New relationship? Avoid Facebook

So you are excited about your new guy/girl. Things are going so well, you just can’t believe it. You are both on the same page – Great! Just don’t get on the same Facebook page. No good can come from it.

Sometimes new relationships are fragile. The slightest bump can cause a crack and it all becomes a mess in a matter of hours. I just watched a new relationship plummet to the breakup abyss because a certain guy had not let it be known he was off the market.

What looked to be an innocent comment left on his Facebook wall by an ex-fling/girl of the week/booty call contact, became the source of a huge fight. Could this have happened if not for Facebook? It’s possible. I just believe that until you are in a solid, trusting relationship, Facebook contact with your new guy/girl should be avoided.

Do you think that social media is to blame for a lot of break ups and dating drama? So many things can be misconstrued and misinterpreted, but we insist on finding ways to put it all out there.

What is the best way to handle a misunderstanding that happens on Twitter, Facebook, etc.? Would you ever confront the person you are dating about something they said or had said to them?

Is this another dating challenge we have to contend with or is it really about how you handle it?

We’ve only been unofficially engaged for forever. But now…I’ve got hardware and a proposal story. (lol)

And the short version of the proposal is that he proposed at my birthday dinner (that I didn’t want to have and practically refused to invite anyone to and that he had to talk me into having) with *some* of our friends and family. We were at South City Kitchen. Everyone knew but me. I had no clue.

It sounds like something dudes would say not females. Much like the man saying “I’m married, but we are in a loveless marriage.” NEXT……

Hey everyone. I know we can’t possibly be on topic, but I’ll just say that FB isn’t the reason for your relationship woes, you are. FB may have just happened to be the outlet this time. I have an FB page, and I’ve NEVER had any problems of any kind. People with questionable behavior will express that, no matter the outlet. Same for upstanding people.

Leggs – no, but what he bought is really similar to most of what I looked at. What he did do was let me think that I had lost one of my favorite rings for the last two months while he used it to get it sized. (He gave it back to me Saturday night when we got back to the car.)
