Once upon a time, calling each others house line’s at midnight and writing letters was the oh-so sweet way to contact your loved one’s. Now, you can open your phone and track their every move. I will not lie, social media has driven me mad. I can openly admit, I have become the crazy girlfriend.
Jealousy: Have you ever asked yourself “why did he follow her?” or “why did she like his picture”, Instagram and Twitter are very transparent in the sense that you can see who everyone follows, who likes each others pictures etc. This creates such a strain on relationships that they usually are more likely to fail. Without the use of social media, I believe that relationships would focus less on jealousy and more on caring for the other individual.
Unfaithfulness: The use of social media and the influence it has on us, can lead one to unfaithfulness. It’s easier than ever to message someone you find attractive and maybe meet up with and keep it a secret. The temptation is there. I honestly doubt there would be as many situations where the boyfriend or girlfriend is lying about who they talk to or who they have feelings for, without the excessive use of social media.
Have you ever found yourself lurking some hotty’s profile and thinking “I could keep this lowkey?” whilst being in a relationship?
