It’s not that I don’t want to be friends with you. I just don’t want to be your Facebook friend if I’m not already or we don’t have history. Sorry. It’s not personal. Maybe I’m a somedia introvert. It’s just that, FB has always kind of creeped me out. This has not changed in the past 5 years since I decided to play along. But it has changed since I figured out how to manage it to my own satisfaction. To be honest I ❤ my little FB neighborhood. I can actually get to people, engage and support. Maybe for you that’s no big deal, but some of us work better with small groups. I can do stage w/ 1000’s just fine… but having 1000’s of people talking, with conflicting values and opinions, varying levels of morality and etc. (LOL!!!) at once… Not for me.
Soooo, now I don’t have to play along anymore because the features have changed. I’m hanging out on the other side of Facebook. If you don’t have a page, that’s cool… but if you do please share so we can chat page to page.
The new Facebook timeline screwed up my not so nice little intro to let people know my FB policy so now you can’t see it unless you click more. If you don’t want to read it, the gist is if you really want to connect, catch me on my page or in one of the many groups I’m active in. Then there’s also that awesome network I hang out with called #TXNL (Better Me, Inc.’s The XStream Network Live).
So for anyone thinking that I’m blowing you off, I’m not.
I’ll get to you eventually if you’re legit… here’s my FB disclaimer:
Please visit and like my page at http://fb.com/SugarFreeCoach if you really want to connect. If I know you, I will see that and add you as a friend. If I don’t maybe our paths will cross and we can connect more later.
I keep trying to tell y’all I am not nice.
Articulate, of course.
Polite, when appropriate.
Sugar Free means sugar free.
I’d rather you not think I’m sweet. That way when I say something you don’t like, you won’t be all shocked and offended.
I ♥ you enough to tell you the truth even if it means you won’t be my friend. I hope you ♥ me that much too.
But for those of you who don’t know how to receive… that also means if I give you a compliment, you can take it to the bank.
I’m not trying to impress, suck up or get brownie points with anyone, ever. Don’t get coached for arguing me down when I give you a compliment, that’s probably when I’m least polite. 😀
