  • It depends.. I don't think that the second you start dating you should update it on every social media. That just seems like narcissist behavior.
    But overtime, it will probably became natural to oust pictures with your bf/gf. After all, it is probably the person you spend most time with. So I think that's cute and totally normal to post couple pictures.
    Obviously people will realise you're in a relationship and you don't even need to post about it in your status.
    At that point if you decide to update your status, I'd think it's cute. After a while off being together, you know the relationship is real and you know you want to develop it further, and you are happy to share that with the world. Yea, it's cute

  • This is probably going to be weird since I’m a woman, but it’s a turn off for me. I constantly see these “instagram couples” on my feed and i feel as if the relationship is rather forced and they’re just doing it “for the gram”. When I was in college i’d always see this girl posting everything her man would give for her and it just felt as if she was showing off and trying to make it seem like there was more than what there really was? I’m all for showing off my partner every once in a while, but all the time is a little weird for me. However it’s not my feed or my relationship, so I just let them do them. (:

  • If it's excessive, then, yeah, it's a turn off. If it's moderate, that's fine.

    Note that my minimal social media presence is almost exclusively for my business. I have no desire to keep up with any Kardashians, or anyone else, really, beyond the people I see in person.

  • I’m not a fan of this... because if you two split.. EVERYONE and their dog knows you split. And now you’re the talk on the block. Better to take those pictures and share them amongst each other to cherish together and that’s it

  • It just feels like he's bragging or looking for validation. I dont want private stuff to be public. No one cares we've been dating 3 weeks so dont rub it in their face. Plus it makes breakups even more awkward

  • I voted that I think it's cute, but how he/she publicizes the relationship would change my answer. If my S/O posted on occasion or excited about the time we spend together, I would think it was cute. If they constantly posted stuff, I would question the relationship because it would feel like they were trying to "show off".

  • I tend to find that the more public a relationship is the more likely it is to fail. Like if you are constantly posting cute photos together on social media, or kissing in front of people or bragging about things to friends.

  • I think posting pictures after a vacation together or for anniversaries and important life moments is good but other than that it's obnoxious to me. My boyfriend is on my snapchat pretty often but I've only posted about him once on facebook and twice on Instagram (all three posts were after a vacation, and no sooner than 6 months into the relationship) and we've been together for a year in five days.

  • I guess its cute and their way of showing you off or whatever but if it gets to the point where they over do it or share something way to personal like a photo in bed together with nothing but sheets on that's a bit much.

  • No, not that I think its cute, but it's something that I can live with or without. If my partner likes to show the world of our relationship, I'm fine with her doing that, if not, I'm cool with that as well.

  • It depends on how much and what it is. Like if it's only sometimes and it just because they were happy and was to share that, it's fine. Otherwise, it is a turnoff for me

  • Without my consent, hell yes.

    I told an ex of mine that I prefer he does not share my pictures with his classmates or friends. He did to a few guys, they shared with more guys and my selfies got viral among all of his classmates. I hated that.

  • It's a major turn off. Since I am half of the partnership, I should be consulted, in which case I would say NO.
    Of course, this is hypothetical, as nothing of the sort has happened for me.
