So i get this note on Facebook.

Just was wondering what yall think about it!


So the title of this note pretty much covers what I want to say. I also want to clear up some things, I am NOT getting married right away, we have very tentatively set a date for 2010. I may have only been going out with my finance for about 5-6 months but we are amazingly close and in love and no one should ever be able to question that in the way it was questioned when we told my parents. To be fair, it did come as a very huge shock to them because of the amount of time we have known each other and apparently my age, though I am almost 19. This is not a decision that was made in haste and I will not be changing my mind about who I want to spend the rest of my life with. I may be young and some of you reading this note may think I have no clue what love is and I can't possibly know because I don't know who I am yet. Though those are wise points I am here to tell you that I DO KNOW what LOVE is and I plan to grow and find myself with my finance *Name Edited*. I am mature enough to make this decision and I hope those of you reading this are mature enough to respect it.


What do you think and then i will tell you what i think !!!!

Umm... yeah. She sounds really mature. Not at all like she's thowing a verbal tantrum over something someone said.

Back away slowly and head for the nearest exit *nod*

May I please suggest anonymizing that a bit? That's not a really nice thing to post and isn't taking the high road at all while you try to put her in an unfavorable position.

A.) Agree with dragonman97 on redacting the names of the innocent/not so innocent. It's just the nice thing to do.

B.) Uh, yeah, I remember hearing, saying, believing, etc. very similar words. Usually means they're trying to convince themselves that they're really in love. Usually doesn't last long enough for the marriage to even happen. And if it does, and they really are in love, mazel tov. May they live a very happy, healthy and long life together.

C.) Unless you're friends with your ex, don't continue to be involved. Step away politely and gingerly. No need to hurt feelings. Just untangle yourself.

I recommend buying her a dictionary for an engagement present. It's fiancé, not finance!

Ok so what i think:


I think that this is just her normal way that she reacts to anything. Stress ... etc.

All my friends are glad that i am not with her anymore.

I am happy as well. I just think that it is kinda funny.

My current Girlfriend, Nakia, said, "I'm just glad that you aren't with her anymore. Even if we end up not being together, I'll still be glad that you aren't with your ex."

So this is my closing comment.

*ends his posting on the matter*

While I may agree with your opinion of her, that's a bullshit answer. Putting her real name on the forum adds absolutely nothing to the discussion and shows only that you're every bit as juvenile as your ex. I feel sorry for the next woman you break up with because you'll probably pull the same crap again.

Sprocket, removing the real names would be the right thing to do.

The note tells me that you have some personal issues concerning your ex girlfriend and have decided to make yourself feel superior to her by airing her dirty laundry in front of a bunch of people who don't know her. You also seek to cause her further humiliation by posting her real name because you say you "tell it like it is" when asked to remove her name from the post.

If this offends you sorry, I just call them like I see them.

Not quite.

The name of her 'finance' (Freudian slip?) is still there.

Maybe it was a Freudian slip on her part?

Personally, it just reminds me of what's known in some parts of Dublin as a "Fibber's wedding". Basically, there's a bar that's been around forever for alternative/rocker/emo/whatever-kids-dressing-in-black-call-themselves-these-days kids called Fibber's. Frequently, they declare themselves (to all and sundry) as engaged within months of meeting, declaring that they know love and that this is it, with the breakup following not too far behind.

Actually, it'd be really interesting to see if this occurrence has any other names in other parts of the world. [Smile]

If the relationship is measured in months, I think it's too early to marry. Marriage is supposed to be a lifelong decision, and lifelong decisions deserve serious thought and consideration to make properly.
