Social media is a wonderful tool with great perks, but it can be hazardous to your relationship.

Below are five ways it could destroy your relationship.

1. Relationship status issues

If your partner would rather be seen as single on social media, that can send the signal to others that they are available, and create chaos in your relationship.

2. You want what you see others posting

People will post about how much they are in love and what wonderful lives they are living when the reality is that they might not be so happy in real life. Social media creates an idea of an ideal that can destroy your perception of what a relationship should be.

3. It stirs up jealousy

Unnecessary arguments can flare over someone liking a post or a picture of your partner, or vice versa.

4. It transforms partners into CIA agents

Social media encourages distrust and that can blossom into a disastrous situation. People believe they can find out if their partners are cheating by hacking their social media accounts, for example.

5. It encourages affairs and cheating

One can say that they are only looking but your eyes are extremely powerful. It opens you up to lust and lust can lead to something that can destroy your relationship.
