Well if he needs you surely he wouldnt avoid you would he? Try speaking to him , who cares what others think , if you like him then who's to interfere? ;)
(continued from previous question) But we have been like best friends forever. But like i said now we aviod eachother. He needs me now. What do i do?
All you can do is be there for him if and when he needs a shoulder to cry on, just let him know that you care and are available for him :))
