Those Couples You Hate On Facebook Probably Hate Each Other Too
We all know that one couple.
The one that dominates your Insta feed with nauseating selfies whenever they're together. The one that clogs up your Facebook TL with neverending updates on their everlasting love. You know, the one with the matching face tattoos, proudly announcing their pet names to the world.
Yes, you know Bumpty and Snugglekins, alright. You don't only know them, you hate them... with a passion.
But, according to Sexologist Nikki Goldstein, odds are they hate each other as well.
"Often it’s the people who post the most who are seeking validation for their relationship from other people on social media."
"The likes and comments can be so validating that when someone is really struggling, that’s where they get their up from – not the person making the gesture, but what other people will say about it."
So, basically, these people might be so unfulfilled in their relationship that they look for love outside of it.
BUT WAIT, I hear you cry, WHAT IF THEY'RE JUST ACTUALLY HAPPY AND WANNA SHOW THE WORLD HOW HAPPY THEY ARE!? I don't know what to tell you, a sexologist has said these words, so they must be true you know*?
It. Must. Be. True.
*Seriously, do and post whatever the fuck you want, but if you're in an unhappy relationship and you're looking for likes in place of love, you won't find it. Get the fuck out. Do some self-care and self-discovery. Be the SSBW/SSBM you want to see in the world. Slay.
