Question from Jenny T.: I have a lifestyle blog where I constantly post updates about my friendships, favorite fashion, recipes, and occasionally my love life. I started dating a new guy about two weeks ago. Can I blog about our dates and how I feel about him, or is it too soon to share those details about our relationship?

Dating Advice from Our Relationship Experts

Suzanne K. Oshima, Matchmaker: One sure fire way to make a guy disappear without a trace is to start blogging about your dates and how you feel about him when you’re just two weeks into dating. It doesn’t matter if you don’t use his real name, no man wants to feel like everything he does or says on a date will be exposed for the whole world to see.

When you launched your lifestyle blog, you signed on to blog about your personal life and everything that goes on with it. But he didn’t sign on to have his personal life exposed too. So, my suggestion is for you to cool it with TMI about your relationship and love life on your blog, otherwise you won’t have any dates to blog about.

Paige Wyatt, Reality Star: Sharing intimate details about your relationship and love life with a new guy should be more discrete than cooking tips or fashion advice. Posting details about dates can make a guy uncomfortable, especially early in the dating process. Guys tend to keep their romantic lives to themselves, because they don’t have the desire to share details and experiences like women do.

Typically they wouldn’t mind you chatting with your girlfriends about your relationship, but posting things about the dates online can feel invasive to guys. This can be especially true if they learn how you feel about the dates or relationship by reading it online instead of you sharing it with them personally. It would be appropriate to post things less intimate, such as “great date night restaurants”, or “fun date night outfits”, but keep the personal details about your new relationship close.

Robert Manni, Guy’s Guy: Good writing requires guts and honesty, but in this case, I suggest a cautious approach. It’s one thing to look back and provide insights from lessons learned from past relationships. But providing readers blow-by-blow details after only two weeks creates unnecessary pressure on the writer, her guy, and their possibility of succeeding as a couple. Would you want your audience to know all the details of your latest love interest as it’s happening? I’d say, probably not.
