    “Your other wildly unstable friend updated the album “I Swear I’m Not Naked OMG You Guyssss” with a bunch of poorly-lit Photo Booth photos of her cleavage because she either just got dumped or constantly uses Facebook for superficial validation.”

    1000000% accurate.
    This list completely solidifies my feelings about deactivating.

    • Maddy

      Hahahahahahaha, “solidifies my feelings about deactivating.”
      “Those feelings are that I want to do it. But I never will.”

  • Martin

    So the person who wrote this thinks she is better than:
    – People who never left their home town.
    – People that have long lasting relationships.
    – People who have children.
    – People who are not pro-Obama left wing nuts
    – People who are overweight, have acne or are ugly.
    – People who watch Breaking Bad.
    – A lot of people

    • Molls

      Have you ever read this blog before? It’s her life, some people can relate to it. If you’re not one of them, go away.

    • Elle

      …and then post about it once an hour on Facebook. Yes.

    • The Internet

      So Martin here is offended b/c they are one or more of these:
      -Has never left their home town.
      -Has a long lasting relationship.
      -Has children.
      -Does not like Obama and is a right wring nut.
      -Is overweight, has acne or is ugly.
      -Watched Breaking Bad

      I am 100 percent sure you are trolling but in case not, you have missed the joke in a lot of these! I am the butt here.

      I am sad and alone, hence being jealous of the ex in a relationship. I stay inside and watch Breaking Bad hence my roommate calling me out on Facebook. I had acne hence the embarrassment over the middle school photos. Many of these are directed at your own FB wall, so to speak!

  • Hanna

    Don’t forget That Guy Who Internet Stalks you “likes” your photo/made a comment on it/posted on your wall/just poked you.

  • http://menarcheintheuk.tumblr.com Liz (@cheezliz)

    How about “Your recent ex liked an inane comment you posted in order to enter a contest for a $25 gift certificate”? SOMEONE EXPLAIN THIS ONE TO ME. Why??

  • http://twitter.com/Clowve Joyce (@Clowve)

    Why would you even be friends with your co-worker’s six year old daughter??

  • Macy Davidson

    “Friend request from person you were hoping so badly would never friend request you. Of course.”
    No shit. So true.
