Whether you are in a relationship or about to be in one, you really have to pay attention to social media. Some things you did online when you were single will not be tolerated now, and you have to be aware of that. Here are a few pieces of advice to help you keep your relationship healthy on social media.

You shouldn't make comparisons between your relationship and the others on social media. They are not always as perfect as they seem.

3. Commenting Things

Don't put too many "hearts" on other people's post because you don't know if that person has certain feelings for you or whether your partner will see that and start wondering why you did that.

4. Relationship Status

Ask your partner about the status of your relationship before you update it on social media.

5. Chatting

Also, you should talk to your partner about how much you two should chat, what is acceptable and what's not. That way you will avoid meaningless fights.

6. Be Honest

Don't go out with your friends and tell your partner that you are going to sleep or do something important. Someone will post a picture of you or tag you in a post and your partner will find out. Don't lie.

7. Don't Talk About Them in a Mean Way on Social Media

If you have something going on your mind about your partner that's troubling you, tell them. Don't post it online.

8. Admirers

Don't talk to your admirers too often. Your partner will think there's something going on between you two when you were just being polite instead.

9. Privacy on Social Media

You can get any information you need online. That means others can too. So pay attention to what you are posting on social media.

10. Stalking

Don't be a stalker. Your partner won't find it romantic or cute, it can only be irritating. Don't write silly comments on your partner's every post and don't check up on them all the time.

11. Exes

Don't talk to your exes because your partner would think you still have feelings for them.

12. Consequences

What happens online doesn't stay only online, there are consequences in real life, too. Pay attention to what you are doing and don't do anything that could harm your partner.
