Social Networking Mischief

With so many ways to communicate, you would think our social lives would be easier. The countless number of social networking sites were most likely designed to bring people together; to find old friends, make new ones or perhaps even find a new love. Yet what is the effect that these sites are doing to those already in relationships? I recently read an article in which lawyers are stating that Facebook is being cited in almost 1 in 5 online divorce petitions.

“The most common reason seemed to be people having inappropriate sexual chats with people they were not supposed to.”

Even little things like someone leaving a flirtatious comment on your “wall” could put your relationship on the road to hell, if not handled appropriately.  What would you consider emotional cheating?

So how do relationships withstand the numerous obstacles of today’s online society?

First off, be honest with yourself and your partner. Often I see relationships where too much time is spent in the online world and not enough time in the real world. Is there “something” that you are getting from the online world that you are lacking in your real world? What can be done to fix this?

Second, think before you post anything! Ask yourself “How might my partner feel about this?”

“Honey, do you think this picture is too sexy or inappropriate to put on…”

HELLO?? If you have to ask, chances are the answer is “Yes!” Instead, look in the mirror, look at your relationship. If you are in a relationship and feel the need to post sexy pictures of yourself on social networking sites it is most likely because you are feeling insecure with yourself and may like the ego boost of a stranger’s attention because you are not getting enough attention from your partner. If this is the case, talk about it.

So why am I writing about people in relationships when most of my readers are single?

My answer is; learn from their mistakes. When you start dating (even after being single for awhile) sometimes you forget the simple things.

So, if there is this girl you are interested in and she is even considering you, she WILL check out your Facebook and this WILL be a part of her decision making process as to whether she will go out with you or not! And, yes ladies, this applies to you as well…

    Sure emotional relationships are still cheating, and can be very painful to the other person when they find out!
    If you are single for a while and fnd someone, lay-low!
    Put the computer screen scene away for a bit, and focus on your “real-life” relationship!
    It’s so much better than typing away, anyway!
