Need Advice.

So I have a friend who all of the sudden decides to be angry over the stupidest thing. He said I blew him off and we didn't even have plans or anything. We've been friends for like 3 years and nothing like this has happened before. Anyways the story:

So I go to his house for dinner and I leave right after because I have plans to get tat with another friend and he knows that. We go back to her place and wait for this person to retrieve something. 10:30pm rolls around and that person still isn't here so we wait a little more and I get a phone call to go to some going away party thing. We weren't going to go but the shop closes at 12 am so we figured it is too late and decide to go to the party. We arrive and a little later I get a call from the guy asking about tat and I say I didn't do it cause there wasn't enough time. Then he asks where I am at and I tell him at a friends house. A little later after that he texts my friend saying, "Way to tell me you guys are going to get tats but instead go to a party. Not cool. It's like you don't want to hang around me anymore." Next day or should I say a few hours later I wake up to a call but it only rang once so I couldn't answer. It was him. A good 5 mins after that it rings again and by the time I pick my phone up it stopped. I waited about 10 mins and decided wth I'll call back. No answer. I do some lurking and he posted something saying "to all the people who think its chill to blow me off, f all of you" I messaged him and there hasn't been anything replied.

Honestly I think this is stupid since he has done the same thing many times the only difference is I don't really care. Plus he could have came except he doesn't have a car at the moment and it is too far of a drive to go get him and bring him back. In conclusion what can I do? On a side note he has been acting different recently, like he is on his man period.

just guessing, but he either

a. is going through something personal/family/career or life decision, etc. In which case he may want to talk or get support and doesn't know how to ask (most guys don't)

or

b. he 'likes' you? That can happen suddenly with old friends. (Danger, will robinson!!)



unless it really is that time of the month

Sounds like he's feeling insecure about something. My guess is pgoat's B plan.

Insecure possibly, really touchy most likely now. Like I said he's been acting really weird lately probably because all the stupid stuff he's been doing lately. The other day we were going to the track and he got all pissed off because we didn't stop at the bike store to get a brake lever but instead stopped to visit someone. He threw the biggest hissy fit and was yellin/cursing. I was about ready to punch him in the face. We got to the track and it was closed. He said he felt like a pos.

Hmmm. Depending on how serious his issues are he may really need a friend now. You may have to wait till he's ready to talk or for the right moment to ask him what his problem has been lately. The best path for you might be to simply be as patient as you can be with him. So, try not to punch him in the face if you can help it Unless, of course, he asks you to do that, as a friend...
