever you decided to have her follow you from. If she caught on at anytime before now then just tell her you was just trying to get her mind of things and you got help from so weird stranger on the internet. You can also by some of her favorite candy or snack and through it at her with her seeing you. Be careful of your surrounding though so no one else steals it instead or whatever. Those are some of my own personal favorites that have worked. Ofcourse I have others but I see you said your low on money so many of my ideas require 20 to 50 dollars most of the time. Good luck.

It's not like I want you to chase me, but it's your decision.
