Are you a social media princess? That's wonderful; but there's a time and a place for that. Does your love life need to be tweeted, Facebooked, and Instagrammed? Nope -- especially in the very beginning. Here are three reasons why.
#1: Word Gets Around -- Fast
Didn't your mother ever tell you not to share anything you don't want the world to know? She was probably talking about silly gossip; but these days, this is literally true. Your words and pictures can span countries within seconds; and once you put it out there, it's there for good. No amount of deleting or Command+Z will undo it completely. Choose your words wisely, and remember that sometimes, silence is golden.
#2: Think of the Other Person Involved
Would the person you're dating appreciate your sharing the private details of your night with your 3,400 closest friends on Facebook? It's even worse if you two are not friends online. Then, you're not even giving him the option to object, because he doesn't even know you're dishing the details!
#3: Would You Discuss This in Person?
When you're sitting behind your computer or phone, it's easy to say just about anything. Imagine this: If you tweet about your date, and then you run into one of your followers at the grocery store, will you be comfortable delving into those details face to face? If not, you probably shouldn't have said it online!
