    Short version: playing a video game, dad called me in the middle from abroad bc I had asked him to visit a certain shop for me . Lost the game because I was on the phone. He got mad bc we lost. I got mad bc i felt it was disrespectful to my dad. Then he said I've had this attitude that i think I'm better than others. So maybe he also got more mad that I didn't care so much about losing the game and tske it super seriously? I then got very angry and cursed/shouted bc I felt he's been disrespectful to my dad in the past very indirectly and I was bottling it up (although for sure he wouldn't see it as disrespectful).

    Anyway, I've been reflecting and i don't think that's true. Ive maybe been acting differently with him bc i dont agree with some of the things he's been saying/doing recently.

    I'm having lingering feelings from the fight of feeling like the bad guy.

    Sorry if the grammar is bad. I lost the first version.

    He has no boundaries
    He appears to be addicted to a bloody game
    He is immature
    He is inconsiderate of others and only cares for things that are of importance to HIM
    He is not as interested in this so called "friendship" as you are
    You don't agree with the things hes doing

    Give me one good reason why you want this friendship?

    You seriously fought over a video game?

    Judging by how mad he got I thought it had to be over some thing that was actually important.

    So: Why was it you still want to be his friend?

    The comment you made earlier - how a true friend wouldn't ghost - is sticking with me.
    Even if one needs space to cool off, shouldn't one be verbal about it?

    Is it too rash of me to want to let it all go simply for being ignored and left to feel guilty?

    Its not too rash to look after your own best interests. (if you don't do it who will?) So... let him go, block and delete the douche bag and get on with doing things that will introduce you to new people who are a lot more mature and capable of being a good friend. He's not even a good person.

    but twice he's just disappeared for like a year.
    Turd!

    For anyone still reading: it's been a bit over two months and I'd like to reach out again.
    Though I think this is it. If he doesn't respond then I feel I need to write it off forever. Or at least forget about it completely.

    I guess I have my mind made up - sharing anyway.
