My friend does not want to be friends anymore. - September 30th 2010, 02:55 AM

All right, here's the deal. Everything was going fine since the 6th grade. We've always talked, and he was actually the only one that even knew what I was talking about (We're techies, and everyone else doesn't have a clue). We've been great friends. He was there when I needed help, and I was there when he needed help.

All until last thursday. He stopped responding to my texts, unwatched me on deviantART, and removed me as a friend from Facebook. I asked him multiple times, and he finally came out and said "I don't want to be your friend." He never told me why not. He has been one of my only friends since the 6th grade. Now, this happened tonight, and I don't know how to deal with this when I get to school tomorrow. Any suggestions guys?

I wouldn't get broken up about it because if he's been behaving odd, then perhaps he's dealing with something that's hard on him and not breaking up with you because he doesn't like you. See if he acts differently to others and to you, and if others act differently to him. For example, if he's being bullied by people he was not being bullied by before or if he's more withdrawn or angrier at others in general. Also see how he is doing online. Don't take what he did so personally because when people begin acting off like this, it means something is going on with them or in their family. Sometimes people are having such a hard time, they dump those they like to protect them, such as if going to commit suicide, they may want to distance themselves from others (not saying he is going to commit suicide). If he's angry or withdrawn to others, try asking them if they know why.

I can rip you off, and steal all your cash, suckerpunch you in the face, stand back and laugh. Leave you stranded as fast as a heart-attack.

I wouldn't overlook into it, not to be rude here,I don't think he was ever your friend in the beginning.I don't know what type of 'friend' just stop being friend to someone like that all of the sudden.If you feel like you honesty deserved to have an answer from him ( i think you should),you could ask if anything is bothering him that maybe led him the decision to not be friends with you anymore.I just find the situation odd.

I hope you have the strength to start all over again.- F.Scott Fitzgerald

Hey there. Friends can be difficult to understand sometimes, especially in terms of whether or not something is bothering them. I think you should give him a day or two to cool off and then ask him if something's up, and just tell him that you want to understand why he made the decision he did, and to know if he's alright.

You're welcome to PM me if you want to

You can always contact me to talk about anything!
