So you met a girl and you exchanged names? Boy, this girl probably already knows where you went to school, what your ex-girlfriends look like, if you have any mutual friends, who your parents are, where you’re from, etc. among many other personal pieces of information. If you shared all the above with her, great and probably way too soon to be doing that, but no judgments. But odds are, you probably only told her your name and possibly where you went to college. The culprit for why she knows so much about you? Facebook and the utter lack for spontaneity, mystery and the fun of getting to know someone. Facebook is more and more utilized for discovering a wealth of information about people you don’t actually know.
I’ll admit it, the minute I know a new guy’s name, I look him up on Facebook. I want photographic proof that he’s as cute (hopefully even more attractive) than my drunk eyes led me to believe. My drunk eyes are pretty darn bad though and majority of these encounters, where I’m convinced I just made out with Taylor Kitch’s twin, turns into a skinny, creepy, hard on the eyes dude that lives in a trailer park. So Facebook is more of a safety precaution for me.
I’ve had a few guys I’ve met before where we had a mutually blacked out encounter, resulting in texting and multiple questions like, “what do you look like?”. Dude, just look me up on Facebook. How is this not your first instinct when you’re talking to some chick that could possibly look like John Travolta or maybe (far reach) Miranda Kerr? You should know what you’re getting yourself into. I personally will only continue these random communications if I am certain I am ghost texting a real babe and that has only occurred once, thanks to Facebook for the confirmation.
And if your privacy settings are real strict for public viewers and if you get a friend request from a random girl you don’t know, it’s probably her friend. Just saying.
Girls these days are going to research you, hard. But guys, I’m a little confused how you’re so slow to the ball? If you want to know more about a mystery gal, it’s a lot easier to stalk her and find out then asking ambiguous questions about her characteristics.
I don’t believe in Facebook stalking when you meet a guy organically. It’s so rare to meet a guy that way these days (or maybe I just have issues) that it’s fun to learn about each other with every encounter. But if I meet a guy at a bar and/or drunk (which seems to be me 97% of the time), I am looking to the book for a little background.
