DATING + INSTAGRAM / FACEBOOK / TWITTER
Dating in the early 2000s era is hard to establish and hard to maintain a relationship especially with recent enhancements in technology making information more easily accessible than ever. The mystery of dating has been eliminated through kik, social media, and online dating sites because you do not get the same aura as meeting someone. Now you can check someone out, know most of their business, and all their past drama all before you even arrive to the dinner table.
As of my personal life, none of my relationships of substance occurred without the help of a little social media mingling so I am by no means bashing it, but when does it become too much?
I follow my man on Instagram and we have our cutesy posts and shit, and we’re in a relationship on Facebook even though I do not go on there to see anything he does. Is that necessary to mark your territory? Is this the new leaving your “Victoria’s Secret” lingerie over his house?
Why even take a picture of your life every waking second? Keep a little privacy about yourself. & if you have half naked pictures on your IG or FB – quit reading: you’re purely online for the attention and not to date so this is NOT for you.
Does it matter what your man posts, and should he care about what you post or other people’s responses at that? Which matter more, his online personality, or how he treat you in person? Is it just another thing to argue about, a way to publicize your relationship or just a way or protecting yourself? Now-a-days men can get caught up by a mere screenshot, whereas back in the day, a girl would have to try to check your phone, if she could.
Will the internet ultimately ruin a good relationship, or prolong a bad one? Maybe enhance a better one, or worsen a struggling one?
I have always been curious of these statistics.
