The Silent treatment


I'm just a teenager and this is really hurting me. I have a male friend who I always used to hang out with. A few weeks ago, he gave me the silent treatment for no reason. At first, I thought I was being paranoid but when I went to talk to him, he walked away. I asked my friend to ask him why he was mad at me and he said "Because she's annoying." I don't ever remember being so annoying that he would give me the silent treatment. Anyways, I apologized and he forgave me. Then on Thursday, I talked to him and we hung out at the park and we were laughing and everything. But, when I came to school on Friday, he completely hated me again! I tried to ask what I did but he wouldn't tell me. So I said "you're mad at me right?" and he said ""NO, really??!!" And I said "The thing is, is that, you have no reason to be mad at me because the last time I talked to you was on Thursday and everything was fine!" He just rolled his eyes at me. Then he went to laugh about me with his friend. I don't know if he's bullying me or something but I always feel sad when he's mad at me because I remember how great of friends we were before. I went to see the Titanic movie with him and we had a great time. Trust me, he's not my boyfriend. I really don't know what to do so please help because its Monday now and he still hasn't talked to me.

Sounds like maybe he pretends to not like you at school, but then wants to be friends outside of school. Also sounds like he doesn't want his other friends to know you two are friends. Have they been making fun of him perhaps, maybe bugging him that you're his girlfriend, even if you aren't.

Silent Treatment

Actually, they have. Oh my gosh I think you're right. I think he's just embarrassed by me. I remember my Geography class was making fun of us. EVen the teacher! One day, he got so mad at them that he went up to me and said "Let's just not talk to eachother for a while." I didn't agree with him and we kept talking to eachother. But, that was a while ago. There is only one person now who thinks we're dating. One of the most popular guys who could be spreading it. Thank you so much. But what should I do about it?

Leave him alone

I'm so sorry this is happening to you. It's definitely hurtful. But from what you've said it sounds like he isn't mature enough to stand by you as a friend.

If he doesn't respect you and your friendship enough to be kind to you in public, he is definitely not someone you should spend any time or thought on. Don't make excuses for his behaviour. You define how people treat you. If you continue to spend time with him in private while he treats you like that in public you will only end up feeling bad about yourself.

I appreciate everyone helping. Thank you so much. I guess I should just leave him alone. I think I deserve a bit better than this. Nothing is worse than a fake friend. :( Thanks guys

And I want to thank you because I went up to him and found out that that's EXACTLY the reason why he's "Mad" at me. Thanks so much. You guys helped me a lot.

your welcome

I hope he decides that your friendship is important enough for you two to be friends at all times, regardless who is around. But if not, then I agree with Ali that he isn't worth the time.
