Give Me Your Password So I Know it's Real

Being in a committed relationship comes with more than just a "Facebook Official" notification. These days, technology rules our lives and even sometimes our relationships. It's hard to trust people with so many different social media platforms available and the internet taking over our privacy. Today, 4 out of 10 people seek relationships online. What makes you think your partner isn't out there looking for something better? Even if they're serious about you and just want to have a little fun, dating online is still technically cheating, and very easy to do. 

We all hate to think about the possibilities of the bad. The percentage of couples who say the internet has a negative impact on their relationship is higher than ever. This doesn't necessarily mean that you should feel threatened, it's just a warning sign of what's to be expected in the future of dating. The idea of a fairy tale ending is diminishing more and more as our use of technology increases.

Social apps and websites, what used to be merely a fun way to keep up with friends, is now a battlefield for relationships. Apps like Tinder, which is a shallow way of dating (basically a hook-up site), is just one of the many apps bringing online dating to your smartphone. The app uses your location to determine singles around you. You then basically rate people based on looks and get matched up with those who find you attractive. However, what you don't know is that some of the people on apps like this one could in fact be in a relationship already. 

Even with shows like CatFish, which is about people who date online and the difficulties that come with it, people are still creating false identities and perceptions of themselves that they want others to see. 

With more online activity and engagement with other people, the secrets pile up, unless you're open about it. That's why if he/she is really committed to you, they will have no problem sharing with you their online activity and passwords. Next time you find yourself questioning your partners whereabouts, ask them for their password. If they are willing to give it to you, it's a good sign; if they're hesitant, it might be time to reevaluate your relationship. Whatever it might be, just remember that your Juno Power charger will always be faithful to you and doesn't cheat. (:
