I have a bit of a dilemma.
I have a friend, O, who i’ve known for 10 years. We’ve been friends the whole time but we’re not one-on-one friends. Meaning we don’t talk or text, we don’t hang out together but we do when we’re in a group. We talk, but aren’t very close.
She’s recently lost alot of weight. She’s always been small, and conscious of her health and over the last year it’s really kicked in. But I’m worried about her. On New Years Day we went to the beach and you could see her spine through her skin. The bones in her shoulders were also sticking out..
She does eat, but it’s very healthy. Dressing on the side, she doesn’t eat the cheese in salads, her food is always grilled and I’m actually worried she’s not getting enough calories per day, considering she runs at least 5km a day.
My problem is this. I don’t feel close enough to her to bring it up. I feel like i’m overstepping my boundaries. I’ve spoken to her best friend about it but she doesn’t seem to think there is a problem. There are a few other girls who have also noticed, but like me, aren’t that close to her.
I don’t know what to do.
What would you do in a situation like this?
