Truths about dating and mating

So, even though your first impression of him was solid, your date with his social media profile left you unsure if you’ll accept the next dinner invitation.These are just a few examples of how social media has hijacked so many would-be relationships — online profiles, new “friends,” and unwanted notifications can also cause problems once a relationship has begun.

After all, his photos might just be the most exciting thing about him. Then there are rare occasions when you meet someone using an archaic style of interaction — in person.

You are his present, but social media has you living in his past.

The truth is, the content and character of a possible love should be revealed in layers.

The updates he posts, the photos he takes, and the statuses he likes have become equally as important as the words out of his mouth.

During dinner, one of you may even sporadically reference an application on your i Phone to illustrate a story you’re telling or to give a visual of your best friend, who is just too fabulous to describe in words.

Unfortunately, the longevity of such matchmaking would be about as good as your i Phone battery life.

Sure, social media profiles can be used as supplemental reading when studying a person’s qualifications as a potential plus one.

But you are wasting your time if you use things like Facebook and Instagram to learn about content required to answer all the right questions.

When it comes to dating and mating, sometimes it helps to unplug in order to connect.

The development of a fruitful relationship takes effort, and it is impossible to reach a level of depth with a person by meticulously piecing apart their Facebook caricature.

The Cliff’s Notes of a person’s life will never give you an accurate representation.

Shambhala Masters want our students to understand the world and themselves in terms of relationships because life is not a series of unrelated, unpredictable events. Shambhala students must learn how everything is interrelated and how it all relates to them or they will remain remote controlled robots.
