@Overjoyed:  i think this guy sounds like a d-bag and you shouldn’t take this failed attempt to overcompensate personally.

@Overjoyed:  Is there a reason you’re still FB friend with this ex? If this status update is upsetting you so much I think you should probably cut social media ties with him. Or at least block him from your news feed.

@Overjoyed:  Well first off, I find it a rather odd thing to post on Facebook as a status update. This wasn’t in context of some conversation?

I interpret it as he’s young, wants to have fun, is focused on his career, and doesn’t want to be tied down.

I pity the poor girl who dates him next lol.

Let me preface this by saying I sincerely mean this in the nicest way possible:

Who cares?

He is your ex, you are obviously happily with someone else (assuming that is your wedding date). Even if it was directed at you, why does it matter? If it was, he is petty and immature, and is only proving you made the right choice by no longer being with him.

Well, after your update I agree that he sounds kind of douchey. I wouldn’t take it personally. It’s one thing for someone to say something like that offhand, but to put it out in the world via social media, it sounds like overcompensating. He’s clearly self conscious that nobody “amazing” is just flocking to him and falling into his lap without him even trying, whereas he probably has other people in his life that he sees making commitments in their relationships, so he’s like “My life’s not sad! Look…I have a career!” 


Not that there’s anything wrong with prioritizing a career over looking for a serious relationship, but the way he phrased it just makes it sound like he’s trying to justify his single-ness to the Internet. Like…why does it even need to be said?

First of all he sounds like an idiot… I read “I don’t see marriage as something I ever want to do, I’m all about the money and being single and being THE MAN” …


Sounds a lot like he’s ribbing his mates who are doing  things differently or is giving a love interest a piece of his mind

@Overjoyed:  Did you happen to just recently post about your wedding?  He might just be throwing a snit fit.  Guys like that assume every woman they’ve dated are falling all over themselves to get him back.

Having real evidence he can’t have you anymore has probably been a blow to his ego.

I think guys pretty much say what they mean.

Women?  Love to interpret it other ways.

If you are getting married, who cares what his thoughts are on marriage or how he wants to live his life or what his priorities are.   Delete him or hide him from your news feed. Is there a reason why he’s still on your friends list?  Or do I sense a little jealousy on your part because he’s not embracing your engagement or getting jealous of you because you still have feelings for him? Obviously you do since you want everyone to pick apart his post? IDK.  Read on, move along.

@Overjoyed:  Why do you care what anyone from your past posts?

I’m sure your Fiance is wonderful & I would be more concerned about what he posts. 🙂 


I feel when people make posts like that in public media, they are really looking for someone to save/comfort them about where they are at…. To give them a reason to do something they want to do but are too scared to admit.  Whole adults don’t need to declare anything. They are so happy with where they are at they just look around happy with now, eager for more & posts reflect that. Same for “different” people. No Sir, you aren’t different. Everyone wants someone amazing. Lol.

I actually think he may be feeling sensitive if a friend of his has recently gotten engaged….the “I’m just different I guess” I feel like is a jab at guys he knows who have gotten engaged or married…I would interpret it at he is feeling kinda self concious that he’s not serious w/someone-but placing the blame on anyone else but himself. But-I agree w/PP, he sounds like an idiot w/issues, be happy it’s your past.
