Couple call off engagement after disappointing response to Facebook announcement

Couple call of engagement

A local couple has postponed plans to get married after a Facebook post announcing their engagement received only 92 likes.

Friends of the pair have today confirmed the separation was prompted by the poor performance of the post.

One source said “It’s heartbreaking. They were such a good couple but those statistics speak for themselves. You want to aim for 250 as a minimum for big news like an engagement. I got more than 70 for yesterday’s breakfast.

The couple were said to have been traumatised by the poor performance of the post.

“They couldn’t understand it,” the source confirmed.

“They did everything right. It was taken on a beach in Thailand with the words ‘she said yes’ written in the sand.

“You could see the ring on the finger clearly and she was even making that exaggerated shocked expression with her mouth. It ticked all the boxes.”

The couple this morning confirmed their intention to split on their wedding blog, citing ‘irreconcilable indifference’ amongst their friends.
