I can't forgive my friend for storming off our Zoom call

DEAR DEIDRE: I CAN’T forgive my mate for cutting me off in the middle of our Zoom call.

Two months ago I was chatting with this friend when we had a silly misunderstanding and he stormed off the chat.

He seems to think everything is back to normal, but I can’t move on from this.

I’m a 28-year-old man and he’s 27. We’ve been friends for six years.

He flounced off the call because he thought I’d invited him for dinner on a particular date, but then I mentioned I had tickets for a gig that night.

He was hurt, but I’m certain he got the date wrong.

I feel he really over-reacted and don’t understand his behaviour.

Now when we speak he acts like it never happened, but I still feel upset with him and can’t forget it.

He hasn’t apologised as he thinks it’s my fault.

DEIDRE SAYS: Maybe what’s happened has shown you there’s a fundamental difference between you and your mate. This can be very unsettling as it makes you question your friendship.

He reacts strongly in the moment, then moves on, while you tend to dwell on things.

You need to talk to him again and explain that you are still not happy, and why.

My support pack, Rows With Friends, contains helpful advice.
