It seems like I'm the only person who gets myself into arguments with my friends, or people I think are my friends... what are some of your experiences, if any, and how do you deal with them?

i dont really have friends anymore but when i did i rarely argued with them. but when i did...its like we wanted to kill each other. eventually tho (about 8th grade) i got tired of that stuff and just started to ignore even those situations when arguments would break out. i mean they'll always be new people in your life anyways.

Don't worry about them.

I always end up in fights with friends and people considered "friends", and overall it results in no longer communicating.
As you get older, you'll find that weeding out those type of people can be quite beneficial.

i always argue with my best friends, in fact, thats one of the ways that i use to tell if I'm really close to someone or not. case and point. i argue with my sister on a daily basis.

Always take the high road, you don't want to be burning bridges with people you actually invest time in. From my experience, the people i butt heads with have ended up being my friends. So arguing for me is a good sign (all in moderation, of course).

ignore each other for days, pretend like nothing happened
then go back to normal.

Sorry to hear about your disputes with your friends. I've been there many many times in the past sadly. It is common. I think if you're really good friends with them that you'll often make up with them unless one of you has done something so so so serious that the other(s) can't forgive them. I've had spats and we've overcome them. You will too if they're really friends.

If they aren't true friends then you'll find out eventually. It took me ages to realise that some of the people I was hanging out with were total idiots. But I learnt the hard way. If I learnt sooner I would've saved myself a lot of grief. Oh well!

I once got into a fight with my friend because he didn't like the character I was using in a fighting game (I was beating the shit out of him ). He unfriended me and didn't talk with me for a week, tried to reconcile with me a couple of weeks later and I basically told him to fuck off lol. He tried for another couple of weeks before he gave up. After about a year, after an intervention with the friends that we shared happened, we made up, but we never got back to talking as much as we used to lol.

Other than that, I've never really gotten into arguments that turned personal with other friends. They're all either pretty intelligent or not easy to anger anyway or people that we always crack jokes on/get jokes cracked on by. I have a pretty solid policy whereas if someone I consider a friend even tries to cut bonds with me, I make sure that they (the bonds) stay cut, and I let them know that if needed lol.

If you can't get past your fighting, you probably shouldn't be friends. It's normal to have disagreements from time to time though.

My ego doesn't deflate if friends go outside the general mould I conceive for them, we just kiss and make up.

My "friends" used to want to argue with me about everything and then because I tried to ignore such situations they decided to ignore me. I cannot wait to graduate so I do not have to see those people every again.

When I still had friends we fought from time to time. Nothing out of the ordinary really. It's inevitable if you know each other for a long time, at some point the right buttons get pressed and there's a fight. Then you forget about it when feelings cool off.

I simply just ignore them for awhile

Then we ignore the existence of the fighting.
