Tweet-deceit…is Merger Mania Over?


Can modern marriage survive modern technology?  More specifically: Can couples remain afloat in a swirling sea of social networking sites?

It’s all a gal can do to blog and tweet during a lunch break pedicure – while composing texts that would make Danielle Steel blush.

Lately a handful of exes and colleagues tracked me down to giddily remind me of their Facebook presence. Here they go again, casting their fishing rods! It’s as if somehow these social platforms have awarded them a clean slate, granting them a license to, dare I say, stray.

Has our finetuning of online social networking skills awoken others parts of us that, well, were asleep? If so, could that explain the increased divorce rate?

Apparently, yes. The Guardian recently reported that “cyber affairs” are being cited with greater frequency in disruptions of real marriages. Social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are, according to divorce lawyers, the online enablers.

There’s no question that being part of a supportive, dynamic duo is the preferred modus operandi. But how do you manage ‘it’ while now having to manage all of ‘them’ (the ‘them’ being all of your new social network pals). Perhaps we need to insert a new matrimonial questions like: “Do you promised to unfriend all exes on Facebook, never to visit their page?” Don’t expect any marital wisdom from this single girl. I just discovered my less-than-significant other not only created a blog,  but belongs to multiple social networks.  I miss the opaque era.

BO seems to have a talent for dissing people …looks like he’s pissing off the germans and now the French …and then there was his speech to the Muslim world where he pretty much trashed women in the west for being independent, or at least that how some of it came off to me.

will have to look into the speeches…thx bm

yup. facebook most definitely fosters infidelity…and now workers must also beware, because employers are now monitoring employees’ interaction with social media sites.

pretty we’ll have a facebook anonymous!

I agree maya. There have been more than a few reports of employees getting bagged with public displays of over sharing on their myspace or fb pages. Overexposure is not just reserved for celebs any more…
It’s not just employers, it’s perspective ones too— so if any of you heels are looking for work— I’d check those privacy settings on your profiles!!!

welcome back princess…..nothing impt. going on politically except that obama is out of the country, so enjoy!! God, the air seems fresher, food tastes better and there’s a snap in my step when he’s out of the country.
as for your post….it’s a very good one, as usual.
I’ve being married to the same man for almost 40 yrs.
back in our 30’s and 40’s we both cheated alot. Looking back on those times, i would say the reason was pure selfishness. and being totally self-absorbed, which ususally happens at that time in life for alot of people………and having a mantra that is “me, me, me” . that’s basically what drives people to have affairs. so, even though i think you posit a theory that is a good one, people who want to cheat will find a way to do so whether they have a cell phone, the internet, tweets, twats, or nothing at all. ( hell there weren’t even pushbutton phones when i started fooling around)
at least for me and my wonderful hubby………..we have finally grown-up in our 60’s and life it great!

I do not post much, but this was a good read. Craigslist always has something new in stock. Some site I read had a post about a guy who was going to buy a car for his gf, and he found a car ad with stuff about Hitler in it… Very odd. That is Craigslist…

boogie——– that’s a phrase from seinfeld, when george tells jerry that his (george’s) parents are moving to florida. jerry then tells george that life will be so much better when they are gone, that he won’t believe it……….and then that quote. it’s one of my favorite senfeld scenes and i realized that’s exactly how i feel about obama being gone!
