This stupid FB thing of sharing 5 photos which make you happy.

My best friend who has always been more like family has included 3 other friends of hers in the pics she chose and none of me!

sad

WHY!??

I'm 4o frigging 2 I should know better but WHY!

I support her so much. We have loads of fun together.

Why aren't I in her fave memory photos?

It's facebook... I'm guessing the photos were chosen for how good she looks in them more than anything ;-)

ClawHandsIfYouBelieveInFreaks Mon 17-Nov-14 21:44:57

Ah! You're right aren't you Scissors! I'm going back to check!

ClawHandsIfYouBelieveInFreaks Mon 17-Nov-14 21:48:39

Yes. She looks very nice in all pics. grin Thank you. I feel less neglected now.

sunflower49 Mon 17-Nov-14 21:49:51

I think if I had a very close friend that might bother me, too. I wouldn't say anything. I also agree with scissors!

Is she perhaps trying to appease or please/praise some others in the pics? Whereas she doesn't feel she needs to do that with you.

I was going to guess the same

Whenever I see two people I don't know, in one profile pic, I always say 'I bet the account belongs to the best looking one'.

I'm usually right grin

sunflower49 Mon 17-Nov-14 21:52:16

worra I once put my profile pic as me and my stunning friend, then changed it in case folk thought I was pretending to be her!

OliviaBenson Mon 17-Nov-14 21:55:59

Oh god- I've also has angst over these stupid photos- I did mine, put one with my best friend and I have been really upset because she hasn't even 'liked' it. (This is someone who likes everyone's stupid status' all the time) I'd give up fb if it wasn't for a business I have on there.

We both are being unreasonable, it still hurts though!

BlinkAndMiss Mon 17-Nov-14 21:56:15

Definitely a vanity thing - I've not done my 5 photos after being nominated because the photos on my profile that make me smile are the ones that I look crap in, the nice ones don't seem to have my DH, DSis or my good friends. I wouldn't care if it was one or two but 5 crap photos all together will make me look even worse.

I know I'm BU smile and very vain. I'm still ignoring the nomination!

Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

That feels a little better.

Facebook - just WHY people WHY??

Get rid of it.

ClawHandsIfYouBelieveInFreaks Mon 17-Nov-14 22:00:05

Chipping I use it to keep in touch with friends abroad and in other cities but I NEVER participate in these shit fads...I am participating by default now I am annoyed but ya know....shit happens.

sunflower49 Mon 17-Nov-14 22:01:57

I have got rid of it before, reinstated it recently because I'm a member of groups on there to do with my interests and past-times, and because so mnay of my friends use it as their main form of communication! Also I work online and I like to chat as I work-it's a good medium for that. All in all my life was easier with it than without it.

I rarely put up status or look at anybody else's status, and I haven't bothered with this photo thing either, I couldn't pick just five and I'd be scared of offending someone!

It is funny to look at other people's, though e.g I have a friend who's in love with another friend, everyone knows it and she's in every one of his photos. I did a chuckle at that.

Hopgreys Mon 17-Nov-14 22:02:40

Could you send her a lighthearted text saying why do I not feature in your photos?

Agree that these things can be hurtful and we know we shouldn't get upset but we do, it's human nature.

ClawHandsIfYouBelieveInFreaks Mon 17-Nov-14 22:02:56

I might jokingly ask her why I'm not in any of her stupid fucking photos that make her smile.

grin

ClawHandsIfYouBelieveInFreaks Mon 17-Nov-14 22:03:08

I won't really but I am tempted.

WalkingInMemphis Mon 17-Nov-14 22:04:35

It's really childish...but yanbu (sorry, you wanted to bu!)

My best friend recently did it and I actually held my breath when I was looking at her 5 because I was hoping she'd included me, because I knew i'd feel hurt if she hadn't...how sad is that?

Hopgreys Mon 17-Nov-14 22:04:37

ps I'm hurt because no-one has nominated me for the photo thing, how sad is that blush! Same thing happened with the water bucket nonsense. I did ask a couple of friends why they hadn't nominated me over that and they just said that they'd assumed that someone else had done.

Hopgreys Mon 17-Nov-14 22:05:21

We are clearly all sad together! Does make me feel a bit better though tbh to know I'm not alone.

ClawHandsIfYouBelieveInFreaks Mon 17-Nov-14 22:06:55

Hop nobody has nominated me either. Nor did they for the bucket thing.

psychomum5 Mon 17-Nov-14 22:08:25

No one has tagged me in the five pics thing yet.....I am feeling all offended too for not even being in peoples MINDS to think about tagging me, let alone being in any pics.

<pathetic wail>

wink

WalkingInMemphis Mon 17-Nov-14 22:08:32

The only person who nominated me for the bucket challenge was MIL, after she herself had been nominated by a load of her facebook friends getting sadder by the second

sunflower49 Mon 17-Nov-14 22:08:59

All mine'll be of me I think.That'll solve the issue won't it grin

saintlyjimjams Mon 17-Nov-14 22:09:26

ha ha hopgreys you are me. Tick on both accounts. I think a lot of people nominate family on these fads and I have no siblings. That's my excuse anyway. smile

Mind you last time I was nominated for a FB fad (things to be thankful for) I was having a shit time with disabled ds1 and gave up after one day....

Hopgreys, I never get nominated for anything either, not even the stupid status changes to raise awareness for something by making completely obscure statements unrelated to whatever it is they are supposedly raising awareness for...

I've concluded I'm just too cool and everyone is far too much in awe of me to dare challenge me to anything wink

ClawHandsIfYouBelieveInFreaks Mon 17-Nov-14 22:12:37

Sunflower FANTASTIC idea! I'm going to put 5 up of me with myself!

Me having a cup of tea.
Me asleep.
Me having my hair done.
Me eating chocolate.
Me stroking the cat.

Might send my treacherous mate a message in it's way!
