My Boyfriend Has Annoying Social Media Habits

"I'm Annoyed By My Boyfriend's Social Media Habits"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I use social media, but in what I think is a productive way. I think my boyfriend is using it in a way that isn't correct, and he's abusing it in a sense. We're both in our late 20s, we both have good jobs and good families, and we've been together for a year and a half but have known each other for eight.

I'm getting very annoyed with him. Sometimes I think it's me and other times I think it's just him. He got a flat tire in a co-worker's car today, and what does he do? He takes a picture and puts it on Facebook. Really? Was that necessary? I know that other people post meaningless stuff all day on Facebook, but I don't want to date someone like that. I don't know why he's doing this but it's really annoying.

He also uses Twitter — not to follow famous people, but to look at pictures of naked girls. There are some lonely, desperate women looking for attention on Twitter. I don't have a problem with porn, but it's pretty annoying that he's looking at Twitter to see pictures of naked women. He subscribes to Playboy, which I'm okay with, but isn't that enough? I really feel like telling him that I'm never going to send him another sexy picture of me because he looks at them all day, so what does he need mine for?

I'm really annoyed. I just think we're supposed to be maturing at an age where this stuff is getting old already. Is he ever going to mature? Am I just being a bitchy girlfriend?

There is a lot of over sharing on social media sites. Every time I'm on facebook I see pictures of people's dinners on the plate, their paper cuts, the traffic in front of them on the freeway...and I agree, it's weird. For some reason we want 200 people to know what we're up to every second of the day. It's just the way it is today, and he's no freakier than anyone else out there. My concern is with the twitter thing. Do you know if he's chatting with these girls, or just looking? Are they local girls he could potentially hook up with? Whatever the case I would be very bothered by that. If you haven't yet, you really need to discuss it with him and tell him how it makes you feel. In both of your situations, if it's bothering you enough to go looking for advice/insight, it's important enough to have a heart to heart about. Good luck.
