Over the past few years, I’ve found that a large number of the people I know have found Mr./Mrs. Right through MySpace and Facebook. After some cyber dating, one of them will uproot themselves, and in some cases, their families, and move hundreds of miles to move in with their Facebook friend.
Shockingly, the relationships go sour really fast. Feelings get hurt, things are said, and the whole house of cards spirals to the ground.
And just as alarming to me is their desire to ask ME what I thought had gone wrong.
I have worked a really long time to tone down my Blunt Gene, but I am still only human. I hate it when they set themselves up so perfectly….
Finally, I figured out an answer that I think says it all, while not sending people into pits of self-hatred, and still allows me to sit at the cool table.
“Because you both still believe in Santa Claus.”
Most of us humans usually know what the honest answers are to our questions. We just tend to poll our friendships looking for one answer that makes us feel better about our dumb mistakes.
