    You could always tell him the truth. If he's going to get offended anyway...

    There's a custom privacy function on facebook where you can stop only certain people (in this case, one certain person :P) from viewing your status updates.

    Sounds like a bit of an immature thing for a 30 year old to do.

    Just tell him what the problem is.

    alharrison4 - sounds like a great idea Although i will suspect he'll notice at some point why he can't see my status's anymore :/

    I think telling him the truth might hurt him more than the actual status's, lol

    You can exclude people seeing certain statuses. Click the padlock button next to where you update, go to 'Customise' and write his name in, voila! You can also set this to your default, effectively blocking 'Neil' from seeing your updates forever.

    Go into your privacy settings, you can block him (without him knowing) from seeing certain aspects of your profiles/updates.

    Because people my age (18) i know wouldnt just delete someone like that, espcially someone they have to see as often, its a very immature and 'easy-way-out' thing to do. Talking to the guy and generally trying to find a nicer solution would be the more mature thing to do.

    The guy may be annoying to you and such, but no need to completely disregard him because of it, other people have feelings too, and just blocking/deleting him will cause unnecessary awkwardness in your house, to me anyway.

    Appreciate your honesty - it is however easy for you to say that because you are not in my situation and do not understand what it is like for me to live with him.

    I haven't deleted him, i've simply changed the privacy settings now....

    I'd also be interested to hear what solution you may have?.......

    I accept that, its always harder to give advice when your not in the situation, so i guess that (:. just from the outside it seems a bit.. wrong.

    Well i've already said what i'd doo, just talk to the guy.. tell him whats wrong, hes in his 20's im sure hes mature enough to deal with it. Either way your probably gonna have to talk to him about it if he finds out about you changing your settings :P

    You're thirty? :lolwut:

    I'm 20, and this whole situation makes you sound like a 14 year old.

    Just be honest, be fair/firm or however you want to put it, and get on with things. Why all the drama?
