Give Them Space

Whether you just had a heated quarrel with your best friend or the atmosphere has just been tense between the two of you, take some time for yourself and at the same time give them space. This will give you time to think things through and think of the best way to carry out your plan of action on how to win your best friend back. Absence of contact will also give your friend time to sort things out in her or his head, which will make the future conversation much easier since both sides would be able to elucidate their feelings.


Patch Things up

After taking some time for yourself, it might be time to converse with your friend in person. This can be your chance to express your concerns about the state of your friendship and share your true feelings in a calm and reasonable manner. Let your friend know why you felt hurt or why you suddenly feel distant because it's more than likely he or she didn't know the effects of their actions.


Hear the Other Side

Conversations are always between two people, so after your finish talking it’s time to hear the other side out without any interruptions. Try to understand their feelings too and put yourself in their shoes. If you make them feel like you completely understand their position and regret hurting their feelings, chances are that they will forgive you too and let go of their hurt.


Make Compromises

This would be the time when both of you make the mutual decision to make up and remain best friends or you would both realize that you just drifted apart. However, if you decide to make compromises and use this as an opportunity to strengthen your friendship, make sure to fix all disagreements between you so you can continue on with a clear mind.


Show Effort

Even after making up it’s important to nurture your newly restored friendship. So put more effort in your friendship by making new plans and communicating. Try to treat your friend like you would want your ideal best friend to treat you. However, don’t force anything and don’t pay excessive attention to your friend, it should all be natural!

Strengthen the Bond

In order to ensure that you won’t have a falling out again or feel distant from each other it’s important to strengthen your bond. So make your friend feel important and share things with them. Show them that you drew your own conclusions from the previous misunderstanding and are willing to learn from them.


Be Persistent

Even if you are not able to make up with your best friend at first, don’t just give up and be persistent. Your best friendship might be debased to a normal friendship, but don’t let go of the hope because if things go well for a while with just being friends, chances are that you will naturally take your friendship to a new level and become best friends again over time!

Depending on the situation friendships can be hard to fix, but that doesn't mean that there is no way out. What tips would you give to a person trying to win their best friend back?

Thanks I will try this I lost my best friend so upset will try this

Hi, me and my friend used to be REALLY close before we started high-school. I told her and my other bff that I really really liked this boy, and told her not to tell anyone, this happened about a year ago. Then when we started high school, she became good friends with a girl who used to bully me when I went to girl guides. Then in science this really funny guy that my friend ( other friend, not the bff one) has a crush on said to his friend siting next to me \" hey tom! Sakuya\'s a badass, aren\'t you\" I giggled \" she went into town without telling her parents\" WHAT THE HELL?!? I was thinking, because I only told a few friends that I actually said \" wha-? How do you know that?\" He said that my friend ( the bff one) told him, then he whispered \" and she told me you like***** \" I don\'t know what to do about my friend if shes gonna keep telling random dudes in my class my biggest secrets PS - we sorta don\'t talk coz I heard her say to someone \" yeah, that girl used to be my bff\" when she thought I couldn\'t hear her in class PPS - sorry its so long
