Here’s Why The Happiest Couples Post Less On Social Media

Whether we like or not, we live in the age of social media.

We live in an age where if we like someone, we add them to Facebook and creep them specifically to see what their social media self is like.

And because we do this, we know people (like parents, crushes, and employers) do this to us, too.

And so, we also live in an age where people feel a strong passion to post about their lives online. This is how they represent themselves. This is how they share their lovely and wonderful and filtered lives—should anyone be watching. For many people, an empty feed feels (and looks) like an empty life. What happens then is you find people posting pics of everything and anything: food, pets, projects, persons.

For the most part, this is no big deal. This is how people stay connected and share their lives with people.

However, when it comes to sharing the most intimate details of our life, like our relationships, could sharing too much be a sign that’s something’s actually wrong? Read on to find out.

There Are A Lot Of Reasons For This. Let’s Start With The Fact That When You Are Really Happy, You Are Really Engaged In The Moment. You’re Not Thinking About Posting, You’re Thinking About The Present Moment.


You’re experiencing the happiness instead of trying to capture it for others to compare their happiness to. This isn’t to say people post with the intent to make others feel bad, but rather, they post to make themselves feel better. If your feed is full of you and your partner smiling, laughing, and doing everything together, how could you possibly feel insecure? Isn’t this what #goals is? Short answer: no, it’s not. #Goals is living life together, not posting about life together.

But There’s No Denying There Is A Pressure To Post… And To Compare.


When your bestie posts a pic of the flowers her BF brought home, this sets something off inside. Even if you know the two have been fighting or he’s never really around, this leads you to think that you deserve flowers too. What a good guy. She’s so lucky. Why don’t I ever get flowers?
