Here is my dilemma. You remember that mean girls post from a few months back?
Recently, I found myself deleting a LOT of people from my friends' lists on my social networking sites. What's the point of giving so many people public access to my personal life? Especially when I don't even talk to half of them, or haven't actually spoken/communicated with some of them in months, even years? I deleted over 70 people from myspace, and over 30 from facebook. (Facebook is a little different because it's mostly Montreat friends, and sometimes I only see them once a year if I'm lucky. That's just the way summer camp goes.)
So, among the people I deleted was one of these girls who, as I like to say, kicked me out of the clubhouse. She hasn't returned any of my phone calls in months (I eventually stopped calling), turned down all my invitations to hang out, and basically any communication I've had with her has been cold. I took the hint. She doesn't want to be my friend. Moving on.
Well, after deleting her, I get a message that says, "Seriously?"
That's it. Seriously.
I reply, "Is this in response to something in particular?"
She replies: "I didn't know it was like that. I forgot you are still in middle school. I wish you all the best." Then she blocks me from her profile so I can't even respond. Seriously.
Umm...I'm a little confused. After all, she made it clear she didn't want to be my friend. I took the hint. Why is she so upset that I deleted her from freaking myspace??? Seriously!!!
What I want to know from you is this - should I respond? I feel inclined to explain that she was just one of many "friends" I deleted. I have the urge to remind her this is what she wanted in the first place. I'm curious as to why it makes her so upset to lose me as an internet friend but not one in real life. But do you think it will do any good? I mean, seriously?
