Yes the title is a bit misleading, but not too far fetched.
Since I have had my iPhone I have wondered many a time if the introduction of the famed phone has brought about a decline in relationships. Real ones.
Today alone I have seen 4 Tweets and 5 Facebook posts about relationships. That shouldn’t have been said. Period.
Posts and Tweets like “the last two years have been the best, thanks to my wife” type of crap.
Now hear me out. I am not picking on Social Media directly nor the iPhone directly. It’s the pair that I am bothered with.
In my life, I can honestly say I would NEVER be on Twitter nor Facebook if not for my iPhone. Or any smartphone for that matter.
Nor would I say anything stupid like I read today. If you are excited that it’s your anniversary, say it to the person! Please, for all of our sake.
No one on Twitter nor Facebook cares about your personal life, minus the stalkers who have checked your profile 14 times today to see if you have posted new pictures of yourself or your kid.
Relationships have gone by the way side since the creation of the smartphone, and it saddens me. The connection between us all have diminished with the rise of the “I need it now” fad. Or as I see it, lots of folks clinically diagnosing themselves with A.D.D.
Now I know you will all argue with me that you have online relationships you wouldn’t of had before. Case in Point, all three writers on this site, BUT none of those relationships should take away from my local relationships.
Stay true to yourself and watch what you say online.
Relationships are what make us live long, not fly by the seat of your pants comments on website that wont be around in 10 years. (I pray!)
I am all ears! What say you?
