I've been friends with this guy for a year. Until about a two months ago, I had spent almost every day of the last year, sometimes for up to seven hours, listening to his problems. One-way conversations mostly. He had a lot of stuff to work through, and since we were friends, I was happy to listen. At least I kind of thought talking for three hours plus a day made us friends. I had a really serious family problem start up about six weeks ago, and really needed some support. My friend-ish is suddenly nowhere to be found. I've tried not to be pushy about it- I called twice, asking how he is and letting him know I needed someone to talk to, but had to leave a message as he didn't pick up. And I never heard back. The last time I saw him, we had a great time together. I've never said anything behind his back that would have gotten repeated. I'm at a complete loss. So is this a normal guy thing to do to friends? I've never had a guy or girl friend go completely awol before. Honestly, with most people, I wouldn't think twice about them not getting back. It's just that I invested a lot of energy and emotion in trying to help him out, and it just kind of hurts that he doesn't seem to have my back.
