Is social media ruining your relationship(s)?
Hey darlings, I decided to do a chit chat post that I’ve promised since forEVER so here goes.
I was having this conversation with a friend earlier and he goes “SOCIAL MEDIA IS THE DEVIL OF RELATIONSHIPS”, I laughed so hard with the seriousness in his voice. He shared reasons why he has this belief and I totally agree with him. I know to each his own but there’s total truth in what he said.
He is of the opinion that not everyone needs to know who you’re getting with per time; gave an instance where two people were in a relationship and the girlfriend puts pictures of them both on Instagram and gets comments like “couple goals” etc. Now that they’ve broken up, she can’t delete those pictures till she finds another boyfriend to “showcase” because prying eyes of the media both frenemies and friends will bombard her with a million and one questions.
The truth is if you get into a relationship and you become very public about it; Instagram pictures and Snapchat videos, we, the public, deserve a long letter of explanation as to why you lot broke up, we were in the relationship too!
I’m of the notion that whatever is private should be private because I hate to jinx stuff so when I become super public with my relationship I’m just calling the public to come see what’s happening in my life, the good and bad.
I love my private life just private. We all know people we can check their Instagram pages just to see if they’re still in that relationship, if the pictures have been deleted, we then know they’ve broken up. Why will you like people to monitor you like that?
On the flip side however, I know a couple that were quite public about their relationship and today they’re engaged to be married, kudos!
In the end it all depends on what works for you, do you!
What do you think? Are you all for showing off your significant other on social media all the time or you keep it private or you show off once in a while?
Let’s get chatty in the comments!
