Here’s the Problem: Yeah, we went to High School together. We may have shared a lunch period once. We’ve happened to land up in the same big metropolitan city. And yeah, I check your lame Facebook updates.
Actual Problem: We’re not friends. Just cuz we’re both girls doesn’t mean we’re in some kinda club. I don’t want you to know who my gynecologist is, so please take me off your mass emails where you look for new doctors. I don’t want to meet you for lunch if you’re near my office and I probably can’t make it to your birthday.
Rule of Thumb: If I haven’t called/emailed/texted/come up to you drunk at a party and said, “hi,” it’s not because I’m shy.
