There is an old proverb in India, your real friends laugh with you and cry with you. This age of social media helps us so to filter the true friends and keep them close and keep the casual acquaintainces that way.
But they do leave you wondering what is their actual purpose behind reaching out to someone. Being a keeper I often feel tickled by these people.
Whey you say you want only close friends in your circle, those who actually believe in friendship they echo your words, and the minute you open your door and let them in they forget you. 🙂
Why do they reach out then? Just for fun or pass their time, or they dont even understand what they speak? Now, IF THEY WERE ACTUALLY FRIENDS, FB REMINDS EVERYONE ABOUT SPECIAL EVENTS IN THEIR FRIEND’S LIVES, IT IS NOT WP, IT FLASHES IT IN QUITE PERSUASIVE MANNER, SO WHEN YOU CAN SEE IT, SO CAN THEY, YET THEY DONT FEEL LIKE WISHING YOU 🙂 AND TRY TO MAKE YOU BELIEVE THEY ARE YOUR “INTIMATE” FRIENDS. OH BOY! THANK GOD THAT I JOINED FB LAST.
Now I am quite forgiving and forgetting type, but some things do leave a little itch, and then when you notice them remembering the birthdays of others you become really suspicious about their honesty and sincerity, dont you?
