Some things are still better discussed privately than talking about it on public otherwise it might backfire at you. Ever heard of eavesdropping and how many relationships it has destroyed?

How relaxing it is to be just cosying up with your partner on a lazy afternoon and not even a single beep breaks that peace and silence between you two? If you have been tagged on that Facebook post; that could wait until later because the mere factyou are not giving your full attention to a partner is disrespectful. Truth is, there’s more to life than social media interactions.
Taking Selfies and Instagram-worthy Photos Everywhere
Couldn’t shake off the itch to take a series of selfies and we-fies with friends and your surroundings? Time for you to realize that you don’t need the “likes” of other people to validate yourself because you’re beautiful in your own way. See that person beside you? He/she loves you just the same. So, don’t take selfies ALL THE TIME that it has kept you pre-occupied and forget about the person you’re with right now. This might make him feel like his presence is not enough to keep your focus on him.
Texting or Calling When You’re Drunk
You’ve been there, done that for sure, but how did that make you feel whether you’re on the receiving end of the message or not? Romantic? Bothersome? See, when you’re drunk you are not sure of what you are doing so don’t confuse someone who’s going to read your I-love-you-when-I’m-drunk message. It is just downright improper. Say it the right way by approaching the person personally and make sure you are sober.
Keeping in Touch with Your Exes
Truth be told, cheating is already painful as it is, but doing it in front of your partner is evil.

If ever one of you has gotten to that point, better talk it down and address what’s wrong in the relationship instead of spying on each other’s mobile phone activities endlessly.
Flooding Text Messages during Working Hours

There you have it! With these tips, you should now have become aware of your mobile phone habits that could either make or break a potential relationship
