We all have different ways we handle social media display of affection; I’m talking lovers this time.
Some enjoy and yearn continuously for a full show of social media love, some are apathetic towards the need, then the others, a little here and a little there is just fine.
In more than half of the relationships that exist, it is usually the lady that desires the show off like ‘yo nigga put me up, show the world’. For the menfolk, It takes a while time for them to want it but in the long run, they get comfortable and begin to enjoy it.
Daily, lovers have disagreements about each others manner of ‘profession’ and social media is mostly is the benchmark for measurement. I’ve had several friends cry to me about not getting social media validation from their significant other…‘I’m not sure he loves me because he’s never put my picture up on any of his social media accounts’.
Yes! a little truth might be found in context but is social media display of affection the only way we can attest a person’s love for us? Some have resolved to play the game of ‘Post me, I Post you’, it is only when their lovers put them up that they do same.
Let me say this; If you feel the need strongly to recognize that special someone on social media, do so. You don’t have to checkmate if they feel it too, all that matters is what you’re feeling. Some lovers don’t even post themselves on social media except on special occasions like birthdays and I pressure it’s a subliminal agreement, it wasn’t like they sat down to talk about it, they just saw it unfold that way. There’s no doubt that the crave for social media affirmation hits either of them sometimes, but they hold back cause apparently it has never happened before. No one wants to be the one starting it up, right! Lol, so many lover shenanigans innit? 😃
Social Media display of affection should not be a yardstick to measure real love; it is a pixel and we ought to focus more on the bigger picture. If a person loves you and treats you right then viola! You are good to go. I even read somewhere that the major reason for social media validation is insecurity, and I concur. If social media validation matters so much to you then you are definitely insecure.
Well for me I’m apathetic. Social media display of affection has never mattered and I hope it doesn’t begin to matter someday 😂😂. If you gonna put me up, the words to follow better be good mehn, and I don’t mean some indifferent distorted kinda good… I mean pretty pretty goooood! 😉
