Baylor Girl, I can appreciate the fact that you have a boyfriend. I can appreciate the fact that you’re in love. I can even deal with multiple uses of the term “blessed” when referring to said boyfriend.
However, I do not appreciate the fact that you have given up your identity to be with that boyfriend. I do not appreciate that all conversations lead to information about that boyfriend or what he thinks, because you know what? I don’t really want to know.
And here’s the final thing. I realize that facebook is borderline juvenile (ok, maybe a little past borderline … do you remember that 80’s song that talked about the borderline? But I digress), but that doesn’t mean that you should lower yourself to that juvenile state to tell me how “blessed” you are to have such an “awesome” boyfriend, etc. Cause guess what? Most of those people end up breaking up. It’s the truth. You could do a study on it.
I’m not saying this applies to everyone. In fact, I know a couple of girls that want the world to know they’ve finally found true love (and these girls aren’t 19 … they’ve actually experienced life), and a good way to let people know is via the internet – namely facebook.
So ladies, get a grip. It may sound like I’m bitter, but I say if you’re having to use facebook (or any other internet resource) to convince yourself and other people that you’re in love … don’t expect it to last.
I’m just sayin’.
