If you have seen happy couples, you might have noticed one thing about them, and that’s posting less on social media about their relationships. Social media can be annoying at times and it’s especially when you see couples bragging about their relationship and make their personal lives public. It’s even more annoying when it’s your best buddies and you have to deal with their posts that they make every other day.
But do you think love needs justification or some kind of online certification? I have seen a lot of happy couples who just stay away from social media and live their lives to fullest. ‘OMG, that’s so us, relationship quotes, sharing your pictures with your partner’, you won’t see this kind of post from a person who is truly happy with their relationship.
Top reasons why happy couples post less about their relationships on social media. Let’s take a look!
1. It’s a private matter
Couples always enjoyed the sort of privacy before social media revolution but today, it has become difficult. Happy couples know about having a good time and they don’t believe in showing others that they are having a good time. They enjoy each others time because they actually like being together and it’s not needed at all to show this off on social media.
2. Because social media is all about faking up
Have you seen couples posting their sad photos or when they are not having fun, or having a fight? People think that if you post the pictures of happy times, others will think that you are happy in your relationship. You are convincing others to convince yourself that you are happy.
3. Happy times always makes you tend to forget to take photos
If you can recall the happiest moments of your life, it’s always the moments that aren’t captured on camera. Happy times and presence of genuine joy, we often tend to forget to take photos. And for happy couples, taking photos is always considered as the last thing.
4. Telling people about your relationship will do nothing
The sign of a good relationship is an argument. If there is no argument in a relationship, it either means you both aren’t matured or don’t care enough. Making online posts after a small fight will do no good, you should talk to each other instead.
5. Posting too much implies that you are attention seeker
Happy couples know the difference between having a good time and showing that you are having a good time. Posting too much only means that you need likes and you are an attention seeker.
6. Happy couples don’t need to prove how happy they are
Genuinely happy couples don’t have to prove anything to the world. Most couples who post about their relationships always try to prove something or to make their Ex jealous or to prove others that ‘OMG, they are so happy’.
7. The social media statistics
According to a study, people who spend less time on social media are happier than those who spend most of their time online.
8. And this funny reason
I have seen a lot of guys who post their private pictures and it only implies that they are trying to prove that even they can have a girlfriend. It seems like even they don’t believe that they can have a girl.
9. Real thing that matters is being happy
You’ll get nothing from posting the evidence of how happy you are. The joy is to be found in being together, not in posting about being together.
10. Couples who post a lot about their relationships tend to be insecure
A survey was done on more than 100 couples. The researchers from Northwestern University found those who posted more frequently on social media about their partner actually feel insecure in their relationships.
Even unhappy couples don’t post much on social media and there are also some happy couples, who post their photos on a regular basis. However, the findings from professionals and research prove that a majority of couples who brag about their relationships online aren’t really that happy in reality.
