"Anthony" and I were friends in high school. He graduated a year ahead of me, went one direction, I went another. Last time I saw him was 12 years ago. About four years ago, I friended him on Facebook. We exchanged a handful of messages, catching up on the years, and that was that. Since then, I have always wished him a happy birthday when the notification pops up. Usually I get a "thank you." It's generally the only time during the year he's even active on Facebook.
I did so today, and got the following head-scratching response from him:
"I read your birthday wishes, and I wonder to what extent I still know you. Have you tried to contact me in the past year, other than these two words? I don't believe so. Not that I'm saying I'm not guilty here, because I haven't exactly kept current in your life."
Not sure why, but something about it rubs me the wrong way. Am I being over-sensitive? And what would the proper response be?
Again, please tell me if I'm being over-sensitive. I'm just a little confused about the response he gave me!
