@anongirl89:  Yes, there are people like this.

I hope your cousin doesn’t let this girl’s childish silliness upset her. Getting married, having kids, buying houses and cars isn’t a competition in the adult world – it’s your life. So, if you would rather do these things so you can feel like you beat someone who doesnt even know they’re in a race with you rather than making smart choices when the time is right, meh. 

Someone like that never has to look too far to find someone ahead of them in the game. It must be exhausting keeping tabs on everyone and using them as the yardstick by which you measure your own life.

My sis in law does this with me.  It drives me crazy and I feel like it’s embarrasssing – I feel like it looks like we planned it or something.  I sometimes wonder if our mutual friends see how obvious it is.  DH always tells me it’s not a big deal, and she’s the one looking like the fool copying me but it still irks me. Some people are just like that, I guess

@anongirl89:  YES!  I see this type of thing too.  I don’t post a lot on facebook so its never been directed toward me.  I do notice tons of humble bragging.

I just don’t know why you’d stay Facebook “friends” with someone like that.

Ugh, people like this are the worst.  Can they be blocked or hidden from your feed?

@anongirl89:  Lol yes there are truly people like this. My BFF was kind of notorious for it until I privately called her out on it. She told me she wasn’t one upping me, but after that conversation it all ended, so I am guessing she really was trying to do that, but didn’t want to admit it.

@anongirl89:  YES!! A girl I went to HS with does it with me, it is so childish. FH and I have known each other for 10 years, been together for almst 8 and engaged almost 3. Her and her husband met, dated, got engaged and married in less than a year, and maybe she feels self-conscience about rushing into a marriage she constantly puts down couples who wait to get married and how her way is much better.


I can tell some status are directly related to mine. a few months ago I posted how it has been 10 years since FH and I met and so on, and then her status was the exact same! She even lied about her dates to make it seem like they been together longer than they have. For example, she put how they dating for YEARS before getting married, however, a few months AFTER getting married she status was about how it was their 1 year anniversary of dating…wtf.


I could go on and on, it’s so sad.

If I were your cousin, I would just limit what this girl can see along with removing her from the newsfeed.  I’m assuming they are close enough that removing her as a friend completely would just create more drama.  Limiting probably won’t stop it entirely, but hopefully it will keep the comments entertaining as they won’t be frequent enough to become really annoying.
