The Internet is full of fantasies about the perfect personal life, and social media massively demonstrates the cloudless relationships of happy couples. And it would not be a big deal if people did not take such fairy tales at face value and confuse them with reality

However, according to the website Pulse.ng, this happens all the time. As a result, couples, trying to imitate their idols, destroy strong ties.

Here are some tips on how to avoid such problems

Get rid of illusions

There's nothing wrong with wanting the sophisticated and lofty, but you should remember that real human relationships are a series of ups and downs, emotions and experiences.

Understand that the world of social media creates an unrealistic picture where people show only the highlights of their lives. And their problems, disagreements, moments of vulnerability are safely hidden from your eyes.

Avoid comparisons

Of course, there are couples who match what they write online about their relationship, but let's remember that people only show you the side they want to show you. In reality, things are much more complicated than they seem at first glance.

Take a break from social media

When we see an "ideal" couple on the Internet and start feeling lonely in our relationships, it is self-sabotage and a voluntary refusal to be happy.

To avoid this risk, set limits on your media platforms. And instead of monitoring the network in search of the next "fairy tale," go for an evening walk with your partner, do household chores, or call him or her just to chat if you are far from each other.

Believe me, this time alone, without the ubiquitous Internet, is vital for you.

Don't post everything in a row

Make it a rule that not everyone is interested in and needs to know what's going on between you and your partner.

Not only that, but people share intimate issues about their relationships on social media, things that should never leave the bedroom walls.

This is a big mistake, as personal experiences strengthen the bond between partners, create a sense of security and trust. Publishing them and making them public is unlikely to be beneficial, rather the opposite.

By keeping intimate moments private for each other, you confirm that your connection remains genuine and is not subject to the pressures of the digital world. In the end, what matters in a relationship is depth, not the number of "likes" or comments on posts.
