Happy couples who post slushy stuff on Facebook all the time ‘probably hate each other’

Everyone knows a Facebook ‘power couple’ whose selfies and gushing posts look and sound like a love montage from a Hollywood film. But you know what? They may well hate each other’s guts. I'm not saying this. It's a research Metro has published. Read it to believe it:

Sexologist Nikki Goldstein told Mail Online, ‘Often it’s the people who post the most who are seeking validation for their relationship from other people on social media.

‘The likes and comments can be so validating that when someone is really struggling, that’s where they get their up from – not the person making the gesture, but what other people will say about it.

It can also be an indicator that one partner is controlling and possessive, Goldstein warns.

Previous research from Brunel University found that people who posted frequently about their romantic partner often had low self-esteem, according to the researchers, who surveyed 555 Facebook users.
