“On Facebook, I’ve been noticing a trend of unfriending en masse. And not just taking the proverbial power saw to your friends list, but announcing it beforehand. Letting everyone know that in a few minutes they may or may not have made the cut. Like The Bachelor, but with more roses. Or maybe less roses. I don’t know. I don’t watch The Bachelor.
Don’t be coy. You know who you are. I’ve read your statuses:
Don’t be offended. Don’t take this personally. Just simplifying my life.
And then we all have to sit there and wonder if, when the page is refreshed, we’ve survived the cut. It’s a lot of pressure and, truth be told, feels a little Mean Girls to me. You’re better than this.”
