Media for Love

I heart media because it supports my relationships. I’m experiencing long-distance relationships and I have no idea what would I do if media didn’t exist at all. Because of FaceTime I can see his face every day (just to make sure he’s still alive); Telegram allows us to send text, voice and video messages briefly, even though we are busy at the moment; Instagram provides me with a fantastic opportunity to announce our relationships to the world (just a friendly reminder of me still dating him for the girls following his social media). Look at YouTube alone: we can watch movies simultaneously, pause and comment on what’s happening on our screens, like we did at home while eating pizza in our bed together. Every so often it leads to the deepest conversations I’ve ever had (and would never have if not for some random film). I’m so grateful to social media for shortening the distance in my long-distance relationships❤️
