Few weeks ago I wrote about how I tried to chat to my friend twice but recieved no replies. People here told me that I was stressing myself out over nothing, so I dropped the matter trusting that everything is fine and that I'd just catch them next time.

Turns out that they had been abroad for the month! :eek: So it looks like you guys were right!! Congratulations!! All fine and dandy. I'll get be able to get in touch now that they are back from holidays or so I thought...Today a saturady: Wrote to them while they were away, thinking maybe when they returned from whatever they were doing. Several times I saw the away sign disapper for a while, go back on and then Viola: Offline

This was like the span of 4 hours. What's up with that? I don't really understand.

TL;DR
  • Wanted to chat with a friend
  • Said hello while they were busy - Fair enough. I'll wait for them to come back.
  • See them come out of busy status a couple of times
  • They go offline.
  • What?

If it's a good friend just call them, don't bother with IM. I often just ignore IMs if I have other things on my mind.

Nope... It's an online friendship. But we've been friends for a long time.

Things only went downhill when it was decided that we should stay as friends, but I don't know if that was paranoia or intuition speaking.

This behaviour is just completely new to me. Would have expected at least a hello or something.
