Hello Iwanttodie, and a warm welcome to the forums.

It's so disappointing that the only person you believed you were friends with, decides to ghost you and it can be quite annoying because there would be many times when you have supported them in either having to make a decision or once they have been able to support them, and now not have the decency to let you know why they have suddenly done this.

People tend to change over time, although we may not recognise it, but their circumstances may change beyond any knowledge that we know of, or they could be having problems and for once not let you know for fear of embarrassment, something that's never happened before or perhaps they have posted on a social site which they don't normally do without being able to talk with you.

You have made friends here and only if you want you may want to tell us about 2011 so we can help you further.

Best wishes.

im doing very well financially and have great kids but I ha e nothing outside that and don’t know how to meet friends - I’ve tried but no one really likes me ; perhaps I’m not likeable .
