What is up with

1) Pinterest profile pictures with the husband in the shot
2) Couples who share an email address

I find both really creepy.

What about couples that share a facebook profile?

I mean, that's not the sign of a deranged woman (or man I suppose) who doesn't trust her husband, is it?

HOW DARE THAT BITCH FROM YOUR HIGH SCHOOL 12 YEARS AGO WRITE ON YOUR WALL!!!

totally - its weird. dont share an email address! you need some privacy in your life.

I must be on Facebook too much. I want to click "like" on Lisa's comment. Perfect. I've seen it in action too.

Every time I see somebody with a shared Facebook I want to block them... are they so codependent they can't have their own identity? Drives me crazy!

I posted about this on Facebook ages ago.
Spells C O N T R O L.
Someone's dick is in a jar on a shelf.
Someone ain't allowed to wear anything more risqué than a Peter-Pan collar.
In the sake of efficiency, my ass.
That's what I think.

sounds like the tea party in action.

I always find it strange, too. In facebook, one never knows who is posting the status update. Is it the guy, or the gal? And shared email address? Please. I know one couple personally, and really don't like emailing my (female) friend. So I don't do it.

Ok so you don't like couples in a Pinterest profile but you don't even show your own face! Come on, Decorno!

I think they're just people who are techno-naive... who think the internet is like the telephone and so you should be able to get both of them at the same contact because they're mawwied.

I can tell you that Marcus Bachmann has a different email address from Michele.

I know several couples with that email arrangement. The internet is not that big a deal to them. For professional stuff they have their own addresses. Their social outlets are more old school than virtual. As for Pinterest, can't comment.

My pinterest pic is of me and my fiance simply because that was my facebook profile pic at the time and I opened up my pinterest account through facebook. Since then I have changed my facebook profile several times but never bothered changing pinterest because I never anticipated being judged as creepy and codependent.

Surprise!

I guess I should change it immediately so as not to offend the easily creeped out. Or you could always do the obvious and mature thing and unfollow me if my profile picture is so ridiculous to you. Maybe then you would be free to think about things that actually matter.

I have wondered this myself. One of my good friends does this and uses the same picture for facebook and pinterest. She does not share either account with her husband. I assume these are women who adore their husbands and like to show people how happy they are together. There are worse things in the world than that.

lindley said...

I completely agree with you. Creepy, brain-sharing, weird. And I have a great husband....but not in the frame w me or on my accounts. We are actually two different people.

Does this rule also apply to people with kids? Following this logic, everyone with a baby as their profile pic must be a lunatic as well. Or perhaps babies are exempt due to cuteness? Still, these women clearly have no identity if their profile pic contains another person.

If the kids are homely, Pinterest will ban them. Check the rules.

Not true. I see plenty of long-faced babies in their strapless tube top onesies and stretchy oversized flower headbands. Make them go away, the little strumpets!

hahahaha...long faced babies. Or babies that look like Meyer Lansky:

My mom and dad were married for 24 years and always maintained separate checking, that kind of set the tone for me.

also creeptastic: when parents post a photo of their infant as their profile photo on facefriend or what-not... that. kid. is. not. you.

"We are actually two different people" is my favorite.

His being the gmail account, one would assume.

"we're pregnant"

"um, no, the two of you are expecting a child together- congrats on that and everything, but until medical science can implant a viable egg in a dude's scrotum, only the woman with the ginormously distended belly is pregnant, k?"
