Due to the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19), it is difficult for even lovers to meet. For this reason, exchanges through digital devices such as smartphones have exploded.

In fact, even before the Corona 19 pandemic, it is a world where it is difficult to distinguish between real life and digital space. Americans check their smartphones on average 46 times a day. Excluding the time to sleep, it is about once every 20 minutes. It’s hard to imagine a relationship without smart devices.

However, smartphones can be a risk factor for unknowingly ruining relationships. In this regard, let’s look at three digital etiquettes that can avoid spoiling the romance introduced by Time.com.

1. Post carefully

Studies show that couples who overload their photos on social media are less satisfied with their relationship. Posting a couple’s picture on Facebook does not deepen your relationship.

In addition, differences in the taste of posting can lead to serious conflicts. Experts say, “You have to be careful about what to put on where,” and “don’t embarrass others with one-sided postings.”

2. Don’t wait too long for a reply

Some couples text messages all day, while others communicate only once a day. Both are good if both parties agree.

Psychological counseling experts say, “Set and follow rules with your consent, but allow exceptions on anniversaries and birthdays.” If the other person doesn’t send the reply right away, you don’t have to be nervous. Being “busy” and being relaxed can help a relationship in the long run.

3. Play games together

There are ways to strategically use your smartphone for dating. Robert Weiss, a California psychological counselor, cited games that could be played while chatting with the other person. “Don’t play with the digital world, play with your partner,” he said.
