Technology's Impact on Romantic Relationships
Transcript of Technology's Impact on Romantic Relationships
In the past, before all of today's technology was invented, romantic relationships were much different than they are now.
Social Media's Effect on Relationships
Because of social media and social networking, relationships of all kinds are made MUCH more public than they used to be. Online dating especially with the use of social network sites is also very common today, and some aspects of this may surprise you.

Although cell phones are very useful to most people, they can actually have quite a harmful effect on relationships of any kind - especially romantic ones.

"If you have something to say, say it to my face"
It is extremely hard to tell what someone means by what they are saying without actually hearing their tone of voice or seeing the look in their eyes.
More Face-to-Face Interaction
Before technological advances, couples were forced to communicate face-to-face. This was much more beneficial for the relationship.
Love letters were a sincere way to share your feelings by writing them on paper. They are very romantic and much less common today
Sexting is sending, receiving, or forwarding sexual photos or sexually suggestive messages through text message or email.
28% of teens admitted to having sent a sext.
Some states that are known to prosecute for sexting charges include Indiana, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wyoming.
Even if you have a relationship with your webcam partner and if there is a break up or he /she shows it to a friend and it gets copied, you could be the next star on YouTube.
How are social media and social networking sites destroying relationships?
Social Networks Cause Drama!
Whether your boyfriend likes another girl's photo on Facebook, or you find him sending messages behind your back, social networks can cause a whole lot of jealousy and drama!
"Are you FBO yet?!"
The term "FBO" means Facebook Official, which is when you post on your profile when you have a new boyfriend or girlfriend. This puts a lot of pressure on relationships.
Believe it or not, people fall in love over the internet every single day, without ever meeting in person!
