Twitter is not a dating site

opinion

I so wish I could remember who wrote a brilliant tweet about this — it was along the lines of: Not for me, of course.

There are Twitter weddings, Twitter...

My Twitter story has been peeny pix, predators and perves. Great if I need a team of solicitors, but not so great for the old lovelife. Some use it as a type of diary to keep the world informed about their lives — so followers get to feel they know that person. In social psychology, there are three things that lead to friendship and love: On Twitter, there are no romantic expectations and no pressure to be romantically liked so communication is natural and genuine and the connection starts off as a friendship.

The best relationships, and the most long-lasting ones, are often ones that start with friendship. Totally fosters the excitement: They got Twitter is not a dating site last year.

One of the things I did for our wedding was look up all of our original tweets to each other.
