Inquiring mind want to know…if I have sent someone a friend request on Facebook and I see that they have recently accepted a request from someone on my friend list but have not responded to mine what does that say?
I logged out this morning pondering…
Do they not want to be friends with me?
Is this a cyber dis?
Why do I care? I could theoretically live the rest of my life and be very happy and never cross this person’s path ever again. It’s not like we even run in the same circles or have any outside connections beyond going to the same church. On rare occasions running in to each other when I am out and about grocery shopping or just running the occasional errand.
It feels like a dis. It feels like being ignored and I wonder in this age of social networking and instant messaging if we have lost something in the cyber translation.
Have we lost the art of friendship? Of being neighborly? Of being polite? The personal effort and time it takes to build a relationship with someone is a blessing. I know I have the amazing gift of having many very good and close friends in my life whom I value more than anything.
If you have an issue with your neighbor well, I know what Charles Ingalls would have done. Pa would have walked Half Pint over to the neighbors house and they would have had fresh baked cookies and milk at the kitchen table and discussed the issues between the two of them. Afterward they would have gone fishing down at the creek and all would be right with the word.
So I toss this question out there.
Is it a personal slight when someone you know ignores you on Facebook?
Is it that they are technologically challenged?
Or possibly is it more direct and they simply don’t want to be friends with me on Facebook?
Maybe they don't want to be friends with me in any form what so ever.
I have to wonder as I was having my daily visit to my Facebook page, do I offend?
Do I rub the wrong way?
Is it the way I dress?
Do I not have the right circle of friends?
Do I not live in the proper zip code?
Are my hore’s moaning?
Which they are by the way in a HUGE way, so maybe I am just primed for taking this way to personally But sometime it seems to complicated and just down right to much work.
So what do y’all think?
I really would like to know!
Today I am longing for the simpler life of Little House on the Prairie, but even Walnut Grove had Nellie!
Today I am logging off of Facebook and moving on to something that edifies and uplifts.
