Today X girl,whose name I prefer to keep confidential as I fear for my safety,highlighted a very bright sound idea this arvo at the kitchen table. Holding on to her glass of red wine, she said:
"See how social networks can harm the relationships!"
I should have started from….well,the start!The X girl is seeing the Y boy,who has it all:handsome,employed,straight!As X girl is very curious to know more about the Y boy she goes on the internet,particularly Facebook…
[ Rule #1 If you don’t have your potential lover on Facebook added as a friend,don’t try to find him by his surname,city or company in which he works.If you have final succeed please calm your farm and stop clicking on his dp hysterically:private means private ]
…to search for any possible information about the accused .As the Y boy is a big shot, she finds a lot.One of her discoveries is his twitter account.Now the X girl knows every step of the Y boy.The Y boy is fucked.
[Rule #2 Put your twitter account on private if you wish to lie and don’t get in trouble at the same time]
The Y boy tells the X girl that he is having a calm weekend with family.But his twitter page says otherwise.The Y boy went away to some resort and the X girl didn’t know.The X girl gets upset.What a d*(|<head!
[Rule #3 If you don’t know how to use twitter,then blame yourself,not your angry girlfriend!Learn about "retweet",sugarbaby.Shame on you!]
It turned out to be that it was the Y boy’s mate who went away and the Y boy’s comment and the actual tweet appeared on his twitter page.The X girl feels stupid.The X girl calls her girlfriend.They both have a good laugh.The X girl decides to register on twitter,she’s not going to follow the Y boy.For now…!
I must say,social network is a hitting power. I’ve heard people getting together through Facebook.When I was 13 I had my full-of-puberty-blues-and-pimples Facebook flirts with my male classmate,Facebook helped me to maintain my love life (if you can call it that).By 15 I have started to hear about boys dumping their girlfriends through Facebook.Like classical greek drama,there was a certain sequence of actions that had to be undertaken.Only God knows how it happens, but Russell Brand took it further:he has informed Katy cupcake-lady Perry about their divorce through text!What a man!
There are more and more of these people,who prefer internet over face-to-face break-up.They’re poking out like teen pop singers these days(see.Taylor Swift,Justin Bieber,One Direction).Today it’s a common trait to get together and to break up through Facebook.I remember those old ,now fog-forgotten days when mobile phones were used as a pathetic,miserable way of finishing of your playground love(See. Air-Playground Love).Now it doesn’t seem as pathetic at all!If Russell Brand does it, then we,common people can do that too.If to dig even deeper into history-at the times when the pigeons used to transport letters and Juliette fell in love with Romeo,even letters were a wrongful way of splitting up.Ah,if someone would break up with me over a letter,preferably with wet dots on the paper,I would be delighted ( no,I have never been dumped trough phone,Facebook or any other sources of communication!).
As social networks ease our lives,they also make it more complicated!Millions of women are measuring love of their potential boyfriends over males activity on their Facebook pages- photos,statuses and links likes.“Oh,John Brewer has just liked my photo!Yay,it means I didn’t fuck up our date last night” or “He doesn’t love me anymore,he liked a stupid photo of some salad on instagram instead of my morning selfie” or “He sent me 5 kisses (xxxxx) last time I spoke to him,OMG he’s so keen on me!”.Unfortunately,I only have a chance to review this issue from girl’s side.I wonder what boys think about that?
Personally, I’ve got zero tolerance towards Facebook or mobile phones.Yes, I love sharing everything with everyone;yes,I enjoy following random people on Instagram;and with the new insta-launch of videos,sure, I can’t live a day without visiting James Franco’s page and watching his “good morning” video for 10010 time (@jamesfrancotv).But in regards of love I will always prefer real life over internet.I,myself never count the amount of kisses people send me or look through the list of who liked my photos!Even though I have just lied,in case you want to get it on with me please, use your brain,tongue (in a decent way) and music library.Sorry, we don’t accept Facebook,Twitter or Instagram. The rest is priceless ( I swear, I am a #1 fan of MasterCard commercials).
How crazy windy is it today?
Brr,time to check out my Facebook!
