“Every day she tags me in stuff on Facebook. Every day.
Like several times a day.
As if she bounces around the internet just looking for random stuff to let me know is out there.
Memes, events, stories etc.
I used to find it annoying. I didn’t really know why half of it was relevant.
But over time I’ve learned that she tags me in stuff because it’s either funny, insightful or relevant to us and our relationship.
Sometimes it helps her tell me something because it’s so relevant and she couldn’t have said it better herself.
I try to make a point of acknowledging it. It doesn’t take any effort at all.
To be honest it helps me gauge where she’s at and what she’s looking at online.
Sometimes it forms the basis of our conversations when I get home.
So often I come home to a ‘Did you see that thing I tagged you in?’ As silly as it sounds, it helps us communicate.
Women tag men in basically everything I ever post.
I always see the same reply of ‘I ain’t reading that’ or ‘too long’…. that’s it….
The conversation goes no further.
Whatever message she was trying to send him was rejected because of sheer arrogance and inability to take a few seconds to read something that was probably important to how she was feeling.
Read the post. Just f*cking read it.
If she tagged you in it, she wants you to look at it.
If you were at the park and she said ‘hey look at that’ would you ignore it?
Would you make a snide remark about how much effort it will take you to see it? I think not.
Show her you love her. Let her know you care. Read the post!”
