How Social Media Affects Dating

Relationships are never easy to manage, even the good ones. The fairy-tale that we’ve all seen on TV is not something you should ever hope to find in the real world. We’re not saying that you won’t find true happiness, we’re just letting you know that when you do find ‘the one’, it’ll require a lot of work. Social media has affected how we interact with one another over the years, needless to say, it has changed the dating game in a big way.

Is it Possible to Find True Love Online?

There was a time in which people would find the love of their life through a friend, family member, or colleague. However, that time has long since passed. Nowadays, people take to the internet to find love. We now have more choices than ever when it comes to deciding who’ll be the perfect mate for us. However, this comes with its own set of problems. Having more people to choose from doesn’t necessarily make things better or easier.

In fact, we believe that the abundance of choice has made it harder for people to connect. One of the things that’s apparent on dating websites is that people are always looking for the next best thing. Even if someone starts talking with someone they really like, if another person messages them and they appear to be more interesting, chances are they’ll drop whoever they were talking to previously and move on to the better option. Of course, the better option isn’t always what they imagine it to be, but this is the mentality that’s prevalent within the online dating community.

How Social Media Affects Your Self-Esteem

Most people would agree that social media is impacting negatively on our self-esteem, particularly that of young people. Altered images of ‘perfect’ models and famous people are in your face 24 hours a day, so we’re constantly comparing ourselves to other people. An impaired sense of self is damaging to the formation of strong relationships.

How Social Media Impacts Relationships

Social media addiction, like any other addiction, takes your attention away from your partner. So, instead of couples spending quality time together, they can often be seen checking their social media accounts when out in public. On social media, it’s easy and tempting interact with other people, interactions that may give way to new relationships. This is not intrinsically bad, but it can lead to people becoming jealous of their partners. This is particularly true if an individual is secretive about their online interactions. Interacting with so many people on a daily basis makes it much easier to form romantic bonds with people outside of your relationship. Although infidelity has always been a problem for couples, in a world that houses so much temptation, it can be difficult to resist if you’re always online. “It’s easy to blame technology for what we perceive to be a vast disconnect between people. We’re so wrapped up in social media, texting, online dating – in many ways, we’re addicted to our devices.”
