One of my FB friends just announced her engagement - complete with official status change, photos of the happy couple etc. They look blissfully happy, he seems like a nice guy, I sincerely wish her well.
Buuuut, the thing is .... back when we became "friends" she was a happy newlywed! She is a former coworker of mine and we kept in touch for awhile after I left that job. When I met her it was just before her wedding (as in, a few weeks beforehand) and we worked together for awhile and then kept in touch for a short time afterwards. So I guess sometime in the past few years she's gotten divorced, moved on, and met somebody new.
I briefly considered messaging her some private congratulations, but I wonder if it will just seem a bit off.... last we spoke in person was shortly after *my* wedding! (Five years ago). I guess I hadn't realised how long it was since we'd had any real contact. So I'm thinking it's definitely time for a quiet unfriending. I honestly can't think of anything else appropriate. A post saying "Oh wow, last I remember you were getting married the first time!" or "Wait, what happened to John?" would definitely be in poor taste!!
