I Was Betrayed By Someone I Thought Was A Friend

When that happens, to me, it becomes clear that we apparently never were friends. They might've been [b]my[/b] friend, but I clearly wasn't ever [b]their[/b] friend. So why did they even bother with me, especially if we were "friends" for so long or even appeared to be close? Who the hell knows? But honestly, who the hell even cares? It really doesn't matter because if they truly valued me as a friend, they wouldn't have just discard me like garbage. If there was some issue they had with something I had said or done, they would have brought it up to me so we could've talked it over. But none of that matters either. Why would they bother with any of that when I wasn't their friend? Even if we seemed all close, had a mutual admiration for each other or were even affectionate with one another, once they screw me over, it becomes obvious that it isn't real and never was.

I used to get really bent-up over it, especially when it was the most valuable friend I ever made on here who just stopped talking to me one day and eventually blocked me. I closed my account for a few weeks - the first time I ever did that, lol. I guess you could say that has hardened me since then. It taught me that anything can happen, truly. You could be all sweet and giddy with a friend one minute and then find yourself blocked by them the next. Nothing surprises me anymore. Even if some of the closest friends on here I've had for years end up blocking me without a word one day, I won't be too shocked.

That's actually happened a couple times since then. It's a bummer at first, but then once I get reflecting on it, it's "Oh well, there goes another. Who's next?" Oftentimes, I notice little things that hint they never cared for me that much in hindsight anyway, lol. So yeah, why do I want to be in a one-sided friendship with someone? Good riddance. They can go play their little games with someone else now, I'm not going to let it get to me that much anymore. My only regret is that I didn't notice them sooner so that I could've been the one to cut off the relationship or whatever the hell it was.

That’s happened to me a couple of times.
I’d like to think that a long-time friend would at least discuss with me the reason why they felt compelled to block me (if not actually discuss the issue with me)....but it sometimes doesn’t happen that way.
this has happened to me enough times for me to not form close attachments online anymore.

I have friends but never to the point where they could hurt me.

@tenente Don't be. Like I said, I'm only sorry that it wasn't me who got the preemptive fuck-over. 😛
