Is his message to me a cry for help?

Question - (15 April 2018) 2 Answers - (Newest, 17 April 2018)
A female United States age 30-35, anonymous writes:

It's not that we talked much, but we were friends, well acquaintances at least. Anyway, it's been years since we've talked. We were in college like 9-10 years ago, but friends on social media. Anyway, out of the blue, he randomly sends me a message thanking me for being a friend and how he appreciated for acknowledging him.

Now granted, we were more friends of friends, he was was a cool, genuine guy. I just find it odd that he just says this out of the blue. I don't want to jump to conclusions, but I feel like he's saying this as way to close things off, like he's making peace with life. Maybe I'm thinking too much into this, I'm just worried if he means to end his life or something. Silly, I know.

Anyway, what should I do or should I do anything?

aunt honesty agony auntThat is a very random message to receive I would probably think the worst as well. I would simply reply and ask him how he is and if everything is okay?

Chancing his arm and throwing caution to the wind I reckon, its rude to do this with no explanation, just that he's thanking you for being a friend many years ago. How weird. You should say Thankyou to him for thanking you and don't give it another thought, if he's being genuine he will except that and won't kill himself! I think he's lonely, but that's just my opinion!
