    Hiiii, so basically I have this friend that is very guarded and he puts up walls and keeps people out using sarcasm. Me and my other friend are constantly trying to get him to go out and do things with us and basically try to be more sociable. He won't agree to anything and when we ask if he's ok he always replies with a cynical answer like "I'm alive" how do I ask him if he's ok without pushing him or making it awkward? Please help!!!!

    Just keep offering, dont make a big fuss amd carry on. You think hes depressed or maybe has low confidence? Some people are naturally a bit anti social. Of you dont wnat to push him away or make it awkward then dont. Isnt there anything all three of you like doing?
