Perspective

Well, there is something that has been bothering me from facebook. I have the urge to say something, mainly because I cannot keep my mouth shut, but I feel spilling my feelings here is better than personally calling someone out.

There is a couple that I am friends with who have been dating for a relatively short period of time and have since became engaged. These two constantly (I mean like 17 times a day) post about how much they love each other and miss each other. This type of behavior always bothers me. Don't get me wrong, I will give Chris a shout out every once in a while, but I don't send him messages on facebook that should be meant as text messages or phone calls personally between a couple. I have a hard time understanding why you feel the need to do this anyway. This makes you look immature and that you are trying to show off being in love. That isn't what love is about. Trust me, I am all for love. I love being in love, but I do not have to announce it every 5 minutes so that other people know I am in love. It makes me wonder if you are trying to convince me that you are in love, or are trying to convince yourself.

Secondly, it drives me insane for people to complain about being apart for just a couple of days. Sure when you are in a relationship, you want to spend time together. Trust me, I know this for a fact. Chris and I have been doing a long distance relationship for 6 years. I know how much it sucks to be apart. But there are days that I feel terrible for thinking about how much I miss Chris. There are so many situations that we could be in that would be worse. I feel terrible for the military families with one party overseas and you go months and years without seeing each other. I cannot even imagine what that is like. The longest Chris and I have been apart has been 5 weeks. So, to the person who was away from your significant other for 2 days, maybe you should think before you post about how you miss someone so much that it physically hurts.

Come on people. Grow up. If you aren't mature enough to handle the relationship, maybe you shouldn't be dating, much less getting married. I am about to tell you off and de-friend you.
