I'm beginning to think facebook is a bad thing. Twice I've found old friends from 10 or 20 years ago, friended them, and had it result in -- disillusionment? One person I used to very close to, although we never met in person, and I missed him a lot when we lost touch. I used to think we would get along so well, be such good friends, as adults. Now we're fb friends and all I learn about him is that he's this ultraconservative Catholic and church is basically his whole life. Bleh. It's tainted that sweet memory of him. The other is my best friend from childhood (I talked about her in the past -- the lawyer-personal-trainer-gorgeous-blond?)
. I friended her, she's nearing the end of a pregnancy, I got annoyed by her constant updates counting down to when she meets her baby (because WTF, why does a personal trainer/yoga teacher get voluntarily INDUCED??) so I decided to "hide" her until after she had her baby. Then yesterday I figured out that she's DEFRIENDED me. So now this historic, huge relationship from my golden childhood has ended with a FACEBOOK DEFRIENDING. I keep obsessing over why should would do this and should I write her a note if only to say "have a nice life"? It's so depressing to think about this lame website as the "end" to any significant relationship in my life. I wish I'd never found them!
