Facebook Faux Pas
We get it. You’re in love.
You’ve found The One and your love story makes the Notebook look like a B-rated horror film.
You guys just can’t get enough of each other so you share everything and do everything together. Hell, even your circle of friends is the same.
And that’s all well and good, but does all this mean you have to share a Facebook account? I mean, aren’t there just some things you can keep separate like… I dunno… pooping or sharing profiles?
If my significant other and I shared an account it would be really freak’in confusing to all viewers because half the time ChrisAndMcClain would be yelling about politics, then show pics of cool cars, then post a deep meme about life, then post a video with a bunch of frat guys, I dunno, farting on their dogs or something.
ChrisAndMcclain would come across as a bipolar schizo.
“But we’re in loooooooooove,” some of you will argue. Yeah, ok, but sharing a profile on Facebook seems less like love and more like control, as pointed out by this writer.
People are pretty territorial over where they are from – even if they simultaneously bitch about their hometown all the time.
It’s kind of like when you hear other people make comments about your boyfriend or mom. YOU can totally complain about them for hours but if anyone else dares say something to the same effect suddenly, you’re protective Mama Bear.
I grew up in a small town and knew everyone, so naturally, being the spoiled little teen-brat I was, I always told everyone how I couldn’t wait to get out of “this shithole.”
Mind you, my version of hell was Vail, Colorado so not only was I grossly mistaken, I was (like I said) an ungrateful teen brat.
The point is, most people don’t appreciate where they’re from until they get a dose of the real world. But even if you ended up thousands of miles away from home, you still probably think of it with nostalgia and tenderness.
And even if you STILL, years later and miles away, attest to the fact that it was a hell-hole, surely you can laugh at these pictures that stereotypically summarize every state in the U.S.

This haunting and beautiful ice skating video has been dominating social media because it truly is THAT spine chilling.
