Over Sharing on FB (a bit long)

So there is this girl who I went to high school with who has recently been over-sharing on FB, and I thought some of you might get a kick out of it. She seems a little BSC. . . I just don't understand why someone would feel the need to post this all over FB. Sure we all go through stuff, but good grief! Anyone else have any good FB over-sharing?

The first gem: 

has fallen in love... the man I love made me tear down my walls last night... He didn't want to be the first to say it... but finally... I told him how I felt and he admitted he loved me too! I am SOOO happy right now!!! I have finally met the man of my dreams : ) It's really too good to be true...
Next: 

just realized that I don't even know my boyfriend's birthday! Neither one of us bothered asking... I guess maybe neither one of us really care... Age is just a number... All I know is he is 7 years older and... I like it ; )

Author note:  If age is just a number. . . then why should the birthday matter?


Next:

found out his birthday and everything seems to make perfect sense now... If you believe in that astrology stuff... It says we're a perfect match... "soul mates made in heaven"... ha! I knew it!
The most recent post:

playing tug-of-war in my mind... I deeply want to be with this man, but the timing is all wrong : (

    Ha I know what you mean. One of my friends is even worse. One day she is single 12 hours later back in a relationship. ALL. THE. TIME.  With the same person mind you.  Constantly one day "Ohh I love him so much," the next "Omg like I can't believe how he treated me." Like the 23rd time is the charm...

    When is my wedding

    Oooh boy! She sounds like a real gem. People like that amuse me to no end, TBH. They get me through my days at work.

    Ba ha ha ha. I have a friend like this on fb too!

    "Find a good spouse, you find a good life—and even more: the favor of God!" Proverbs 18:22 (The Message)

    (This was hmmm...three days after she met this guy online. AND she is an in an out of relationships all the time type of person.)

    Just got done talking to _____ for 8 hours in a row.

    (Like the day after she met him.)

    She also wrote a giant long note about how amazing he is and how she could settle down with him and how "God wants them to be together."
    Yeah...about that...
    that's what she's said about the last two guys she's been sort of engaged to.
    I have just decided to ignore it until she's married. :p

    You know, I have fb friends like this too. Sometimes I give them side eyes and think "oh lordy"... but in all honesty, I will never delete them. They are the most entertaining to read.

    Haha Loopy and SeaTea took the words out of my mouth. Sometimes these can be pure entertainment.

    But cschiano- that's the best one I've seen yet! I don't have any friends that post anything like that. There's a couple that are "engaged" but keep breaking it off and then back on again. They complain about each other after they break up allll over facebook- and the best part is that they live together and still do this publically.

    Those are pretty funny. I don't really have the "over sharing" problem with any old friends. It's just one of those where they write about something really interesting or devastating, then they never touch on it again.
    "Found out AMAZING NEWS! I'm so excited!!" Then they never tell you why.
    Or something that sounds like their marriage is over or something awful, then you ask them about it and they're all "Oh, it's nothing, no worries." Well then don't freakin post about it. Sorry I cared!
    I guess I do have a couple of people with relationship posts like that. Just nothing to those extremes.
    Night swimming in the ocean= pretty sweet reception!

    Loopy!  That cracks me up!  I always feel horribly guilty watching my friends' pages that are like that.  Like, one girl who is constantly "madly in love" with a new person, and then a month later "my heart feels like it's been ripped out of my chest"..   and then a few days later "Feels like she's finally started breathing again"  ..  and then a month later "Has found the love of her life"   and "is now 'in a relationship'".

    I don't get it.  It's like watching a train wreck, but I just can't seem to look away.  :P  It's that kind of morbid amusement.

    Actually, I love these people of FB and I wouldn't even classify that really as oversharing.

    You haven't seen oversharing until someone is relaying info on a babies bowel movements.

    I wouldn't delete these from my friends because well, I'm too damn nosey. However, I would hide their updates and read through their page when I'm in a good mood. That's usually what I do with my friends whos drama, complaining, and "I iz so in love", talk drives me bonkers.

    and I agree with Hazel, your baby's bowel movement is overshare and an automatic hide. I don't care how awesome your other post are, the chance of seeing a second poop staus is too great.

    yeah, I didn't hide this girl -- she is hella entertaining. I usually only hide people for super-religious or ultra-conservative and/or anti-obama status messages. . . and usually only after repeated offenses. It is fine you feel that way, just don't proselytize me on facebook.

    Ohhh I know how this is.  I have a FB friend that thinks it is completely okay to share every single bit of her divorce on FB.  Craaaazy.

    I prefer people who overshare (it's just entertaining) over people who leave cryptic type status updates so people will ask them what's going on. And of course I fall right into it, cause I'm nosey!
