Public Relationships “Yay or Nay”

People are always referring to social media as the root cause of many relationships ending. Having that public relationship, instead of it being a   joyous moment is celebrated with hate and animosity from those “followers”.

Rumors begin, lies surface and another relationship that was publicized has been seized. Relationships are meant to share, not be a secret. Why does everything seem to go wrong when it is shared?


With Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, tumblr etc, people must realize those aren’t to blame, it was created by us for us. Since it is a tool, used to share those special moments and stay in connect with friends, why do we have to turn it negative. One should be able to post a million pictures with their loved one and whoever doesn’t appreciate it should simply unfollow. Not that easy. Instead viewers are filled with the feeling of annoyance, “Why can’t that be me?”.

 The word relationship has lost its meaning. The new generation of the 2000’s want the look of the relationship without playing the part. Things have become jaded by playing a role behind a screen. “At” someone so others think you’re more with that person than in reality. Post a picture with a snazzy caption, your followers believe the subliminal message being portrayed. Meet someone yesterday, and for the “gram” post a picture with them now it has become official. It really becomes petty when your profile has nothing of pictures with this person. Within a month’s span those, pictures are deleted and filled with someone else. Is that really love or a role?

Not all we see are lies. There are actually those genuine couples, which love sharing their happy moments with the world. Relationships are a commitment, and should be about being with another person. Is it wrong to want what everyone else seems to have? Do we have to limit what we share? Keeping a relationship between just those involved, seem to be the healthier, lengthier and successful relationships. It’s understood they’re in it for them, not the world.
