Social Media Bad Relationship Quotes

Is social media toxic for relationships? These social media and relationships quotes explain that posting everything online isn't always a good thing for your love life.

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.

You may think posting about your lover online is important, cute, or endearing. It's not. It's annoying. Social media isn't just killing the relationships of people who don't know when to stop posting, it's also killing that those who spend far too much time overthinking every little thing they see online.

How does social media affect real relationships? Taking to Facebook and Twitter is no way to solve any problems — at least not the right way. Getting angry with your significant other because they forgot to post on your FB wall for your birthday is downright criminal.

It's also easy to let social media fuel your relationship insecurities.

Insecurity and relationship anxiety has 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 social media and relationships quotes that will prove that social media can totally kill your relationship.
