Facebook could be spoiling your relationship. Analyse your usage. If you spend too much time on Facebook, log off now, before you wreck your relationship.
1. It cuts into your together-time.
People often browse Facebook in bed, before sleeping-time that was earlier allocated for relaxing and maybe cuddling with your partner. Watch where your time is going.
2. It makes you suspicious and demanding.
Facebook can harm relationships by making you wonder why your partner is spending so long on it, and what they’re doing. It fosters mistrust and suspicion.
3. It raises expectations.
Seeing other happy couples on Facebook do things for each other, makes you expect the same from your partner. It makes you compare your relationship to that of others, and see it fall short.
4. Boundaries on how much to share, can overlap.
You might be an effusive, extroverted sharer, but your partner might prefer to keep intimate details on the down low. What things to share, when and how much to share, can be major points of contention between couples.
5. Any addiction is bad, including Facebook addiction.
Too much of a good thing is bad, and Facebook isn’t even a good thing to begin with. When you have an addiction, it affects your family and loved ones too.
6. It increases jealousy.
Seeing your partner get chummy with other pals, or have fun without you can foster feelings of jealousy and resentment. Don’t fall into the Facebook trap.
7. Your Facebook bragging affects other relationships too.
When you are effusive about your relationship, it can cause jealousy in other couples. When you seem bitter about your relationship, it can make other couples rethink theirs. Either way, it’s not good.
8. It hides cheating effectively.
With everything being online, it has become much easier for people to cheat on their partners and not get caught. This, however, is detrimental to relationships.
