Social media's are really ruining relationships

Updated on November 7, 2013

Keeping it together

Social media's such as facebook and twitter are really making relationships harder to keep together. We all need 5,000 friends on facebook NOT!. You don't care about your family anymore because you need to know what 5,000 people are doing on a daily basis.

When your little chat window pops up, with someone you don't have a clue as to who they are, you start conversing to that person and within and hour the two of you know each others whole life.

You can't wait til tomorrow, hoping they will be on again. Then one nights chat turns into a month, and then your talking badly about your signifcant other and make plans to flea with someone you don't know.

People it's time to wake up! Do you really need 5,000 friends to make your life happy? Do you need to chat with people you don't know about your present relationship or any of your personal business for that matter, when the one you should be talking to is you partner.

I have seen a few friends lose their spouses or significant other due to facebook and I just can't fathom that anyone who would want to break up your marriage on the internet, would mean you any good.

In some ways these social medias have helped bring life long friends together, family members who can't be together all the time, and military who are gone for months have contact with their families.

At one time I have 2,000 friend trying to promote my books, but then I realized I don't even know these people and had people actually ask me for money. Seriously it made me angry and I deleted every single person that I didnt know, which left me with about 365 friends. Now to know that many people is a good thing.

Don't do it, no matter how tempting it is, accept peoples friendship that you don't know. First of all you do not know what kind of people you are dealing with. Secondly is facebook that important that you can't see what it's doing to your family. Thirdly, if you make a choice to take it to another level with someone you never met, then don't cry when it doesn't work.

The grass is not greener on the other side people. Just sayin. You already know what you have at home. Facebook is not a dating website. It's to reconnect with those you love and miss.

      So true. I often wonder how many people who text via cell phone or are on Facebook lose their marriages because they started a relationship with someone else this way.

      Way too easy for some people to give in to temptation and flirt, and ruin the trust they were supposed to have with their spouse.
