Relationships. When we see or hear this word directly we think of a relationship between a guy and a girl. But what happens when this relationship is built on lies and false information?
After a documentary we sew in our #Lausocial class, I got to wonder who we are really encountering with on facebook, or any other social media medium. The documentary called”CatFish” talks about a person building a relationship with another girl that doesn’t really exist, rather a woman who is sick( I can claim to say ) she’s married with 3 children, flirting around a guy as old as her son, and has over 99 fake accounts on facebook. Online relationships are that (if to happen) of scary ones, you might never get to determine the person he/she sitting behind the PC pouring out lies. While offline relationships can be more sincere in that you get to interact emotionally and physically with the person sitting in front of you. One of the most important things when to establish a relationship is the body language of the person and the eyes; but still the question keeps asking itself can you really determine when some one is lying or not?
In anything in life human beings love to impress, whether at a date, job interview, meeting, the whole point is to put on your best outfit and mask yourself around people, but that is considered accepted as long as no harm is done. But when someone lies about stuff and creates people from the imagination and build relationships on false unrealistic matters this person is considered to be a fraud and needs serious medication.
Online relationship matter a lot from offline ones. But to create a halo of you is there, but when you interact face to face you can get to know a person more than just looking into a PC and have a conversation. Looking into someone’s eyes is much better and efficient than looking into a PC, shaking someone’s hands is better than typing, observing one’s reaction to certain things is definitely more honest than waiting for a reply.
For me with my very humble point of view I consider offline relationships is more honest and sincere and this I can say from experience, interaction is what this whole matter is about to detect lies and know at least a person is really on facebook or he’s/she’s on fakebook.
Always go for eye to eye matter and when things are almost open and true then electronics and online conversations can take place.
