Lol i dont remember if i've had fights with friends but me and my mom get into fights quite often and like a few minutes after the fight ill pretty much just ignore and forget about it and pretend it never happened i wounder if that annoys her lol


You bet it does, especially if the arguments are starting from her end. Keep ignoring her in different ways, stay neutral, and patienty see what happens. P:

I've recently had a fight with friends or who I thought were friends, and it's pretty much overshadowing my life at the moment.

I don't have many friends. I find people rather confusing. But I had two close friends. One was a girl who claimed to be my "bestie". Another was a guy who was friends with her first, and she introduced us. Me and my "bestie" spent a hell of a lot of time together. We played games and wrote stories together and told each other everything. I confided in her about a lot of stuff (maybe thats what I did wrong). Suddenly she didn't seem to want to know me. And when I finally spoke up and asked why she was going out of her way to avoid me... well apparently that was wrong and cold somehow. Apparently asking why someone is being a dick to you is the same as pissing on fond memories. I'm the bad guy somehow now... I should supposedly just be happy with nice memories even though I'm gonna get ignored forever more now.

A fight and an argument are two very different things and when someone can't tell the difference I ignore them for the rest of their life.
However long that may be.

Ignore them for a while.
Things get back to normal after a few days.

My friends and I occasionally argue, but we always reconcile with an apology and move on. That said, half of us are easygoing types (myself included), and the other half are the ones that usually get upset. Depending on who you argue with, the two sides even each other out.

When it comes to getting into fights, if it's not a super common thing, fighting with each other is relatively normal. Just apologize. If you both forgive each other, then you should be fine. If one of you doesn't get over it, the friendship is basically over.

After fighting, which we rarely ever do, we bro hug it out. It's safe to say that I have an awesome circle of friends.

Me and my friends will disagree on stuff like I think Hiruzen is a bad Hokage in Naruto, or I think Fairy Tail went downhill. But it never gets serious and we just accept each others opinions after messing around a bit. We both know how to take jokes at ourselves.

It's a learning experience. You shouldn't fight but you have the right to argue your opinions.

If you're really "best friends" with each other, these fights don't last very long
Posted 2/22/16
Why of course you argue most with your friends. You don't talk to other people enough to get into arguments with them and you probably wouldn't feel comfortable arguing with a stranger or even an acquaintance. Arguments are inevitable and healthy.
Me and my best friend argue all the time but we're different people so it makes sense for us to have disagreements and when we do argue we don't think less of each other.

The more we fight, we make up the better; it helps deepen your friendship and understanding with each other. It shows your weakness/ your friend/s' - think of it as getting to know each other more. It's quite normal to fight if you care for one another.

A good advice is for both parties to have a cooling period to sort things out. Just don't expect him/ her to be the one to start off the reconcilation and saying sorry - sometimes just man up and be the first one to do so (even if it's not your fault). More importantly, never ever blame him/ her (each other); one must learn to acknowledge that they're wrong. Don't ever let pride be the one to destroy something wonderful like friendship. It's unfortunate to lose someone important in your life over pride. However, if that friend is a bad influence and you've done everything you can to help them go in a better direction (don't force them to change - one must not change for the sake of others, and if you must change - it better be for your own sake), then you're better off without them. I know that sounded harsh but people come and go in our lives. Don't expect them to stay if they don't want to and don't stay because you expect them to not want you go. In the end it's your/ their decision.

Have a nice day pal~

Thank you all for your insightful words of wisdom. My best bet I suppose would be to ignore them for another 6 months... I'm actually glad they are doing the same.
