My girlfriend is on social media all the time and it’s sort of annoying?
What Girls Said 16
I’m sorry but that’s not only annoying but that’s downright rude to do when you're with people and there’re talking to you.
That shit has always annoyed me. I’ve actually snatched people’s phones away. 😂
I agree with you, I don’t see why people need to be looking at their phones constantly, they’re missing out on real life and all the possible experiences around them, for what? Someone else’s experiences and shit?
Seems like a waste to me.2

My husband was a bit like that after he found a music maker and started sharing his songs on social media, Twitter being the worst.
If my husband doesn't give me eye contact while I'm talking to him I'll stop what I'm saying until he does.
I tell when enough is enough when it comes to him having his headphones on.
We do have three kids and at times I just felt like he wasn't present.
"The straw that broke the camels back"
He was getting ready for bed on night and I was already waiting for him wearing his favourite pair of sexy knickers. Just before he got to bed he checked his phone and he'd received a message from a famous singer (not the real person it was a fake account). He wanted my husband to send him some of his songs, my husband left the bedroom saying that he wouldn't be long (20minutes) he was gone. Totally killed my mood and when he returned he said "now where were we? " and replied with a "well I did want sex but now I'm upset with you for choosing someone that you've never met over me, so I'm going to say goodnight".
He did learn a valuable lesson that night.1
There's a time and place for that. When she is by herself then no problem. When she is with you or others, she needs to give them her attention and put the phone away. Seems like some rules need to be discussed. And if she doesn't want to comply then it is more important to her, then she needs to be left to it - alone. I would find it annoying too. I'd find someone that wanted to focus on me and others, especially out of respect.0
I have the same problem with my boyfriend, he at one time deleted all of his accounts but he recently got Instagram again and that's all he does when I get to see him, he works 64 hours a week, he gets home plops down on the couch and expects me to make dinner every night and clean everything and its starting to be an issue0
Then it is time to breakup because she doesn't care of what u say she should spending time with u then on her phone
Spending time together is what makes a relationship work
But being on the phone doesn't
Yeah, that sounds fucking annoying. Just keep calling her out for it and ask her how she'd feel if you stared at your phone while she was talking to you.1
I agree with you. I also felt quite neglected when my boyfriend played Europa Universalis when I was with him or when we were video chatting. Politely but determinately tell her that if you are together respect your time and attention.1
I know people like this I can see how it is a problem.0
I was raised to believe that its incredibly rude to be on your phone when you're with company of any kind. Everyone feels differently about phone usage, but I personally think it shows a lack of social grace and respect for others. That's just how I feel though. It's a dealbreaker for me when it comes to dating. You could always ask her to go on a phone diet or make a game out of it:"How long can you go without picking you're phone?". Make a bet out of it, or make it a sexual game somehow. I don't know, random solutions coming to mind. If it bothers you that much.0
Drop her if she's that obsessed she can't focus on ur family too that's a issue3
Phones are addictive, I have family who do the same and I find it obnoxious0
Can’t stand that. Tell her to read a book1
No, that's normal for our generation0
Take her to Disney. Lol. Jk.
I would just confront the issue until you finally make a solution or meeting somewhere in the middle0

I'd rather have her on her phone than annoying me by talking in my ear all the time. But if we were actually doing something together and she was on social media I'd feel neglected as fuck. Sadly, this generation grew up online and has the attention span of a gnat. Always gotta stay "connected", even at the expense of your in-person connections. Sad way to live.0
Dude I have the same problem I don't know wtf it is but she'd rather watch YouTube or scroll through fb and IG instead of talk to me or fuck me it's like wtf literally any time of day she's not busy that's what she's doing.0
That gonna be fine only if you gonna stop giving her attention.
You have to be busy with your work.
And when she feel you were missing, then explain her
And make her yours once again.1
My girlfriend was like that until I decided to become more entertaining than garbage like Instagram could ever be.
You can't like a phone app steal your girl from you like that. This is war and you're losing soldiers fast.0
My girlfriend used to do this a lot!
When I brought it up , she told me she gets anxiety when it comes to being around groups of people.
Does ur girlfriend have anxiety?0
I had an ex that would not get off of her phone to save her life, whenever we "spent" time together like going to a restaurant, going to a park, trying to have a conversation, and etc. Her face would always be buried in her phone.0
Because she probably has no real interests outside of social media, which is the sad reality. I'm not telling people how to live their lives but I'll definitely express my distaste for it.1
Yeah I find it annoying too. The internet played a major role in killing my marriage. My ex-wife spent more time talking to people online than she did me or our kids.0
Uh your age has nothing to do with it; I've always felt that way. Why "smart" phones are probably the worst invention in the history of the modern age, even worse than television.0
Hack her... my ex did that too but i just cracked her password and managed to stop it for a phew months... word of advice... dont let her/it find out1
No as I do the same whist I'm watching tv or gaming that's just what she does for entertainment1
Keep her far from social media give her your time and love make her feel special take her out even you need have intercourse but only with her rights0
Holy shit is right. People today need to regulate their electronics.0
I hate to say this bud, but there are millions upon millions of people just like her0
Ask her to stop for one week for you. If she won't stop Dump her ass0
If you love her Just say it loudly to her and Explain it to her how it is shell understand0
