Hello;

I have a friend who has a dilemma, but doesn't go online herself much (except for facebook), so I told her I would post this question.

She has a very good (male) friend who is in town for an event over the weekend. She has known about this for months and they have had many conversations making plans.

She picked him up at the airport earlier today and they went out for lunch, she knew he had other plans for tonight, but tomorrow they have plans for much of the afternoon (and possibly dinner later), they had a great time and talked about lots of different things, including inside jokes. She said they had a great time and I could hear it in her voice.

Problem -- he posted to FB tagging her at the airport, a friend of his responded asking why he was in town, he told him about the event and then named another friend (male) that he was meeting for a beer.

My friend's nose is a little out of joint in that he also didn't include her name as she was definitely there, with the other friend for a beer.

I can see both sides, she doesn't think it was done for any reason, just "one of those things", but her feelings are still a little hurt.

I suggested tomorrow when they get together, she should casually bring it up, not in an accusatory way or to put him on the defensive.

She stressed to me again what a great time they had, so I'm leaning on "sleep on it, and see if it still bothers you in the morning", I told her I would post her question here.

Side note: she is very sensitive and let's small things bother her.

He can post what he chooses to his wall!
If a Facebook post upsets her that much, she should delete her account.

Seriously?
She is upset over something so trivial as not being "tagged" on a facebook post?
She needs to stay off of facebook and learn to be less sensitive.
Some people just don't 'tag' everyone, it happens, it is not an
earth shattering experience and should not cause this much of an issue.

She was already tagged- double tagging a person on one post is just lame. Tell her to chill. lol

Not being mentioned makes one feel like they dont matter or count.
Her feelings are certainly valid....but he has his reasons...prob some girl
he doesnt want to know.

Ya think? She's perilously close to drama queen.

Tell her to put her big girl panties on and act like an adult.

I would recommend that she not mention it. Doing otherwise, seems too needy of attention. She was tagged at the airport. Nothing more is required. Wondering if they are friends with benefits? Sounds like it.

what if he did mention her and sounded a bit giddy- not knowing how she feels,,,,now she may be complaining "all we had was a lunch" now he's getting all serious"

you mix estrogen and insecurity together - it's a lethal emotion bomb ready to go off at any moment!
