Social media has become a huge part of our daily lives.

Social media can be great for connecting with friends and family and sharing everything from our cute coffee art to the adventures we take across the world!

Social media is one of the biggest forms of entertainment in our daily lives, which is why it can be tough to discuss and set boundaries around. 

Because of the huge influence social media has on us, we can feel a lot of pressure to constantly update everyone about our lives - and this includes our relationships. You might always be wanting to post pictures of your partner, writing about your relationship on your profile, or sharing intimate details about your life together. While it may seem like a way to show your love and affection, it can also put a lot of pressure on your partner.

It's important to remember that social media - especially relationship/couples content - is a highlight reel of someone’s life or relationship! It's so tempting to want to compare your relationship to others. Seeing these seemingly perfect relationships can lead to insecurity or jealousy within your own relationship - and can be super harmful to both you and your partner. 

Social media can also negatively affect your level of trust with your partner. There are endless platforms to engage with online and it's important to discuss your comfort level with your partner's activity on adult websites or platforms alike. It's also important to discuss how you both interact with others online - the type or amount of content you consume on platforms like Instagram and TikTok can be just as harmful. It can be really damaging to your own self-perception and self-esteem if you're constantly seeing your partner obsessing over models or revealing photos on Instagram!

To avoid these issues, it's crucial to set boundaries on social media in your relationship. This can include agreeing on what types of information you are comfortable sharing about your relationship, setting limits on how often you post about your partner or your relationship, and being mindful of the types of posts you like and comment on.

It's so necessary to have open and honest conversations with your partner about your feelings and concerns when it comes to social media. For example, if you are feeling insecure about your relationship because of something you saw on social media, or with your partner's behavior online - it's important to talk to your partner about it rather than keeping it to yourself.

In addition, it's important to set boundaries for yourself as well. Take regular breaks from social media and make sure you're not spending all your time scrolling through your feed. Instead, focus on spending quality time with your partner and engaging in activities that don't involve social media.

Ultimately, setting boundaries on social media in your relationship is about finding a balance between staying connected and sharing your life with others while maintaining your privacy and ensuring you are both comfortable with each other’s behavior and activities online. By being open and honest with your partner, setting boundaries for yourself, and being mindful of the impact social media can have on your relationship, you can use social media in a way that is beneficial rather than harmful!
