Don’t Tell Friends Everything about Your Relationship!

You're in an overall great relationship. You love your partner, and the two of you get along really well... until you hit a snag. Now, you've gotten into a huge fight, and you're not sure what to do. Here's the big question: Do you talk to your friends about your relationship? You may be surprised to find that the answer is no. Talking to your friends about your relationship is actually not the best idea sometimes and her As why.
YOUR FRIENDS ONLY SEE YOUR SIDE
The first, and most obvious reason why you reconsider talking to your friends about your relationship is because they are only going to hear your side. They are going to hear about how your partner is being totally unreasonable and mean, and they likely aren't going to hear about how you both might've contributed to the disagreement you had.
By only hearing your side, not only will your friends not be able to see the full picture, but they'll also probably wonder why you are with someone so crappy at all. And you'll know the truth — that your partner isn't crappy ,you were just having a bad day and venting.
YOUR FRIENDS COULD DEVELOP A REALLY NEGATIVE VIEW OF YOUR PARTNER
Let's be honest: Even though some of us share the good things in our relationships, most of us only talk to our friends about our relationships when things are going wrong. And if your friends hear about things going wrong again and again, they'll start to develop a negative view of your partner. And that will really suck.
IT COULD KEEP YOU FROM TALKING TO YOUR PARTNER ABOUT ISSUES THAT COME UP
When you talk to your friends about a problem you are having, they might help you solve it. If they do, you might feel good about your relationship and not feel the need to talk about the problem anymore. What's the problem with this problem? Well, that you never talked to your partner about it. All great relationships are built on communication and by talking to your friends instead of your partner, you take that communication away.
IT MIGHT WEAKEN YOUR RELATIONSHIP
The most important reason not to run to your friends about your issues in your relationship is because doing so can weaken it. My partner and I didn't want to let other people in to see the vulnerabilities of our relationship because other people aren't us. They don't know how much we love each other, they don't know the intricacies of our emotions, and they don't know how much we value our marriage.
So go out of your way to keep your relationship sacred, and take care of your issues with your partner — not with the rest of the world.
