My two best friends don’t like each other very much and I feel caught in the middle. How can I resolve this sticky situation?By Irene S. Levine for Life & Beauty Weekly
Unfortunately, just because your two best friends have the chemistry to get along great with you doesn’t mean they’ll have it with each other. But you’re in a unique position to help your pals see the best in each other. If they just aren’t gelling, try bringing them together by doing some activities that all three of you love. Keep the first outing light and free of expectations. If they seem to click, keep inviting them out together until it becomes more comfortable.
If, however, you find that your two friends constantly rub each other the wrong way, don’t continue to push a round peg into a square hole. Recognize that people have different personalities and tastes in friendship, and your two friends don’t have to be each other’s BFFs in order to be yours.
