I'm always there for my friends but they can't even reply to my messages

DEAR DEIDRE: WHENEVER they need me, I am there for all of my friends – but nobody is there for me when I need them.

I’m a single woman of 37 so I don’t have anyone to talk to apart from mates.

One friend has moved a little out of town and she takes ages, sometimes weeks, to answer a message.

I’ve got another friend whom I supported all through her messy divorce but she now has a new guy and I’ve been tossed to one side.

I’m worried I’m going to lose my job and I want to talk about it, but my so-called mates haven’t even replied to my messages.

DEIDRE SAYS: Pick up the phone to your friends – either one – and tell them you need to see them, as you could do with their help.

Texts and emails are open to interpretation. It is very likely they don’t realise how worried you are feeling.

Having a larger group of friends around is always preferable to having just one or two, so check out meetup.com to find like-minded people who can expand your social circle.
