The reason i ask this is because it's becoming clear that a lot of people go through breakups due to social media. i have been dating my girlfriend since last December and everything is going great between us and her 4 yo daughter also likes me a lot. I've met her family, her colleagues etc... she is just very active on social media. she has a lot of friends, mostly guy friends online, and it bothers me because she keeps mentioning them every single day. i see how it runs her down sometimes and to me it sends off the wrong message. Im there to spend time with her and her daughter, to discuss us and im ok with her having friends etc but talking about them all day is just too much sometimes. in the end its not these people who are there for her when she needs someone the most, its me, or her parents or her real friends. im also not a big fan of her liking pictures of other guys but well, appearantly everybody does that, excluding myself, so i dont feel like saying something about that, but she really needs to cut down on those social media friends. how do you handle it, have you talked to your SO and how did they take it. Less social media is better in a relationship, at least thats how i see it.

I understand just what you mean.. My boyfriend is really friendly and he has a lot of friends that are girls. Most of them look like models and a couple of them do model so I'm just like uhh why are you with me -_- (I'm insecure though) but I know how you feel and he talks about them sometimes or used to before I said something. I just asked why he talked to them so much and he said sorry he would stop and hasn't spoke to them as much I wasn't trying to totally cut him off from friends... so just explain how you feel! If she cares for you she will stop. Or cut down on her amount of time to talk to them. Personally I hate social media... you have access to talk to anyone meaning people usually end up finding someone they like better :/ just try to trust until something really gets fishy though.0

If all she's talking about is other guys then fuck yeah it'll bother me. Sure have a couple friends I don't mind but when your life revolves around them it's a problem. If you talk to her about it and make it clear it bothers you but she doesn't care then she's not worth your effort in my opinion.0
