Ladies, don't let your men take love advice from Ashton Kutcher. Not only will they be expecting threesomes, but they'll also think that tweeting is as much of a romantic gesture as sending you flowers to work.
Ashton said in a recent interview, "A lot of times my wife and I sit across from each other and tweet … it's the same reason you send roses to a woman at work. Sometimes people like to be adored in public."
You know, I bet Facebook poking wars spark actual fights in their household, too.
Maybe I'm just old-fashioned but, nooo, that is not the same. Not even close. Sending a sexy message out into the virtual world with my Twitter handle on it is not what I would consider a way to show affection. Sure it's cute, especially if you're still in high school, but give me a bouquet of flowers over a tweet any day. Or maybe do some housework. Or cook dinner for once. But a friggin' tweet? You gotta be kidding me.
I get that in today's tech-filled world, tweeting could be considered the same as any ol' PDA -- holding hands, quick kisses on the cheek -- but with the capability of being done even if you're miles apart (or in Ashton and Demi's case, sitting on the couch together, which I truly find odd). But, just like many other interactions that have been altered because of our obsession with the online world, these virtual flirtations lack sincerity. Is this the modern day romance? If so, shoot me now.
What do you think about Ashton's claim to tweeting being romantic? Which would you rather have? A Twitter mention or a bouquet of flowers?
