Pretend Friends

I'm sure we all have at least one. Someone on our Friends List who isn't really a friend.

I have one.

Pure circumstance threw us together. I guess we both felt obligated to be each other's "friend" on Facebook.  I don't know if they feel the same way, but you know what, I don't like them. Not one little bit.

They're one of those people that gives off that air of superiority. Always has some sort of snide comment to make on your status directed at you.  Basically saying you're an idiot without ACTUALLY saying that.  You can just picture them sitting at their computer with a look of satisfaction on their face when they post their comment. Because, you know, they're SOOOO much better than you.  Someone who makes me feel totally inadequate at least once every day.

So why don't I delete them, you ask?

We have quite a few mutual friends and I'm afraid that I will alienate myself from those mutual friends....they're people I actually like.  I don't know if I can be bothered with the backlash that might come my way.

So I suck it up and try to ignore it....but it's getting harder. I'm "this" close to telling this "friend" to fuck off.

Tell me if you have a "friend" like that, either on Facebook, Twitter or even in real life....while I go off and drink a cup of cement and harden the fuck up.


  1. Oh yes, yes I do. I could of written that blog word for word Marti! Sometimes I think to myself, just delete her and be done with it but then I'd feel bad and have to see her comments on mutual friends stuff anyway. I could block but... I dunno!

  2. I know, it's such a hassle. So I just suck it up.
