Facebook causes infidelity
Yes I said it. Facebook encourages people to have fake relationships with people. They escape reality and form bonds with people they know nothing about. It's so easy to get carried away with chatting with someone else they forget what's actually right there in front of them. People need face to face interactions, not relationships based on computer interactions.

Letter based relationships are better because you're communicating with your souls and saying what's really on your mind.

I agree that writing someone a letter is very personal and many wonderful relationships have been started and nurtured this way. This is not the same as sending flirty messages back and forth.

Never had one, never will. I told my wife if she needs face book that bad then I need 18 yr old girls as friends. Never had a problem since.

It is an excuse, but I'm not excusing those who cheat on their significant others on Facebook. My point is that people do't really have real relationships with people anymore. They would rather send witty comments or click the Like button instead of saying whats really on there minds. It's sad.

Re: Facebook causes infidelity
I have facebook with no male friends that would pose a threat to my marriage, I only have hubby's friends since hubby has a real job that pays great and never wants to risk his teputation by saying something on fb that you can never take back.

When I first joined fb, I allowed old flames and former love interests. As soon as I started getting 'invited out' for things like mini reunions and lunch by guys, I defriended them and kept my circle of fb friends to close family and gf's. I am happily married almost 20 years and refuse to lose anything dear to me, like my awesome husband, over the fleeting attention of men I knew in my past. There was even one guy that had a reputation of hitting on all the girls from our high school just to see if he could get in their pants..... Turns out he is a divorced, wife beater who is now the local town's resident psycho. Facebook is nothing but trouble, if you are happily married, stay off it.

The highest respect you can show a man you love is not to act like an attention whore on facebook.

Facebook taught me one thing.... People are not what they project themselves to be. After having been lied to on there by some former hs friends, I have no desire to connect with 'people from the past', mainly hs peeps. Its the present and future that count. Too many lies on fb and too many people living in the past.

Re: Facebook causes infidelity
Oh, and I would also say that facebook doesn't cause one to cheat, I never have, nor will I despite the fact that it brings people in contact with the ability to hook up. I am a strong, loyal woman. I could never be swayed by some sweet talking person on fb. Its fun to watch people make fools of themselves, though.

Re: Facebook causes infidelity
the ironic thing about facebook, is that it mirrors an online dating site, you think you are getting to 'know' someone, but really people are just crying out for attention. I was always amazed at how if you posted a status update, certain people (creepy guy) would comment or 'like' the status in less than a minute after you posted it. It like some people are on fb 24/7, with no outside life. Its creepy.

I also think that people that cheat or meet future love interests on there face a greater chance of break up because the facebook revolving door of new friends is constant. I have several friends that went through divorce because of fb. One girl met her second hubby on fb, and cheated on her first, now she is getting divorced again, because the new hubby was cheating on her with his old hs sweetheart. so now she is a two time divorcee and finacially ruined, with two kids.

Lol at that shit, soooooo not worth it. People who would cheat without fb are also the ones with 100s and 100s of friends and are wired in 24/7.

If I werd single, I would never date a guy who had fb.

This world needs more dominant men like him. My husband can check my fb anytime, as I have nothing to hide. And anytime I get a friend request, I tell him. If he told me to shut it down, I would, no one in there that I cant already contact in real life or email/phone.

I'm glad to see so many people agree with me. Ultimately though it is up to the person and it isn't an excuse. They have to deal with the consequences of their actions just like everyone else.

imho this is actually a rather profound comment.. and made me laugh at the same time
We look outside to blame and to put a responsibility, that way we make ourselves victims

It is not facebook or computers that creates infedelity, it is our intention and our actions using those

will however agree with you OP in that we need face to face interaction, the words written here are so easily put into a role and a mask... Yet again that is something we chose... It is in our might to share openly

Lots of love
