This comic is almost enough to make me wish I'd gone in for the whole 'girlfriends/slumber parties/socialization' thing. Almost.
I was always friends with the geeky boys no one else would hang out with. I think the closest female friend I ever had was another girl who was picked on constantly - after all my guy friends moved away or fell in with other social circles, we were nearly inseparable for all of one or two years before I switched schools.
She called me, once, the year after I switched. Sounded like she was doing fine, she'd made new friends and everything. We hadn't hung out constantly or anything, so it's not like our separation was the end of the world.
At the new school I met two girls (Rachel and Kara, who were also new that year - fourth grade) and we became a sort of Three Musketeers group. And like every adolescent novel with three female characters in the main roles, there was some tension over who was really who's 'best friend'. I was usually second. *shrug* nothing new there.
I remember Michael and Rachel absolutely could not get along in fourth grade, when we all were in the same class. We all shared a table at some point; I sat next to Michael and Kara sat next to Rachel and we had to constantly prevent any contact between them.

Heh. Even back then I had a crush on Michael. Sad, no? I just don't give up... *rolls eyes* For the love of god, somebody shoot me before this lasts into college...

*whimper*
... please?
