Defriending isn't just unrecognized by some social oversight. it's protected by its own protocol, a code of silence. Demanding an explanation wouldn't just be undignified. it would violate the whole tacit contract on which friendship is founded. The same thing that makes friendship so valuable is what makes it so tenuous: it is purely voluntary. You enter into it freely, without the imperatives of biology or the agenda of desire. Officially, you owe each other nothing.
