Re: Is social media making romance less significant than it used to be?

People should not be so accurate on the internet. I recommend exxagerating your age, changing your name, using Brad Pitt's photo if you are a guy and CD's if you are a gal. And please folks, if you are a man eating, shapeshifting reppie, please mention that and provide a picture.

A shapeshifter cannot put a picture of shapeshifting, it will need a video

Re: Is social media making romance less significant than it used to be?

A before and after would be nice.


But about the rest of the article, is that the worst part of bringing home your new gal to meet the folks?

Re: Is social media making romance less significant than it used to be?

That I cannot say. My family is not a social media freak and we do not have photos on facebook. I have a few though, my significant other does not have any. No one knows how colorful I am by surfing over my profile, the majority of which is not available to the rest of my family.

The next person will appreciate

Re: Is social media making romance less significant than it used to be?

That I do, but the profile page does not tell anything much about me, plus, for a normal human it would take a lot of time to find out the full information. ( that is why I wanted to create a text file from the zetafunc. thread )

Which person is being talked about in #6?

The person is the one you are referring to when you said no one.

Re: Is social media making romance less significant than it used to be?

It reffers to the absence of a person rather than some person.

Let us say it is a generic person. He/she could gather a lot of information about you from your posts here.

Re: Is social media making romance less significant than it used to be?

Unless he/she is one of the agencies that you describe, harnessing correct information from me from here is time-consuming

Why will someone want to spend so much time on me?

Probably no reason just pointing out that it could be done.

Re: Is social media making romance less significant than it used to be?

I am afraid they are very limited. They also do not suit everyone's personality. But we are straying from the OP.

Re: Is social media making romance less significant than it used to be?

Anyway, is social media affecting my romance?

Re: Is social media making romance less significant than it used to be?

What romance are you talking about? In general or one person?

Re: Is social media making romance less significant than it used to be?

I do not know because I do not what in general or one person romance is

The next will elaborate

Re: Is social media making romance less significant than it used to be?

My view of romance is pretty skewed. To me it is the endless pursuit of some girl for who knows what reason.

Re: Is social media making romance less significant than it used to be?

What reason?

Is my romance in general or in specific being affected by scial media?

Re: Is social media making romance less significant than it used to be?

I never did figure out the reason or the purpose of any social interaction. Of course there is the obvious attraction but after that it is only pain. But, I keep doing it anyway.


I do not think that Twitter or Facebook is affecting people's lives as much as they advertise.
