So I have this friend. We met irl, but live in different cities, so we mostly communicate through facebook So, for the past couple months, he's been making a habit of not seeing my messages unless they're sent while he's online, sometimes not even then (tho that could maybe be attributed to fb's tendency to have people marked as "active now" for a few minutes after they've closed the app) And I basically can't tell if he's ignoring me on purpose or by accident. On the one hand I always see (and reply to) all of my messages both when I use the website and when I'm restricted to the app, this is also true for most of my friends On the other hand, I'm pretty sure he's got a lot more online friends, and get a lot more messages, than anyone else I know, and I think he's been having some mental health stuff lately And either of those could be a reason why he hasn't seen my messages, but they could also be why he might deliberately choose not to waste time and energy on me. (tbh I don't really get why he bothered to be friends with me in the first place) And I've been the person who keeps trying to get in touch with someone who's trying to cut them off before. Because they wouldn't say so directly and I didn't take the hint until someone else told me. And I don't want to be doing that again, but I also don't want to be assuming someone's ignoring me when they're not And I can't ask him directly, because people aren't honest about stuff like that, and it would be kind of really manipulative Please help?
