If a person is so happy with their relationship, why do they feel the need to continually tell the whole world that they are happy? Quit trying to convince us, or better yet, quit trying to convince yourself. It really annoys me when I see these “couples” who are constantly posting insignificant things all over these useless social networks that people invest all their precious time on. I know I speak for others when I say that it does not make us envy you; it makes us want to punch you. Nobody needs a play-by-play of every “cute” date that you go on with your SO. Just stop. You aren’t fooling anyone (except maybe yourself). And then you have the nerve to judge other people for engaging in the exact same behavior as you? Come. On.
It doesn’t help that these people are so in denial either. There is nothing wrong with being alone. Learn to be independent for once instead of just jumping into a relationship with the first man or woman that crosses your path and attends to your every need.
I did not know that being in love was defined by the amount of gifts or favors that one receives from their SO. Sure those things are part of it in some ways, but if you are evaluating the depth and strength of your relationship based on how many Starbucks drinks or clothes your SO buys you, there’s a problem.
Love is something you feel, something other people can see without you telling them that it’s there. It’s in your gaze, in your smile, in your body language. I hate how people throw that word around like it’s some kind of play toy. Of course, love comes in many shapes and colors and sizes, but it still bothers me when people claim something that is not there. It seems kind of absurd to say that two people are not in love even though their millions of IG photos and Facebook posts would tell you otherwise, but people definitely abuse it. Especially when those same people were (very) recently happily in love in a relationship prior to their current one. It doesn’t make sense to me. No one falls in (or out of) love that easily or quickly.
I’m not saying people should hide their relationships from everyone, the world would just be a better place if they kept their posts (and talk) to a minimum. It only makes them look pathetic, ignorant and needy, so who needs it? Don’t make the rest of us look bad.
