It’s 10 years that we’ve been friends. And yet I haven’t been able to get him to spend more than one night with me while he’s been home. I know we’ve both been a bit rubbish at keeping in touch while he’s away, but it’s always been the same – we hang out loads and catch up while he’s home.
Either (a) I’m paranoid; (b) I’ve done something to piss him off; or (c) he just doesn’t want to hang out with me. Obviously the easiest way to find out would be to ask. But I’m afraid that if the answer is (b) and I don’t know what I’ve done, that’ll make it worse. And if the answer is (c), what then?
He has more power than most to affect my mood.
