Most Helpful Girl

  • #1 Status updates. Frequently add vague status updates on facebook, knowing fully well that most of their friends won’t know what they mean or what they’re trying to say. And yet they pretend like it wasn’t meant for everyone, or worse, they wait until loads of people start asking them what they meant before they explain themselves.

    #2 Problem solving. They intentionally flaunt their problems and issues to everyone, be it scars or love triangles. They share their issues with online friends they barely know even though they can’t get any real help there. They love playing the victim and they shamelessly crave for sympathy. But really, if they truly want to feel any better they talk to a good friend over phone or in person. Flaunting their heartbreaks or scars online or in public.

    #3 New look. They upload new photos on Facebook all the time, letting people know every single thing they’re doing.

    #4 The wannabe braggart. They brag about something when it’s not really such a big deal. I’m an emo chick… I’m a metal chick… I’m a gaming chick…Etc.

    #5 Important. Their problems and moments of happiness should be shared by all their friends. Their friends have to feel their pleasure or pain, or they believe they’re terrible friends.

    #6 The center of the world. They feel really miserable if they aren’t the center of attention with their friends.

    #7 They’re nice to everyone. Not because they love all people or they’re a politician, but because they want everyone they meet to love them and crave their attention! They go out of their way to be really nice to people they meet for the first time, and they end up taking all the good friends who know them for granted.

    #8 Temperamental. Their mood swings change constantly.

    #9 White lie. They make up stories about boyfriends, friends, vacations or shopping sprees every now and then just to look cooler than everyone else. They constantly have the urge to feel superior to all their friends.
