So last year, I made friends with this guy named Ryan. And over the course of a few months, we became very good friends.
We would text almost every other day and then meet up on the weekends for coffee or lunch. We even took a short road trip together to Austin.
Well, last month, we were texting and then suddenly, his texts stopped. I didn’t think much of it; just guessing that he was busy with work. So I waited a few days and then texted him. No response. So I waited a few more days and gave him a call, to see if he was ok. No response. A week went buy, and I still hadn’t heard from him.
At this point, I’m guessing that either something bad happened, or that he no longer wants to be my friend.
A month goes by without hearing from him, and suddenly, he texts me yesterday. I was glad to hear from him and asked why he had cut contact with me. He said he had just gotten back from a month long trip to Europe. And acted like nothing happened.
This bothered me. Personally, if I was the type of friend who had been in regular contact, I would’ve told my friend what was going on, and that I was planning on leaving the country for a while.
I’m still not sure how I feel about picking up our friendship where we left off. I’m a bit leary, and honestly a bit hurt.
I mean, who DOES that?! Certainly none of my other friends.
I’m hoping I can find a new perspective on this that will help me move forward. Either with or without his friendship.
Any advice is welcome!
