Social networks and relationships have become increasingly essential for a number of reasons. It's a space to share experiences, to show off your love, and to stalk your romantic partner.

It's fine to surreptitiously scroll through your partner's Twitter/Instagram/Facebook/Tumblr and so on. But a new study found in the journal Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking, claims it's the "preoccupied" and "fearful" types are more likely to spy on their partners.
The study surveyed 328 university students (145 male and 183 female Facebook users, from ages 18-48, predominately caucasian), so take these results with a grain of salt.
[The survey] examined two potential explanatory variables for interpersonal electronic surveillance (IES) of romantic partners: attachment style and relational uncertainty.

What's more, to influence it to work - and keep it a sound, useful and sexual, you need to invest effort, responsibility and well, get somewhat innovative. Read more

We worry about things that we have no control over. All of these things may mean we’re not taking opportunities that are presented to us and we’re not living life to the full because we’re always looking for the negative. Read more
