But displaying your affection for someone digitally can also go horribly wrong. Recently a girlfriend of mine had a serious wake-up call: after being involved in a 5 month relationship she woke up at 6:00 a.m. to a series of very public messages from her ex. That’s right, instead of being in her inbox they were displayed across her Facebook wall. The first booze induced message was a simple “hey sexy” but the next few evolved into messages like “where are you” and of course the most dramaTECH of all, “come back to me.” She quickly deleted the posts and prayed to the Facebook for Blackberry gods for getting her these messages before her boyfriend had a chance to see them and jump to ill conclusions.
Whew, right? Well let these public displays of affection be a warning to all of us: Nothing good happens (on Facebook) after 2am and even if you do want to write something completely off the wall to a romanTECH interest lets at least keep it off-their-wall.
