There's one in every crowd, or maybe more than one!

Among the friends I have on Facebook there is one in particular who, even though she is a smart lady, sure acts like she doesn't have a brain. Whatever she does, before making any decisions, she asks the world for advice. Things like: . What color is good for a bathroom, blue or green: . Which wallpaper do you like the best (shows choices) . I don't know how to pick things, which lipstick is right for me (shows three shades) She gets responses for tons of people, but it seems, like others who do the same thing, she avoids all the advice and does what she had planned to do in the first place. I know this is all done for attention, but she is wasting her friends' time. I am an adult and if I can't decide what color to paint a room, or which floor tile will look best - then I might as well give up or hire a designer! They say the squeaky wheel gets the grease - and it's true. Do you know anyone who does this and how do you react?

I don't really have THAT friend on Facebook. But the one I do have is always in need. Nothing is ever going right for her. Always needing help on something. She does have good days, but more bad than good. At first, I felt bad for her. Then I seen it was a common "normal" thing for her. I wish her the best, but I've stopped giving advice and helping her. I have my own issues lol

Sounds like there are a few of these people or similar anyway. They don't get my sympathy - but I do feel like a grown up when I read about their childish behaviors.

Yes, but her name is used so she doesn't even know it.

Hello and stopping by to do some reading here.A lot of them ask advice on things.

Yes! I have some friends like that too. Now, I do sometimes ask for opinions as well, but not on everything. I also certainly do not base my decision off of everyone else's opinions.

Everyone asks a question or two once in a while, but not on major money items...I don't respond often because I'd rather sit back and enjoy the fun!

She is asking everyone around for the attention that she gets.
