    Losing any friendship is hard, but when you truly don’t know why it’s even harder. And you may never know. There is no easy way to deal with this but releasing him with love and wishes for healing to occur for whatever hurts are there. Don’t beat yourself up. If this were truly about you, with contemplation you would know what had offended him. It seems like there is something deeper to the issue than what it may seem on the surface. Keep loving people — in person and virtually — treasure the relationships, and continue to give the world your best.

      I agree. I’ve let it go. I still care so much about him, he’s a good person, and I wish him well. My husband and family are more upset on my behalf than I am now. Things unfold as they should. But, I still wonder about the relationships we form on-line. Are they falsely intimate? Do we reveal ourselves too easily or are we revealing a false self? I think this is an important question.

    Gosh, reading your post reminds me how easy it is to misinterpret the subtext of a person’s online comments. Even in person it’s hard to “sort things out” to the point that you go on as you did before. When a person cuts you, either in person or online, I always have a sick-to-the-stomach feeling. With no phone contact and his refusal to answer, you will never know exactly why, but possibly a story will emerge from that.

      Sick in the stomach feeling is actually as accurate as you can get. We comment in a friendly way on each other’s posts now and the elephant in the room is not spoken about. I am very careful what I ‘like’ now, reading the whole thing carefully. It was a harsh lesson. Life unfolds as it should. And you’re right, everything that happens can and probably will come out in a story somewhere.
