Social Media is one of the most important place to get information or to while away time but some persons have used it as an avenue to seek relationship advice.
There have been lot of havoc caused due to advise from social media, here are some reasons why you should never seek relationship advise from social media.
1. Most people advise you based on their idea of your relationship
Most people will give you advice based on what they have seen of your relationship. So if their idea of your relationship is a lot of love on your part, they can assume your partner is too tough. They will give advice that makes you feel you need to be stronger, even when they don’t have the full picture.

2. Nobody knows the full story
Similar to the first point, when you’re talking about relationship issues, most people give one-sided stories. People will then advise you based on your side of the story and this might not always be the right way to go. Especially when the other party is not around to tell their side.
3. Some advice comes from a place of pain
Another reason social groups are not the best place to take advice is that people are in different moods at different times. Most people can’t separate what they feel from what’s logical and can project their issues onto you. So they give advise based on how they feel at the time and not on the issue you’re tackling.

4. It can make you romanticize people
We hear what people tell us about their relationship and how they handle it. Then we assume that’s what’s truly happening and then want to be like them or act on their advice. The problem with this is that people tend to romanticize their lives for the world to see so they lie or exaggerate.
