Honestly, how boring does your timeline look with cheesy posts and ‘Feeling loved with…’ posts from friends on your friend list? What we might not realise is, at times we do the same, and perhaps go a little overboard with it. Forget social media, say you meet a friend and you two go to a café for a cup of coffee. As the two of you sip on your cappuccino, your friend starts with how his or her partner pampered them; how they took them to the restaurant in downtown; how they got them expensive gifts; how they planned a romantic holiday. While you are all into it in the beginning you soon tend to get bored. A little while later you start wondering if he or she is telling these to brag; to make you feel jealous; or simply seeking acceptance from you. The story is the same even if the platform is of social media.
Less Time On Social Media Means More Time Together

This is a fact, no matter how much one tries defending it. Spending time on social media means you and your partner have less time in real life. If both or either of you are busy in the virtual world, there is hardly time for you two to go out together, enjoy a dinner or movie or some quality time with one another.
Online Validation Should Not Be A Benchmark For Your Happiness
Researches have shown that people posting too much about their relationship status on social media are actually looking for online validation from their friends, acquaintances, and colleagues. This shod not be the yard stick to measure the happiness quotient of your partner and you in the relationship. Being contended and confident about your relationship actually helps creating a stronger bond with your partner.
Posts Do Not Have To Be Proofs Of Your Happy Relationship
Happy couple know they are happy from within. They do not need to post about their relationship status every single house to prove their happiness. There is no documentation to validate the happiness of your partner and you in your relationship.
Every couple have good time and bad, but of course they want to show the world only the best parts of it. Happy couples on the other hand post less about their relationship on social media and get busy in making memories themselves.
