For example, you are chatting with your bae on BBM and she takes a bit of time to reply. Some guys will proceed to WhatsApp to check her ‘last seen’. If her last seen was recent, the guy becomes angry and this may lead to an argument. This is why many ladies block their last seen. But, this should not be the case. The digital age is here to stay. The onus is on you to have a smooth relationship. Accordingly, here are ways to have a smooth relationship in this digital age:
