My good friend who I've known since we were about 10 is driving me
Mad, we used to be really close ringing each other all the time, going out, holidays ect. Over the last 4-5 years we aren't as close however speak, text regularly. Over the last 2 months which coincides with her getting a new boyfriend, the only reason she texts is to ask me to like her Facebook photos! Never a hello, how are you, just straight to point "hello will u like my profile picture" it's so annoying!
So I've just been ignoring the messages, but they are coming daily argh

Jesus......... does she have low self esteem?

TaliDiNozzo Tue 11-Apr-17 19:18:52

People really do that?! How pathetic. I would ignore those texts or maybe just text back asking how she is etc but make no reference to Facebook.

Poor friend. I think shes not much confidence.

pictish Tue 11-Apr-17 19:23:09

Really? I'd just ignore those messages entirely.

bellalou1234 Tue 11-Apr-17 19:23:11

I normally just text back later saying how you doing ect... I don't think she has got low self esteem to be honest, I think it's more to do with the boyfriend and trying to make herself
Look popular, it's just really winding me up

That is seriously weird!!

Booboostwo Tue 11-Apr-17 19:49:07

Sounds like a spam. Could someone have hacked her account?

bellalou1234 Tue 11-Apr-17 19:52:46

No she texts me after changing her profile picture

CaulkheadNorth Tue 11-Apr-17 19:58:17

I don't think that's normal thing to do. Maybe suggest meeting up so you/she have something else to talk about

Munchkin1412 Tue 11-Apr-17 20:46:50

Eh? That's really odd! Who cares how many likes any pictures get?

Does she do photoshopped pouty selfies or are they just bog standard here's me looking like a thumb selfies?

bellalou1234 Tue 11-Apr-17 20:59:10

There normally very glamorous photoshopped photos, some with her daughter, some with her new boyfriend, in addition she'll ask me to like various quotes, about things like spoil your woman and she'll be there or shite along those lines

God she sounds like hard work

pictish Tue 11-Apr-17 22:22:52

Steadfastly ignore any requests to like anything on fb. Reply normally to anything else. She'll soon get the message.

ThePigletatwork Tue 11-Apr-17 22:27:06

Perhaps she doesn't really understand how it all works?

user1483705947 Tue 11-Apr-17 22:29:21

That's pathetic! Sounds a bit of a loser tbh.

LockedOutOfMN Tue 11-Apr-17 22:31:37

Agree with Pictish. She might prefer to post on Instagram and get lots of likes there.

MycatsaPirate Tue 11-Apr-17 22:33:55

I had someone who used to message me and ask me to 'like' her photos and she would like mine back. However, she's a 14 year old girl, the dd of one of my friends. I just messaged her back and was very nice but said I'm 48 and I don't have time for this sort of stuff!

If it was an adult doing it I'd probably just say 'are you on fucking glue?'

FamilySpartan Tue 11-Apr-17 22:40:52

What? Is she seven years old? hmm

LexieLulu Tue 11-Apr-17 22:48:42

I didn't realise adults did this! Just laugh and ignore her

ProseccoBitch Tue 11-Apr-17 22:51:34

Is she 12?

mumgointhroughtorture Wed 12-Apr-17 00:14:15

I have a friend who used to do this because it brings the pic up in her other friends feed so then the ones who haven't seen it may see it so she gets more likes.

She has self esteem issues tho and I've stopped engaging with her now because she's the type to make you feel like shit to gain herself attention. Definitely narcisstic coz now I'm not there to make her feel better I'm surplus to requirement.

If she is a good friend, as you say, tell her she is being a twit, and stay off Facebook. Hang out in real life and tell her she looks great.
If she isn't that good of a friend, just ignore her.
