Is Your Lover Just Another Person in Your Social Network?

    It seems like young people do not have time to get to know their lovers. But also people as old as 45, maybe even 50, appear to be texting dozens of people all day long. No time to call and chat. It makes one wonder if lovers are just a part of one's social network.

      Im not sure if there is a question in your post, but if you are talking about sexting, I would imagine there is little need to get to know your "lover." It would be the modern day equivalent of a one night stand etc. However, if someone wanted to be in a relationship with another person, one would make more of an effort to spend time with them, although phones and computers are definitely the way ppl are still going to communicate. Maybe FB has replaced the bar scene.

        I hadn't thought about the sexting part of it.
        II do see couples who sit across from each other in restaurants who don't even talk. They're preoccupied with keeping up with their smartphone stuff. And I've seen people who send short texts to cancel a date. And I've heard about people breaking up by posting it on facebook.
        I'm just wondering how far this has taken over the culture.
