Did he watch that stupid “Ready for Love” show last night?  Jealous much?

Also – don’t be friends with your ex!

@Overjoyed:  I wouldn’t take it personally.  It sounds to me like the guy is just saying that he’s simply just more focused on his career than personal relationships right now. 

Its also VERY possible he’s at an age where a lot of his peers are getting married and he’s getting the “its your turn next!” Or, “when are you going to find a nice girl and settle down!” nonsense and he’s just reacting to that.

@almostmrsj:  Ugh.

I’m sorry, but it bugs me that when someone says they’re fine with their life when that life is different from the “norm” or expected and they’re immediately accused of being jealous.

I mean, he didn’t put down anyone getting married.  He simply said he can’t imagine it for HIMSELF right now.  So?  What’s wrong with that?  Why would anyone interpret that as jealousy or insecurity?

@Zhabeego:  I’m with you, 99% of the time.  My reply was based on that god-awful show (that aired last night and was advertised everywhere for weeks).  It showed a bunch of super-succesful guys who were now ‘ready for love’ and wanting to settle down with super hot chicks.  If he watched it, bet he was jealous of them, having it all.  Since that whole status made him sound like that sort of insecure douche.

Go ‘head and “ugh” me, but she asked how I’d interpret it.

@Overjoyed:  He’s hyper aware of his relationship status and feels the need to state that before someone else does. It sounds like a farce to me. He’s career minded, which is fine, but he didn’t really need to put the whole relationship thing in there. ‘On my career tip now!’ would have been much more succinct and been less…yeah.

 

FB has made me so cynical.

@almostmrsj:  My reply wasn’t meant to insult you so I apologize if it came off that way. 

I always rather laugh when I hear about someone “having it all.”  What does that even mean?  I didn’t see the show you’re talking about but frankly, I don’t think too much of guys who are full of themselves and whose overriding priority for a life mate is that she be “super hot.” 

Being wealthy is certainly nice and being successful is certainly something to be proud of.  But arrogance is never attractive and when you pair it with shallow priorities it also means you’re setting yourself up for a fall. Life happens to everyone and very few people, if anyone, manage to get out unscathed.

@Overjoyed:  Just that he’s focused on his career, and maybe that he was recently dating someone who was on more of a marriage track than he was ready for. It’s a pretty straight forward status…

@Overjoyed:  Ah, okay.  I see what you mean.

The other day I saw something similar on Pinterest – it was one of those little e-cards that said something along the lines of, “I’m single andjust fine  so you’d better be pretty freaking awesome if you think you’re going to change that!” and it struck me the same way I think this guy’s post struck you.

I mean – do they think there’s anyone whose looking for someone they find less than amazing?

Or, are they saying they’re so freaking awesome that anyone who even thinks about getting with them needs to check their own awesome level first?

Yeah, that, I admit, does come off as arrogant and of rather protesting too much.

Sounds very similar to the “singleandlovingmylifeeeFREEDOMforeverrrrr” posts that annoy me oh so much…. Not that “ihavethebestboyfriendeverrrrluckiestgurlintheworlddd” is any better. Sigh.

Lol he sounds like a good 70% of the people on my Facebook, and probably 95% of people on my Twitter. There seems to be a huge trend right now of people who think they’re damn special for doing every day things. It’s annoying as hell.

He’s someone who’s into his career right now and isn’t ready to get married because he hasn’t met anyone worthy of him. His life is all about him right now, he’s not apologetic about it and he wants people to know that

As a side note, he’s your ex. Stop reading his status’s.
