Social media is a great way to stay connected with friends, family, and the world around us.
But for couples, it can be a tricky thing. While posting photos and updates can be a fun way to share your relationship with others, it can also be a source of stress and unhappiness for couples.
A recent study found that couples who always post on social media are less happy than couples who don’t.
As a couple, I’ve been through my fair share of ups and downs, and I’ll be the first to admit that social media can be a source of stress. From comparing our relationship to others, to feeling the pressure to post perfect pictures and updates, it can be hard to navigate the world of social media as a couple.
The study, conducted by researchers at the University of Kansas, surveyed over 300 couples. The participants were asked questions about their relationships, as well as their social media habits.
The results showed that couples who always posted on social media were less happy than couples who didn’t post.
The researchers determined that couples who always post are more likely to compare their relationship to others. When you’re constantly seeing other couples’ happy moments and perfect pictures, it can be hard to not compare yourself. This can lead to feelings of jealousy and insecurity, which can be damaging to a relationship.

Another issue with always posting on social media is that it can put pressure on couples to have the “perfect” relationship. When everything is posted for the world to see, it can be hard to be yourself and be authentic. The pressure to post the “perfect” pictures and updates can be overwhelming, and it can lead to feelings of stress and unhappiness.
The study also found that couples who post less often are less likely to compare their relationship to others. They also report feeling less pressure to have the “perfect” relationship. This means that couples who don’t post as often are more likely to be happy and authentic in their relationship.
I’m not saying that couples should never post on social media. It can be a great way to share your relationship with friends and family. But it’s important to be mindful of how often you post, and to be aware of the potential risks of always posting.
For me, I’ve found that it’s helpful to take a break from social media every once in a while. When I take a break, I feel less pressure to post perfect pictures and updates, and I feel more connected to my partner. I also find that I’m less likely to compare my relationship to others.
Overall, couples who always post on social media are less happy than couples who don’t. While it can be a fun way to share your relationship with others, it’s important to be mindful of how often you post, and to be aware of the potential risks. Taking a break from social media every once in a while can be a great way to help you stay connected with your partner and be authentic in your relationship.
