Relationships in this generation are either very serious or very casual. There is absolutely no-winning when it comes to relationships. Most of them take relationships very casually and that feeling or ritual of waiting for your loved one or thinking about long-term is slowly fading in this drawl of following trends and keeping your followers updated about your relationships.
Just like names are given to different levels in a game, there are names in relationships too. From ‘love-bombing’ to ‘bread-crumbling’, there are various names available in this world of dating. Moreover, this generation likes to depend on Tinder or other dating apps rather than simply seeking and waiting for their particular better-half who is good for them and also, the right one. Even dating is a rush like the traffic and competition in this generation.
Cheating in a relationship or even in any other situations in life is more like a sin. Ever heard about ‘micro-cheating’? Sounds ridiculous, right? Well, it should not be ridiculous because there is actually a term known as ‘micro-cheating’.
What is micro-cheating?
This legitimate term refers to being attracted or dividing your slightest attention to someone on social media. YES! If you are continuously liking or commenting on pictures or posts of someone specific, then mate, you are ‘micro-cheating’ on your partner. Only if you have one. According to a psychologist, Martin Graff, an associate fellow of the British Psychological Society. “It can be something as simple as repeatedly ‘liking’ someone’s posts on Instagram or commenting on someone’s Facebook,” explained Graff. This practice is usually not a cause for alarm, according to relationship experts and therapists who spoke with Men’s Health. In fact, flirting with people other than your partner can sometimes be a good thing for your relationship – to a point.
Every relationship has its own ups and downs. Once the ‘honeymoon-phase’ in a relationship gets over, things start getting real. You might find yourself disagreeing with some perceptions of your partner or maybe, you both will have silly arguments, but this doesn’t mean that you will break-up, until it’s very serious and cross all the limits.
