Facebook Use

When it comes to dating, we want to know what we are getting into before we make that commitment. A way to do that before we agree to setup a date — Facebook. What a person has on their timeline says a lot about them.

If they don’t post a lot, they have a job or don’t care much about social media. If they frequently post, it can tell you a lot about their activities or opinions. If they have a lot of pictures of them hanging out at the bar, you probably want to run. If they are conservative and you’re not, you probably want to run. You shouldn’t read into what goes on their timeline but you should read red flags.

If they have a lot of friends, they either know a lot of people in real life or added a lot of people on Facebook. Don’t mistake their status’, likes, or friendships for them actually having a life. In reality, they could be spending their Friday night on Facebook. If they have a few friends or their friend list isn’t showing, you have to get to know them to know about their relationships. They are private and do not have shallow relationships. It’s obvious on the surface they are not self-promoters.

If they take a lot of selfies, they have way too much time on their hands. Think about it… How much time does it take to a picture, edit it, and select the proper one? A couple of hours. Now if you’re doing that multiple times a week, you have nothing better to do. Would you want to date someone that isn’t productive and probably conceited, shallow, and lonely? Probably not. You know they’re going to be more self-concerned.

If they like or comment on a bunch of things, they are impulsive and bored. It’s not a bad thing unless they have an addiction to social media. When they start doing questionable things, you should probably talk to them. By talk to them, I mean really talk to them. Don’t message them on Facebook or send a text message. The only thing you should talk to them about is what is on their mind. Don’t bring up what they do on Facebook unless you have a reason like you saw a photo of them tagged with another girl/guy.

One thought on “Facebook Use

  1. I no longer do Facebook. But then again, dating’s not a priority now. I’m still quite shocked by how judgmental people can be with their questions and comments when I do go out on dates. A lot of it concerns what I study and my job. “How much money do you make?” has become the “What did you get on the math test?” At least for me. And those I’ve gone on dates with.
