LAURA'S LOVE LIFE ADVICE: Should You Ever Tweet About Your Relationships Like Emily Maynard & Kim Kardashian Do?

Some celebs just can’t stop tweeting their feelings. Is this detrimental to your love life?

Does TMI exist in the age of Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare? It doesn’t seem like it — especially when celebs like Kim Kardashian and The Bachelor‘s Emily Maynard are tweeting all about their love lives. But is talking about your personal on issues on Twitter a bad move, or does it indicate how much you’re in love?

There’s suspicion that Kim, 30, may have accidentally tweeted that she was engaged to pro basketball player boyfriend Kris Humphries (and then blamed it on him) after she tweeted that he was her “future husband” while Emily, 24, revealed that she was hanging out with fiance Brad Womack‘s former flame, Michelle Money. Brad, 38, recently tweeted that he and Emily were house-hunting and also hotly denied rumors that he and his lady were splitting. “Have no idea where breakup rumors come from…Em & I r GREAT. w r silent cause busy. Been house hunting..realizing how broke I actually am!!” he wrote March 30.

Brad seems to have wised up, however, and deleted his Twitter account. Did he perhaps realize he’s was oversharing things that should be private (which is fairly hard to do, considering he aired his relationship dirty laundry on a reality show).

Did he need to? Is tweeting bad for your love life?

I’d say so. In the same way that Facebook stalking and obsessing is unhealthy for you, so is tweeting. You don’t want everyone all up in your business. Perhaps you have an emotion that you feel like conveying in the heat of the moment, but you’re going to feel like a fool when you realize someone has actually read it — and that they might tell your boyfriend what you’ve said.

Let me clarify. Perhaps you wrote something seemingly harmless like, ‘I love my BF! He’s the best!’ However, you and your man may not necessarily have said the ‘L’ word yet, which could, in fact, scare him off.

Or, you’ve lied to him and said you were staying home, and then forget you told the fib and tweet what a great time you’re having out a nightclub. At the end of the day, what you tweet can come back to haunt you.

So I’d make like Brad, if he really has discontinued use of his Twitter account, that is. Not everyone needs to know what’s going on in your life all the time. Trust me, it will save you a lot of drama in the long run to just resist the urge…
