Social networks present great opportunities for professionals to publicly recognize successes of parties in the relationship. This increases that partys sense of belonging, self-worth and security, in turn, makes them more comfortable and more likely to invest in your relationship.
Better understanding: Social media profiles often act as a snapshot of a persons personality. They display a persons likes, dislikes, social circle, opinions, views, and habits. This can be convenient. It can help new friends decide if they would like to enter into a relationship with the other person.
Social media tends to change your relationship styles in many ways. It allows you to connect with more people in very little time. It eases out the level of intimacy that you might share with people online. It also makes you more vulnerable to other peoples behaviours, attitudes and beliefs.
Suspicious behavior and jealousy: Social media provides easy access for a suspicious spouse to monitor their partners activity and interactions. And on the other hand, it can be used as a place for people to hide relationships or secrets. Both can lead to more jealousy and mistrust.
While social media might not ruin relationships, it can create problems if you and your partner lean on these alternative modes of communication. “You need to be able to see the look in someones eye—their micro-expressions—the tone of their voice, and you cant do that on social media,” says Shore.
Is texting another person cheating?
And let us clarify: We dont mean sending off a text to a member of the sex (or sexes) youre attracted to and asking how theyre doing. We mean full-on flirting—or more. Tech is a big part of our bonding experience with our S.O., which is why texting another person can be considered emotional cheating.
