Oh, if only life were this simple. You fall in love on Facebook. You get married on MySpace. You honeymoon on Photobucket.
Later, you sneak over to Twitter and have a brief, slam-bam (140-characters, ma’am!) affair. Incriminating photos are posted on Flickr.
Things get nasty on LiveJournal. Everyone finds out through StumbleUpon. And your divorce is broadcast on YouTube…
Start to finish, the romance only takes–what? Thirty minutes?
SCENE: A woman smiles and talks to a man as the man beside her glares.
WOMAN: No! We’re not divorced--yet! But I de-friended him on Facebook!

I thought you were my friend. <Sniff!> But if you don’t like me on Facebook–where bosom buddies are only a mouse click away–are we really friends?
Oh, crud! Why are you putting me through this? Other people pretend to like me. Why not you too?
SCENE: Woman sitting at a computer.
WOMAN: Sure! I’ll drive you to the hospital...if I ever get off facebook! ’Til then,
try to stop bleeding so much!
