In this modern age, social media has made such a huge impact in our life that we became so attached to it. So glued that it has become a necessity. Through social media, we get a glimpse of someone’s life. We remain updated through statuses, tweets, and posts. With a simple status update, everyone knows what’s happening to us. Communicating with others also became faster, more immediate, without the need for face-to-face interaction.
Somehow, social media is a double-edged sword, especially in romantic relationships. We often boast about our relationship status online, a way to show how proud we are about our boyfriend/girlfriend, a way to announce to the world how much we love them. Yes, one status update may generate likes, comments and reactions from friends and family but by sharing everything online, we are allowing others to meddle with our personal life.
Their love story became social media dependent that it has become more sparkling online than in real life. She started posting her feelings without letting her boyfriend know and allowed others get into their private life. Eventually, their relationship started going downhill.
Sure, its a wonderful thing being able to post the beauty and joy of a relationship. But some things must be kept private. Isn’t it nice to have a healthy relationship that we can keep to ourselves? Talk with your partner face-to-face and refrain from letting tags, tweets, and status updates destroy your relationship.
