Engagement cancelled after receiving only 267 likes


Manchester couple Peter Thape (25) and Murial Hislop (24) have broken off their engagement after seeing their Facebook announcement only get 267 likes.

Peter assumed that their thousands of Facebook friends would swoon over the engagement, and had run to the expense of hiring a professional photographer to record the whole moment. The lack of likes plunged the couple into a deep depression, which led to numerous arguments, and an inevitable split.

‘I thought we’d get 500 likes easily, but we barely cleared 250. The whole relationship was a huge mistake,’ said Thape.

‘I knew I’d done the right thing ending it, because the Facebook news of our split only got 128 sad faces,’ added Thape.
