Whe I'm not with my best friend I am bored and kinda depressed. I mean I have a life and all sorts of hobbies et cetra. But nothing seems fun w/o her. Sometimes I'm kinda depressed when I'm w/ her too. But that is b/c she is my only best friend and she has this other best friend that I keep thinking she is going to replace me with. That would leave me up the creek w/o an paddle b/c I dont remember how exactly to go about making friends anymore. I don't know what to do with myself when she isn't w/ me. What do you think I should do to stop feeling this way?

i have a ? first... r u a guy or a girl? please don't be offended... can't tell by your name.

it seems to me that you've become dependent on her. it's like an addiction but not deadly... that's what it looks like any ways.
u can break this hold just like any other, one step at a time. when you're w/ her talk to someone new. smile at everyone.. worst they can do is flip u off... and is that gonna kill ya? no.. just gives u something to laugh bout, w/ someone besides your best friend
it's just a step at a time

having a best friend is great. you enjoy eachothers company, you can trust them, and best of all you have fun and feel secure. But it is also very important that there are other people you can enjoy your time with. You said that sometimes you feel sad even when you are with her... is there anything specifically you're thinking about? I think you should go try to do something social without your best friend. Join a club, a sport, an art class...something that you personally enjoy. Then introduce yourself to new people and just be whoever you are. There is no technique to meeting friends, I mean.. it happened with your best friend and its not like you forced her into it didya?
