Facebook Notifications!

I can’t stand the way facebook notifies the entire world of anything you click on. Sometimes I get random people facebooking me to say inappropriate things because I’m single. I’m not sure what it is about me that causes them to think that it’s okay to be inappropriate…as a matter of fact, it’s sort of a slap in the face. It’s like having married guys hit on a single girl. Some women seem to think that is flattering. Personally, I think they are saying, “hey. I love my wife but I noticed you were single and pathetic and thought you might want to stroke my ego by giving me a little bit of somethin’ somethin’ on the side with little or no regard as to how it affects you! Okay?”…oh yeah! Great! Thanks!…I’ve been really looking for some meaningless, self image sucking events in my life to enhance the quality in it with some crap!…I suppose I shouldn’t concern myself with putting the blame on myself in this regard though. I guess the person who is married and looking for someone else, is the one with the problem. Saying “no, thank you” is really the only job of the healthy, reasonable minded single girl. All else is extraneous fluff because anything you say to the person to try to make him understand that what he is doing isn’t right will be retold to some girl who will say “sure! I’d love to have an affair with you” with the words, “that Calia is psycho” on the end of the sentence…Note: anyone who has ever ended a relationship, has at one time been called “psycho”. No exceptions! Everyone will retell their story in a way that reflects the other as the bad guy/girl!…It’s just human nature to NEVER be wrong!…ironically since it’s pretty much human nature to pretty much always be wrong….

So what about these facebook notifications? I decided to simply remove the relationship status from my info all together! I assumed that “Status: Nothing”, wouldn’t create a buzz! Why would facebook even care if I had no relationship status at all?…Well! Apparently it does. It cares about absolutely nothing! Now I have to explain myself…again…because explaining myself is MY LIFE!

As I thought about it, I came to recognize that I really don’t owe anyone any huge explanations as to why my life is the way it is. I guess I care too much about what other people think?…Why do I care at all what a computer application thinks of me?…And actually, it’s my own fault for telling it anything to begin with. Let this be a lesson to me. If I stop sharing as much information in the first place, little changes won’t show up with a huge red heart notification that force conversation on the topic.

Status: hanging out with a nice guy

…no need to ask for any more information than that!…

Status: Deleting any stranger from facebook who would send me any email with content that he wouldn’t send to his own mother.
