Aspie

I have an aspie close male friend that is going into the Army. He just stopped contacting me, never txts, but I txt him with no response. He does not seem concerned about out conversations anymore or even friendship. Should I be concerned about our friendship or is this just an Aspie's way of dealing with changing his life and it's all about him?

  • Have you directly asked him? It may be he is caught up in the momnent and intends to respond but doesn't get to it. "Is there a reason you don't respond to my texts ? Are we not friends anymore? "

    Very good point. There have been many times in my life when I've been non-responsive, unable to respond to written communication by friends even though I want to.

    Personally, when I get into a mode like that, I really appreciate the people who just pick up the phone and call me. (Not everyone feels the same way, of course.)
  • as an aspie, I know often I will get contacted and read the message ,but at the moment decide to think about how to respond and then forget to.
    As someone else said with an aspie it is best to be direct and ask point blank questions like:
    Are we still friends.
    Is everything alright in your life, need to talk about it?
    Why don't you respond to my messages.
