When was the last time you recall buying flowers for the one you love? Or taking some time off to make something for them that they’ll treasure for the rest of their life? Society has associated love with modern technology, where a “heart” reaction on social media is practically the same as giving your heart to someone(metaphorically though).
There is no doubt about the conveniences social media has brought us. But along with these conveniences, it has also changed how we experience and express our emotions. A flower emoji is the new “I love you” and in-person conversations have been replaced by texts and emails. Let’s get to the heart of the modern day problems associated with relationships, shall we?
1. You liked a picture!? You’re dead!
Many of us must have faced at least one crazy girlfriend/boyfriend situation. The ones who start to make plans for keeping you hostage in a room with themselves because how dare you smile at a person other than them. Imagine just “liking” a picture on facebook, only to find out that your partner is sharpening their knives preparing for a threatening interrogation.
