Why do people do this?

There is a girl on my facebook that broke up with her boyfriend and every status was completely slamming him, she said so much mean stuff...... Now they're back together. How can you publically embaress someone and then just get back together like nothing happened?

  • I think ppl consider it like talking to a friend, venting. It's a bizarre social phenomenon! I'm sure glad it wasn't around when I was younger!! My great gram said never put in writing what you can't say to someone's face.

  • People forget that they are telling the world their dirt.

  • The other question should be why would anyone want to get back with someone who just publicly embarrassed them. Sounds like both them need to "grow up"

  • Can you say "Issues Times 2"....

    I can only imagine what all of her friends must have been thinking -- It seems normal to post a well placed "what a jerk" comment, but to keep posting one blast after another? Eventually SHE starts to look like a freaking psycho who can't handle life and like someone who intends to get what she wants by beating him down if necessary. Than throw into that mix a guy who is not only okay with her ripping him publicly, but he's willing to step back into a life with someone who's obviously very angry, controlling, and unstable -- that makes his self esteem and self worth seem questionable at best.
    They might actually deserve each other.

  • Because people like that are desperate for attention and will do anything to get it, including slamming a boyfriend and then getting back together with him.

  • i had a friend do that on facebook before. I commented telling her how immature she was being & that her posts really don't help her image & just make her look crazy, so she blocked me. HAHA.
