There was a time when writing your name and your partner’s name on MSN with a heart between them meant you were practically engaged.
Nowadays, things got trickier and couples now have to look into the politics of Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter to see whether they are official or not.
But, if you are among those couples that don’t post anything about your relationship publicly – don’t worry. Because, according to a study, couples who don’t make their relationship public are the happiest.
Don’t get me wrong, it is a normal thing to want to post a picture with your love on Facebook, there is nothing wrong with it. However, there is a correlation between how genuine content you are in the relationship and how often you post about it on social media. The reasons behind this are the following:
First, people who don’t post about their lives on social media are generally happier than those who post daily about what’s going on in their life. Plus, excessive use of social media is linked to depression because people start comparing themselves with others.
Second, not having a need to tell the world how happy you are in your relationships is a sign that you are truly happy in it that you are not even thinking about social media and taking selfies that you can post on Instagram.
However, this doesn’t mean that you have to keep your relationship secret. A study found that those who have updated their relationship status on Facebook were more committed than others who were still ‘single’ or didn’t have a relationship status at all on Facebook.
