Pinay wife discovers secrets after ‘unfriending’ her husband online

Social media has changed the way people communicate. Messages are often ignored, for we know that friends and family can be reached online easily. Thanks to the Internet, people’s appreciation to the art of communication have diminished through time.

This was the case for Facebook user Nicole Joanne Meilat, who shared why she decided to ‘unfriend’ her husband on the social media platform.

Before, she would frequently tag her husband on things she thinks “useful and informative”. But to her dismay, her husband hardly read a single post.

“Even sweet wall post or tagged family photos, dedma siya. You know what hurt my feelings the most? Kapag sa post ng iba or sa non-sense na bagay kahit hindi siya nakatag pustahan makikita mo may comment siya #Coolkid,” Nicole wrote in a Facebook post.

“Feeling niya nakakairita yung mga tinatag ko sa kanya. (Which is true, ngayon ko lang narealize),” she added.

That’s when she decided to unfriend him. But it took her husband more than a week to realize they were no longer friends on the social media platform.

Nicole shared: “Since then unconsciously I stopped tagging him, I stopped seeing his post and lastly ‘di ko nakikita mga comment niya. Ang gaan sa feelings! And narealize ko sobrang unhealthy ng Social Media sa magpartner. Kailangan scripted dahil alam mong may ibang nakakabasa. Yung tipong pag nag ‘I love you’ ka, kailangan may mag ‘I love you too’. Ganon kastressful haha!”

When she unfriended her husband online, things began to change for the better. They now share stories personally most of the time.

“Ngayon na we are no longer connected sa social media. We started to have long conversation at home. Yung gusto niya i-tag sakin sinasabi na niya sakin personally. Kahit na nakatira kami in one roof at almost 24/7 magkasama meron paring mga bagay na hindi mo alam kaya mas nagkaron tuloy kami ng mga bagay na mapagkekwentuhan personally.

“To cut the story short, mas naging intimate yung relationship namin kasi parang may namimiss kami lagi sa isa’t isa kahit magkasama na kami sa iisang bubong,” she wrote in her Facebook post.

Indeed, technology has made communication easier but it comes with a high price, too. If we would let ourselves and our time be consumed by social media, it could disconnect us not only to the real world, but also to the people we hold dear.
