In different social media sites, you can always see posts of a happy love life of others. Different confession and destination photos here and there, just to prove everyone how much they love each other. Some would even have it almost every minute of posts just to remind and show everyone maybe, how happy they are to be in a relationship.
But Sexologist Nikki Goldstein just said it to be wrong and all lies as she said,
“Often it’s the people who post the most who are seeking validation for their relationship from other people on social media. The likes and comments can be so validating that when someone is really struggling, that’s where they get their up from – not the person making the gesture, but what other people will say about it.”
“Couples who appear the most love-up online are often making up for insecurities. By posting photos online, they are seeking approval from others, rather than enjoying their relationship.”
And Goldstein warns that it can also be an indicator that one partner is controlling and possessive. And according to Metro News, Previous research from Brunel University found that people who posted frequently about their romantic partner often had low self-esteem, according to the researchers, who surveyed 555 Facebook users.
There are really things that should be kept private, and one of those is your relationship. But we can’t also blame those who are showy enough to share to everyone their happy relationships.
