 What are some reasons to go public with your romance?

Cupid’s Advice:

Though being in a private relationship has its perks, it’s best to go public with your relationship after some time. Here are a few reasons to announce your relationship:

1. Recognition: It’s nice to be noticed as a couple. By going public, your friends can provide insight into your relationship and help you through some rough patches.

2. No hassle: Sometimes life can be easier when people know that you’re in a relationship. By letting people know you’re off the market, many awkward situations can be avoided.

3. Less work:  Keeping your relationship private can be tough, especially with today’s social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook. By announcing your relationship, you can post photos and tweet messages without worrying about what you’re revealing.
