Nowadays, social media is the place where you can find and see everything. Literally everything, especially what’s going on in your dating life. So if you have a boo and still haven’t posted anything about them, especially on the Gram, then you might wanna start thinking about when you will. Actually, there is a right time when you should post about your relationship online, so listen up!
Can You See Your Boo In Your Future?
Okay, so this doesn’t mean you hope to still be dating this person two weeks from now. Just keep in mind that there needs to be some commitment because whatever you post online is seen by everyone. You wanna make sure that if you post about your boo, that you’re still going to be dating them a month or two down the road. Otherwise, it would be pointless to post about them and have it be deleted a day or even a week later. If that happens, you’re going to get a lot of questions from your friends asking about your breakup or what happened with him/her, and that’s the last thing you want to deal with.
Make Sure Your Boo Is On The Same Page As You
Before you go posting pictures and making claims, you should first have a talk about posting with the person you’re dating. Maybe they have some family online that doesn’t approve of them dating or don’t know. Or maybe they’re private and don’t like to post things about themselves. Whatever it is, work it out, because you don’t want to post about him or her and be disappointed if they don’t post about you. That can lead to a lot of problems. So just check in with them, see how they feel about going public online.
Be Truly Happy
This is extremely, extremely important! If you post a picture of you and your boo, that picture should be exactly like how your relationship is in real life. If you find yourself happy and smiling, when in reality all you do is argue, then what good is that gonna do for you? You’re going to constantly be comparing your relationship to that picture, and worrying more about how happy and cute you both look in pictures than how happy you are in real life. Be confident about your relationship and your happiness first!
