Nairobi - How social media is killing or will probably end your relationship.
You know those people who go on a date and
they have to give a back to back feedback of everything and everything; the
food, the place, then snap chat the whole thing while eating-they just cannot
be in the moment. You are not even on a date unless you count the fact that you
are dating your phone and social media pages. You are excused if you get paid
to actually do that and your date knew. On the other hand ignoring your whole
date because you are on your phone is really quite rude.
Oh, and finally the ones who have to let
the whole world know what is going on in the relationship, who did what and why
it has annoyed you. It might end up making your partner uncomfortable when the
whole world knows about something that should be personal.
can never take your eyes off your phone
Those ones you go out with or take them out
and they spend the whole time going through their feed. Their conversational
abilities are punctuated with, ‘Sorry, what did you say?’ They sped basically
all their time with you on their phone it becomes an annoying habit. No one
wants to compete with a phone. It is like it is more entertaining than the
person you are with.
Those secret messages you receive from
people you do not know. So you get excited because they look so good and you
get enticed by the idea of dating them rather than the real life person you
have. Being an idiot you decide maybe just maybe and you go and meet them. But
they do not look like their profile and you have just ruined a perfectly good
relationship for an illusion.
