@WeddingBells2014:  I’m sorry I don’t have any advice, but I think he’s being a moron.  He’s aware that he’s making you look bad with those posts, but won’t stop putting them up.

@WeddingBells2014:  that would bug me simply because when people post updates like that it really annoys me. The good news is that rational people understand that Facebook is full of cryptic or passive aggresive status updates and don’t read too much into it.

Lyric statuses annoy me, but I’m surprised people who see them take them seriously.  That would bother me too.

I would sit down with him and tell him that if he wants to post things like that, to pick ones that likily wouldn’t affect you.

How old is he? Not to be harsh but he sounds like a kid. In my experience grown men don’t behave like this (esp caring so much about a celebrity… feeling “sad” about them and so on). Which celebrity is it? Miley Cyrus? Lady Gaga? Something’s not right.

This would bug me too, because I hate passive agressive and vague statuses! There’s no need to leave out important information like that – I find people often do it when they need attention.

Sending a message to a celebrity who was Behaving badly? That is just weird!  Like schizophrenic type weird!

@WeddingBells2014:  You could just spoil it for him, start commenting with a link to the song or something.

that is annoying as fuck!  My husband doesn’t have facebook, but I think if I were in your shoes, I’d try to make him understand that it’s not funny – it’s actually really embarassing and makes you feel humiliated that a lot of people think you’re being an evil witch and/or breaking up.  My guy has occasionally done something that reflects poorly on me without realizing it, and he has always totally understood and stopped when I show him that perspective.  Even if he kind of disagrees about the seriousness of it, he’ll still stop when it’s clear that it’s serious to ME.

@WeddingBells2014:  You know who posts statuses like that?  My teenaged cousin.  I find it incredibly annoying but I cut her some slack because she’s 14.  I can’t imagine marrying a guy in his 20s who thinks that’s cool.

He sounds like an attention h00r. Nip his “mysterious” posts by taking the mystery out of them.

@Magdalena:  +1 this is very attention seeking behavior and would drive me crazy coming from a grown man. The only people I know who do things like this on Facebook are in middle or high school!
