Social networking and relationships don’t mix

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?

Raqi — So, apart from the smoothies, it sounds like this won’t be much different from your normal routine… how does that qualify as a “detox” again? Just askin’… ;-)

I think a more apt detox for you would be 48 consecutive hours of Skinamax, Ho-ho’s and Nehi Grape soda… :lol:

Mase: I hope you not expecting me to join you?

Raqi: It would be nice but no.

Boy: Me neither daddy!

Raqi: Hush up boy!! You will eat whatever I give you!

Boy: Dad?

Mase: Go play boy. (mouthing behind Raqi’s back) I got you…

Raqi:Yeah go play before I….

Mase: SO, what does this detox involve?

Raqi: Don’t be trying to change the subject. That boy…

Mase: So, you don’t want me to listen?

Raqi: That’s not what I said… Well it involves me eating organic foods, drink distilled water, drinking this smoothie, reading the bible and no sexy for two days.

Mase: Huh… (get up and pulls out his laptop)

Raqi: Huh? that’s it? That’s all you have to say? What are you doing?

Mase: Facebooking.

PurpleR, I call the post-coitus cuddle the fake cuddle because there is approximately a 7.23 seconds window of time from ejack to the roll off to a state of deadman hibernation setting in. LOL Instead of a real cuddle it’s more like on his way to his back narcolepsy set in.

I told one of my friends this once and she said well at least he doesn’t roll away, to the other side the bed and turn his back to go to sleep like I’m just the flavor of the night jump-off every single time. LOL

Hey you…in Dallas for work this week. I forgot my toothpaste and started to rough it by just brushing. But then, I felt like I was on an episode of Survivor. So, I went down to the desk and asked for some toothpaste.
GiGi is still alive and she has returned to solid poops. She will start training classes next week. All is well in her world.

Raqi, a little game I play with myself is to try and have “calm” orgasm without all of the moaning, groaning and convulsing. Sometimes I can do it most times I can’t. It’s funny how women can hold onto it all calm then just BURST out for a fer seconds then back to being calm, but yet sensitive

PR – You REALLY seem like you have waaaaay too much idle time. Do you work? Not trying to be funny but just asking. You’re here most days all day so I was wondering if you get the farming out of the way like early morning hours and kick back the rest of the day.

PurpleR, actually for woman, or rather this woman, the O’s are not all the same. Some are more quick and calm and some are more earth shattering. Some are right to the point and some tend to linger for a while. In various forms yet all satisfying.

And some are just headache inducing. I hate those. I don’t think those are supposed to happen like that. LOL It’s like those empty orgs that you all have at least once in your lifetime. The bang without the buck. LOL

Celisea, I work every morning from about 430am my time to 930am, come in and shower, relac play on the computer hang out with the wife and son then in bed by 8pm and up at 330am. We are an hour behind, when I am missing for a few days I am usually turning crop which takes me all day and is very intense. That’s why I usually pop up close to 10 daily. But just sitting here watching them sleep is boring, I am the errand guy.
