I've been using Twitter for about a year but just recently decided to have an account for Grad-Student GF. (You can follow me here!) To get the ball on the roll, I decided just to search around for what people were saying about relationships. Let me just say: it's a fucking Tweet disaster.
Here are a few charming 140-character or so pearls of wisdom I have uncovered:
"Guys love you more than you love them if they are serious in your relationships."
I have no idea where this chica got this idea or why she felt the need to share it with the world, but seriously, WTF does this even mean? What does it mean for partners to love unequally--and for that to be a sign that the relationship is serious?
"Just b/c sum1 isn't Mentioned that Doesn't Mean they arnt important; The BEST Relationships R Kept Private."
Did you get that with all the Twitter talk? And what's up with all of the weird capitalization? Again, a sweeping generalization that makes me go, "WTF?" The best relationships are kept private--really? I think that depends on what kind of person you are. If I kept a relationship private, it would be because I was keeping it a secret from those closest to me, which would mean something was off. And I don't know, if someone's important, I think they just come up in conversation. That's just me.
"She never had a father at home, that's why she needs the father in you."
Needless to say, when it comes to relationship advice, Twitter is for humor, and that's about it. Have you come across any particularly horrible relationship advice on Twitter or elsewhere? Share it with us!
