Is it rude for an online friend to message your friends?

How would you feel if your online friend went through your friends on social media, and started to message your best friend, opening the conversation by saying you have had a really tough time recently?

I feel like it goes against discretion and it's super rude.
Idk, it's a bit odd. Doesn't matter if they're online or offline. If I tell someone I'm having a hard time in private, it isn't right to tell other people not knowing if I've shared that with them.

I am not sure rude is the right word, was thinking more like creepy. I think I would put an end to that friendship.
It is very rude and an invasion of privacy. The only excuse for contacting my friends is if you're planning a surprise party for me and want to invite them.

Yes that would definitely be very strange behaviour

I never get that involved with people online
Stalker alert! Yikes!

Fuck definitely
Creepy af. They're insinuating themselves into your life without your permission. That screams of stalker behavior. Reminds me of that movie, Single White Female.

If we're just "friends" I wouldn't care. Sounds like he needed to vent.🤷🏼‍♀️

@Peaches Vent about your personal problems instead of their own?
Peaches · F
@Memez You didn't say that in your question.😯 No, I wouldn't like that either.

@Peaches Maybe the way I wrote it wasn't very clear but I said b the opening conversation is about your tough time recently :(

That's stalker-like behaviour and a big betrayal of trust. Flags don't get much redder than that.
Talking about you?
I wouldn’t like it much
They need to be taught some boundaries

Yeah that’s super weird and invasive
SweetSeptember · 36-40, F
Very disrespectful!!

@angel123 Even when they mention things to your friend you didn't want anyone to know?

I would agree with you. That’s overstepping [b]several[/b] boundaries. 😳
