Social media might have become cool stuff for all now, be it the singles or the ones in a relationship. Everyone is more concerned about when to get that time to scroll up the newsfeed instead of fetching time for the loved ones.
Unfortunately, the way your partner handles social media can create a sense of insecurity in a relationship, which wasn’t there earlier. So, if you are disturbed internally by such behaviour, you might want to confront your partner about this. Well, it’s not an easy thing to do. Asking about such a thing might make your partner question your trust and many tiffs might arise. But we have some suggestions, which might help you to deal with the situation logically.
