Dear's Advice For Carrie and Miranda

Dear's Advice For Carrie and Miranda

Have you ever gotten into a knockdown, drag-out fight with your best friend? Well I have, and it was hands down the worst feeling in the world. If your an avid Sex and the City watcher, chances are you'll remember this fight between Carrie and Miranda.

While fighting is perfectly normal in every relationship, not letting them get out of control takes some tact. To see DearSugar's advice on how to avoid a confrontation like this,


Even when you have that unbreakable bond of friendship with your BFF, fights are inevitable, especially when one person doesn't approve of the others romantic relationship. In this situation, Miranda has seen Mr. Big hurt Carrie time and time again, and as the one whose always been there to comfort her, she's vehemently skeptical of them getting back together. But instead of talking to her with a cool head, she let her frustration get the best of her. It's pretty clear that Miranda had some strong opinions about their relationship, but by bottling them up inside, she couldn't help but explode when all Carrie really needed was the support of her best friend.

As we all know, words hurt and in the heat of the moment, nasty insults can easily make a situation like this worse. As a rule of thumb, avoid letting your emotions fester — instead voice your concerns before they turn a simple difference of opinion into a full-fledged battle. Also, if you're being hurt by your loved one, try not to hurt them back in return just to prove a point — as the old grade-school saying goes, two wrongs don't make a right. Even though there's no way to avoid fighting with your friends, always try to take things into perspective. Remember that you don't have to agree with every little thing they say or do, but when it comes down to it, being a good friend means you'll always be there for each other.

So have you ever gotten into a fight like this with your best friend? If so, how did you make up?

i too have had girlfriend fights two in fact. The one fight we made up and are still friends. But the other we haven't spoken in almost 5 or 6 years. I tried to make my peace and apologize but she didn't feel like she had done anything wrong. I was pissed that she wasn't willing to apologize and let it go. She was fine with ME apologizing but she didn't want to. She never EVER got along with my husband and when she would come to visit it would cause stress between all three of us. They had a HUGE fight and i got stuck in the middle. She behaved terribly and i resented them both for their behaviour. I didn't side with either one of them but she felt like i sided with my husband WTF??!! I guess she thought i was going to divorce him or something to appease her??!!! I just couldn't be friends with someone who HATED my husband!!! i thought time and distance would heal but she wouldn't budge. So bye bye!

I've never really had something like this happen. It might be because my best friend is a guy? Well there was this one time we were annoying the hell out of each other and stopped talking for about 5 mins. Then we looked at each other and started cracking up about it. That's about the closest thing I've got to this though.

I've had arguments here and there with my best friends over the years...nothing too major though.

Ugh, my best friend and I have just learned to support each other and not comment on the boyfriends unless it is obviously a shared opinion ("He stood me up. He's a jerk." "Yup, he's a jerk."). She's dating a drug dealer, and it's really hard not to just drive over and kidnap her because he is such a loser and takes advantage of her. But I know no amount of rescuing will change her feelings about him, she has to see it for herself. Since we live in different cities, it's a lot easier to avoid boyfriend drama - I think if I lived in town I'd have already killed him.

I've never had a fight this bad that didn't end the friendship.

Hmmm I can't ever recall anything like this ever happening to me. But I have had tiffs with friends before, duh. I think the most bothersome to me was having a friend bash on me about being a homebody. Sorry we all aren't still into going to bars all the time...ya know?

If I ever said anything like this to my friends they'd cut me out of their lives forever, even when I'm trying to be honest and helpful.
