Strange then, I realised recently, that I have rarely been properly on my own.
I haven’t lived with a boyfriend, introduced anyone to my parents, or been on a mini-break.
Yet it’s so easy to get carried away with texting or instant messaging.
Having just counselled a friend through an ambiguous ‘relationship’ characterised by furious text conversations and the occasional meet-up, I then found myself helping another friend decide what to wear when she met up with a man whose activities she’d been obsessively following on Facebook for months. ‘It wasn’t as thrilling as I’d hoped it would be…’ admitted my friend afterwards.
‘I think he was a little tired.’ Such disappointment shouldn’t come as a surprise, says Emma Weighill-Baskerville, a psychotherapist and relationship specialist.
‘The person may not fulfil the fantasy created through literary communication alone – this is only one piece of an individual.
With texts, you are allowing a large space for fantasy to take over.’ The common business of ‘researching’ potential dates on Facebook, Twitter and Google can lead to similar disappointment – especially for a generation like mine, who curate their Facebook pages to PR-worthy standards.
One friend furiously edits her Facebook page when a man she likes accepts her friend request.
I also tend to have a few guys on a low-level stalk on Facebook, and there’s always that frisson of excitement when an attractive man retweets one of my ‘LOLz-ier’ status updates. I wasn’t the only one of my girlfriends to leave early that night.If I’m bored or lonely, there’s always a temptation to reconnect.Perhaps among all those frogs there was actually a prince?Telegraph Dating is an online dating service that will help you find women and men like you.Our goal is simple: to add love, romance and fun to the lives of single people.
