When you have been ghosted from a friend without knowing why, and after a lot of time has passed they reach out to you out of the blue like nothing happened.
I’ve been ghosted before, and as you can probably imagine it doesn’t feel nice at all. You start getting questions in your head: What did I do? What did I say? etc.
The story behind this is that I had a really good friend throughout high school; we did everything together. When school finished and we both went to separate universities (mine was closer to home, he went to one interstate), we promised each other we would keep in touch and catch up whenever we could. Long story short, over time my texts would go unanswered (even when it said that he had seen them). At first I put this down to the fact that he’s most likely pretty busy with uni, and does not have as much time as we used to when it comes to talking.
But then I went onto social media one day to look him up to get an idea of what kind of things he was up to, only to not find his name anywhere, not even on my friends list. In other words, he had most likely blocked me. Now that was really painful to find out. It took me a good while to get over it and move on.
Fast forward six years later to today and out of nowhere I get a friend request from him. At first I was pleasantly surprised, until I started to remember why I hadn’t heard from him in so long. He had cut me off with no explanation, and now all of a sudden he thinks he can reach out to me and just be friends again?? I haven’t accepted his request yet, and I don’t think I really want to, but I feel as if that means I’m dwelling too much on the past and that I haven’t really moved on and am just being selfish (or probably the other way around). Maybe it’s just because of the history we have idk.
Has anyone been in a similar situation??
