Cookie Corner Question
The other night, I was trying to get in touch with my husband. He wasn't answering his cell phone so I figured it was on silent. So I updated my FB status telling him to check his text messages. He got the message and instantly texted me back. Isn't that funny?!
But the whole premise for me coming on to blog this evening is to pose a question and illustrate a scenario.
In addition to all the information I just provided, let me explain a situation. Say for instance you meet friends online, either from a blogger group or a discussion board or even facebook. One day, you put a profound statement as your status update. Even your spouse admits the poetry in it. Then along comes someone of the opposite sex saying how beautiful you are. Whether he/she means physically or mentally is up for debate. Your spouse flips out.
What, exactly, is appropriate behavior on the internet? How should my spouse treat the "beautiful" comment? Should my spouse confront the other about the types of friends he/she keeps on the internet? What should I say to the person who called me beautiful? Does this mean automatic deletion?
The internet can be so personal. A woman hitting on my man via email or FaceBook inbox could never be detected by me.
What are your thoughts?
