Growing tired of my self-absorbed friend on Facebook.
It's just this endless stream of posts everyday all about his book, his writing, ingratiating adulation of other writers, self-promoting language disguised behind somewhat feigned, if not forced, humility.

I'm not the only one who's noticed it. It's just constant. Maybe 10 individual posts a day, maybe 15, almost all of it "me"-centered in some way or another, very self-important language, as if to say, "WHAT I HAVE TO SAY HERE IS REALLY IMPORTANT AND WORTH NOTICING."

He's a really good friend, someone I've known for 15 years, but lately ... he's changed.

He got his book published, he's gone far, far to the Left, calls his political beliefs a "war", seems to think he's "above" the sort of silliness my friendship with him and another friend has always entailed, distances himself, says we have nothing in common, wants to find that "connection" with other people, says MSNBC is so much more "intelligent" than Fox News, seems baffled by Ron Paul, etc. Basically, just mainline Liberal thinking on everything.

I can tell he's thinking, "God, those guys (myself and my other friend), they're just... immature, they're not in the same realm as my uber-intelligent writer friends." I don't think it's that explicit, but it's implicit in his communication.

This has been going on for a few years, when he got involved with a single mom lesbian girl (ok, she wasn't lesbian, but she looked like one) out in Maine. He said being with her "opened his eyes."

He came back from Maine talking about how "great" it was that everyone there in their 30s out there got wasted every weekend, if not every day. Yeah, that's something to admire.

Anyway, we all share different hobbies and interests, that's not what makes a friendship. To him, though, if you're not into his fiction writing and discussing establishment philosophical ideas derived from academia and quoting authors and deferring to "experts" with Ph.Ds, you're just not on the same level.

He's not that blatant about it, but it's there.

I don't think, "Wow, you're my great friend because you're into conspiracies like me," that's not what makes a friend.

So it's disappointing, and the Facebook stuff gets... tiresome. I suppose he has to promote himself and his book, but if I'm an industry person or a fan of his genre, all those posts would personally turn me off. Who knows, it may dazzle others.

Oh, and one last thing: he lives with his parents.

I was on it for a few months to keep in touch with family. I've deleted it and haven't gone back since. If it becomes a source of irritation, it's time to get rid of it.

Re: Growing tired of my self-absorbed friend on Facebook.
Dont you have to have them as a friend to ignore or block them? if so, what is the point of having them as a friend in the first place?

I really grew to abhore facebook. When it first came out, I thought it was really cool to be in touch with people...especially when you have that...whatever happened to so and so.... but with that brings problems and annoyances that I am glad I am free from. I shut down my account 2.5 years ago, and have been pretty happy since.

I'm not the only one who's noticed it. It's just constant. Maybe 10 individual posts a day, maybe 15, almost all of it "me"-centered in some way or another, very self-important language, as if to say, "WHAT I HAVE TO SAY HERE IS REALLY IMPORTANT AND WORTH NOTICING."

He's a really good friend, someone I've known for 15 years, but lately ... he's changed.

He got his book published, he's gone far, far to the Left, calls his political beliefs a "war", seems to think he's "above" the sort of silliness my friendship with him and another friend has always entailed, distances himself, says we have nothing in common, wants to find that "connection" with other people, says MSNBC is so much more "intelligent" than Fox News, seems baffled by Ron Paul, etc. Basically, just mainline Liberal thinking on everything.

I can tell he's thinking, "God, those guys (myself and my other friend), they're just... immature, they're not in the same realm as my uber-intelligent writer friends." I don't think it's that explicit, but it's implicit in his communication.

This has been going on for a few years, when he got involved with a single mom lesbian girl (ok, she wasn't lesbian, but she looked like one) out in Maine. He said being with her "opened his eyes."

He came back from Maine talking about how "great" it was that everyone there in their 30s out there got wasted every weekend, if not every day. Yeah, that's something to admire.

Typical. I brought up everything, nothing hidden and explained the current situation articulately. A few of my friends are exactly like your friend, very liberal leaning - pompous and self-assuming know-it-all. His response was that every so often a few generations of men try to exploit the system, rinse / repeat. That may be so, but they also orchestrate it in a manner most controlling. To him, this was unfathomable.

You nailed it with the pompous and self-assuming know it all attitude. My other friend can't stand that about him. Total lack of humility or ability to put your ego aside. Total adherence to the status quo and whatever the academics say, the "experts".
