Dating Don’ts: Should You Unfriend Your Ex?

Dating Don’ts: Should You Unfriend Your Ex?

There’s a perverse pleasure in keeping tabs on your ex-paramours on social media. Perhaps you monitor their Twitter feed before you to go bed to see if you can gauge whether there was a more salacious reason behind their sudden decision to end things. Maybe after a couple glasses of wine and watching half of “The Notebook,” you find yourself scrolling through Instagram, making assessments about whether or not the person that showed up in their feed is a friend, a good coworker, or a cousin you never knew about. Maybe seeing the articles that they share from Upworthy and the Onion in your Facebook feed is a way of keeping them in your life, if even for a little while.

Whatever your reasons are, the need to keep up with people that you’re no longer involved with is very real, a secret shame that we don’t often feel comfortable talking about with others. It’s okay to maintain this behavior up until a certain point, but in every broken relationship’s wake, there comes a point when it’s time to unfriend, unfollow, block, and mute, to completely and totally DISCONNECT. Ripping off the Band-Aid sucks, but it’s necessary when you’re trapped in an unhealthy cycle of speculation three months or three years after you guys have ended things. But when is the appropriate time? Here are some potential situations you might find yourself in, and some gentle guidance on when and how to disconnect. Keep reading »

Study: If You Post A Sexy Profile Picture, Your Peers Will Get Judgey

According to a new study from Oregon State University, young women who post sexy pictures on social media are seen by other women as less attractive and less competent. In the study, which is ominously titled “The Price Of Sexy,” 118 ladies between the ages of 13 and 25 were shown two Facebook profiles for a fictitious 20-year-old woman named Amanda Johnson. In one profile, she was pictured wearing a modest short-sleeved shirt and jeans, with a scarf draped over her chest. In the second profile, she wore a red low-cut dress, with a slit up one leg and a garter belt. Aside from the profile pictures, the pages were identical and included typical interests for someone her age, like Lady Gaga and “The Notebook.” Keep reading »

Another Day, Another Server Fired For Complaining On Social Media

Kirsten Kelly, a Texas Roadhouse waitress from Ohio, has been fired for complaining about bad tippers on Facebook. Kelly told Toledo News Now that the post read, “If you come into a restaurant and spend $50 or more, you should be able to tip appropriately for that.” She claimed she did not name Texas Roadhouse in her status, nor did she call out any specific customers, but a high school classmate of Kelly’s was apparently one of the customers she was talking about. That classmate, who’s friends with her on Facebook, saw the status, printed out a screenshot, and personally delivered it to the restaurant in an attempt to get her fired. Keep reading »

Dating Don’ts: On Not Losing Yourself In Your Relationship

Dating Don’ts: On Not Losing Yourself In Your Relationship

The other day, my friend and I got into a discussion about whether or not it was appropriate to use a picture of her and her boyfriend as the lock screen on her phone.

“It’s a cute picture, but I feel weird,” she told me. “I don’t know if I should keep it up.”

“Do whatever you want,” I said. “I personally have never done that, but hey, what do I know?”

She thought about it for a while, and then chatted me an hour later. “I took it down. It felt creepy.” Keep reading »

Frisky Rant: Please Stop Bragging About Your Husband On Facebook

Frisky Rant: Please Stop Bragging About Your Husband On Facebook

When women brag on Facebook about having the “best hubby in the world,” I want to buy advance tickets and popcorn to their inevitable divorce. If you really and truly love your husband and you’re actually that happy, why do you need to show off? Is Facebook your own personal delusion billboard?

Like when did husbanding (as opposed to husbandry, something else entirely) become a competition in which your husband is suddenly The Greatest Of All Husbands simply because he exchanged paper money for shiny baubles or, I don’t know, fixed the shower head? And why do you need to send out a massive brag to your “friends”? If it’s such a big deal, can’t you just tell them over the phone or in person? Keep reading »
