My daughter is almost 16 and a freshman at high school. Recently she lost two close friends. One moved away and the other pulled away from her for reasons we still don't fully understand. My daughter does have a boyfriend but I am concerned with her lack of any close girlfriends. She herself has expressed her unhappiness about it as well.
She is friendly and very creative....is in a large club at school and goes to an all girl summer camp where she has a good time but does not see any of the girls outside of the camp. She's never been the type to have group of friends...she's more the one on one type or a just a couple friends. Right now she has no close girlfriends. We encourage her to make an effort and she does here and there but just isn't connecting with anyone. She and her boyfriend text constantly. She has told her boyfriend that she wishes she had friends that want to hang out with her. What can I do to help her with the girlfriend issues?
