Please, Spare Us From These 6 Relationship Posts That Should Never Make It On Social Media

I think it’s safe to say that we all have at least one friend that posts their relationship, in its entirety, on social media. From the moment they wake up to the moment they go to sleep, you can count on their presence, and relationship updates, in your news feed.

Without putting in any effort, you are somehow up to date on the details of their relationship. So, for those who use social media like it’s a personal diary, here are 6 things you should stop doing immediately.

1. Stop posting *everything* on social media.

I have so many things to ask, but first…do you actually have any secrets or personal things between you two? I think it’s safe to say that the social media world doesn’t want to know.

I really don’t care about what you packed your significant other for lunch, and I definitely don’t care what you and bae did at the gym each day for the past month, so please, stop.

2. Keep your seven weeks, 19 weeks or even seven month anniversary to yourself.

Save the super gushy posts for the bigger, more memorable anniversaries, please. I’m really happy for you, but if you’re really that excited to celebrate the seven weeks you have been together, I feel that it should be a personal thing.

In my opinion, when I see couples that are so focused on each other and so tunneled-in on the smallest things, it makes me feel that they aren’t able to reliably contribute or participate in the world around them.

3. No one actually wants to see bae sleeping.

If my significant other posted a picture of me sleeping, which I’m sure is never flattering, I’d be pissed. Unless there is a pet(s) involved, I’d prefer not to see it…and even then, it probably isn’t flattering.

You see? Fortunately, until this article, this photo has never seen the light of day.

4. Any kind of “adult” content.

I thought this was pretty much an unspoken rule but keep anything you wouldn’t want your parents seeing off your timeline, even if you’re parents are the coolest people in the world or aren’t friends with you on social media. Not only out of respect for yourself and your partner but for, oh, I don't know, your future.

5. Sharing “relatable” pictures, posts, or statuses that give away all of your unspoken feelings.

If something happens that causes you some kind of emotional response between you and your significant other, the last place you should go is social media. Unless you’re starving for attention, then maybe consider it.

6. Any kind of argument, disagreement, issues with your significant other.

I’m not sure how or why this is something that still exists, but when you post about how you’re upset or on a break or need space from your significant other, and are back with them posting the next day, no one forgets.

Public fights, especially ones on social media, are messy. Not saying anyone is judging you, but we definitely don’t forget.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

If 'Hockey Is For Everyone,' Why Is Matt Dumba So Alone In Fighting For Racial Equality In The NHL?

If the NHL is using #WeSkateForEquality, why is Dumba alone in the fight for equality?

On Saturday, August 1, 2020, the National Hockey League resumed play for the first time since March 12, 2020. The season was paused due to the growing coronavirus (COVID-19) spread and a concern for the players contacting the virus and spreading it through the League. Fans and players sat and waited for the hockey season to resume, which took more than 140 days.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).
