I’ve fallen out with my best friend because I wasn’t quick enough to tell her which wedding dress to buy

DEAR DEIDRE: MY best friend isn’t talking to me because I wasn’t quick enough to tell her which wedding dress to buy.

She’s 36 and waited years for her boyfriend to propose. When he finally did, his family caused a load of hassle.

I’ve tried to be there for her. I’m 34 and single.

She asked me to be a bridesmaid and I was honoured to say yes. I suffer with depression, though, and a month ago I was in a low place when she sent me some photos of wedding dresses. I was stressed at work and forgot to respond.

I messaged her the following week to apologise.

She texted back claiming she “didn’t care” but clearly she did, as we’ve not spoken since. I don’t know if I should be part of her wedding if she is being so petty.


MOST people of both sexes masturbate at some stage and it’s a safe way for youngsters to learn what works for them.

Yet many find it hard to talk about. My e-leaflet Masturbation Worries? explains and reassures. Email me or private message my Facebook page.

DEIDRE SAYS: Texts can be taken the wrong way. Go round and see her with a bunch of flowers and ask how the plans are going.

The chances are she will greet you with open arms.

It sounds like this depression is still affecting you. Make an appointment to see your doctor. I’m sending you my e-leaflet Dealing With Depression, which includes self-help.
