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

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?

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

You of course have a interesting profile over here.

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.

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.

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?

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

Anyway, is social media affecting my romance?

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

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

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

What reason?

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

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.
