Yeah? Man.....half his luck, I say.
Sever, he's being a child and it's all of his own doing. You can't make him be friends, so I really wouldn't bother with it any further. It's a shame that it ended badly, but it is what it is. I'll diverge from my old mate Larry a little here and state that the role of "parenting" is not your responsibilty. He's a big boy and if he can't cope with this then he has little scope to cope with anything
through the rest of his life. Take on the role of "parent" and he'll suck the life blood outta you.....sure and simple.
Maybe I'm too much of a hardarse, but I have little time for attention seekers and ingrates.
Friendship is a two way street, he's disinterested, so there's little you can do. Move on and be happy. :-)
