Sharing love on Facebook could be a romance ender!

Let me set the stage for a drama playing out on Facebook: We met "Joe" thru a Facebook yard sale group, he bought several items from us so we friended each other. Then, over a year ago, he had a girlfriend. We met her. They seemed like a nice couple. Next thing I saw was the girlfriend was in a very serious accident and that was either the end of her or the end of their relationship. I never did figure that out. All her photos and any reminders had been removed from his page. Joe was alone since then, working hard remodeling his home. A few days ago a blond lady 'Sue" professed her love for Joe she posted photos of the two of them. The next day she used his Facebook page to post more photos and all kinds of declarations of love...such as: ....this has been the best few weeks...we were both looking for love and we found it together....I am so happy....I just love 'us'. (there was more but you get the point.) For curiosity I went to Sue's Facebook page and scrolled through more photos until I hit something quite interesting just a few months ago. There were no photos, just professions of love for a guy named "Ted"...it went something like this.... This has been the best three weeks of my life...we found love when we found each other...can't wait to see where this goes...I love you so much.. (and it also went on and on.) Now, does anyone else want to ask her the following: If you are so in love with Joe don't you think it would be a good idea to go back and deleted all the stuff about Ted? I hope she isn't just using Joe - I see a pattern developing here....oh what fun Facebook can be at times! Photo from Pixabay

I agree and if he is a smart man he would check her Facebook page and see what her past is.

@AbbyGreenhill I fully agree, now we have a way to check, it's better to do this before establishing a stable relationship.

She sure does and I would say she is probably in her 50s.

@AbbyGreenhill Yikes. I bet "Ted" ran for the hills when those postings started, and "Joe" probably won't be all that far behind.

Romance is not to be shared in that way, is to be lived.

I think the romance may be a little one sided.

Who wants to conduct their love affair on FB? I just can't see the reasoning behind all this baring of the soul for all and sundry to see.

Yesterday evening she posted the same 5 or 6 photos of them over and over and over. I would unfriend him but I want to see where this goes LOL!

Reading this made me laugh because I have seen the same type things in my Facebook News Feeds at times. Some people are so dumb with what they share on Facebook and some women are desperate. Also, I have two "friends" on my Friend's list who just express all their frustrations with their lives and jobs and use the F word continuously. I think, if an employer would see their walls and see the filth, it could hurt their jobs.

It's OK. "Joe's" get used a lot.
