Run for it Marty!

Being de-friended by the ex-girlfriend on Facebook is just about as painful of a trivial thing you can imagine for us Gen-Xers.

Seeing photos of us vanish one-by-one from my shared album then having her completely cut off from me reminds me what it must have felt like for Marty McFly when his family photo started fading before his very eyes due to the possibility of his (and his siblings') existences coming into question.

My problem is I don't know how to play the guitar or own a DeLorean, so I'm pretty much screwed.

There's still a chance for you, dude, if you can just find a group of Libyan terrorists that want you to build them a bomb.

God, that sucks. Solution: I never friend people I date. A:I don't want to Facebook stalk them ever B: I don't want them to know what I might bitch about. C: Your problem:)

Dude, you hit the nail on the head! I just was on the other end of this scenario this weekend because I couldn't stand the fact that I was wasting an hour a day checking my ex's profile for who the hell knows what to suddenly appear.

After a break-up from a serious relationship, "de-friending" an ex can feel like amputating a gangrenous arm; letting go of something that once seemed so permanent and essential but now is slowly eating away at you.

Good luck. In my experience, cold turkey is the healthiest way to move on.

I could not have said it better myself. I was just ranting on last night to a friend of mine how it feels so weird to have your best friend/significant other simply disappear from your life in an instant... there is not even a paper trail. All you have left is foggy and soggy memories.

Although the circumstances totally suck, I am glad you are blogging again too. I missed you!
