How can I get him to pay attention?

My fiancé is a computer nerd and I know for a fact he'd never hurt me or his son but why is it that he is ALWAYS, on facebook? He has like 6 girls on there but he rarely talks to them, but how can I get him to stay off Facebook for a while he's acting like a 16 year old girl that HAS to be on the Internet everyday! I just am trying to get him to pay attention to me and our son more how can I do that?

  • Okay. SO many people have facebook addictions, and your husband might be one of them. You may have to just say, "You are addicted to facebook. Let's take control."


    I think I actually have a CM addiction, as my husband has started making comments! LOL!

  • He should want to pay attention to you and your son. You probably can't make him do that.

  • While he's there, you're here. Maybe you both need to unplug for a while and go on a date.

  • Use face book to your advantage by flirting with him and making dates with him.You can also post outing that you wish to attend as a family on your face book page. Like your local zoo or children's museum. He will get the hint. GL

  • You could always disable the internet or set up a network password on the comp so he can't get on..
    Or you could talk to him and tell him how you feel and set up some days/activities that are technology free (i.e turn off all tech devices)

  • Talk to him and let him know how you are feeling, if that don't work than I would lock up that computer!
