Our parents dated before the age of Instagram, direct messaging and Facebook Messenger. Before the age of “likes,” “RTs” and emojis. Hell, my mother just started using “LOL” in text messages. Sentences like, “Why’d you like that girl’s photo?” and “Why’d you leave a heart emoji under his pic?” actually exist nowadays, and questions like these and others are leading to arguments and breakups. Not acknowledging relationship statuses and coming up short when it comes to Instagram couple photos complete with mushy captions and loads of hearts, are crimes in today’s love languages, and are looked at as legitimate reasons for nixing a budding (or even long-term) relationship.
