    Why would my friend, someone I always stood by and considered like my brother, sell me down the river for some girl that we both know he has a 99% chance of being dumped at some point anyway?

    Because some people who think they're in love do the dumbest thing. And they know it's dumb but they do it anyway. Probably a desire to attract drama.

    I'm deeply hurt, because I'm the kind of person who gives 100% of me to into a friendship. perhaps it was my fault, because I make myself too available and he took that for granted.

    Not much detail, but I can take a guess. OP has a straight best friend who has started seeing a girl.. and now OP has been pushed aside.

    Sorry, RainbowDragon. Many straights do this--Push friendships aside the moment they get into a relationship. Don't take it personally. It's par for the course for them. I've had straight friends dissapear before when they get into a relationship. They can't help it. They lose themselves in the new relationship. If you still consider him a friend, get busy with your life, make new friends, and you'll see him come back eventually. That is.. if he learns how to balance his social life with his new relationship.

    I suspect PR_GMR is right. It isn't just straight people, though. When we get into relationships that often becomes the focus or center of our social life and, especially in the beginning, we may have less time for or interest in our other friendships. If he's a good friend, he will probably come back around eventually.

    Spot on! Friendships are relationships and for many, they are very hard to keep alive. Give him time, if you were that close, he'll be back, it's just a temporary distraction icon_cry.gif
