Friend or not?
I recently met a new person who enjoys horses, has some knowledge of them and we seemed to click as friends. I have two horses so I invited this person over a few times to get to know them better. They seemed to enjoy hanging out with me and I had fun too. Then, they recently got their own horse. Now I'm not hearing from them at all. I realize that they want to spend time with their own horse but I'm feeling forgotten. I don't want to be pushy and be the one who tries to keep in contact if they don't want to so I'm not making much of an attempt to call them. While I'm happy for them to have gotten their first horse, I'm feeling like the friendship has gone by the wayside. I'd like to keep the door open on this to let this person know that if they still want to be friends, I'd like that but I'm having a hard time knowing just how to do that. Anyone else have a situation like this? What did you do and how did it turn out?
