I added these people because they were my husband's friend's wives. These people have not been friendly when I see them. They act cold towards me. They've been rude to the point where even my husband has noticed it. Regardless, my husband still insists I could try harder to be their friend because he's friends with their husbands. They hardly ever comment on my Facebook, or they compete with everything I post on Facebook by putting a post as if in response to mine and it just builds animosity. One of my best friends told me to stop trying to force a friendship that the other person obviously doesn't want. I couldn't take it anymore so I blocked them so they wouldn't know my business anymore. I still see them at church but I think, "You're either going to be my friend in real life or you're not. This Facebook stuff is not going to work for us." They have actually acted friendlier since I have blocked them. I don't know why this is. It is refreshing to have them acting friendlier towards me. I feel happier having blocked them and only having people that truly like me and support me on my Facebook. I also wonder if it's a sin to block other christians you know at church off your Facebook. I haven't given them an explanation and they haven't asked why I've blocked them. I don't want to unblock them because I'm happier this way but I wonder if I look unchristian.
