- Wedding: June 2014
Question: On Facebook, I have barely pictures of me, no relationship status updates despite having been dating my fiance for almost 5 years and engaged since last year, no blatant pictures of my ring, and no pictures of my fiance. Also, when we mailed the invitations to our wedding, we explicitly requested our guests not broadcast any information about our wedding on Facebook or other social media. When we get married, we haven’t decided if we will post anything about it. So, is that really weird? Or are their others like me?
A little background:
My fiance and I are both private people by nature of personality and career paths.
My fiance is still holding the flame for anti-social media anti-Facebook, he sees it as a waste of time and doesn’t like broadcasting his business.
I’m 30 and I was a late bloomer to Facebook like 2010-11, maybe. I missed the whole Facebook college thing with drunken Frat pictures to hide before applying to a job. My philosophy was more of “if we haven’t kept in contact since high school, then there was probably a reason.” When I finally joined up, I did the whole lets go through the year book for a month and was kinda done with it. Most of the people were consistent, good head on their shoulders – good life, bad head on their shoulders -questionable life, and then a few wild cards where you said WOAH!
When I do post, I’m very filtered in my posts about my life on Facebook (cool restaurants; other travels; funny things my dog does, crazy drivers, cool photos, etc).
