A friend of mine has dissapeared... Rather, I havent heard from this person in almost a month. Before anyone asks we're online friends but we've met IRL before, went on vacations togheter and were planning on meeting again soon. Then it all stopped without any warning. No emails, no texts, no nothing. At first I tought it was a break and a need for some "alone" time. It happened before. Then I tought maybe its because we're near exam season (for which I should be studying btw...) and yesterday I sent a nice Christmas message (I use christmas as my thanksgiving day, since its a lost holiday for me otherwise) where I couldnt help but mention the silence. Afterwards the anxiety over it grew tenfold so today I finally cracked and texted, basically pleading for proof of life. No response, Im at a loss. I should explain why this is taking such a toll on me. Ive had several "best friends" in my life, people who kept me going and allowed me to be myself, and while they were all so different among themselves, the one thing they all have in common is that they all just went away uncerimoniously, leaving me to figure out that they were off life rather then letting me know. Some paid lip service and pretended everything was fine for a while, others just stopped talking one day, but they all just left. This makes absolutely no sense, but Im afraid this has happened again... I dont know what to do, Im at a complete loss and this is eating me alive at the worst possible time... I was uncertain about posting this, as it can easily backfire, but I just cant keep it inside anymore.
