Is social media ruining your relationship?
In this day and age we are all using social media to measure our success and to rate people’s lives and relationships. Millenials who constantly post their relationships online are more likely to breakup because of putting themselves out there. Privacy is such a sacred thing in any relationship and should not be taken for granted. Whether you realize it or not, here’s how social media is ruining your relationship.
1. You always seek validation in the online space
When you’re in a relationship that you keep posting online you end up seeking validation by the number of likes you keep getting online. You find yourself wanting to be acknowledged as a couple all the time and this becomes a toxic cycle.
2. You stalk your other half and it creates arguments
Ever found yourself stalking your other half online? You keep checking to see if him or her liked their exes pictures? You get upset if they don’t like your photos or they didn’t comment? Some people who have been in long lasting relationships claimed that it helped that they didn’t follow each other on social media.
3. You measure your love by how often your spouse posts you
Before you know it you get upset if your other half never posts you on social media again adding unnecessary pressure on your relationship which then becomes toxic.
4. When you’re together you probably spend more time on social media than with each other
We understand that in this day and age it is almost impossible to live without social media. However, when you’re with your partner it is important to be present rather than ignoring the other person rather than ignoring him/her for online friends.
