When it comes to stalking my significant other on social media, I wouldn’t say that I’m obsessed (okay, I mean, after the first six months of our relationship, that is). However, I do check it out his recent wall posts and uploaded photos every now and again, which I think is pretty normal. The lack of flirtatious comments or heart-eyed emojis from girls with bikini-clad profile pics puts me back at ease in my relationship, and my “taken” status lives to see another day.
However, things are about to get a lot more tricky for those of us in relationships, because Facebook may be about to launch the ultimate tool for sneaking around. The ‘Book has been beta testing “private comments,” meaning that you can now leave a protected comment on someone’s status or photo that only the recipient can see. Not only does this mean that other girls could be commenting on your bae’s new prof pic, but bae could be doing it to other girls too. *Insert panic attack here.*
I’d like to take this moment to say a few words for every jealous girlfriend out there. Between setting your own thumbprint as a TouchID passcode to creeping through his deleted messages from 2011 while he showers, we’ve had a pretty good run. However, those days are now gone, and with this goes our sense of security and control over every man to cross our paths. Hopefully though, we will take this new era as a golden opportunity — one in which we only enter relationships truly built on trust and therefore eliminate the need to creep altogether.
Who am I kidding? We’re all doomed. RIP all jealous girlfriends. It was nice knowing you..
