Sometimes less really IS more.
When it comes to relationships regarding social media, this couldn't be more true. Nowadays people put WAY too much thought into which picture of their boyfriend or girlfriend they should post on Instagram for their #tbt and what the ultimate quote would be to go along with it.
If they put half as much thought into how they could ACTUALLY be bettering their relationship, they might not need that false sense of security.
It's easy to get lost in the sea of likes, favorites, re-tweets, and that feeling of accomplishment — making people believe that you are endlessly happy in your relationship, making them crave what you have. Isn't that a big part of it?
A boost to your ego that you have something everyone else wants — the perfect relationship. Except, there is no such thing as a perfect relationship, is there?
We all have our flaws, and no relationship goes smoothly 100% of the time. Everyone argues, fights, people make mistakes. But taking to Facebook and Twitter is NO way to solve any problems — at least not the right way.
Making snide posts about your partner online because you're upset with them will ALWAYS come back to bite you in the butt and getting angry with your significant other because they forgot to post on your FB wall for your birthday is downright criminal. I'd take a happy birthday and a hug in person over a Facebook post or tweet any day.
You may think posting about your lover online is cute and endearing. It's not. It's annoying.
Truth is, no one is envious of you. Instead, most people think you're so insecure that you need everyone to know that you guys are together and happy. But who are you really trying to convince?
Social media isn't just killing the relationships of people who don't know when to stop posting, it's also killing that of those who spend FAR too much time over-thinking every little thing they see online.
So what if your boyfriend liked that girl's profile picture? That doesn't mean he's hopping into bed with her. And who cares if your girlfriend doesn't post a #mcm on Mondays in honor of you, it doesn't mean she's got some other man crush.
Insecurity and relationship anxiety have become so prominent in today's society because we've got the world at our fingertips. Social media allows us to "connect" with anyone at any time, but is that necessarily a good thing?
Nothing creates trust issues like social media. If you have a hard time believing it, check out these quotes that will PROVE to you that social media can TOTALLY kill your relationship.
