I personally think it’s silly how affected we are by these little likes or lack of likes, being “unfriended” etc…not that I’m immune to those feelings of being slighted….but I think if you felt the need to clear them out, and u are the only one that will probably notice you did so, then there’s nothing wrong with that.

It’s too bad you lost a friendship. Sorry.

Normal. I had to unload a friend on FB and in real life, and we have several mutuals. She likes to put a little saying under the things I say (llike an inside joke saying, childish) and text my friends “ideas” for my wedding. Go away!

I remember reading your previous post when all of this happened. I don’t really think its that petty. When breaking up with an ex I remove pictures – and not that you broke up with these friends, maybe someday you can repair the friendship – but I imagine when seeing them your emotions just flared up about the situation and you just wanted their images gone from in front of you. I can understand that and since Facebook really doesn’t matter that much in the grand scheme of things I don’t think you should feel bad or guilty.

Oh my gosh.  This is why I don’t have a facebook.  How ridiculous.  Imagine what the Hatfields & McCoys would have done to each other if they had facebook back then!

🙁 That would be so hurtful to hear. I don’t think you are out of line for removing all pictures of these people from your FB. Who wants reminders of hurtful people hanging around? (( hugs ))

I think people should read the original thread (I hope you don’t mind me linking it OP) here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/what-is-the-right-thing-to-do before leaping straight in with exclamations of how ridiculous Facebook is in their eyes.

OP I’m sorry to hear C&N took sides like they did, especially seemingly for what they could get out of it (ie a total douche bag paying for things for them) instead of doing what was morally right. The way the thread ended I assumed they had just been kind of on the fence and not taking sides, so to find they’ve actually taken the other side makes me sad and I understand how angry you must be.

By all means, untag them and wipe their pictures away. Sometimes this is the best thing to do. They deleted you from their lives when they took sides like they did so you erasing them from yours is hardly a bad thing.

I went through this 6 months ago with my ex best friend. I understand how hard it is. We have a lot of mutual friends so it’s difficult to distance myself completely. I don’t have any good advice, just wanted to say I went through the same thing.

I also did this to an ex-best friend of mine and I was shocked and horrified by her actions against me and chose to end our friendship for my sanity.  Ending that friendship meant deleting her phone number, blocking her on FB and deleting all of her pictures. 

I feel terribly that they hurt you this bad and I think it is perfectly ok for you to delete their pics, it’s a cleansing process.

I don’t think you’re wrong to not want them associated with you in anyway.  They sound like a pack of jerks.   You do not need people like that in your life in anyway.  I’m sorry the wounds were opened again for you.  Hopefully, you can get past it soon.
