Friendship Fail or Facebook Fail?
Because I make friends easily and love people, I'm always distressed when someone I've come to care about just up and disappears. Like someone I'll just call "G".
G wrote me a very sweet private message in Facebook, having seen me around both the Stevie Riks page and the Groovy Reflections page. He asked if we could become friends and I said sure. We wrote privately, mostly about music and friendship, and he friended Nettl. He was always upbeat and fun to talk to. He had a band and enjoyed sharing videos. We had similar musical tastes. In fact, we had a whole slew of things in common; every day held another surprise. The last comment I saw from him was earlier in the week when we discussed Shepherd's Pie (he's from Scotland). Today, having not heard from him in a day or two, I decided to go to his page and drop him a private message. He was nowhere to be found. He'd deactivated his account.
I'm so sad! I hope nothing's wrong, and that if he comes here and reads this he'll email me. Although we hadn't been friends for very long, I had a feeling this friendship was the real thing. I'm seriously hoping that this is a screw-up on Facebook's part and that he'll reactivate account. Whatever your reason for leaving, G, know that I'm still your friend and am here if you need me.
