Are Facebook Users Afraid Of Love?


Afraid of LovePerhaps there are extenuating circumstance at work. Perhaps my last post discussing love, true love, appeared at precisely the wrong time. Or maybe I struck the nail on the proverbial head. Normally, I have a certain percentage of hits per day and FB users make up the larger portion… until last night. Twitter and direct users outnumbered Facebook users by a 3-1 margin. So I’m left to wonder if Facebook users are afraid of true love.

If so, I’m forced to ask why. Is it fear of rejection? Is it fear of abandonment? Is it fear that your significant other is merely in love with an illusion? Please, Facebook users, don’t misunderstand, I’m not saying you are these things, I’m asking if my data is lying to me. Tell me if love is prevalent in your life and guides you through the trials and tribulations of everyday life. Tell me that you’re ecstatic with your life partner (or at least happy). Be honest with yourself and me (if you feel comfortable enough to do so). In recent days I’ve had to remind more than a few people that the absence of hate or ennui is not love… much like the absence of misery or sadness does not mean they are happy. Are you truly happy? If not, why? Feel free to post comments anonymously if you like. I am just infinitely curious. To be fair, these questions transcend Facebook users and extend to everyone. Are you happy in your current relationship? If so, why? If not, why not? I’m┬áby no means a relationship guru, just an inquisitive party.
