My son has advised me that the act of un-friending is perceived as "insulting and hurtful." I scoffed, saying it was not seen as a slight, at least not for my generation. But now I have discovered that an old friend of mine has recently un-friended me, and I am indeed insulted and hurt.
To anyone I have un-friended in the past, I'm sorry. And to that one friend who recently un-friended me, just in case she reads this blog from time to time and this might be one of the times: What did I do?
