Maybe someone can help me understand. Maybe one of you can put a different spin on this goofy, nauseating practice and help me see things differently. Maybe you can convince me to think otherwise. Give it your best shot.
What I’m referring to is the practice of couples sharing sweet, tender, private, mushy, gushy, mwah mwah, smooches, kissie kissie moments over Facebook.
Don’t they see to each other in person to say “Happy birthday darling, I love you so, so much. You complete me. You’re every breath I take. Heart Heart Heart” in private?
If they don’t see to each other, like most lovers would, don’t they call each other to say, “Oh my sexy beast, thank you for that amaaaaaaaaaaaazing breakfast!!”in private?
If they don’t see or speak to each other, do they not have text or email to say, “Have a safe trip my handsome hunk. I will miss you.” in private?
One thing is certain
If they’re posting their post-coital, smitten love notes for the whole world to see on Facebook, we know that they have the option to send a PM – a PRIVATE message to each other. How about that? That might be a good option, perhaps. Agreed?
I welcome opinions on why some engage in this; but hold the nasty grams. I’m not bitter. I’m not a lonely old maid. I’m not jealous. I don’t have a problem celebrating others’ happiness. I keep my private life where it should be… in private.
I don’t get it
I really don’t understand why people do this? Is it to make themselves look like the husband-, wife-, BF-, GF-, lover-of-the-year by showing the world how you are acknowledging a private moment publicly? Or is there another option I’m not considering?
Be happy all you want
Ravage each other. Be consumed with each other. But please don’t force-feed your sweet, tender, private, mushy, gushy, mwah mwah, smooches, kissie kissie moments all over Facebook. It’s really like PDA on steroids for the cyberworld.
Hey here’s an idea, instead of sharing a private moment publicly because you are so in love and you want to shout it to the world, why don’t you post : “I have the best partner in the world!” Or “It’s my hunka hunka burning love’s birthday and we are going to party like it’s 1999!” Or something that’s more of a statement or update instead of a love note TO your significant other.
That concludes today’s public service announcement. If you were previously one who was making your readers throw up in their mouth because you were engaging in the above, hopefully now you’ve seen the light and going forward you’ll communicate such sugar directly to each other, and not on a billboard.
BTW, in case there was any doubt – my opinions are my own and are in no way attempting to speak for the Sparkplugging community as a whole!
