Don’t waste time wondering why she didn’t Tweet you back, stalking his tagged photos from that party that he didn’t ask you to because he’s a jerk and his date wasn’t even cute… but I digress. If there’s a serious issue, just talk about it! Don’t worry about these trivial matters. “Facebook stalking is tricky because sometimes you see stuff you didn’t know or might get the wrong idea about someone,” said Justin Cartagena, a senior English major at University of Maryland. “[Those are] the ups and downs of extreme social networking.”
Make the time to have real conversations. Speak up: talk about what’s bothering you and what’s going well. Adeiva Imbrigato, a senior nursing major at Trinity Washington University, has resolved to improve communication with her boyfriend this year. “The little bit of time we do have to actually talk shouldn’t be totally wasted. I want to take advantage of every moment,” she said.
Have a girls’ night in or guys’ night out – whatever you need to do to not become clingy. We all have (or have been) that friend that suddenly disappears when there’s someone special in their lives. Make an effort to see and spend time with those people that have been there before the boyfriend or girlfriend.
