Social Media: Killer of relationships?

Social media: The killer of relationships. I think it is some truth to this, depending on the individual you are with and what you, or your significant other, are doing with social media. What are your thoughts about this? Do you think social media kills relationships? In my opinion, I think it does. When you constantly see your significant other holding their smartphone to their face at all times (at a restaurant, close to bedtime, when they get up in the morning, when they go to the bathroom, watching a movie, etc.) then yeah, it is! They are holding their device more often than they are holding you! That is a big problem! This will kill any relationship because you are more interested in whatever you are looking at instead of giving your significant other the time they deserve from you.  If you are running a business using any of the social media platforms, then I can understand being on there for the time being, but even then it should be a cutoff period.  There’s a time for you to run your business, and a time to shut everything down and focus on your relationship and your household.
Now I only have a straight out way to deal with this situation; let them know how frustrating it is. If you have a partner that can’t handle the straight forward way, there may be subtle ways to do this. If so, then let me and the readers know how you have resolved this your way.  If you are in a relationship with someone who seems to be in a relationship with social media, how did you deal with it?

    Alrighty now! Here comes Mr. Controversy. Hahahaha!!! I disagree on a couple of points. But 1 particular statement I found to be absolutely mind-blowing. I don’t think social media kills relationships at all. If a person’s unfaithful, they will use every outlet to get away. I blame murdered relationships on the individual. People have been unfaithful or non-attentive of their mate long before social media came around.

    But the mind-blowing statement was about business. I’m a firm believer in dedication & hard work to make a business work. Kobe Bryant said that he was successful because basketball came FIRST. He went on to say that he was blessed to have a wife that understood that they weren’t going to spend a lot of time together. And NOW that he’s accomplished greatness, he can spend time. I know about trying to get a small business off the ground. It’s hard. Very hard. There’s a million people trying to make it too. So people have to work harder than most. The question is HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT? If the mate doesn’t understand the hard work & competitive nature of business, then they’re more of a hindrance than help. I’ve read quite a few success stories. Most of them hardly slept, had a social life, hardly ate & even lost a relationship or 2. But that dedication & sacrifice made them rich & successful. So on the business tip, I couldn’t disagree with you more. Maybe we should discuss it on my show. You have an open invitation. <3
