It's Over

I have wrote previously about the difficulties that are experienced with relationships and social networking sites. I find social networking sites to be a distraction and more often than not add to the issues being experienced. With mobile technology people are permanently connected and finding it more difficult than ever to disconnect between their online and offline lives.

Celebrities aren't immune to this either as today Jennifer Aniston has reportedly ended her relationship with musician boyfriend John Mayer because he is obsessed with Twitter.The Telegraph has the following information on this story -
A source claimed Aniston decided Mayer was not committed enough to her and called time on their romance having found hourly updates on his Twitter page.

The source said: "John suddenly stopped calling her or returning her emails and when she would finally catch up with him, he'd say: 'I've been so busy with work. I'm sorry I haven't had time to call you back."
I can relate to this as my relationship has been effected numerous times by similar distractions. Finding the right balance with anything is always going to be difficult in any relationship. Thankfully our relationship is built from social networking, we met through MySpace and it was my partner that introduced me to Facebook. In turn I have expanded into social media and she has adopted many of the services although admittedly not as active as my usage.

We're aiming to find the right balance eventually but it's all over for Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer. I would like to ask her whether she would have ended the relationship if she were still with Brad Pitt and he was preferring to tweet than to respond to her? :)
