Default Take One Friend Or the Other?

This is so ****ing retarded. I don't even know what to do. So, it all comes down to this.

Friend x recently had a fight with Friend y. And both of them happen to be really really good friends with me. It's petty teenage arguements and I suddenly I find myself thrown in the action of it.

Friend x wants me to abandon Friend y. I know Friend y longer than Friend x. But, x to me is about just as equally good as y. She says she can only choose one or the other. I have no idea who to choose. I knew this person for about a year.

Friend y wants me to abandon Friend x. Y claims she needs me emotionally and that she would cry if I ever abandoned her. I know Y for 4 years and, she's pretty precious to me. Also, y wants me to throw away x in the garbage.

I have no idea what to do.

**** it. **** life.

But, this is the stuff that gets thrown in my face I have to choose something. I'm going to do everything it takes to keep both of them.

I'm disheartened, demoralized, and pretty damn mad.

Oh by the way, as of 5 seconds ago from editing this post. It now involves 4 people.

Friendship is not about making a pros and cons list of each person and then deciding who to keep and who to abandon. I hope your friend x and y realize that someday in their life.

I hope you sort this out with being able to keep both of them. There's not much you can do but talk to both of them.

=/ Oh drama. When I was in middle and highschool, there was a lot of things like that... where best friends weren't bestfriends anymore and lots of arguing. The principal even gathered all of us girls (who were involved) and said, "I'm tired of this crap. You're not 5 anymore. Work it out. Us teachers are sick of seeing your drama. Best friend this, best friend that, then hating each other. Grow up, there's other things you'll worry about in life" (something like that, it was a good 6 years ago lol)

Good luck to you and hopefully you'll stay friends with both of them even if they hate each other.

Friends don't make enemies of your friends. When I find myself in this situation, I really don't mind if they abandon me or not. If they really needed me as a friend, they wouldn't mind if had friend their enemies. All it matters is the time you spent with them and how much you are there to support them.

I don't believe in this "friend of an enemy is my enemy" bullshit. If your friends believe that, then they're pretty narrow-minded. When you have an enemy, just keep it them.

If it's going down like that, best answer you can say is, "Neither of you," and just walk away. If they really value friendships on the level that they think you can just ditch your friends because of an argument that doesn't involve you, then they're probably not worth your time to begin with.

Dont pick either of them. There pretty much using you to piss the other person off, either try to be peace keeper between the two or get new friends

Walk away and make it clear that you won't choose between the two of them.

Ditch them both and call them immature. If they really wanted you as friends then they would reconcile, or at least learn how to act civilized while in each other's presence (some of my friends do that as they hate some of my other friends).

This.

I can't stress enough of k0n's quote.

Choose NEITHER of them. What kind 'friend' that makes you choose over another?
If I were you, I would force them to settle the issue within themselves and ask them to solve it or gtfo.

Simple.
I once had a friend who is exactly like your friend y.. 'emotional' my bullshit.
No sympathy was given and I just left her.
