7 Types Of Annoying Facebook Couples..Are You One Of Them?

7 Types Of Annoying Facebook Couples..Are You One Of Them?

We’re so happy you found that special person to share your life with, it’s not easy and not everyone is as lucky as you. Its lovely to hear your getting on well and to know that your relationship is so perfect.. But seriously, give it a rest.

Sometimes you love something so much you want to shout it from your virtual rooftop and that’s understandable and its great honestly, but it gets on people’s  tits nerves!

Personally, I think it rings alarm bells when people need to declare their love constantly or live out their ups and downs publicly for all to see. That’s just my opinion.

Do you disagree? do you think it’s perfectly acceptable for people to constantly declare their love on Facebook making most of us cringe? Well I am afraid your probably a culprit yourself.

Here are a 7 examples of the worst offences…

The Milestoners

10 year anniversary, 1 week anniversary, birthdays, Christmas, New Year etc etc.

**** I love my Boy so much, Cant believe how far we have come. This has been an amazing year and we have so much to look forward to in the next one. I have never been happier. I am so lucky to be blessed with a boy like him <3<3<3 

The Declarers

**** I love You ❤

***No I love you baby, come back to bed

**** I love you more snugglekins, I’m just going to run a bath, join me 😉

Seriously, she can probably hear you if you said it out loud, she’s just in the other room.

The Checkerinerers

**** has just checked in at ‘The big bed with my boo’ with ***

**** has just checked in at ‘on the sofa watching a film’ with ***

Ahh thanks for letting us know! the suspense was killing us!

The On/ Off’ers

**** Is now Single

**** Is in a complicated relationship

**** Is Married to ***

**** Is now single

And so on and so on. Stop being so impulsive, give it at least a minute or two after an argument before you decide to be ‘free and single once again’

The Jokers

We all love an inside joke, but constant inside jokes between you and your partner are boring to look at. We all just think it’s some kind of weird sex thing you have going on.

**** Penguins LMAO <3<3<3

The Happy Snappers

A picture of you and your partner sharing a magical kiss or laughing together is adorable and really cute to see. But not daily, it’s putting us off our dinner. Oh and PLEASE stop with the pictures of you two ‘in the big bed’ not my idea of romance.

The Boring

****Excited  for TV and pizza night with the hubby!”

*** “Gunna cook a big dinner for the wife” 

Like you do every day? you certainly know how to spoil a girl!…actually shit, I watched TV last night… and at some point today I am going to eat dinner too! I should update my status so everyone can see how fun being single is.



Swinging; Are You Interested? Could You Do It? Do You Indulge?

Last night I watched an interesting documentary on swinging (Also known as partner swapping, wife swapping) I was fascinated to find that there are many different reasons people choose to take part in these activities. Some people are just curious and keen to explore to find out what all the fuss is about, some looking to experience new and exciting friendships with the view to fulfil their fantasies, some couples engage in these activities because they believe it will strengthen their relationships. When I decided to write this post I done a bit of snooping on the web and I was interested to find there are even websites dedicated to swingers, to help them meet other swingers like Swinger Nation Ireland there are chat rooms and forums where swingers openly speak about meet ups and other activities related to swinging.

Throughout the programme and my research on the subject this morning, one thing stood out to me, these couples maintained happy, strong relationships built on mutual understanding and in my opinion it seems the swinging was not seen as an act of sex but something fun to do with someone you love.

It also came to my attention that there were many single people females & males that took part in swinging and they were equally as involved as the couples. One lady spoke about how she generally despised the dating process and would rather meet at swinger parties/meetings where it is acceptable  to have sex on the spot with whoever they meet and feel attracted to.

I have always been very broad-minded and respect everyone’s lifestyle decisions.  I do understand  why swinging appeals to couples, as long as both partners are happy, its something you both want to explore and you can establish the difference between making love and having sex,  I say go for it!

So whats your take on swinging? Are you interested? Do you indulge? Have you tried it? 


S.A,D: Singles Awareness Day. Altenative To Valentines Day For Singles

S.A,D: Singles Awareness Day. Altenative To Valentines Day For Singles

Well, it’s the 1st of February and only 13 more sleeps until V DAY!  According to Wikipedia its  ’A day for celebrating love and affection between intimate companions’

It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, chocolates, jewellery and other gifts, including engagement rings in many cases.

But for us singletons, its S.A.D  ’Singles Awareness Day’ On Singles Awareness Day, single people can choose whether to celebrate or commiserate their single status, this is usually done in groups of people or friends. Some people  want to remind romantic couples that they don’t need to be in a relationship to celebrate life .

Luckily for me I will be in Thailand on the big day this year! but usually  me and my single friends we will  get together treat ourselves, drink cocktails and have fun to celebrate our single status! but it all depends on you! there are plenty of options available so there’s no reason to be alone on VDAY or S.A.D!

So, what could you be doing on S.A.D ? 

Why not have a look at local events in your area, there are many places that hold singles night’s and fun parties and hosted events for those of us in singletown!

Or if you are feeling unsociable because you don’t have anybody to spoil this Valentine’s Day, why not take it as an opportunity to spoil yourself? No-one deserves it more!  Treat yourself to a bit of pampering, cook yourself a nice meal or have a relaxing bath with candles and a glass of champagne. With no one else’s feelings to consider, you’re free to spend the day doing whatever you want and to make it a special day just for you.

Alternatively, If there’s someone you’ve got your eye on and you think they may be interested too, why not take Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to express your interest? Send an old-fashioned anonymous card or just a flirty email and set the wheels in motion.

Or you could always sign up for online dating!   Try Plenty Of Fish – POF is FREE and it’s the number one dating site and is still growing. The site grows, on average, 30% every year! 32 million members, 15 million messages sent per day, 30 000 new sign ups per day, and over 1.16 million average daily visits per month!  What are you waiting for?? Let the thought of a potential new romance brighten up your day!

Whatever it is you decide to do on 14th of February, Don’t forget to Love yourself!

Much Love xx
