My Friend Dumped Me Over A Guy: Should I Give The Friendship Another Go?

There's a really short answer to this one.  You're better off without her! You've managed to escape, don't throw yourself back into her clutches. It's natural to be sad when a friendship ends but you are clearly not the guilty party here.

You obviously have the patience of a saint even to have put up with this girl. She didn't  appreciate you then, and she's not going to now. She displayed qualities of a self involved narcissist, she didn't value your friendship and used you as an audience. You were probably a valuable sounding board and good for her ego.

If she hasn't tried to reach out to you since then, I'd say leave well enough alone and don't get back into a bad situation, she's not worth it.

Friendship is about give and take, not take, take, take!
