Being a crime based site, I normally don’t post relationship stuff, but every now and then a story will intrigue me enough and I feel compelled to share.
Today’s social media phenomena has created
and facilitated an abundant need for people to feel loved, I call it computer love. The need for computer love is so great that a large portion of society, both old and young, now feel that if their real life relationship is not validated by “In a Relationship” or “Married To” social media status, then it is not valid at all. Some will even settle for a “It’s Complicated.”
The need to feel
computer loved is real, but is it ruining people’s lives? Apparently so!
I have been dating this guy for almost a year and everything is great between us.
It’s a long distance relationship, but it’s a 3 hour drive and we try to see each other every month or so. He has a very small circle of friends that he actually hangs with on a daily basis and I’ve met them. I haven’t met his mom because she is heavily religious and unless he proposes that’s when she would want to meet me. But, she does know of me. I also met his grandfather.
However, the problem I’m having is that his friends have no knowledge of our relationship on social media, which bothers me because I have trust issues from past relationships. And, he knows this, but according to him the 4,000 plus friends that he has on there doesn’t matter. He says that the people that matter in his life know of me. So, I don’t know if I should be concerned or just leave it alone because I don’t see why a guy wouldn’t want to put that out there if he has a girlfriend if he’s that happy.
