    Hes using me a bit but I think its more he shows signs of autism (I have aspergers) a few years back I told him to get assessed and he had 2 appointments with his doctor who referred him on but then he had to move at short notice and back to his parents in a village in the North of Scotalnd so I heard from his less and less.

    He applies for jobs and uses my address which I worry about as I get benefits and they may think he lives here, and if he gets an interview he gives me little to no notice but I do get suspicous as hes hardly ever online unless he plays Warcraft or uses Steam, so if I see him online and its not nighttime and he isn't playing a game I think he wants to speak to me

    And its true, the times I speak to him when hes online during day he asks if he can come down then I may not see him for a week or more online.

    Then if I see him online in evening he never replies.

    Saw him a few days ago online and said hi, no response, said hi 20 minutes later and he replied but outright admitted "I don't feel like speaking most of the time so thats why I don't respond"

    Really wanted someone to speak to and he never bothers.

    Even in person when he visits I try and have a conversation and 9 times out of 10 hes like "im not in the mood, I want to sit and watch this film, talking is annoying me"

    I think it is more his stress and potential autism than him being nasty but it feels like a one way friendship.

    What do you think.

    Why are you friends with him? Friendship is a two way thing.
