  • If you have to work on a class project together, be careful not to bring up the topic of the argument.
  • Ask yourself why you quarreled in the first place.
  • If you're working on a project together, pretend you've never had an argument and move on. You wouldn't want to get a bad grade because of an argument.
  • Don't let your other friends say bad things about your best friend.
  • Your best friend might just need some space. Give him time and don't force him to speak up on the topic.
  • If you meet his gaze, smile at him shyly, so that he understands that you don't like being angry with him.
  • Don't get too involved in arguments.
  • If you are having trouble with a friend, don't confide in another friend, go see a teacher or an education counselor to resolve the issue.
  • If you're angry with your friend, try hanging out with other people. Your friend will repent of not being with you, having a good time.
  • Never be the source of an argument.
  • Never ask a friend to pass on your apology to your best friend.


  • Don't talk bad things about your best friend to your other friends.
  • Don't just ignore him / her: he / she will only ignore you in return, and you may never speak to each other again.
  • Do not ask him / her if he / she is angry more than twice. That would be annoying and if he / she weren't angry, you might annoy him / her.
