Oversharing Can Be Good For Friendship

Do You Tend to Undershare or Overshare?

Twitter, Facebook, and the Internet in general make oversharing all too easy. But don't overcompensate by keeping everything to yourself! Not surprisingly, psychologists say putting an emotional guard up can cause you to miss friendship opportunities. I can back that up with anecdotal evidence. I always find that sharing a juicy dating story or a relatable insecurity helps me bond with potential friends. Just like a little self-deprecating humor, sharing details about your personal life can make you seem approachable and likable. Of course we don't need to know everything you ate in a day, hear you whine every time you get stuck in traffic, or get into graphic details about your sex life — at least not until we're really good friends!
