I'm having weird moment, and I'm also feeling rather stupid...
Like many of you, I have a Facebook account. I honestly don't use it as much as others, but I do check it a couple of times a week, and perhaps I'll play a game of Pathwords while waiting for laundry, but that's about it. It's a good way to quickly see what everyone is up to, leave a brief comment or a thumbs up, however, I'm not big on some of the earning points thing, or giving people stuff, chatting, constantly updating, etc. I'm just not that into it, I guess, although it's a good tool for finding long lost friends and family memebers. Here's my question: what do you do when someone is always wanting to chat and you just don't want to or you have no desire to chat with that person, ever? Maybe that sounds kind of brutal, since I did allow this "friend" on my page, but this friend is someone from my past. He was there when I met my husband. He's a nice guy and all, but I'd much rather keep him at a distance... a very far distance, as in the far away state he now lives in. I'm completely good with that. I'm fine with an e-mail every now and then, and perhaps a yearly phone call from him to say how the wife and kids are doing. I'm getting kind of irked because the few times I do check Facebook he chimes in and wants to chat. I kind of freak out and log off quickly. I'm kind of surprised he hasn't tried to phone me. Without me logging onto Facebook at this very moment (because he's logged on), is there a way to block him from seeing when I'm on line?
See, I told you this was stupid. It feels so high school.
We all change and grow in different directions. People change. Life changes. I'm not perfect. Blah, blah, blah. [Insert the appropriate psycho-babble here.] We used to confide in each other about everything when we were much younger, but somewhere along the line we both changed, and now, for me, just even seeing his icon on line in the chat box is like hearing nails on a chalk board... It's really hard to explain why that is without getting too detailed as to why this guy irks me.
Maybe I'm just not cut out for Facebook.
