“Sometimes I wish social media wasn’t such a big factor in people’s relationships. Liking and posting the wrong thing shouldn’t be an issue”-@ThatgalCortt

Being in a committed relationship in today’s Twitter- Snapchat-Facebook addicted world is quite challenging. It’s a big task to hold on to your securities. Our young minds tend to wander off and it gets the best of us all the time. “Why isn’t he posting me?” “Who is the guy my girl keep liking pictures of?” It’s a lot to stress about, especially if you’re in a new relationship or have been cheated on in the past.

Cheating goes so far in relationships and they break your spirit, further messing up your trust and belief in loves possibilities. Social media is so powerful that people are literally creating paying careers from it. So the things that it could make happen in your relationship if you allow it are endless. I like to believe that social media can have as much of a positive effect as it would a negative one.

I talk about Twitter a lot because I’ve seen great things happen on there. There is love in the DM’s. On Twitter is where I discovered Black Love Day, where there were several different beautiful black couples happily in love and posting about it. They made me happy to have my king by my side. It can get really messy there. But Facebook seems to be where all of the drama starts and ends. Maybe you will get lucky and neither you or your partner will have a Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or Snapchat, but the likelihood of the that happening is rare.

Unless your partner is older and just not interested in it, then it’s just a “young people thing”. Just like with any situation in a relationship it’s pertinent to talk to your partner about theses type of things. Let them know if they bother you, if it’s important to you, if you even pay attention to it at all. If you find that your partner never post photos of you on any of their social sites, you may feel silly for asking why. But it’s necessary, what if they’re just private? You’d never know if you fail to ask. Things of that nature can lead to huge arguments and draw rifts in the love you all have built. So it can be a warning sign when your significant other doesn’t ever do that. If you want your partner to show more social media PDA, then simply communicate that to him or her.

There are certain warning signs that you must pay attention to. A picture says a thousand words. With that being said, a picture on social media that you don’t like can say even more. If you are constantly seeing your partner in compromising pictures via the Internet, it might be time to speak up. -(saraaltschule) Social media can truly make or break your union if it’s not strong enough to withstand all of the memes about what men should do and who women should be. Love is about building your own and making the rules as you go. Leave the internet on the devices y’all.

With Love,
