Social media PDA is beautiful. No doubt.


To show off bae to friends and followers on social media or not?

No to social media loving

To say no to this question would be to depart very far away from the grid of operation of modern relationships.

Afterall, how many people in relationships do not extensively share pictures of their baes and boos on social media?

It is acceptable, encouraged and pretty much one of the unsaid rules of millennial relationships, given how involved everyone is in the practice.

And it is absolutely explainable. Of every ten persons you see, 9 have at least, two social media accounts.

Platforms on which an avenue to proudly display babe’s comely features and romantic dates are well provided. Think status updates and stories.

On media platforms like Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook where media uploads is the fundamental purpose, it’ll take some extraordinary, intentional abstinence to not have a picture or clip of your sweetheart on your profile timeline, when most of your pixelated memories have them at the centre of it all [or almost].

In addition, to say no to uploads of bae on your social media platforms would likely be mistaken as a sign that you are not proud to have your partner in your life. A reluctance to show off your sweetheart on social media could be interpreted as a sign that you're hiding the relationship from either a side-chick or a side-guy.

Yes to cute social media posts

If on the other hand you like sharing bae’s pictures on your social media pages, you are in good company; firmly sat in a bandwagon of expressive, modern couples whose love, affection and cute moments transcends reality into the realm of virtual PDA.

And you are doing just fine. So far you are happy and your boo has nothing against it, just keep doing you.

Which is better?

In the end, sharing Instagram pictures of your boyfriend is not what will make him snatched. He will get snatched if he chooses to or if you allow him through neglect.

If you think showing your boyfriend’s face on your social media space exposes him to being targeted by other women, then letting him even step out of the house should scare you shitless too!

Afterall, the risk of exposure to other women is higher when he actually goes out than when you put a picture of you and him on your snapchat.

But then you can’t keep your partner locked away to protect him from other men or women, can you?

If posting happy pictures and sweet memories on your social media space is what your thing, by all means you should post as many of them as you please even if your boyfriend is in a lot of them.
