Do Displays of Affection on Social Media Reflect a Happy Relationship?
Now consider the flamboyant personality-type who likes to Instagram, tweet and change their status at three-second intervals. Twitter users have often said that it’s not official ’til you mention your partner on the trendy worldwide chatroom, while others have indicated that making your beau another tagged individual in your F-Book profile photo is a sign of commitment bliss. In reality, letting your friends and followers know every detail diminishes the privacy that often strengthens the intimacy. It then becomes a public caucus and makes the relationship more than just a two-party affair.
If you’re a moderate poster child on all social platforms, then the occasional web display of public affection is welcome. Bombarding your spectators and stalkers with your boo only creates a loss of online identity and dignity of oneself. Tweeting the occasional inside joke with your beau or referring to them by a secret name that doesn’t bring feelings of nausea are fair game.
Go on ahead and ‘gram your matching Jordans and initial earrings à la KimYe, but please continue to keep the mushy to a minimum.
