How Do You Unfriend a Person?

This is how it's done on Facebook, apparently. How do you do it? Just block? Stop taking calls? Stop answering emails? Do tell me. Mail me if you want to be discreet about it.

Yup..I would take the the soft hints style rather than being blunt about it.

Sue said...

~nm -- How, exactly?

I don't need to do much. It's written all over my face.

same as D. although i can be rather cold when i have to. i stop making plans to meet and while i take calls, i dont really make any of my own. but mostly its my demeanour

I stop taking initiatives to keep the relationship going. I still take calls, but I don't initiate them, I don't volunteer information about what I am up to these days. I let the relationship fizzle out. In short I take the chicken's way out :P

There is only one relationship I terminated with a decisive letter and that was with my ex-boyfriend in college days. But that is the ONLY way to terminate a romantic relationship in my opinion. Clean breaks, don't keep the other party hanging. General friendships don't fall under that category I think.

Like D and MM.

While I pick up calls. I mostly don't call back or invite them again. They get the hint.

Everybody -- Thanks for writing in. I still don't know what my 'procedure' is but I found your responses quite thought-provoking.
