The psychology behind social media PDA

Ugh social media. Somehow it’s ended up being the backbone of my career and I’m not proud of it.

Intuitive or downright cray?

This is one of the first posts I’m going to write without a neat and tidy ending.

I’ve been dating a wonderful guy for about two months now. He’s perhaps one of the most delightful people I’ve ever come across. He’s sensitive, warm and is genuinely into me. Regularly, he casually drops into conversation the features he adores about me.
