Unlike women, men rarely call one another up to gossip about Facebook posts. But don’t think men aren’t paying attention! They take note—silently, slowly—so they can know who to stay away from in real life! Here are 14 types of posts that are making men run for the hills.

    Aren’t we forgetting:
    1. Daily profile pic changes
    2. Thrice-Daily posts (with color pic) of what’s for breakfast, lunch, and dinner?
    3. Overly “poking” [a fella who takes weeks to poke back]
    4. Overly “liking” EVERYTHING [a fella posts on his page]. I knew this was outta control when a friend of mine posted the untimely passing of his mother; and got 60 “likes” (mainly from females! :/ )
    5. Tagging ourselves in friends’ wedding pictures….then gushing for no less than a week how ‘amazing’ the whole experience is.
    6. Regularly posting your relationship status as ‘single’.

    I could go on and on….but when I realize how pathetically annoying it is to have grown friends (over 25 years old) who do this – and so much more- I may be tempted to close my page! “Lol”

    So facebook is a dating site? Funny I thought it was a way to stay in touch with family, friends and old classmates. This author is reaching.

  • Meka X

    Women who take the same pic of themselves sitting in their car, everyday and the one’s who caption “I’m still pretty all natural.”

  • Nina

White men dating black women, white men date black women, No one night stand. serious relationship

  • Sagittarius81

    All I’m gonna say is that #13′s pic is beautiful. That is all.

  • yeppers

    Ahhhh…Im not meeting anyone on facebook/twitter anyway so what I put on my profile is MY business. I always say use common sense on these social networking sites anyway. But Its not match dot com and I wont be treating my tweets like thats what they are for. I think weirdos tweet/message people in hopes of hooking up so no thank you.

  • Stupid is as Stupid Does

    Another dumb posting from Madam Noire.

  • Rashida

    I will put what I want online and if someone has a problem with it kindly delete yourself. If a man is that simple he can pass me up anyway. Better to not be friends with your man online on social media anyhow!

      And that’s why you’re probably single.You can’t take constructive advice. But if you like your situation, keep on doing what you’re doing. The women that do take advice will have a huge edge on you.

    Furthermore if a man has to stalk a woman’s page to see everything she post then he is just as lonely and desperate as she is!

    • http://www.facebook.com/jocelyn.hicks2 Jocelyn Melinda Tisdale-Hicks

      They should make a perfect couple!

  • Doc Samson

    Hold up. so the author doesn’t want posts on politics or inequality because Facebook posts should be “short and sweet”. Wow.

  • DoinMe

    Who’s on Facebook trying to find a man anyways? I use my FB page to communicate with friends and family, not to find a date. I don’t do men who try to pick me up online. It’s creepy.

    • Chey

      say it!

    • YES gAWD

      OK!!! I hate when people message me for hook up purposes and this will get you ignored like a mug. I dont have time for that…and it ALWAYS be somebody that you wasnt thinkin about in school LIKE THAT trying to to holla for WHATEVER REASON. UGH!!!

      • chanela

        right! that said, i think a madam noire posts for MEN should be next!! they do some triflin mess too!

  • The Rain

    Stop being cliché. Once again a man is trying to give you inside information on how men think and operate and but because it’s not what you want to hear, you don’t want to accept it and you blow it off.

  • pickneychile

    Bump that, it’s not just men who find posts like these annoying. Another thing that is lame is when people post pictures of them going to work/church/meetings/etc captioned like “work flow” or “church flow.” It’s just extremely cheesy to me. The hashtags are corny too.

    “Here’s the thing, if you were actually thinking of crawling into a hole, you’d just do it.”

    LMAO! that was a funny line.

  • NeaJ

    I honestly don’t see anything wrong with some of the things on this list. What’s wrong with quoting song lyrics? If someone’s song lyrics describe how you feel at a certain time then why not quote it? It’s not about being unoriginal. Quoting song lyrics is more about feeling the same way the writer of the song felt. Plus, we all can’t be brilliant song writers. But I do agree that if someone constantly posts depressing things or rants on a regular basis then you should just ‘unfriend’ them.

    • RealE

      It’s swankier to post a youtube video of whatever you’re forcing us to 1/2-way learn anyhow!

  • York

    You forgot endless pics of food, not cropping your arm or raggedy house out of a self pic, and multiple updates regarding mani/pedis.

    IJS.

  • Eri Cad

    I read the article and by read I mean skipped through the pages barely reading the subject lines or the words underneath because it was evident to me how inane each one was. 1. So this is suppose to be YET ANOTHER laundry list of things women do to alienate men? Because even when I’m on facebook my primary concern is all the men who could be reading my status updates, looking at my pictures or noting my check ins. 2. Who wants to talk to any dude who is paying that much attention anyway? They call that stalking in some circles. 3. If u don’t like what I post there is this thing on facebook now called HIDE. 4. Everything doesn’t revolve around how to entice a man, get a man, keep a man.

  • GirlSixx

    HOnestly, my teenage daughter and her friends tend to do MOST OF THE ABOVE, but as a grown woman it’s not a good look AT ALL.
    One of my fb friend is notorious for posting up everything from what she’s cooking for dinner to how she’s feeling that day or moment and sending subliminal relationship messages that she copies from tumbler. *rollseyes*

  • IllyPhilly

    Why am I taking FB so serious?

    • IllyPhillyIsSoFunny

      ROTFL! I’m not tellin any of my peeps I read this article either! Glad to know I haven’t ‘violated’ any of these edicts! :)

  • BYG

    Simple solution. Just delete them. Works every time for me :)

  • Puppies!HA!

    This article is more about the personal distaste this writer has to such FB post. Seems like you have the umbrella of ‘article’ to go on your own rants. This article has nothing to do with men. Let people do what they please with their profiles….and you relax and quit being judgmental.

    • Jensunderbelly

      Right. I personally don’t have a Facebook page because these things from either sex would be annoying and pathetic but clearly the writer of this more or less just doesn’t like women talking about anything in general and feels a woman is at her best silent.

      Women who care about what whether or not men are wanting to date them based on their Facebook comments seems pretty pathetic to me (hence my arrival at this misogynist article to begin with).

  • ThaVoiceoftheVoiceless

    I totally agree that it’s highly unattractive when women give nickames to their profile name. That right there let’s you know that you are ghetto and ratchet. Also, us men find it unattractive when women are constantly posting about them wanting to get married and have kids. Yes, thats everyones dreams, but doing it everyday makes you look desperate and that you will try to trap and push any man you meet into doing something they arent ready for so soon.

      Nicknames are a sign of immaturity when adults put it in between there names. Just as well as shooting a “birdie” or gang signs at the club on pics are
