I have lost count on the number of breakup stories I’ve heard involving Facebook, Twitter, even LinkedIn! I don’t know how long it will take before people realize that social networking and romantic relationships can become problematic.
More people are finding each other on social networking and that is a great thing. However, when it comes to maintaining a relationship…well, social networking can pretty much become a major source of a relationship drama.
When you are dating someone, do you add them to your friend’s list on your social networking sites?
Do you think it’s a good idea to find the online profiles of people you are interested in dating?
My friend Greg thinks that it’s the same thing as taking your man or woman to a bar/club. You think it’s a good idea until someone says or does something that crosses the line. Then you are wondering why you even bothered “taking sand to the beach” in the first place.
We agreed that the way you handle the situation says a lot about your relationship. What do you think? If you are having arguments about something related to your online activity or social networking, is it a sign of something deeper?
If your date or mate is using social networking in a way that makes you uncomfortable, how do you handle it?
