Need advice on a friendship

im feeling a little distraught and need some friendly advice.

. sorry if this seems HS but Facebook is a big part of peoples lives and it is a way to keep in contact with friends.

just recently my friend deleted me off facebook.

I think you indicated that he was the one who ended your relationship.

I agree that his message is pretty clear.

You're really close friends but haven't said a word to each other in 3 months? The time he stopped talking to you also corresponds to the time he got a new girlfriend and broke off the relationship he had with you? You also say you know the new girlfriend- have you spoken with her since they started dating?

Please don't take this the wrong way, but it sounsd like he's trying to distance himself from you/end the friendship. I don't know if it's because of the new girlfriend, or for other reasons, but IMO, he's sending you a pretty clear message.

not to "argue " or anything we're really good close friends despite all the sexual history before hand. so i dont think its simply because i havent spoken to him in awhile. and why would he delete me and not his past gf before me"? just thinking out loud.

Since he stopped being friends IRL then it follows that he would eventually stop being FB friends too. My guess is that he finds it awkward to be friends with a former lover.

facebook is fickle.

I have deleted people for as little as not keeping in contact with them.
