I’ll try to keep this as short as possible, but I really need help. Basically, my ex-boyfriend and I broke up a month ago after being in a long-distance relationship for a year (and friends living in the same place prior to that). We had talked about marriage a lot but felt like our relationship couldn’t really progress when we didn’t actually live in the same place and felt that neither one of us were at points in our life where we could easily quit our jobs/school to move (we’re both 24/25). I eventually offered to move, but he felt like he wasn’t ready to have me sacrifice all of my previous life plans for him. He broke up with me but kept insisting that he wanted to remain friends. I was less enthusiastic about this plan given how difficult it can be to let go of a relationship in that type of situation but eventually agreed. He is a good guy, so I thought that if we both made an effort to be conscientious of the other’s feelings, things would be fine.
Everything was going well until this week when I ended up getting stuck overnight at an airport ~45 minutes away from his house. It was a complicated situation, but I basically needed to get from one airport to another one approximately an hour away. Because the flight cancellation was due to weather, the airline wouldn’t help me. The rental car companies were completely sold out of cars, so I was left as a 24-year-old female stuck in a city at midnight without much money trying to get to where I needed to be the following day. I tried to contact him to find out what he knew about the public transportation in the area (I also don’t have a smart phone, and the information booths were all closed since it was late). He completely ignored me. Needless to say, I was incredibly hurt and angry and expressed as much to his voicemail the following day. To me, if you say that you want to be friends, you should follow through and behave like an actual friend. I know that he might have had reasons for not replying, but he wouldn’t even talk to me to tell me what those reasons were. He hasn’t replied to any communication from me since Tuesday now, not even to ask to be left alone. I would like to try to work through this stuff and actually be friends with him but obviously can’t do that if he’s not interested. Because a few other mutual friends also couldn’t get in touch with him, I started to worry about what might be going on last night. It’s so incredibly frustrating to be worried about someone who is likely just ignoring you. But because I’m both worried and still want to deal with this stuff so that we can be friends, I keep trying to contact him. I know that I’m probably just being annoying by continuing this, but I don’t understand why he can’t just reply saying absolutely anything. So:
(1) Please pray for both of us. It’s a tough situation no matter what and has gotten a lot tougher over the course of this week.
(2) Should I even bother trying to continue getting in touch with him? He doesn’t live terribly far from his parents and talks to them quite a bit, so I think that they would probably figure out if there was something really the matter. I'm just not positive about that.
