Learn the difference between "friend" and "acquaintance"!

Posted on Thu, Nov 25, 2010 at 4:02 PM

To the girl who's just not taking a hint: We're not friends, we haven't been for a while. No we didn't have a fight, but we just grew apart from one other over the years. We're merely acquaintances now, but yet you seem to think we're good friends. To be honest, I don't even like you that much.

I can count on one hand how many times we've hung out in the past year. Most of those few times, we were only together because your brother (whom you're close with) happens to be my friend- We were hanging together THROUGH HIM. There was one time -ONE!- that I hung out with you one-on-one. And it was less than thrilling. Does it look like we're friends? I don't think so!

Yet you keep trying to rekindle this "friendship" we had. "Hey what are you doing this weekend? We should do something" you'll post on my fb wall or text me once or twice a month. For the past 5 months I have given you "excuses" to get you off my back. I am really hoping you'll finally get the hint and give up, so I don't have to give you the awkward "(your name), you really have to realize that we're not friends, we're acquaintances. I don't want to hang with you anymore because we've drifted apart."

Hints: I don't write on your fb wall (I didn't even send you a bday wish on your bday and I go on fb every day), I don't text you on my own, I post frequent photos of my social times with OTHER PEOPLE on fb and I know you see them in your newsfeed (and I'm sure you're thinking "why wasn't I invited?"), any time I run into you on the street I make the convo short and sweet and move on my merry way... lastly, ever wonder why even though I live one street away from you, yet we still never seem to hang?? (Clearly, distance isn't the reason!!) Really though, YOU NEED TO MOVE ON AND LET ME GO. —Wow that was a long rant!
