1. Less Time for Loved Ones

Don't compare your relationship to others. People only show highlights, which can negatively impact your mood and view of your own relationship.

2. Comparing Other Relationships To Your Own

Beware of social media obsession. Checking partner's posts or stalking can lead to drama, fights, and breakups.
