As the election ended, I filled my Facebook page with more complaints than usual going on wild rants to the point where a couple of my friends I talk to on a daily basis asked me if something was going on. I said yes, I can't take continuing to work the way I do; I'll be worked to death. At the same time, my friend count largely decreased. At the beginning of the week I had 130ish friends, and now it's down to 124.
It really amazes me how I can't say something on my page unless someone agrees with it, and if they don't agree with it they de-friend me. Really, it's like, who made them Facebook God to judge what gets posted and what doesn't? I wonder, if my statuses were filled with something they rooted for, would they like everything I post? I don't de-friend someone just because they may not think like me.
It's usually these people that claim other people are "immature" which is the funny part to me. To get to the point, while my friend list was significantly decreasing, I noticed one guy who removed me was someone who's been hitting on me like none other. I tried being nice to him in the past and to reject him kindly, but every now and then he would send me these unwanted flirty inbox messages. I think he knows why I don't like him as more than friends.
He's told me before, "It's because I'm ________, isn't it?" Not only that, he's got a lot of children and baggage with him. I'm not attracted to his ethnicity and I didn't want to be mean about it. Just like people have their preferences in dating, I have mine.
So I couldn't believe all it took me was to have a different political viewpoint to get him to stop trying get in my pants. Obviously, even on here some people have said they would write off others who don't agree with them politically. Let me ask those who write off people just because they're a certain political party: Do people not have their own right to vote just as you do? Wouldn't it be a dictatorship to attempt to force someone to choose one person they don't want to root for?
Dating is all about compromises and acceptance. I'm sure that person has something they don't like about you and managed to accept it. For those who have been trying to get rid of someone who won't stop bothering them, simply have a different viewpoint in politics than them since it's quite apparent that a majority cannot get along when it comes to this topic. I didn't have to weed out the "non-friends," they deleted themselves for me. Saved me some work!
Can you think of other ways to get someone you don't want around to stop bothering you without dragging others into it or resorting to violence?
Be really annoying as well. Never fails. If someone's annoying you, be 10 times more annoying back. Works every time for me.
