Is Facebook Bad for Your Sex Life?
5 Ways to Keep Your Relationship Close and Passion Alive

A helpful guide when you’re about to post about your partner on Facebook is this... “Only post what you would be comfortable saying to your partner’s face.” Find the courage to talk face-to-face with your partner about what is bugging you and do so in a way that allows you to be honest and keep your connection strong.

#5: Recognize when your Facebook time overshadows together time.

Let’s say that you never flirt with others while on Facebook and you’re always kind and respectful of your partner in posts and comments. Even so, Facebook could be a big reason why you and your partner are having trouble in and out of the bedroom.

If you’re online and on Facebook more than you are sharing meaningful connecting time with your partner, this is going to drag your relationship down and take you two apart.

Pay attention to how you use your time-- especially your free time. Do you turn on the computer to “veg out” after a long day at work? Do you turn first to Facebook and second (or last) to your partner for conversation and connection?

If so, make a change.

Make sure that you’re spending at least 5 minutes of undistracted and focused time with your partner each and every day. Get creative! Know that this together time doesn’t always have to be “serious.” It can be fun, silly, casual and also flirty and sexy.

When you make your relationship a priority above Facebook, it will show in all the best ways!
