“Everybody wants to be a celebrity, which is why we have this phenomenon of social media, where nobody wants to be private. We all want to be seen.” – Marc Jacobs
Social media has become a place where we get in touch with our friends and other people. However, it has also become an important factor in how people handle and behave in their relationships.
Yes, it can be tempting to post anything for the sake of getting an instant gratification, but according to relationship experts, there are some things that you really should not post because it can cause problems in your relationship with your partner if you are not being careful.
Here are 7 such shouldn’ts:
1. Your sex life.
Yes, your sex life should be private. Not everyone likes to see what’s happening between you and your partner behind the sheets. Don’t talk openly about things that really should stay behind closed doors. Respect yours and your partner’s privacy.
2. Your arguments.
Never expose your fights publicly. It is embarrassing, and it gives people material for gossiping. You don’t want that. Also, never put down your significant other on social media. Because when the conflict is over, you’ll regret it. Don’t air your dirty laundry in public. Solve them like two adults, by discussing and compromising.
3. Pictures of your partner without their permission.
Yes, you, sneaking a picture of your partner where he looks funny may be cute to you, but don’t expose the picture publicly until your partner gives you permission. They may not find it that funny.
4. Mean jokes about your partner.
When you tell about a funny thing that your partner did in front of your closest circle of friends it may be hilarious and harmless. However, when you post about your partner’s screw-ups publicly on social media, then they can see that as a mean thing and you’ll end up hurting them and their ego in front of everyone.
5. Passive-aggressive complaints about your relationship.
If something makes you feel bad about your relationship, or you feel a dissatisfaction – you should speak to them and tell them honestly what’s bothering you instead of posting passive-aggressive comments on your social media accounts.
6. Validation – seeking posts.
Don’t post a picture of you two kissing when you are in the middle of an argument for the sake of getting validation and present a false picture of your relationship. If you are happy together – be. You don’t have to post it publicly only to brag about how happy you are. Enjoy your moments together and forget about your Instagram accounts.
7. Don’t post disparaging things about your partner’s ex.
Even if their ex is a total psycho and their relationship was a total failure, don’t comment about it in front of your partner. It will only make you insecure in their eyes. And never never talk trash about their ex with your girlfriends on social media. Leave the past in the past and enjoy your relationship.
