I've been talking about love and marriage because I still have that hangover from the Heart To Heart Conference. And besides, it's the Love Month! :)
Today, I saw the beautiful pre-nup photos of Drew and Iya. And this is my most favorite:
|Such a beautiful couple! :) (Photo Credit: Mango Red)|
I just love Drew and Iya. They are popular celebrities but they know how to keep their relationship private. I guess that's what made them strong as a couple. I admire them for staying faithful to each other amidst the many temptations around them. They weren't a "can't live without each other" type of couple (just like us :D), and despite working for two warring networks, they stayed in love. And just last Friday, they finally tied the knot and officially became Mr. and Mrs. Arellano. And may I just say that it was indeed a perfect private wedding! ♥
See, I'm really a fan of love stories. I find them beautiful and inspiring. However, I don't like it when couples don't know how to use the Private Messaging facility of Facebook and other social media platforms. It's really annoying how "people in love" use social media to publicly display their affection. I mean can't they just tell it directly to each other? Yes, it's good to witness love online once in a while. Pero utang na loob, huwag naman minu-minuto, oras-oras, araw-araw!
I didn't get to catch yesterday's episode of Ang Pinaka but I managed to get their list of Ang Pinaka KSP na Paandar ng Lovers Online! Thanks to their Twitter account. :D (Photos taken from their Facebook account.)
Here's the list:
10. Engaging in Cyber Affairs
“Cyber affair” is having a relationship with another person over the internet, whether you're single, in a relationship, or already married.
9. Stalking Your Lover's Account
|Haha. This. :D|
8. Sharing a Couple's Account
Couples also share an online account that even bears both of their names such as "Brangelina", Rodamelyn" or "Julielmo."
|I repeat: Konting privacy naman!|
7. Sharing Too Much Information
Some couples think they are in a reality show, they share and post every single detail of their lives on their wall posts.
GRRRRRRRRRRRRR. Feeling celebrity much?
6. Liking/Sharing/Reposting Every Single Post of Your Ex
5. Flooding Your Status with Love Quotes
Sometimes our wall posts are flooded with love quotes and intriguing love messages you'd think it's Valentine's Day!
4. Using Kilometric Love Hashtags
2 hashtags lang kailangan ang gagamitin mo, ayon sa "How To Use Hashtags." Get it?
3. Fighting-Breaking-Up-Making-Up Online
@sam_yg: "Your personal quarrels should be kept as private as you can. Don't make social media your public arena."
2. Flooding your Wall with Public Display of Affection
1. Changing Your Relationship Status Everytime You Have an LQ!
@sam_yg: “Kalokohan iyan. It’s a sign of immaturity."
Enough said (again).
As mentioned in one of the sessions during the conference last weekend, an important element in building healthy relationships is privacy. I was discussing about it with a sister and we both agreed that you don't need to post every little thing you share with your partner. What for? To let everybody know that you're happy and you're having a great relationship? If you really are, a Facebook status is not necessary. Sabi nga, "the thing about TRUTH is, it will eventually come to the surface." If you are happily married, then people will know you are, even without the everyday photos of you and your spouse. I don't know who said this first but I couldn't agree more:
|Yeah, baby. :D|
If I haven't stressed it well enough, I'd say it again: Learn to keep things private, please. :)
