My friend and I got into an argument. Now he doesn't talk to me. We had a few before and things would go back to normal after a day or so. But now I don't know seems different. I think I went too far and I apologized so many times. His birthday is in a three days and I want to wish him a happy birthday but I don't know if that a good idea.

I think yes, a heartfelt and sincere birthday message without mentioning the argument or apologies.

You wouldn't want it in the forefront of his mind. If you want to refer to it I think do so as a hope we can get together soon, or move on type message.

That's my take on it. I've had to do this many times with my sister. We have massive blow ups and the 'I'm not talking to you' episodes at least once every 18 months or so.

I hope it works out for you.

I agree with Nienna. Make the birthday wish and see what happens.

keep it simple and wish the happy b-day. I haven't talked to my brother in over a year and I just consider it too far gone.

I agree with the others. It really is worth a try.
