Social Media and Relationships
Social Media and Relationships

Social media has changed the dating landscape FOREVER…and not always in good ways.

From FemaleFirst comes a list of how we believe Facebook, Twitter and the like are damaging our relationships:

1.  It’s too easy to find out when the other person lied to you about where they were going or what they were doing.

2.  When you’re first dating someone, you can go through their old posts and interactions and see if they used the same lines and moves on someone else.

3.  You initially like someone because you’re compatible with their PROFILE . . . but it turns out not to represent who they really are.

4.  The other person is TOO obsessed with social media, and focuses on it more than they focus on you.

5.  Seeing endless photos of your friends on vacations and at parties with their significant others makes you feel like your relationship is boring.

So…what say you?  How is social media affecting YOUR relationship?
