  1. I have an internet/college friend that I had became friends with less than a year ago. It started with just chatting about school assignments before getting on a more personal level. We found out that we both are suffering from depression and we both survived our suicide attempts, and because neither of us felt comfortable to constantly tell our own friends about how *** we're doing, we would confide in each other if we need emotional support. Whilst doing that, I try to be mindful of him because he may be dealing with his own *** at the same time, and I don't want to induce any additional stress/distractions if he's going through things in the moment. We have met up twice in person and both occasions went really well, we kept talking for hours and had great laughs together. Whenever we text several messages at once, he might take longer to respond (sometimes up to 6 weeks) but whenever he does, he always replies to one text at a time (not many of my other friends do that), and I would do the same for his because 1) I genuinely care for him and want to show him support during hard times, and 2) I really appreciate how he really tries to listen and give his best insights 2 months ago, he asked me how I'm doing, and after updating him and asking him back, my texts were left unopened, and still are to this day. He lives by himself, and I know he goes through periods of really dark times, so I would check his social media status occasionally just to see if he's (literally) still alive. Even though he hasn't opened my texts, I sometimes see him post on his IG story about once a month (we still follow each other), so even though I don't understand why he ignored my texts, seeing him active gave me a peace of mind that he's at least ok. I know he probably has closer friends to talk to, and because we only recently became friends, so I don't want to be overstepping my boundaries by excessively texting to check in. My stance is that if he doesn't have time for me now because of what's going through his head, I completely understand and am ready to give him that space. However, instead of at least reading the texts, I was just left hanging there for 2 months, so I'm a bit confused as to whether he still wants to chat with me and continue the friendship What should I do? Should I reach out? Or should I leave it and see what happens? I am not at all trying to point fingers, I'm just lost as to what to do
