Tips

Gotta have trust and communication!

Kristy101081

So many relationships deteriorate because of trust and communication. I've been watching my best friend's relationship do this for the last three years. And they're planning the wedding right now.

Normally I would say to stay out of it, but it was breaking my heart and I just paid $300 for the maid of honor dress, so I'm going to wear the thing. Since they're both my best friends, I staged an intervention. We hashed some things out and the two are on their way to working their problems out. Both have certainly been a lot friendlier - much like their normal selves.

Their problem was a lack of communication had fostered mistrust. It's the little things that seem to make the biggest differences and he believed one thing while she was adamant about another. Communicate!

How true!Sometimes you're so involved in the middle of the thing you can't see the forest for the trees. It was good of you to step in although alot of times stepping in lands you in the middle and then both parties blame you for everything that follows. Loving friends are the cornerstone for grounding sometimes for their friends and their temporary problems.
