The Humor Of Headlines On Social Networking Sites

Headlines can tell a lot about a person. Typically by reading about 10 of them on a page we can  tell if that person is a positive or negative person.  I have listed the headlines as I read them when browsing profiles of strangers last night. Next to what they had as their headline I have listed what the person really meant to say.

(WARNING:This exercise is intended to be humorous and is not intended for paranoid people. May cause the participants to self-check and have flashbacks of this blog prior to every headline they post from the time of reading and forward. Those without personality should not read this. )

“Sick of crazy ex’s!”   What they meant to put is “I’m the crazy ex!”

“Tired of people not telling the truth!”  What they meant is ” I could not tell the truth if my life depended on it.”

“My life is a mess” they meant to say  “I am a mess”

“My toe, throat, neck, tooth, or back  hurts” they meant to say  “can someone please feel sorry for me so I can justify this bad day?”

“My kids are out of control”  should read  ” I have slacked in my parenting and now things are out of control. It is my own fault. “

“I hate my parents!” should read ” Darn it, they got me again. And they are right! “

” Drama, why can’t people leave me alone”  really says  “maybe I should quit running my mouth and stirring up trouble.”

“Some people suck!” should read “I hate it when people call me out!”

“I don’t care about what anyone thinks of me!” means “I get hung up when people don’t like me!”

“My relationship status is complicated”  truly means  “I really want to test the waters. Perhaps cheat. Is there something better out there for me?”

“I want to slap someone” should read “I need slapped. I am ignorant.”

“Some people never change”  says  “I’m so busy watching other people I don’t look at myself. I fear change”

“Hates cheaters”  says  “Hey everyone, I have cheated before!”

“Anybody have someone they can fix me up with?” really says, “Hey all! I’m lonely, insecure, and desperate. Please send an innocent loved one for me to inflict my misery on. Thank you!”

“I’m amazed with what people do to make a quick buck”  says  “man I wish I had some drive and ambition. I should do something with my life. “

Now that you know what headlines say to me, what do headlines say to you? There is some humor in them.  Who projects negative and who projects positive? What are they really trying to say? Do you have any to add to this list?

The Splinternet, Marriage, & Social Networking Sites

This gals shirt reads “Myspace ruined my relationship”


Many people know the dangers facing marriages these days due to social networking sites. The internet in a large percentage of families, could be better described as “The Splinternet.”

Many couples see no danger when they first create a profile on sites such as Myspace, Facebook, twitter etc. The problem however is that it is all to easy to lose sight of what is really important, your marriage. Especially if there is an issue of loneliness and companionship.

I think in order to eliminate the odds of cheating that both people should have active accounts. I feel that passwords should be shared. I know it may sound absolutely ridiculous, but it is not. Many can attest to the fact that they too, were damaged by the splinternet.

It is all to easy to start searching through your past, wondering why you and Billy Bob or Suzy-Q never ended up together. They are single or in a miserable marriage now, and well, your spouse doesn’t pay much attention to you. Heck, you can’t even remember the last time you had an orgasm you didn’t have to fake with your spouse. It’s been years since you heard “Hey beautiful!”, “You are amazing”, the list goes on and on.

When a marriage is already struggling (or not struggling in some cases) it can take something as simple as “You are beautiful” or “You are handsome, you haven’t changed a bit” and then likely the affair will begin. It will be innocent, at first. Just old friends catching up, no biggie. It’s just an innocent email, text, phone call or lunch! Aw, it’s just a reunion with some old school friends, why should you take your spouse when someone has to stay back to watch the kids?

I would like to think that at least 95% of cheaters, thought they would never cheat. Those that say they never will or would, probably haven’t lived long enough or have experienced it’s effects at some point in their life to have come to such a decision. Regardless of your opinion on the matter, you don’t know what you would do until you were in the situation. We are all capable of the same things, and not a soul on this earth is incapable of cheating.

So be careful! Families tearing apart causes excruciating pain as you know. If your spouse doesn’t have an account, you probably shouldn’t either. Spend the time with him/her, your children, and the things that truly matter. You had those years with those people, and these years with your children …. you will never get back. Do the right thing! If not, guilt will eat at you for years to come. The past is a past for a reason. Let it be just that, the past.
