    A girl I liked at school very much turned out to be someone with a range of issues. Because of these issues, she is very hard to deal with and in her own terms she ends up "****ing people over" and I was at the recieving end of that quite badly. Naturally, I blocked this person out my life and told them theyre a ****. Nevertheless, I'm a human being and I don't like the feeling of throwing people in the bin, I ruminate over it quite a lot.

    By the time you're 30, 90% of people you know will be in that 'bin' of yours.
    Might as well chuck one in to soften the drop for others kiddo. :shakecane:

    Personally, I find there's a knack to cutting someone off. Focus on every bad thing they do. Anything from an annoying voice to a short temper to a weird hairstyle. Petty **** if need be. Really focus on this stuff and think about why you have decided to cut this person off. Why they don't deserve your friendship. Focus on why you wasted your time, and that they are not even worthy of your presence. Finally, avoid on all forms of social media until you look at them and feel absolutely nothing.

    It's a stone cold ***** way of doing things, but at this stage of my life, I feel like I've pretty much perfected cutting people off and never seeing them again. Now, it's really easy. Like... too easy...

    For me i find the difficulty is cutting them off AND Blocking them.

    On one hand I feel like i should be just mature enough to keep them at arms length, on the other hand I dont want to have to be cautious with someone in the comfort of my own social media

    Just block them. Maybe not forever, but until you can look at that person and not give a damn either way anymore. That way, you don't have to be cautious. But the social media aspect is only half the battle, psychologically, you have got to block them too. It goes like this love -> cut off -> being upset -> hatred -> nothing. You have mentally got to accept that they are good for nothing and that you can do better. When you accept that, you'll be fine.
