How should a girl behave with her ex-best friend who now ignores her?


Please, explain to me how should I behave with a boy who was my best friend and, now, groundless, ignores me?

Do not impose yourself on him, so that you may not be even more ignored by him and then by other people, too.  A respectful and proper behavior honor a girl, as it is written in Scripture, even if that text refers primarily to clothes.

Do not hate this guy. In the heart of the Christian must not be hate for anyone. Therefore, live in peace with this guy and if he is your schoolmate or classmate behave with him just as you treat all your colleagues, that is modestly and discreetly.

But a man must examine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not judge the body rightly. For this reason many among you are weak and sick, and a number sleep. (Romans 12:17-18)(NASB)

If that boy is not yet a child of God begin to pray for the salvation of his soul and pray this way for all of your colleagues. So God teaches us in Scripture:

First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men. (1 Timothy 2:1)(NASB)

Be wise and protect yourself from such frustrations in the future and never accept to date any guy before marriage. If you find it strange what I tell you, I invite you to read the articles “Dating and successful marriage” Part I and Part II.

Focus now on building your relationship with God and learn to live in complete obedience to Him and be sure He will fulfill the promise He has made in His word when He said:

The hope of the righteous is gladness, but the expectation of the wicked perishes. (Proverbs 10:28)(NASB)

God help you live a righteous life.
