Recently, I decided to unfriend a friend of mine who has never responded via phone, text, email, facebook, blogspot, or any other form of contact I’ve tried to make in the last year. She responded once, and it was a shallow lie I knew she wouldn’t follow up on. “Hey let’s get together soon I mean it!”
Okay, I didn’t unfriend, but I’m upset, because I think basic friend protocol is you make an effort to reciprocate in some way when a friend tries to make contact with you. Let’s be honest. It takes five seconds. Are you really that busy? Are you? Are you?
Am I wrong in thinking this? The answer is no, but I’ll let you comment yourself below. Is she a good friend? Not at all, not to me, and I’m not the only one she does this to. She does this to other people that care about her.
All I’m saying is I have other things to do than chase blue marlins in the sea that won’t bite.
