I have noticed a new trend lately. On Facebook. [Which by the way, I still contemplate closing down every second day].
I noticed that almost everyone in a relationship needs to have themselves and their partner as their profile picture. I kid you not. More often than not it’s the women. But even my male friends sometimes do it. Why is that?
If you are in a committed relationship, do you suddenly lose yourself? Do you lose your identity? Why is there a need to have photos that show the two of you?
Or is it because that’s the way to show your partner you love them? Or on the other hand, if you are a person with just your photo on your profile, does it mean you don’t love your partner? Or are not committed enough?
Given that everyone I know seems to be getting engaged or married, this is a trend that is only increasing.
Am I the only one cynical enough to question this? Have you noticed any of this and what are your views on this?
Until next time,
