Recent studies show that dating apps can lead to more fulfilling marriages in comparison to relationships formed offline. Of the couples who were surveyed, less than six percent of those who met online got divorced, while the break-up rate for marriages formed offline was almost eight percent.
Does online dating create longer lasting relationships?
A new paper suggests partners who meet online are more likely to be compatible than those who meet in person. The paper adds to a growing body of research suggesting marriages that start online are stronger and last longer than relationships that start offline.
Social media has changed the way we meet and interact with each other. Growing research has shown that increased usage of social media has had a negative effect on marriages and relationships. Higher levels of social media usage have led to more marital problems, infidelity, conflicts, jealousy, and eventually divorce.
If you think that you or your spouse could have a problem with social media addiction, then seeking help will be a good idea. You could do this with the help of a therapist if its really bad. Another good idea is to have a “screen-free evening.” This will allow you time to reconnect and talk.
Social media ruins relationships as couples may start to compare their bond with others. When couples spend too much time on social media, they may start to compare their relationship and bond with that of others. This, eventually, puts them in unwanted pressure and the surrender to it.
Do men fall in love faster?
It actually proves a much bigger point. A new study found men actually fall in love quicker than women, and the reason could be biological. A study of 172 college students found men reported falling in love earlier than women and expressing that sentiment first.
As mentioned before, when a person receives likes, dopamine gets released in the brain, which makes you feel good. This works in the same way that drugs work on the brain and which tends to make social media addictive. People might stop living in the real world, and begin to neglect their partners.
