Facebook is around us worldwide. Facebook has become so much of a staple that we practically rely on it. We have become so consumed with facebook that it becomes part of our daily routine. We spend hours and hours scrolling up and down a person’s prifle that we either know, want to know, or have known. If we have known the person we want to see what they have been up to, especially if we used to go out with them.
We can’t help but be interested in what an ex is up to and how they are doing. We want to know if they are seeing someone new, or more importantly, if they are not. We can’t help but indulge our obsessive compulsiveness when it comes to seeing someone we used to be attached to. And it even gives us an even greater thrill when we see that they have not moved on or awre not doing well. There is something sick about this thrill, but it’s true. It gives us some sort of validation.
But what happens when the relationship status says that they are involved? that one person that go away is know seeing someone new and happy. There is a part of us that wishes we didn’t know, right? So why does facebook off the relationship status aspect anyway?
Is it the person’s privacy that we are violating? or is it our own privacy that we are violating?
Seeing that someone is involved is direct indication that you should move on. But what if it is not true? What if the relationship status is more invovled than that. I mean everything gets complicated nowadays, even the relationships get complicated.
There is no such thing as single and attached anymore. if you are single you want to be attached. And if you are attached you really want to be single. Plus you can use this single option as a way to troll for available people and still remain true to that ring.
We spend hours discouraging ourselves over the relationship status of a person. We spend hours contemplating the coulda, woulda,shouldas over a person that may or may not be available.
People use this option as a way to play mind games with people and we buy into it. We spend our whole lives on a virtual reality, in turn making relationships into the same thing. Since when did relationships become a virtual reality? They are supposed to be a true reality.
