Alright, let’s get right to it!
Does social media have an effect upon your relationship?
Sure it does!
Let me qualify that response. It does … particularly when you use it obsessively wrong.
All types of hook-ups occur from those “winks,” “likes,” and friend requests! You betta believe it baby!
Infidelity, cheating, jealous rages, fights, breakups, and divorces have resulted from flagrant uses/abuses on Facebook, Instagram, and other social media accounts.
According to research, less matured relationships (under 3 years) take the biggest hits.
Here are some steps to take to prevent social media from ruining your relationship:
1. Stop being single online and in an actual relationship in real life.
2. Be cautious with “friending” exes.
3. Don’t get caught up in the hype because Facebook friends and other social media groupies give you much needed attention.
4. Stop it … with sneaky “stuff.”
Be open with your mate. If it looks like you’re hiding something, you probably are.
5. Have some limitations regarding your posts.
When your cyber friends are gone, your mate will still be there … hopefully.
So if you get caught red handed, don’t blame Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter for the fallouts.
Why?
You are at fault.
Here’s how!
You took the photo with the girlfriend that your wife saw on Facebook.
It was your provocative comments that you placed on your page for all to view.
You crossed the line.
You put your business in the streets.
Your fingers did the clicking!
You publicized your infidelity digitally.
Place the blame where it belongs!
YOU!
It was you!
