There's a Reason Why You Think You Need To Post All Those Happy Couple Selfies Online, And You Won't Like It

Nowadays, most people share everything they do on social media. What they eat. What their outfit looks like. Who they hang out with. Honestly, everything. And that also goes for clingy couples. Do they really need the whole world to know everything they’re doing? Here are some of the reasons why we believe happy couples don’t feel the need to brag about their relationship online.

DON’T KISS AND TELL

Happy couples enjoy the here and now so much, they don’t really see the point in proving it to the world. They’re so focused on enjoying the moment, social media is the last thing on their minds—of course they still share the occasional Instagram photo.

Posting pictures of #MyMan or #Bae could reveal a weakness in personality that’s linked with jealousy and possessiveness. You sure those hashtags aren’t an indirect message to someone you feel threatened by to steal your man?

Posting photos, updating statuses, tweeting or creating Instagram stories should be considered a side job. Happy couples like to spend their time actually living their moments; they don’t waste time with online distractions.

OUT OF FOCUS

Unhappy couples not only post more often on social media, but they also spend countless hours to check who liked their photo or status. Happy couples just focus on being with and making each other happier.

Happy couples don’t constantly compare themselves with others on social media. What matters is the relationship itself: how it makes us feel and how we experience it with our partner.

Happy couples are never in search of a couple popularity on social media. What matters the most to them is how “popular” they are to each other—that’s all that counts.

All couples fight. Happy couples just don’t post about it on social media. Doing that not only proves their relationship needs a ton of work, but it also doesn’t bring any kind of solution to whatever they’re fighting about.

I’M ONLINE WITH YOU

Is that the new “I love you”? Couples don’t get anything from constantly trying to prove they’re happy by posting everything online. That won’t validate their relationship or make them happier—and nobody is actually buying it either.

Couples that stay off the social radar are significantly happier than those who don’t. In fact, depression is highly linked to excessive social media use.

Happy couples don’t have any issues to mask. Their relationship is so healthy that there are no insecurities to hide from others behind a happy-looking selfie kiss—those should be banned, BTW.
