When you find that special someone you want the world to know. When you’re over your ex and onto the next you want to show off your bae. With social media once you post something you can’t take it back and you leave room open for opinions and judgements to be formed. How long should one wait until their post their bae on social media? Are there levels to posting someone you’re dating on social media? Let’s discuss.
The poll of the day, Is there a certain amount of time that you should wait until you post pictures of the person you’re dating on social media? 50% voted yes while the other 50% voted no.
Personally speaking I feel as though you should be serious about the person you’re involved in and sure about this person is whom you want the world to know about. I believe 6 months to a year is enough time dictate how you feel about this person.
I also believe that you need to have a solid foundation between the two of you and both of you need to be secure. When you post bae you’re opening the flood gates of opinions and judgements and of course someone always has a story to tell.
I don’t think you should post every person you have been involved with at some point in your life it doesn’t look good on your part and who wants to go back and delete all those photos from your Instagram page?! Your social media is a reflection of you and when you decide to post someone whom you care about on your page that person should be someone you respect and trust has your best interest not to make you look like a fool.
Just because you post your bae on social media doesn’t mean your relationship is perfect it just means this is whom you are involved with and you want people to know your off the market. Same thing goes for if you choose not to post whom you’re involved with it doesn’t mean you’re hiding something or keeping a secret. Just because it’s not posted on social media doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.
There is a difference of being private and keeping secrets, a thin line but there is a difference , honey. As long as the both of you are on the same page and you have a clear understanding of what it is between the two of you that is all that matters. You don’t need to explain or justify your actions. Say you post a picture or two every now and again it doesn’t mean people have to know all about the two of you or how you met or what type things you buy one another. Say you don’t post whom you’re dating it doesn’t mean your single or living a lie.
Do as you choose but be smart. Do what makes you happy and don’t let social media have you thinking your wrong for your actions. Share your thoughts below.
