If you want your relationship to last, then I suggest that you keep your love life off the internet. Not everyone is going to be happy for you, yeah some may act like they are, but inside they’re wishing your happy relationship will fall apart.

Relationships can be a wonderful thing. When you have that companion that you can tell anything and everything to, and not be judged, that’s one of the best feelings in the world. However, just because you’re in a great relationship doesn’t mean to go about posting EVERYTHING  about you and your “boo” via social media.

If you want your relationship to last, then I suggest that you keep your love life off the internet. Not everyone is going to be happy for you, yeah some may act like they are, but inside they’re wishing your happy relationship will fall apart. The age group that falls into this is sadly, the new generation of young adults between the ages of 16-35. There are a few tips of what you do on Facebook, that can damage your relationship.

1. Keep what you do behind closed doors where they belong, BEHIND CLOSED DOORS.

It’s called behind closed doors for a reason. When you air out personal stuff about your love life, it’s embarrassing to your mate. Think about how your mate will feel. Just because you don’t mind being judged, your mate may not want to be judged in that light. And besides, others don’t want to hear about what you and your partner did last night. They may egg you on in front of your face, but once you turn your back, TRUST they will be talking about you…in a negative way.

2. Letting your friends in your business.

Putting up advice status on Facebook about your life without consulting in your mate first is a big no-no! If you have a problem with your mate, confront him or her first. Don’t go putting them on blast on the internet because most likely you’re going to get negative feedback saying that you should leave him or her, etc. Even if the issue is small, leave it off the internet. Period.

3. Don’t post “sexy” photos of yourself.

There’s just some photos that don’t need to be on the internet. And if you took a rated-PG 13 or rated R picture with you mate, leave that off Facebook or just don’t take them at all, if you don’t want it to end up on Facebook. Let’s keep the photos PG on Facebook.

4. Tweeting your every move.

Do you really have to Tweet or check in every time you go somewhere? This can get you in trouble if you’re messing around. You tell your mate you’re going one place, but you check into or tweet that you’re someplace else. Don’t get yourself caught up.

5. The friend foul.

Allowing a friend to tag you in a Facebook photo where you’re clearly flirting with someone else.

6. Keeping in contact with your ex.

An ex is an ex for a reason. It’s okay to be friends with each other, but all that writing on each other’s walls and hanging out will get you caught up. If new boo will get furious and wonder why you got with him or her if you cant leave your ex alone.

7. Don’t play games.

You get mad your boo, so you delete them from your profile or you block them.  This shows signs of immaturity and if you keep doing this every time the two of you get an argument then it’s not going to last.

8. Subliminal messages.

Don’t use hints to try to get something across to your boo. Say what you mean, don’t leave him or her guessing because then they are going to think you’re sneaking around to where they can’t trust you.
