One common behaviour suggests you're feeling insecure in the partnership...

By Francesca Rice, Prima

If you're inundated with loved-up couple photos whenever you scroll through social media, then you might be surprised to hear that all may not be as it seems...

Because, according to a new study, how regularly you post couple-y snaps on Facebook or Instagram sends a powerful message about the state of your relationship – and probably not the one you had in mind either.

[post_ads]It turns out that couples who feel the need to post lots of lovey-dovey selfies or status updates are actually LESS likely to be happy, the Independent reports.
In fact, it's those of us who choose not to splash our love all over social media who probably feel the most secure in our partnerships.

After looking into the phenomenon in a study called 'Can You Tell That I'm in a Relationship? Attachment and Relationship Visibility on Facebook', researchers from Northwestern University and Haverford College in the US concluded that, 'On a daily basis, when people felt more insecure about their partner's feelings, they tended to make their relationships visible.'
So, basically, if you're constantly posting about how wonderful your partner is or sharing gooey photos, then it might not be a great sign.

Of course, there's nothing wrong with sharing the love if you're feeling it, but you might want to leave that selfie stick at home on your next date night...
