    I had a hard breakup with a guy I dated for 2 years…our biggest thing was fighting through FB and feeling this emotional weight on my shoulders. Guess looking back at it, it was for nothing really-I haven’t talked to him in a couple months…

    It’s sad when i see two of my friends who are a couple fight online. It’s just so immature.

    I dunno, FB is become a pretty real thing in terms of relationships. I’ve heard people say before, It’s not official until its FB official.

    Once I was with this really sweet girl, btu she really was a girl. She needed me to tuck her in at night before we went to sleep. Sometimes she needed me to turn a lite on in the hallway so it wouldn’t be totally dark, and we always slept with the door open. Anyway, she was sweet, but immature. One day she saw me talking with an attractive woman and got really jealous, so jealous that she threw a tantrum in the bedroom, threw lamps everywhere. I had to call the police to calm her down, even the neighbors cam over to see what was going on. She finally calmed down, but she was so suspicious after that that i had to end it.

    I’ve always been a mature person so I was able to cut off communication because she got out of hand but we’re still friends to this day.

    I broke up with my boyfriend of 3 years because I just got tired of him. i know that sounds awful, but when your with someone just out of habit, it gets boring. you talk about the same things all the time, you always do the same thing. my friends were getting impatient with me because it started seepign into the other parts of my life, and so finally I realized I had to break up with him or I’d just become this boring person always. i was surprised when I heard he felt the same way but didnt know how to bring it up.

    It can be really dangerous to be in a relationship based on habit. That happened to me too.

    There really is a big difference when you put your relationship online or not. It’s pretty common to see a couple is “official” when you jump on their online profile.

    Is silly though because the online world isn’t real!! So many of us expect to share every detail with one another and it gets really overwhelming!

    When I broke up with my ex he was really cool about not bringing up anything online so I’m glad things didn’t go sour. We didn’t delete each other and we rarely saw each other in town. Guess it was a case of “out of sight out of mind.”

    I wouldn’t say it’s “not real.” It’s a bit harder to judge what’s most natural and what’s down right silly so if anything, it’s important not to take stuff too seriously.

    How does that song go “breaking up is hard to do”. Usually when I’m going to break up with a guy, I drag it out for a few weeks. I just don’t have the nerve to do a clean break. I try to be subtle, drop a few hints, but it never seems to work. The last guy I broke up with I knew it would break his heart. I couldn’t do it face to face and did it over the phone.

    Oh it is real, people kill themselves, meet “other people” and more that start online. Besides that most companies now check FB pages before hiring. Posting anything online can affect your life, even your relationship status. If I changed mine to single, the explanation I would have to give the the wife would really need to be real…

    Sure, you can be fake on the net but it can always come back to your world.

    @broomhilda, you did the right thing. He wanted out too. Even if he didn’t, you did the right thing because it wasn’t going anywhere constructive.

    I think the online world isn’t real to the point where we all expect people to act the same way they would in person which is hardly ever the case.

    People are breaking up and clingin onto Facebook to watch their exes every move. It’s ridiculous
