Yes Facebook is romantic: Why you're more likely to sleep with someone who FB messages you
Yes, Facebook is romantic. There are now statistics to prove this. A finding for those looking for a little action before Valentine’s Day: sending a lady some Facebook and text messages will make her more likely to sleep with you. 40% more likely in fact. It’s true, Jezebel said it.
The poll by Men’s Health found that texting or instant messaging people had a big impact on real-life relationships. A psychologist gave two possible reasons: 1) texting built up anticipation before meetings, making them more titillating, 2) texting someone more makes it feel like you’ve spent more time together. You feel like you know them better and for longer.
Just remember though – Facebook is a double-edged sword… it can cause break-ups as well as get-togethers as Laura wrote this morning in Facebook Blamed For Ruining Marriages.
We don’t know whether guys feel the same way about facebook messages and texts. Do you gentlemen? Let us know….
