Women, If You Don’t Knock It Off!

Dating & Relationships / Single Mommy Stuff / August 9, 2012

Women, what’s up with these “subliminal” messages that you are trying to send men of Facebook and Twitter?  What were you doing before social media, sending smoke signals?  I swear if I come across another Facebook message like, “Your with her but you still love me.”  Really?  Do you think that man is really tripping off of you?  He is not on-line sending you subliminal messages.  Trust me, he is NOT tripping off of you!
We have all been there before.  When the man who you care about pisses you off and you just want to vent and instead of  calling a friend, we get on Facebook and Twitter, vent and go on and on about this “idiot”, without saying the “idiot’s” name and after we have got it all out, the “idiot” is still going on with his life because he either:  is not tripping off of you, isn’t your friend on Facebook or Twitter or AGAIN, is not tripping off of you.
Ladies, guys don’t care about nor do they trip on stuff like that.  9 times out of 10, they really don’t give a damn about what you put out there, especially when you didn’t say their names. When was the last time you read a post like that and the guy responded to it?  Take a moment and think about it.  NEVER, right?
So ladies, before you take to Facebook and Twitter ranting and raving about what the “idiot” did or did not do, think to yourself, “Will I feel better after this” or “will I look like a fool for dealing with an idiot like this in the first place?” Hopefully after taking a minute to think about it, we won’t write that post or tweet after all.

    Agreed!!

I think that Tweeting is a poor method of communication and it's destroying the beautiful language that has been a work in progress for hundreds of years. Language shouldn't be reduced to a few symbols of meaningless drivel. If you have something to say to someone, pick up the phone or better still, go speak to them in person. I know–I'm a hopeless old fart!

    Stephen, you are so right! People in my generation don't know or remember the basic things like having a conversation face to face or via telephone, everything is through social media and it's just sad that we don't know how to communicate with one another anymore.

I just love this post because as a female I have been there..The problem is..stop selecting the same wrong man..take sometime and evaluate your pass selections..and make some adjustments. take a moment to know yourself and what type of man you want..and be by yourself for a while..thinking and waiting is the remedy to correct past mistakes and not make the same mistakes over and over….

    Good point but how do you know upon meeting someone if they are a chronic texter or not?

on August 10, 2012

I agree with Stephen. People who have poor communication skills just get on twitter. but tweeting can sometimes lead to misunderstanding. I'd say face-to-face communication is still the most effective.

thanks for those kind words u left in my blog, returning the love.

    Thanks for stopping by, Honeybee & you are welcome. Face to face is the best!!

I have to totally agree!! People that use social media as “the couch” for counselling need to make a REAL appointment to go and sit on someone's couch and talk about it!!

They are just attention seekers looking for co-signers and sympathy!! Just thirsty and desperate!!

What makes it worse is when two hours later, their status or post is along the lines of “I love me some him…” with the Toni Braxton video posted on their page via YouTube!! AAARGH!!! Are you serious?? A minute ago this dude was the worst!!

Bottom Line: Keep your issues (all of them) off social media!! Esp if you're a flip flopper!!

    on August 10, 2012

    LMAO! You are right, especially about the video and being all in love after the post they put up. Girl, facebook is indeed free counseling for folks!

    Tell them again! I couldn’t have said it any better than you just did, you took the words right out of my mouth. I just can’t help but roll my eyes every time I see those kinds of posts on Facebook. One minute you swear he’s cheating and now your status says “it’s complicated” or “single” and the next minute….I love him he is my world blah blah “in a relationship.” Woman please! Stop being such a drama queen. I think the responses on those posts are funnier than the posts themselves. Always the same backup chicks telling her to find someone that loves her for her, and then they’re all awww glad to see things worked out. WTF? How did he change from being a jerk to being a prince in the past 10 minutes?

      on October 27, 2012

      LMAO!! AMEN!!!
