Facebook Can Threaten Relationships

Report: Devices can cause jealousy.

Los Angeles Times

September 4, 2009

Never mind the perils of cyber-stalking, cyber-bullying and posting photos that could endanger your future job prospects: Facebook could be ruining your relationship and driving you toward compulsively jealous behavior.

Social psychologists from the University of Guelph in Canada queried college students who were in romantic relationships about their Facebook use. Their preliminary findings, described in the journal CyberPsychology & Behavior, suggest that rather than enhancing communication between romantic partners, Facebook use may be fueling wild flights of jealous investigation, as users in relationships perceive hints of potential infidelity and then scramble to find evidence of a partner’s unfaithful thoughts or behavior.

Invariably, it seems, they end up feeling more jealous.

And where does this lead? For some participants in the study, these investigations led to searching behavior they described as “addictive.” And the bouts of escalating jealousy, say the researchers, cannot be good for a relationship.

While the survey was of college students, the researchers surmised that Facebook might unleash the same dynamics in adult relationships. Certainly, they noted, it’s worth further research.

The research team responsible for the latest survey has previously found that young adults’ need for popularity led them to disclose far more personal information on Facebook than they would reveal in the course of ordinary social contact.

My generation


The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination
Albert Einstein

Help Is Coming By Ayo

Situation could be much better
much better than today
you know that you could do much better
much better than you do today
but how come you never try to change situation
how come you always escape
out of a serious conversation
dont’t you know it can’t never be too late
for us to succeed
out of every misery
you can be released
as long as you beleive

Help is coming
As long as you beleive
Help is coming
For us to be released

For us to be released

Your lifestyle could be so different
From how it is right now
Know that you could change so many things
If only you want that
You should know it can’t never be too late
Just get up and try
And if you fall and wonder why
Just try an other time
But don’t give up to fight

Help is coming
As long as you beleive
Help is coming
For us to be released
For us to be released

You’re always looking for a scapegoat
Like everything is their fault
And never ever you gonna say maybe I did mistake
I black and white sky
Never you gonna say why
like you know everything in what thay say just can’t be right
How come you never change
How come you always failed in everything you did before back then until today

Help is coming
As long as you beleive
Help is coming
For us to be released
For us to be released

I need you so much closer

of all the people you can trust .. you trusted in the wrong one

are you angry?

Dame un momento, dame un lugar...Dame sentimiento, hazme especial

He perdido el sentido de seguir buscando
El pedazo que quedó desubicado
Porque sé que si lo encuentro no podré guardar silencio
Y sabrás que siendo entera tengo miedo.

Si descubro que no siento
Que la pasión me abandonó
Nunca supe usar la razón
Soy atracción de pasajero
Mañana me olvidarán
Y la historia sigue...

Dame un momento dame un lugar
Sé que si me voy me voy me voy me voy
No vuelvo más Dame sentimiento, hazme especial
Sé que si me voy me voy me voy me voy
No vuelvo más
Y quizá recordárás.

Dicen que la vida de un hombre acompañado
Se recuerdo más que al hombre solitario.

Pero si dejo de perderme
Y llega la felicidad
Sé que no podría aguantar
Sólo los genios permanecen
Mañana me olvidarás

y la historia sigue...
Dame un momento, dame un lugar
Sé que si me voy me voy me voy me voy
No vuelvo más Dame sentimiento, hazme especial
Sé que si me voy me voy me voy me voy
No vuelvo más
Y quizá recordárás
Y quizá recordarás.

Napoleon Bonaparte Love Letter To Josephine

To Josephine

Dec. 29, 1795

I awake all filled with you. Your image and the intoxicating pleasures of last night, allow my senses no rest.

Sweet and matchless Josephine, how strangely you work upon my heart.

Are you angry with me? Are you unhappy? Are you upset?

My soul is broken with grief and my love for you forbids repose. But how can I rest any more, when I yield to the feeling that masters my inmost self, when I quaff from your lips and from your heart a scorching flame?

Yes! One night has taught me how far your portrait falls short of yourself!

You start at midday: in three hours I shall see you again.

Till then, a thousand kisses, mio dolce amor! but give me none back for they set my blood on fire.

I'm here if you're scared to go through


Albert Hammond Jr.-Scared

You are so beautiful and every scar makes you that way.
