'My boyfriend knows more about me'

Published: Nov 21, 2012, 07:00 IST | Dear Diana |

Dear Diana, I'm a 24-year-old software professional and I've been going strong with a guy I met on social media recently.

We’ve been chatting for more than six months now. We both keep confessing to each other that we are in love. However, I don’t know much about him but with the way things are, he knows more about me. He’s quite sensitive when I try to get more info out of him about his family and background. To avoid souring this otherwise pleasant relationship, I try not to dwell into his history. Since I’m new to this whole social networking sites thing, am I doing it right? Should I press him and reveal stuff about him the way I keep him updated about myself.

Dear Mandodari,
Of course you should find out information about his background. The next time he asks you a question, casually ask him the same about him. Being on social media, there is no personal interaction so things need not be exactly what meets the eye. Gradually ask him about his likes, dislikes and his family members. If he evades replies, things are amiss, then you should be wary and cautious. In a relationship both should respect each other. In your case your guy appears to have an upperhand.
