Why people don't get it!!

Sat, Sep 24, 2011 at 2:13 PM By: Jamie

I have this friend on Facebook. he was in a relationship for only 3 weeks. I noticed on his page he had said he wanted to kill himself because they broke up. Me being a nice and caring person decided to try to talk to him. So I put it out there. It took him a little bit but he did come around. I understand that when you care about someone it is hard to let go. But to kill yourself for them, REALLY? What about the people who care about you that have been in your life way longer than 3 weeks? How about your kids? I thought about what I would say carefully. I didn't want him to get any more upset. It worked and I am so thankful he is doing better. Now the problem is he started trying to flirt w/ me and I am married, he knows that because I always talk about him (my husband) and it is in my profile as well. He wants to see more of me. Okay trying to be nice about it when he is already vulnerable. But it is annoying. Lately I have been to busy to go there. He wanted me to call and I said no. I don't feel comfortable and just want to keep a FB relationship and nothing more. He doesn't seem to get it so if anybody has any suggestions please let me know. I am just trying to be a nice person to someone who is hurting. Nothing more if it continues I will end up dropping him from my FB friends.

    I would say to tell him gently that you are happily married and that there is no one that can change the way you feel about your husband. My question is this: did you know him in real life, or do you just know him through Facebook? I have a few FB friends who I don't know, and some of them have tried the same thing with me. (Then again, I'm only 15 and have no boyfriend, so it's a little less complicated in my case.) Either way, I would tell him that you are ONLY friends and if he wants to be any closer than that, then he has to find someone else. You ARE a nice, caring person, but enough is enough, and you have to protect yourself.

    hmm. trying to be nice and now he seems attached to you. Does he not understand...married?? i'm thinking drop him from FB, you don't want him attached to you then he gets hurt again and goes for the killing himself. Tell him to join a gym, go out with friends from work, or volunteer to get his mind off things. You showed him kindness when he needed it and now it seems he can't let go. Or you could meet him and bring hubby. Not sure really. Good luck
