@anemonie:  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.

+1. I’ve never understood why people post things like that on FB.

@Overjoyed:  Worshipers? Lol wow. Now I am curious what his career is. Movie star? 😛

I dunno, if a guy I knew (or used to date) posted this, I would just think he was a huge douche. Fair enough if you have that attitude, but it should really be between you and the person you’re dating, you know? It’s like he’s posing a challenge to his many admirers and it just screams douchebag… yuck. I would also assume that in some way the guy was a bit insecure and needing some sort of validation. You know the type… massive ego but needs to constantly be reassured about how great they are.

My drunk cousin posts stuff like that all the time. He dated this AMAZING woman for like 6 years. Everyone told him to marry her. Even the other boys were like “Man, this chick is WAY to good for you. Put a ring on her finger before she figures it out!” He didn’t and she broke up with him. 2 years later, she’s married and he hasn’t had a significant relationship. His status updates make me feel like he’s trying to prove he’s ok when it really REALLY seems like he’s not.

to me it sounds like he was burned in relationships before so he’s trying to make himself feel better about his lack of love life but claiming no one is amazing enough for him and he has better things to do.  Think he’s a bit miserable casue if you really did want to focus on your career and didn’t mind not being marriend you won’t be posting stuff like that. 

That’s what I see.

@Overjoyed:  It is a little rude because it does imply that about you… if he thought about it.

However, from the tone of the broadcast, it doesn’t sound like he even thought about what it implied about you…he seems self-absorbed. It has a defensive tone to it as if someone has been bugging him about why he’s not married yet, or he’s been seeing a lot of his friends get married and is getting envious. This is ALL ABOUT HIM, in his head, anyway.

@deetroitwhat:  This is SO true. Most men are pretty simple and straightforward. They don’t have all these secret motives that women like to try and read into their actions/words with. It means what it says. And if it doesn’t? Still doesn’t really matter. An ex is an ex for a reason – why would you want him to consider you “effing amazing” in the first place?

You should probably stop trying to read into the status updates of your ex-boyfriends.

@crayfish:  That’s kind of what I was getting at with my original post. I get that you’re still friends with this guy, OP, and I know you said you were trying to start a discussion about the content of the post, but I wouldn’t read anything into an ex’s post, and if you are you need to stop subscribing to their feed.

@Overjoyed:  Yeah I’d say you’re reading too much into it!That being said, “reading too much into it ” is my specialty! This guy also seems to be feeling a little insecure about his singledom, and something has happened in his life ( a few friends getting hitched or engaged perhaps?) that he feels the need to broadcast to all of his friends his intended focus on his career and not on his romantic life. OBVIOUSLY  and girl would have to be “pretty effing amazing” for him to want to marry her…that’s sort of the point. He sounds a little douchey too, so just feel a little sorry for him and move on 🙂

@nambi_pambi:  Yup, that’s exactly how I interpreted it. He’s insecure about being single as all his friends may be settling down.

I notice that both men and women do this on FB when they are insecure about/hating their single status. Think of the single people who embrace being single/will not settle for less. They’re not posting passive-aggressive statuses about being single. They are out enjoying and living their lives. If they post something on FB, it’s usually a pic of a concert or event or vacation spot they are at. One of my friends always posts, “I may be single but… I’m awesome/amazing/a catch/etc.” statuses immediately after a relationship goes sour. Clearly, it’s discomfort at living the single life again.
