Oh, the Tackiness!

Last week I finally took the plunge and joined Facebook. I must admit that it's a great little tool - definitely on the I-wish-I'd-thought-of-that list. It's ridiculously addictive, so I have to be extra careful to ensure that I don't wind up spending hours on it, delving deeply into friends of friends of friends lists. :P At the same time, I'm glad I joined because I've been able to catch up with friends that I haven't spoken to in AGES. A definite plus. But I digress, and that's not the real point of this post. Now for the real point:

I wish people on Facebook wouldn't include pictures of themselves on their wedding day as part of their main profile icon. It is SO FREAKING TACKY!!! I mean, it's fantastic that so-and-so got married, but do they really have to flaunt their blasted wedding pictures? The funny thing is this is a more common occurrence among the girls. I suppose that girls have this need to show superiority over other girls, and this is one way to do it. To show one's apparent success in life by having gotten married and advertising it. A total in-your-face to all the other girls from high school or university or whatever that are still single. What's up with that? If you're spending that much time flaunting the fact that you're married, maybe that means you're not so comfortable in your relationship. You know, kind of like when people who buy big SUVs are clearly over-compensating... ;-)
