How Do You Know Who Your True Friends Are/Aren't?
Someone recently died, and my whole family posted about it on Facebook. All of my friends expressed their condolences. However, one of my good friends said nothing. Just to make sure they saw, I e-mailed them to tell them about it (They live in a different state). I got no response to the e-mail. It's been 3 days. This is no just "hey how are you". This is "So and so DIED". Yeah, our friendship is OVER. Some people are so selfish!

Maybe they didn't get your email. Try the old fashioned way - calling.

Don't be a baby and end a friendship over an email. Act like an adult and talk to the person. If they legitimately don't give a crap, then tell them to f*** off. But then again, maybe they didn't think the same thing of the friendship as you did/do.

Re: How Do You Know Who Your True Friends Are/Aren't?
If it was a great aunt or someone who wasn't immediate family maybe they didn't feel condolences were warranted. I was close to all my great aunts and uncles and 2nd cousins but some people don't even know extended family and may feel phony saying something to you if they don't think you'll miss them.

I wouldn't end a friendship over it but friends should be able to talk about it. Maybe if you wrote that you were close or this was a special relative or whatever, it may help. It could be they really don't know what to say and think they may sound phony. Seriously, you don't realize how nice it is to hear "I'm sorry about your...." until someone you love dies. It's because you're emotionally drained and are trying to still do your daily activities and it's nice for others who are also doing those activities to stop and acknowledge it, it's like they realize your brain isn't all on the same page or team at the moment with them and it's okay but until it happens some people don't realize it's important.

I don't think you should worry about how others are doing and feeling and just worry about your self

I think you should be disappointed at most. But giving up a friendship like that is over-reacting on your part.

I certainly understand that you are in pain and perhaps over-emotional right now due to the death of a family member, but I want you to be rational.

Please accept my condolences.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 31128946


Facebook is so awful... I get what you're saying, OP, and I'd be hurt too, if I KNEW that the other person was deliberately ignoring me. Here's the thing, though. ALWAYS try to imagine the worst-case scenario from their POV until u can gather all the facts. Perhaps your email to them went to their spam folder? Highly unlikely, but it's a possibility. If they did indeed get your email and aren't sympathizing with you, MOVE ON!!! There's no reason why you need to put yourself in an abusive relationship. I say "abusive" because when you are at your lowest, you find out who your true friends are. Not just the merry-time friends but the friends that will stick with you through the worst. THOSE type of friends, the ones that stick, are the ones you want to keep around. The others, not so much.

I just found out a guy I have known for almost a decade and been romantically involved said on FB that he was moving out of state in eight days. Talk about being shocked and hurt to find this news out on FB!!! This was a guy that said not a year ago that we should get married.

Long and short, though, gather all the facts u can before coming to a rash judgment. After u have gathered all those facts, then make your decision and be done with it.

Exactly! That's very well-said. It's like he went on with his merry little life, not even looking back to see if I was OK, and that is very selfish, considering he considers me one of his "best friends".
