Top 5 DOG THIEVES Caught In The Act! (People Stealing Dogs)
How to Act when Someone Is Stealing Your Friend
Examine the group dynamics closely.Does this new person try to get between you and your friend, or do they naturally fall together? Does anyone make an effort to include you in the discussion?
- Perhaps your friend is just making new friends, and nobody intends for you to feel left out.
- Maybe the new person is interested in befriending your friend, but doesn't click as well with you.
- Or you and your friend are drifting apart.
Evaluate your relationship with your friend.Have you ever teased your friend to the point of hurting their feelings, pushed them around, or argued with them a lot? Do the two of you seem to not have much in common anymore? It may be that the new person isn't the cause of the problem, but that there is an issue between the two of you.
- If you're feeling confused, try asking an adult for advice, like your parent or a guidance counselor.
- If you're growing apart, it might be time to let the friendship fade.
Take your friend aside and explain that you're feeling a little left out.Be honest and considerate. It might be that your friend didn't realize this, and will then fix the problem by including you more.
- Example: "Kaja, I need to talk with you. Lately, when we're hanging out with Melanie, I feel a little left out. I'm glad that you're making new friends, but I'd like it if we could hang out a bit more together."
- If there are any issues in your friendship, your friend is likely to bring them up then.
Remain polite towards the other person if possible.Most people do not intend to "steal" friends; they just naturally click better with one person than the other. Assume that they mean well unless they have proven otherwise.
- Even if they have been rude or mean to you, try not to be rude back. Be the better person, ignore the bad behavior, and go ask an adult for further advice.
Schedule one-on-one time with your friend.This way, you will maintain a strong relationship.
- Plan outings together: to the beach, around town, to an amusement park, et cetera. This will give you and your friend bonding time.
- Do arts and crafts. Try painting, making friendship bracelets, drawing pictures of your favorite characters, et cetera.
- Get your friend's phone number (if you haven't already).
- If your friend wants to invite the new person, say "I'd rather it just be the two of us this time, okay?" Then include the new person some other time (or let them hang out with your friend on their own time).
Consider inviting the new person to join you sometimes.Despite the rocky start, you could become a great trio!
- Try planning some events that involve only you and your friend, and inviting the new person along to some other events.
- It's okay if you don't want to befriend the new person. However, don't actively avoid them or try to separate them from your friend—this is cruel and could lead to bullying.
Invest in other relationships.Make new friends, hang out with old friends, and spend time with your family members. Spending time with other people will help you gain perspective, and it will help you stay balanced.
Spend time on yourself.It's important not to get too hung up on one relationship. Engage in your hobbies, take good care of your health, and spend plenty of time relaxing. Take care of yourself first.
Tell an adult if the other person or your friend is bullying you.Maybe they trulydon'tmean well, or they're pushing things too far without listening when you say so. Here are some ways to tell if you're being excluded on purpose:
- When you enter the room, people walk away from you
- People say upsetting things about you behind your back
- You're being threatened
- People make jokes that hurt your feelings, even if you say that it's upsetting you
- People don't listen when you ask them to knock it off
- The idea of talking to a certain person gives you a stomachache
QuestionWhat should you do if you're being purposefully excluded from the group?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerMove on. People who actually want you in their lives wouldn't put themselves in a position to lose you. Maybe the group feels threatened by you because of your skills and talents, so they'd rather not be a around you because they feel inadequate. Don't just rely on the group; be in a position that if you have no friends, you are still all right.Thanks!
QuestionMy best friend has been getting jealous over me hanging out with boys, so whenever I talk with them, she steals them away from me. I don't want to be mean to her. What should I do?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerBe honest with her. Say if she can't allow you to have other friends, you shouldn't be friends at all. A friend isn't a friend if she's acting this way.Thanks!
QuestionWhat if I tell my friend how I feel, but they don't understand and take the other friend's side?Styxlethe21Community AnswerBe patient with them, and try suggesting a compromise. Get to know their new friend, and see things from their point of view. If your friend takes his or her side to the point of being rude, remember your greatest moments, and remind her/him of them too.Thanks!
QuestionThis girl at school is trying to steal my friend. This girl is being rude to me. What can I do?Styxlethe21Community AnswerIf that's the case, they may not mean well for your friend either. Try talking to your friend. It will probably be difficult to convince them that this new friend isn't the best for them, so be patient.Thanks!
QuestionThis girl was really mean to me last year, and now her and her "gang" are stealing my best friend and trying to turn her against me. What do I do?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIf your best friend turns against you, then she wasn't a very good friend in the first place. Have a talk with her and tell her you're concerned. Tell these people that you know what they're trying to do, and it isn't going to work. If they continue bothering you, tell a teacher or another adult that they're bullying you.Thanks!
QuestionWhat do I do if 2 or more people are stealing my friend?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerTalk to your friend about how you feel about the situation in private. Hopefully, she will take how you feel well, and look at the situation from your point of view. The bottom line is that if she wants to keep you in her life, she will make sure you are still in it. If she doesn't, you may want to think about why you want her in your life.Thanks!

Try to spend more time together and strengthen the friendship.Thanks!
QuestionWhat if there's no space or time to talk to your friend because she's always spending time with the other person?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerAsk her to schedule some one-on-one time because you'd like to talk to her.Thanks!
