I lived with my ‘best friend’ for 9 years. It came to an end because she went back home (El Paso) for vacation. She told me she was going to help her family with her Dad. He was an older man and needed to make some important doctor visits and she was going to drive him. Well, I found out she was NOT helping with her Dad but instead was meeting another man in New Mexico. My ‘best friend’ confided this with a mutual friend that we had. The friend thought that this situation was something that I needed to know about and she informed me…which I appreciated. Because I no longer wanted to ‘live a lie’. And the relationship with my ‘best friend’ ended soon there after. I still see her now and then…and it’s like we are total strangers and we never knew one another.
