Good communication is the foundation of a happy relationship. It is unbelievable to me that anyone would attempt to communicate relationship altering information via a text. Clients have told me they have said I love you for the first time, agreed to be exclusive, held entire arguments and even broken up without speaking a single word to each other. I also think it is cowardly to initiate a date via text.I do understand the appeal for the sender; there is no pressure on what to say if you’re turned down.Both of us have been on Facebook for most of our adult lives.Back when we were in college, the idea of Facebook etiquette would have been laughable but, today, it’s a very real issue. While I haven’t been hooking up with anyone for a few years now, I remembered living in Argentina and having guys asking for my Facebook info even before anything happened.“But you should have a good reason.”So the etiquette experts aren’t on exactly the same page when it comes to Facebook etiquette for hookups.
(This has totally happened to me, by the way.) “The purpose of a hookup or one-night stand is just that — a passionate 24 hours and then a disappearing act,” Gaché tells Bustle.“If you have warm feelings toward this person, and you two covered some personal ground together during your date, why not write him a message and say, ‘Ack, I'm so sorry!I stopped friending people because it has complicated my life’ or some such thing.Hookups and Facebook are two integral parts of the dating scene in 2017 — but should the two ever be combined?That’s the question my best friend and I were pondering over overpriced cocktails recently.“It's a terrible idea to friend a hookup or one-night stand on Facebook,” Alford says.
