I remember the day we met like it was yesterday. I remember the excitement of signing up and the thrill of each friend request I received from people of my youth. I remember checking every hour on the hour to see what was going on and falling more in love with you each day. I felt alive and informed.
But here we are 4 years later and I have to admit, I am getting tired of your sneaky ways. First it was the unannounced revisions you made to my privacy settings where you decided to share our secrets to whomever cared to look. I found out about that one from a dear friend who was brave enough to tell me in person. Then you gave away access to my photos without asking. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t post THOSE photos for all to see but I still felt that you disrespected my right to decide. I heard about that one on the news. But today, Facebook, today you really went too far. I use you on my mobile phone to stay connected but that doesn’t give you the right to rifle through my contacts and use them for your own gains. Yes I know you say its to help make more matches but I did not ask you to violate my privacy in such a manner. I am perfectly capable of finding my own matches and don’t need you sneaking around unannounced. I am starting to feel like I am being taken advantage of and I don’t want to be in a relationship where I cant trust you.
All I am asking is that you contact me and ask me if I want you doing these things – a simple request if I have ever heard one. I don’t know how many “second chances” I have left in me. I think I deserve that after all of our time together. Don’t you?
