In this modern age, social media has made such a huge impact in our life that we became so attached to it. So glued that it has become a necessity. Through social media, we get a glimpse of someone’s life. We remain updated through statuses, tweets, and posts. With a simple status update, everyone knows what’s happening to us. Communicating with others also became faster, more immediate, without the need for face-to-face interaction.
Somehow, social media is a double-edged sword, especially in romantic relationships. We often boast about our relationship status online, one way to show how proud we are about our boyfriend/girlfriend, a way to announce to the world how much we love them. Yes, one status update may generate likes, comments, and reactions from friends and family but by sharing everything online, we are allowing others to meddle with our personal life.
