A bit of history to explain our current relationship:
I met a person recently over a dating app, talked a bit and then met for a date which ended just as a friendly chat, and due to distancing there wasn't a chance to try to see if there's any interest of getting closer than just friends. Later we talked about having a nice time and I mentioned that I would like to continue the friendship and also something more. Answer was that it isn't a good time since they ended their previous relationship recently.
For few more weeks we chatted, shared memes and projects we're working on, and decided to spend more time together, having few coffees and walking around the city for hours to just avoid groups of people.
We can't just spontaneously meet since we live a bit over an hour drive away and they fill their schedule in advance a lot. (I tried to organize the last meet for "the next day" but it was rejected for that reason, and they imediately found an option that works, so it doesn't seem like just an excuse to reject everything)
I had some plans for next weekend so we said we'll talk later about some other time, and then the actual situation started
Their childhood pet died. I offered my condolences, and let them know I'm available for them, to which the reply is that they're holding ok, they'll just focus on the work, and they changed the topic to me. After a few more messages I asked if they want to meet in few days, since when the same thing happened to me I wanted some company, and the answer was no, they don't want anyone around now. After that I've left them alone and there was no contact back.
In the mean time they adopted another pet from a shelter which sadly passed away just few days later. I saw it on social media, left "reacts" there but here's where I'm stuck.
How to continue the conversation with my friend? I thought I'd offer my condolences again, but I don't know what to say that wouldn't be exactly the same as last time. Then I thought of just starting a conversation like nothing happened, send some memes, ask them how they are, but I thought that might just be ignoring the situation and seem cold, so I went here to ask the question.
My main goal is to let them know I'm still there for them, that we can talk about anything if they want, but also that if they want to be let alone I can do that, I'm just not sure if they don't want to meet people, or also not talk with them too.
Second goal is to do that in a way that doesn't seem like I'm overanalizing the whole situation and focusing too much since it's just a few month old friendship where we met twice. (I know I am doing it, but I don't want it to be obvious)
