In an ever advancing technological world, we have become less and less private about our lives. From our location at any given moment to our relationships, nothing is sacred anymore.

Unfortunately, it is because of social media that many relationships have begun ending. Couples have lost the art of privacy, and no longer understand what moments should be kept private and which ones should be shared. And while many claims that posting about your relationship is merited because it is part of your life. Others feel that if their partner is posting about them that they are less likely to cheat however this isn’t true at all.

So where do we draw the line? Well, while many of these may seem obvious, we all know that handful of people that tell everyone, everything.

1. Anything About Your Sex Life

Telling others about your sex life is a no-no period, especially when it concerns a long term partner. Examples of such would be different things that you have tried that are completely intimate. Or, how much you do or don’t have sex. Not only is this an invasion of privacy, but it also creates a competition between your partner and the partners of your friends/family that you are discussing it with.

2. Fights or Arguments

Unless you are being emotionally or physically abused, you should keep any arguments or fights between you and your partner to yourself. The reason being is that there is no way you can offer a completely non-biased version of the fight to the person you are discussing it with, and while you and your friend may be able to come up with a resolution, it excludes your partner from the equation.

3. Anything Said In Privacy

Part of being in a relationship is being trustworthy and allowing for your partner to confide in you. Whether or not the other person will keep what is said to themselves is not the issue, instead, you are breaching your partner’s trust in you by telling others what they confided in you about.

4. Perceived Imperfections

None of us are perfect, and when you get to know someone on a deep enough level to be in a long-term relationship with them, you will learn about all of their flaws. Keep them to yourself, as explaining them to others is a massive betrayal which can lead to a variety of problems and issues.

5. Quirky Family Issues Your Partner Has

Criticizing your partners family is uncalled for, to begin with, however, when you begin telling others about it, you can lead your partner to feel as though you are judging the ones they love. Not only are you judging them, but you are bringing other people into the problem which will hurt your partners feeling.

6. Financial Issues

When you are in a long-term relationship, at one point or another you will experience money trouble. However, while it may be tempting to vent to a friend about your troubles, it is never a good idea to do so. Telling friends and family members about your financial issues will only make them worse. Instead, speak with a financial adviser.

7. Every Detail Of Your Relationship

The best part of being in a relationship is that it is just the two of you. Don’t share every little detail of your relationship with others, because when you invite someone else into the relationship you will lose the best parts of your bond.
