We found a list online of weird things that can make people dislike you. Here are five we thought were pretty interesting . . .
- Opening up too much to someone you just met. You shouldn’t reveal anything too personal until you’ve known each other for a little while. You might think you’re just being open and honest, but it can actually come across as insecure.
- Asking too many questions. Most people like talking about themselves, so you SHOULD asked questions. But it’s a fine line, and you have to let them ask questions too, so they don’t feel like you’re just grilling them.
- Always saying yes when someone asks for a favor. A recent study found it can make it seem like you have ulterior motives. So it’s okay to say no sometimes, especially if there’s a legitimate reason you can’t do something.
- Playing hard to get. Sometimes it can work, but so can being honest when you like someone. A recent study found people were more prone to like someone if they thought the person liked THEM first.
- Posting too many selfies. Especially for people you just met. A recent study found that photos taken from four-to-five feet away make you seem more trustworthy and competent than photos taken from 18 inches away.
We found a list online of the most annoying types of Facebook friends. And it’s pretty good, because they left off the really obvious ones like the friends who post too many photos of their kids.
Here’s the top ten . . .
- The friend who always falls for fake news stories. It happens a lot right now because of the election. A lot of the political memes you see are filled with made-up facts.
- The friend who constantly endorses the lame pyramid scheme they bought into. A lot of them tend to be health and fitness related.
- The friend who changes their profile picture too much. Once or twice a month is fine, but five times a month is a little much.
- The friend who uses GoFundMe to fund everything. Like for vacations and other stuff they should pay for themselves.
- The friend who’s intentionally vague about good news. They post something like, “Just got huge news, stay tuned.” So you have no idea what they’re talking about, but you feel obligated to like it anyway.
- The friend you don’t know very well, who starts liking photos you posted five years ago. So you suddenly feel like you’re being stalked. And it’s even worse if you’re a woman and it’s a BIKINI shot from five years ago.
- The friend who has an opinion about everything. Any time you post something that’s even slightly controversial, they’re all over it.
- The friend who posts pointless hashtags. Like a photo of a sunset, with five hashtags that say things like “blessed” and “beautiful.”
- The friend who asks questions on Facebook when they could just google the answer. Like asking for restaurant suggestions instead of checking Yelp.
- The friend who invites you to events on the other side of the country. They’re just inviting everyone they know to save time.
Sure, your unconditional love of bacon might give you heart disease . . . but it could also help you find ACTUAL love.
Oscar Mayer released a DATING app yesterday.
It’s called Sizzl, and it only matches you up with other people obsessed with BACON.
Obviously it’s a marketing ploy, but it IS an actual app.
It matches you with people based on your bacon preferences, and a ton of people are already signed up.
When you build your profile, EVERY question is about bacon.
First it asks if you prefer pork or turkey bacon . . . which should actually be a question on EVERY dating site.
Because if you say turkey, you’re un-datable.
It also asks if you like thick cut . . . smoked . . . maplewood . . . or low sodium bacon.
Then you have to say whether you like it chewy, crispy, or burnt.
And the last question asks what you’d do if you were on a date, and there was one strip of bacon left . . . would you take it, let your date have it, or share it with them? Apparently they’re expecting people to go on a lot of breakfast dates.
You can download the app at FindBaconLove.com.
So far it’s only available for iPhone users.
A high school senior in New Jersey named Patrick Smith asked a girl to prom in front of 2,000 people at some sort of pep rally in April. And now the video of it that his friend posted is going viral, because she REJECTED him.
He was holding a microphone, and when she said she already had a date, the whole crowd reacted. Luckily they’re still friends, and he found another date. Apparently getting shot down didn’t turn him off of the whole elaborate prom-posal thing though.
He asked the other girl by showing up to her house with a giant sign.
There’s a new video of a confused little kid seeing a payphone for the first time. He’s about eight, and has no idea what he’s looking at. Eventually he asks if it’s an “old-fashioned” phone, and his mom can’t stop laughing at him.
