It's kind of hard to remember our lives without Facebook...it's how we connect, keep in touch, and—let's face it—waste an enormous amount of time. So it's only natural that something that we spend so much time on bleeds over from life life to dating life. So DOES Facebook affect the way we date?
If one of your friends was angry with you would you rather they go tell everyone about it or would you rather them come straight to you? The answer is pretty simple, right? Practically anyone would rather that their friends talk to them directly than talk about it with anyone else. Why then I wonder does the answer to that question seem more complicated when talking about Facebook or Twitter?
Awhile back, when you met someone you liked, you’d ask for their number and call them later on. You’d actually have to speak to them. Chilling right? Today when we read “<3 luv u” from the person we like, our knees buckle, and we’re lost for words. Back in the day, our hearts would melt if someone received a love note, talked for long hours over the phone, or if he simply came up to talk to you in the hallway. Nowadays, Facebook and text messaging are considered our love notes and long conversations. All of a sudden, we’re checking our cell phones every other minute for texts or logging on Facebook to look for wall messages. No one said dating was easy, but dating with technology is complicated.
