The Indirect Abusive Message
The status usually starts something like ‘you think you know someone until…’. We’ve all seen it and as soon as it appears it screams someone has been dating a cheater. These passive aggressive status updates generally relate to a current or ex lover are a mix of venting and indirect naming and shaming for the perpetrator. Expect plenty of ‘what happened’ from gossipy friends who want all the juicy details but deep down we all know these updates are an Facebook code for ‘I was dating a cheating dog and now he’s gonna pay!’.
