Cupid’s Advice:

Outsiders aren’t always your best friends. They will nitpick and find every single way to taint the connection between you and your partner. Consider this relationship advice from Cupid:

1. Maintain a sense of mystery: Nowadays, many couples share their most intimate moments to complete strangers without even realizing it. From happy times to the occasional arguments, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram make it easy to reveal all. Instead, keep your feelings to yourself and let others think what they want about your relationship and love.

2. Focus on the positives: You may feel the urge to air your dirty laundry to family and friends, but be careful. Yes, it can be pretty tempting to vent about something your partner did or didn’t do, but if you continuously tell your loved ones the negatives, they’ll soon forget the positives. Remember to highlight the good times as well as the bad times.
