Breaking up? May Be Tough…

The article below is my topic for tonight.

Breaking up is hard to do

It seems strange to us “oldsters” who have broken up with people over the years and been able to be quiet about it for, sometimes, long periods.  I mean, in high school you couldn’t unless you went to a really huge school because people knew everything.  Even the teachers knew most of the boy/girl hookups.  College was better, even in the small college I went to (back then) you had a lot of people who knew who you were with and all, but it wasn’t headline news if you broke up.

Today is different for most people, even us olden ones.  Facebook, in my opinion, makes an absolute mess of relationships.  People discuss it; girls talk about how lucky someone is or how could she, while boys, well, boys will be boys.  It just gets blown out of proportion when there is an argument if either person lets go on the net or if a friend does.  How does this sound?

Girl1:  how are you and Guy1 getting along?

Girl2:  I don’t want to talk about it on the Net.

Girl1:  That bad, huh?  Don’t worry, girl, he’s not worth it.

Now, that might not be so bad except that Girl3 is a friend and can see this communication just by watching.  If she tells something to Girl4  who, in turn, tells Girl5 and Guy 2, there could be trouble.   Ever play telephone?

Now, Girl 1 and Guy 1 get back together, but then Guy1 is told by Guy3:

Guy3:  Man, I heard about you and Girl1.  That was such a mean thing she said about you.

Guy1:  What?  What did she say?

Guy3:  Well, she said… (and proceeds to tell him what Girl5 told him without telling him who told him)

And now, the breakup is back on.

The worst is that this could all happen on the Net, on Facebook, without anyone coming face-to-face.  You could lose your sweetheart, win him/her back and lose again without even seeing the person.  Don’t kid yourselves, it happens.

People, I think, get too caught up in the “Reality” of Facebook and the Net.  Face it, it is much easier to say something to someone if you are typing or texting it and not standing right there beside him/her.

We are making relationships almost as disposable as water bottles anymore.

What do you think?  Facebook good / bad when it comes to relationships?

Do you have a horror story about it?

And, we haven’t even gotten into Online Dating!!!  Another time…

Namaste,

Scott
