Cafemom, Friends and Complaining

I was just reading a question on here and saw someone complaining about a friend. It got me wondering, how many of these woman who complain about their friends have those said friends on there friends list. How many of these said friends read the posts and such with their friends complaining about them. If I have someone that upset me and I am friends with them on here I wouldnt go posting it here on Cafemom for that friend to read. Has anyone else ever thought about that?

  • Well I haven't complained about any of my friends on here but it wouldn't matter if I did because I will talk to them about it and plus I am the only one out of all my friends who's a mother so I know they aren't on here. I have friends on here but I never complain about them, since I have no reason to complain.

  • I agree with you. Me and my Bff are both on cm but if we have any problems we both leave it between us. We don't post it.

  • I agree with Kimberly71682, We are BFF's and SIL's and we were just talking about this about an hour ago! We both agreed that we don't ever talk about each other on here because it will get back to one another! And we love ech other too much to talk crap about each other to other cafemommas! We leave it at home!

  • I'm guessing this is partly about me. My friend isn't a mom and doesn't want to be. I ask the questions I do where I do because I feel I will get the most relevant answers. If she saw the post and wants to stop being friends because of it that would be unfortunate but would not break me. Besides I highly doubt she would, I choose my friends carefully and have known her to rant about me on other sites. LOL. I don't mind, we are both so far from home we need other adults to talk to and there aren't many female in the same boat we are in.

  • I guess that's when they post anon. None of my RL friends are on cafemom

  • I don't know anyone from CM in RL - and I like it that way. This is my escape, I don't want my family (or worse, my in-laws) hanging out here.
