I actually laughed out loud at this. Like what? The only person you should expect a “happy anniversary” from is your spouse. I can promise you that your friend does not care that much about your anniversary.

I check social media about once to twice a day, and get bored with it after five minutes. I’m sure I miss a ton of birthdays and anniversaries due to algorithms and what the app decides to show me. If I don’t have your anniversary memorized, it’s not that important to me.

When did society start to rely a phone app for validation?

I’ll admit, I’m on social media quite often and literally do not give a shit about anyones anniversary other than my own and my close family (parents/grandparents). 

I’m sorry you didn’t get the attention you wanted. Happy anniversary?

Don’t get me wrong, when I’ve been the Maid/Matron of Honor or a bridesmaid in a wedding, I will typically acknowledge the first anniversary by calling the couple or sending a card/flowers, so maybe I’m different in that respect.  But I just can’t with this social media BS.

sassyshid07 :  I think you are assuming that people are way more invested into your life than they actually are.  On average I spend about 2.2 nano seconds looking at my friends FB pics.  The only ones that get a longer glance are the ones that post pics of the dogs and my nieces/nephews. lol

I have four siblings and only know one of their anniversary dates.  And the only reason I know that date is because it happened on my birthday.  lol  Rather than be hurt that your best friend didn’t comment on your anniversary, focus on the more substantial qualities that your friend has.  At the end of the day, I really don’t care whose anniversary it is, and I barely remember birthdays…but you better believe I’m the one right there with a friend or sibling for a midnight ER visit with their kid, or holding my sick and puking niece so my sister can can get a quick nap and shower.

Social media is a slippery slope.  It’s frustrating and mind boggling how much stock people put into how many likes their picture or comments get.

sassyshid07 :  You shouldn’t be concerned about her behavior, but you should start questioning yourself and your desire to get likes and focus on social media for validation and congratulations.  You’re married. You celebrated your first year! That is what you should be thinking about; not an emoji. The only reason you should ever focus on social media engagement is if SEO/marketing is your career. Stop thinking of yourself as a brand and stop marketing yourself for likes. Focus on your relationship. The real one.
