It became a routine of checking in and asking, “Why won’t you talk to me. What’s wrong.” With only vague replies of “Nothing.” His depressing nature and solidarity from closing completely off from me became too much, I started to avoid him. Avoidance is the penultimate stage before termination occurs, it’s when a relationships stagnation becomes so unpleasant that it is necessary to leave the situation.
