It’s only been 3 weeks since my wife and I got married, but it’s been quite the 3 weeks. See, we didn’t do the whole “live together” thing while we were dating. So yeah…we’re learning about each other.
With social media as it is, we’re constantly surrounded with the “best” of others.
The best angle.
The best outfit.
The best news.
The best attitude.
Sure, while the mainstream media might often show us the worst of others, what we pick and choose to show about ourselves through social media is often the best we have to offer.
And I can relate. I understand the desire to show ourselves the way we want to be seen, and to leave out the other – not so pretty – details. I find myself doing it as well.
When I first started blogging in college a lot of my posts were about dating. It makes sense as most of my friends and I were all very much into the dating scene at the time.
But it’s been almost 3 years since I graduated and most of my friends are now married.
They’re kind of past the point of no return with the whole dating thing, so until recently I hadn’t really felt the need to share much on the subject.
I’m sure most reading this post – if you haven’t experienced it yourself – have at least seen a relationship that didn’t involve trust. Otherwise fun and exciting relationships that were ruined by the lack of trust from one, or both, of those involved.
