5 Ways You Can Tell Your Best Friend Is No Longer Your Best Friend

  1. Says, "I promise to call you more often" -- then proceeds to not.
  2. Changes jobs and forgets to give you new number and email address.
  3. He's the Best Man at your wedding, and doesn't make you even a member of his wedding party.
  4. You've had nothing new to say for years, instead relying on the same crap you've said for the last 15 years.
  5. Dropped off the internet: no emails, no Instant Messenger, not even a Facebook page.
