How Social Media Can Ruin Your Relationship
Figuring out how to use social media to better your business is no easy task, but learning to use it while still keeping your dating life in tact? Even harder. It’s no secret that social media can ruin your relationship, but if you want to maintain what you’ve got, a break up might be in order. And we’re not talking about one with your partner.
You’re Always Distracted: You know what isn’t fun when you’re out on a date? When your partner’s glued to their phone! It’s not possible to have a conversation, observe the environment, or even take in the fact that you’re with the one you love if your hands are constantly texting, tweeting and Instagramming. If you want to keep things happy at home then put the phone away, please?
Whether you consider yourself a jealous person or not, it’s never easy when you see that someone of the opposite sex has added your partner to the social network. Questions about who the person is, how they met, when they’ll talk and a million other crazy things start creeping into your thoughts – and probably into a relationship conversation that’s bound to be terrible.
Missing the Moment
Enjoying the moment with your lover doesn’t mean photographing and filtering every single second you have together – it’s about BEING there. Instead of taking an Instagram of your meal, why not talk about how delicious it looks? Forget tweeting about the festival, dance with your sweetie to the live music! Stop and take it all in… without any social media.
