Believe it or not, a lot of relationships found their downfalls because of social media. And it’s a sad fact that it has devoured a portion of your reality, making it difficult and unnatural for you to stay grounded. That’s why it’s best to always find the balance between social media and your relationship! Read a few tips from us to keep your life in cyberspace and reality in check to continue nurturing a good relationship with your partner.
Quality time is the moment you give your undivided attention to your partner, not for you to constantly check social media updates on your phone. It can be annoying for your partner to see you always checking your phone even when you just take a little peek. You’ll look more interested hanging out with your friends in social media rather than spending time with someone you love. Hide your phone away when you’re with him/her. A decent human being would know that it’s just plain disrespectful to keep on looking at your phone and not just to your partner, but to everyone else when you are with them.
I’m pretty sure you are familiar with the privacy settings of your relationship in Facebook. You can publicize your relationship in Facebook and indicate in your profile that you are in a relationship with someone. This is popularly known as “Facebook official”. The truth is that this thing shouldn’t even matter for couples as long as they have full trust in each other. But, what’s funny is that a lot also take this seriously. If you are in a relationship, but indicated in your profile that you’re single, you might not like how your partner will react to this. Also, make a mutual decision if you want to keep your relationship private. It’s best for the both of you to talk about the privacy/transparency of your relationship in the social media sphere.
Social Media Activities
It’s very easy to see your activities in social media. There are a lot of things that might tick your partner off most especially if he/she is the jealous type. Trust issues can arise from simple comments and likes that you do to the pictures and status of your ex (or other people). It doesn’t take too much of your time to remove anything related to your past relationships. Leave the past behind and delete any picture or conversations you had with your ex. Again, communication is the key when it comes to this. Talk to your partner if he/she has issues about this.
