Social Snacking

By Truth About Deception

If you are hungry, you probably snack.

Feeling lonely and isolated, why not engage in “social snacking?”

People, who feel the need for closeness (probably anxiously attached individuals), are most likely to snack in a social, symbolic way.

What does “social snacking” involve?

  • Love letters
  • Text messages
  • Photos
  • Facebook Postings
  • Constantly glancing at your wedding ring
