RANT: “People that ask you to ‘LIKE’ their photos on Facebook”

It’s that time of the month again!

and no, I’m not talking about menstrual cycles– I’m talking about my monthly rant this week.

All jokes aside, the topic of discussion I bring to you today is one that will forever remain high up on my list of things that just really fucking grind my gears.

If there is one thing in this world that I can not stand, it’s attention seekers, but there is a specific type of breed of attention seeking that I am referring to, and if you are on Facebook a lot then perhaps you’ve had this happen to you too…

There have been many repeat occurrences in the past where I have been on Facebook and received instant messages from both girls and guys whom I barely know (and often times have trouble remembering how they got on my friends list in the first place) usually saying something along the lines of “Hey, can you like and comment on my new profile picture? 🙂  🙂


First of all, if you are reading this and you recognize yourself as one of the types of people who does this, you need to STOP.   Please, do the rest of the world a favor. It reeks of desperation and looks totally pathetic. If I wanted to ‘like’ or comment on your picture I would have done it a long time ago, and if I haven’t done so already then lets face facts– I probably don’t find you that attractive.

It’s like “likes” and “comments” on photos have become this generation’s new measurement system for self value and esteem, and I find that It’s just friggin’ ridiculous… that’s like constantly going around asking strangers to tell you that you’re pretty/ attractive in real life. Not cool guys, not cool. If you walked around doing that all the time people would begin to think you’re insecure.

The funniest part about that is that if in fact you are the type of person to do this, you can’t even use the counter argument that you “don’t care what other people think of you” because that would contradict the fact that you go around asking people to like/comment your stupid photos all day.

Look, I don’t know maybe it’s just my generation that can relate to this but either way if anybody can relate than I’m sure you’ll agree with me on how annoying it is. The point is folks, learn to love yourself first and stop seeking other’s approval. I know we all struggle with insecurities in some ways, but just imagine… if this post can convince at least one person to start loving themselves, it might just be one less asshole making me waste three seconds of my life reading their request for me to comment on their pics.

and that’s a wrap! Keep checking back for more rants, and thanks for reading this week’s “Rantastic Rant”
