There was this friend i used to have that always argue with me on any issue that i brought up,politics or business anything,he was fond of opposing me.I started to wonder why he was doing that but i couldn't get anything out of it, but suddenly,he just disappeared and he doesn't call anymore,i sent e-mails to him but he never replied any? Should i leave such a person alone or go ahead and look for him?

Oh, wow, your last comment about following him to Africa is pretty funny. Well, it looks like you already made up your mind, so really I guess what I'm about to say is going to seem redundant, but so be it. It sounds like he's definitely got a lot on his mind, so certainly just let him be and see if he comes back into your life. If not, then, well, obviously you don't need a nay-sayer like him around anymore. People who argue simply for the sake of arguing tend to get on my nerves. If you are passionate about something in particular and want to stand your ground, then certainly, by all means, argue away, but if you just want to play "The Devil's Advocate" then count me out. That's what I think anyway. I just recently had to let a long-term friendship go because she began to get offended by who I am and have always been as a person (reasons that I thought were why we became friends in the first place), and she began to psycho-analyze everything I said or did. I just simply told her that she shouldn't tell me anything about anything anymore, because she obviously didn't care what I thought about it. She thought this was childish of me. I think it's just simply the truth as I see it, and if you can't handle the truth, don't ask. Anyway, I didn't respond to her remark about claiming that I was being childish, and she hasn't talked to me sense. So be it.

Most of the time people accusing others of been childish are the real suckers,i'm sorry to use this language but i feel people should just think before they talk and stop hurting others feelings,well for me, i'm not really bothered about things like that. Thanks for your contribution anyway and have a good day.

Well, thank you for saying what you said. I don't know where you're from, but here in the USA, there are much worse things you can call a person than "sucker," so I am not offended by your language at all. Even if you said something worse, I still wouldn't have been offended. I am not at all offended by the truth. Liars are far more offensive, don't you think? Anyway, I'm glad I could help you.

Yeah, I'd just let him be. There must be a good reason why he isn't responding anymore. He might be busy, or in another place, or internet went down, and lots more. I could just speculate why he was opposing you most of the time. But for now, I'd just let it go. Who knows? He may come back soon. Take care.

Maybe,i hear that his girl frien traveled to the States and he might just be too alone to handle the kitchen,cleaning etc So he might just move somewhere else.

maybe he just needs his time alone right now. just leave him alone for a moment after that, try to reach him again. Maybe he just in a problem and doesn't want you to know it.. you'll know :) good luck and have a nice day :)

Your friend is fun to be with. If you ask me i don't want to have a friend who always agree with me. That is boring. I like opinionated friends. I like your friend. There will never be a dull moment with him.
