I’m watching a movie with my boyfriend when he suddenly picks up his phone. He can’t go one night without it. I look over his shoulder to see what he’s up to. Is he just looking at his Facebook newsfeed or is chatting with someone on Facebook messenger? Or will he give me his typical bullshit excuse – he’s making an appointment.
Turns out he’s messaging a young pretty blonde. I can see her name in bold print, but not their conversation. I can’t take it anymore. I ask, “Who are you talking to?” He feeds me a story about how he met her. Apparently, they met through work. “I’m like a big brother to her,” he tries to reassure. Oh, and she’s 26 and “having some issues with her boyfriend.” So, why have you liked every single photo she’s shared on Facebook?! I think. I choose not to say anything even though he refuses to be my friend on Facebook. And he’s my boyfriend!
His lame excuse: I’ll freak out if we’re Facebook official.
Days later, I come to my senses. I realize he doesn’t want any connection with me on Facebook because of everything he’s been up to. He’s enjoying the best of both worlds. Since he likes being single so much, I granted his wish and kicked his lying ass to the curb. Now he has more time for Facebook and to set “appointments.”
