as the world turns

isn't it funny how even if someone unfriends you whom you had been wanting to unfriend for awhile but hadn't because you hate to hurt anyone's feelings you still feel a little indignant? I suppose I should follow my instincts on these things and unfriend first so as not to risk being the dumpee.

that's so true! i unfriended someone this morning, feeling like a jerk about it, but am secretly relieved. no, it wasn't you. *g* if that person had unfriended me first, though, i'd have felt miffed. :D

wow that's an interesting online-to-real-life relationship ratio. I don't think I've ever experienced anything quite like that.

I'm one of those online curmudgeons who believes that online is real life but just a different facet of it. I've made a lot of online friendships that have been sustaining and nurturing without my ever having met the person face to face. I think by now I've met most of my internet friends, but still not all of them.

but 'friend' and 'lj friend' definitely are not equivalent. still, I get a tiny ego blow knowing that someone I didn't know from adam anyway doesn't want to read me. how could they not??

what's funny is i vaguely recall you posting something like this awhile back & both times i went to my info page to see if i've been recently "dumped." so i am a strange little monkey myself.

& i recently unfriended someone but didn't write to tell her because:
a. she probably would not care (but i suspect she'd be having those "i should've unfriended you first" feelings)
b. she has a gazillion friends on her lj
c. all she seems to talk about is the outfit she wore that day.

anyway, i enjoy your daily musings, so don't unfriend me, erik. ;) or you can, but i'll still read yr page...

oh I hadn't given a single thought to unfriending you. you're too interesting!

I will have to tend to my outfit a little more though, just because I enjoy annoying the people I like. today I wore my buffalo jeans and my neighborhoodies 'san francisco' hoodie. of course I bet your unfriend wouldn't wear the same thing for seven days straight.

I have.

LOLz, 7 days straight ... yes, me too. often. alas...

and you're right. she would disapprove. *yawn* which is why i had to let her go.
