"best friend ..."
my best friend and i have been best friends for about seven and a half years and recently he got a new girlfriend and ever since they started dating... we never talk anymore it used to be we'd talk everyday of the week at least 2 times a day, now i'm lucky if i get to talk to him once every 2 or 3 weeks, and its really starting to hurt me ... what should i do or tell him

Well, if he gets a girlfriend, you have to consider the fact he will pay her just as much, if not sometimes more, attention as he does to you. I guess really your best bet is to keep talking with him now and then, and not just assume your friendship is over or anything.

You have to respect his decision to start dating someone, and for him to spend what time he needs with her. I'm sure he would show you the same respect if you started dating.

Anyways, if you're really worried you're losing a good friend, call him and talk with him about it. I'm sure he'll understand, and the two of you can work something out together.
