Social media runs our world, ladies. I can’t remember a time where I didn’t tweet about a date. Or take an Instagram photo of an Apple Martini. #NoFilter!
Personally, I was addicted. Just three years ago, I switched my solo Facebook profile picture to one of me and my then boyfriend. That was a first. And the last time since then. My recent ex-boyfriend isn’t into social media. He rarely posts on Facebook and only tweets sports scores and trash tweets with the fans of rival teams. So, I had to ween myself off, you see. He wasn’t going to stand for my tweeting pictures of him and me in comprising positions. Or even just as a couple.
No wonder we broke up. We were social media incompatible!
Still, I get the need for privacy now. That was a big lesson for me in my last relationship. We shouldn’t tweet everything. We shouldn’t share every single detail of our relationship. And if you do choose to go that route, share it all – the good, the bad, the worse. Don’t be inauthentic and only expose the great moments. You also shouldn’t tweet the following of your boyfirned.
Keep Him to Yourself on Social Media 1 of 8
Social media is ruining our love lives! Put your phone down and stop taking pics of the following things.
Sleeping 2 of 8
The bed should be for romance, not for taking photos of your love and tweeting! That's the warning Russell Brand missed. Remember when he tweeted a photo of Katy Perry sleeping? She looked a hot mess, as most of us do. So, do your honey and the Twitterverse a favor - do not tweet pics of your man snoozing! I don't need to see his drool. Photo Credit: Flickr Creative Commons.
Private Parts 3 of 8
Please don't tweet pics of his manhood. His private parts are for him to share! I just don't get the reasoning behind it. Is it to brag? Or a slip of the "tweet" button? Just keep his Johnson off your phone altogether. His missile should stay hidden for everyone's sake. Photo Credit: Flickr Creative Commons.
Food in Mouth 4 of 8
I don't like to pick up the dirty plates of others (it's a phobia, I think). So, imagine how disgusted I am when you tweet your sweetie eating or chewing or, lets say, reveal the contents of the food in his mouth. I'm looking at you Alicia Silverstone! Sure, he's a baby and you were like a mama bird, but no! Just ew. Photo Credit: Flickr Creative Commons.
Kissing 5 of 8
I have a cousin whose cover photo on Facebook is of her and her husband kissing. She also uses the same photos as her Instagram profile pic. And I'm talking full on make-out session. I mean, how does one even take that photo and look good? And why do I have to witness your french kiss? I close my eyes whenever I go to her Facebook profile. Photo Credit: Flickr Creative Commons.
Funky Feet 6 of 8
Feet! Ah! Does anyone find feet attractive? Besides those with a foot fetish, of course. I just don't, and men, well, their feet are a lot less pretty. Most men's feet are hairy and huge. And they sometimes have scraggily nails if they don't get pedicures. So please don't give me nightmares by tweeting photos of his funky feet. Keep your man's feet in his shoes!

Underwear 7 of 8
Unless your man's David Beckham or Anderson Davis ("The Zesty Guy"), I just don't need to see him in his tighty-whities. That includes boxers. And boxer briefs. Just don't tweet it unless he's hot by everyone's standard of hotness. Photo Credit: Flickr Creative Commons.
Love Notes 8 of 8
No, I am not being a bitter, single woman and meanie. Love notes are personal. Why share them on social media? Some may fight me on this, but I love the days when love was sacred and just for you and your partner. Let's keep it that way as long as we can. Photo Credit: Flickr Creative Commons.
