There is this girl that I am friends with on Facebook, she got married 3 years ago. Its great, I am happy for her. But…
is it really freaking necessary to update your status every month saying “its been 2 years and 10 months since our wedding…” “its been 2 years and 11 months since our wedding..” “its been 2 years and 12 months since our wedding, and I am so in love…” blah blah blah- get where I am going with this? Her posts are so sappy, and not like The Notebook sappy, its like so sappy that its annoying.
Thank goodness I have the option to hide her my newsfeed.
Ok…that is all…I just had to vent. Thank you!

I could see posting for an actual annual anniversary, those can be very sweet and don’t bother me. It usually surprises and makes me happy for them once I see how much time has passed for friends of mine, where I actually attended their wedding. I don’t know that I personally will be on to do it either way, bc I’m pretty private on FB. However, actual monthly benchmarks? All the way up to year three? Ummm… no. That is annoying (and slightly obnoxious), and makes her look like she’s compensating for something.
For some reason, it also reminds me of the parents that say their kids are “28 months old”…. You just want to snap back “your kid is TWO and a HALF!”.

Some people are so weird about their mini-anniversary marks.
My friend’s (thankfully now ex) boyfriend once called me because I forgot either their six month or year and a half anniversary (I can’t remember which) and he was mad that I didn’t congratulate them on their perfect true love.

@Daizy914: In her defence… people can use Facebook how they want. If you don’t like reading their updates, hide them.

@smv22114: I thought the same thing…I feel like she is trying to prove sonething.
@paula1248: I did hide her from my feed, but I when I went to her page to send a message I saw that she was still givibg these monthly benchmarks abd I just had to post about it bc its weird to do that. And I know its her page, she can do what she pleases…but to other people she looks like shes trying too hard abd im not the only one who thinks its annoying.

I agree with PPs…. just hide them and don’t look. Ignore it.
I am going through something similar with someone who is the sister of an old friend of mine. She posts constantly (with misspellings) about her amazing teen-age daughters and this fantastic, married-but-separated guy she just started dating after he separated from his wife about four months ago (eyeroll).
Every time she posts a pic of her and him together, she makes some comment about maybe next year they can do this or that, or maybe in the future they will travel to this place or that. They just started dating!!!!!
I want to tell her that she’s making herself look desperate and needy, and — assuming his wife doesn’t take him back and he actually ends up getting divorced — she’s going to scare him off if she keeps up with all of these photo sessions and dramatic comments, but I don’t know her well enough.
She also loves to take sexy selfies while driving the mini-van or in front of the bathroom mirror, always with the poofy lips and sucked-in cheeks, and updates her profile pic constantly.
Sigh. It annoys the hell out of me, yet it’s entertaining at the same time to watch her continually make a spectacle of herself. So, I haven’t hidden her yet but I’m moving in that direction.

- Wedding: August 2013 - Wynn Las Vegas
Ha I think DH would block me himself if I posted ish like that. I have people on my feed who put sappy stuff like that, I always think all is not well in “paradise” when they have to constantly talk about it.

I swear, FB is like hearing the soundtrack of someone’s unfiltered brain. Somehow in real life these same people behave better, but get them on social media and all of a sudden we are “treated” to every thought in their head. It can be revealing and annoying at the same time. Hide, hide, hide!

I’m sorry but I don’t get the frustration toward this, she seems happy and as her friend you should be happy for her.
I’d MUCH rather see a constant ” he makes me so happy” post than a constant “I’m so miserable” post.

@Daizy914: My sister (astranged from the family right now, don’t talk to her but keep her posts because Im the only one with access to her FB and its the only way any of us know how our nieces/nephews/grandkids are doing) well she posts about 2-6 times a day about her doings.
No, she has not got an exciting job, well she doesn’t work. She’s a stay at home mum (lone parent) and her days are filled with washing, hanging, cooking, vaccuming, doctors appointments, going to the park, and more housework. That’s what she posts, 2 times a day minimum. Not just that she has many chores, but “5 loads of washing, 3 lots of cookies, a roast with such and such for dinner, got the kids rooms and hallway vaccuumed, better do the rest tomorrow, head off to the park for lunch and came home an hour later, watched some TV before kids went to bed and I did even more washing before having time to myself finally. Better go to bed to get up at X time in the morning!” Thrilling. I get live updates on how the washing is going, too.
And the last post of 90% of her days? “Kids are asleep, time to relax, have a smoke and drink some alcohol.”
Well it looks more like “Kds aslep time for can nd smke 2 chil b4 bed lmfao.”

That’s exactly why I don’t have a Facebook.

I think the washing and live updates are good.
I hate to point this out, but when they die its nice to relive there life.
Its happened to me, what I thought wss annoying at the time ,now I wish there were more messages.

@FutureMrsHallam: THOSE people! I have a friend (who types JUST like that) about “how hard it iz bein a good mom 2 my little boi”
Except that SHE’S NOT RAISING THE KID. HER MOM IS! She was posting about how hard it was from 2,000 miles away, because her JAILED drug-dealing BF (also not the baby’s bio Dad) is apparently a higher priority to her.

Yeah, I think at a certain point you stop counting in months (publicly, at least) and just focus on the years. 😉
