If You Desire a Strong Healthy Relationship Get Rid of Facebook ...

We’ve all witnessed the blossoming of a romantic relationship on Facebook. It usually starts out super sweet and progresses into borderline disgusting as your friend gushes on and on about her new partner and makes her new relationship Facebook official. Just as you think she found the one, you start seeing passive aggressive posts which seem to be directed at her partner. Then, her relationship status changes from “in a relationship with” to “it’s complicated,” and the bitching continues.

How many times have you observed a situation like that? It’s one thing to make your relationship “official” on Facebook and another to broadcast all the ups and downs to all of your 500+ friends and family. If you want a healthy relationship, Your Tango suggests keeping Facebook out of the picture. Public fights with your friends taking sides or trying to get a rise out of your partner with elusive posts is the opposite of healthy.

Even constantly reminding your friends and family about your partner every day is something we wouldn’t really do in real life, so why do we do it online? There’s nothing wrong with sharing your new relationship online, but be mindful of how much you share. Healthy couples can resolve issues without the opinions of others and don’t require an audience in order to express themselves. Keep the intimate details of your relationship private and you might find that instead of spending so much time on Facebook, you spend more time together.

My husband and I have a solid relationship but heres the thing we are not on each others facebook. I never share anything about him, ocasionally Ill share somethig funny he did or said thats it .. For one I have single friends and I dont want to rub it in their face secondly the more we keep quiey about the good things in our life the more they blossom 😊

I know of quite a few couples where, one of them is constantly posting profile pics of the two of them, updating date nights and also posting family days- but, the truth be told most of us know that their relationship is bordering on divorce. But, on the other end of the spectrum- there are others, who never mention their partners nor post pictures and they are coasting along smoothly. It's not always the case but, I see Facebook as a giant advertising campaign. Some people need to project or even sell a certain image. Not most- only some. :)

Am i the only human on earth not on Facebook??

I definitely keep my relationship out of Facebook. One of my relationship where going on 6 months and I still did not share my family found out 5 months later at my birthday when they met him and we had a good enough foundation. This article is very true it's healthy to keep it off Facebook keeps it more special, private and respects the relationship. I've learned this the hard way when I was 18 and dropping little status here and there about a guy that was no good ever since tho it was not obvious and I only put a relationship for a week tho it was longer I said never again first it was to spare embarrassment. Later on as I matured and looked at other couples it was to keep my relationship sacred, safe and respected.

My husband and I deleted our facebooks and we are happier without it :)

I've seen this on Facebook and it really bothered me. Happy couples don't post their photos every 5 mins, and unhappy do. Weird. I ended up deleting Facebook for good🙈

very true. i left facebook almost 6 years ago!
