So back in high school me and my friend were best friends. After high school graduation we went our separate ways i went to a university while she went to a community college. The drive isn't much a different i would say about 20 minutes away from school and home, but i moved into a apartment so i would be closer to the campus.
Sometimes we would go out with the other girls from high school and hang out, but with me having a job i wasn't able to hang out with them as often. Recently i saw her at a gathering, and it was really awkward with her. I felt like she didn't even want to say hi or catch up. Since school is starting up again, i asked her if she wanted to go and hang out,but she always has an excuse for me. the first time we were going to go, but something came up and she couldn't make it. second time, her mother didn't want her to go and she somehow made her mother upset. So today i decided to go and get some boba and asked her again if she wanted to go with me, but again she said she couldn't go and she really needed to clean her room and do something online.
So the question is, she is purposely avoiding me or is she really that busy.
Also, what age would u guys consider a decent age for a person to stop asking their parents permission to go somewhere or to hang out with their friends?
Because my friend always has to ask her parents permission. i notice that whenever we want to do something she always goes, "i have to ask my mom," not to be mean or anything but she is over the age of 18 and i think she should be able to make her own decisions on her own.
