The Internet is part of many romantic relationships, according to Mudita Rastogi, Ph.D, a licensed marriage and family therapist in Arlington Heights, Ill.
Many couples meet and court online. Many people turn to Google or Facebook to learn more about their dates. Many couples “also keep tabs on their partners, their exes, and sometimes their partner’s exes via social networking sites.”
But while social media affects relationships, some couples don’t even talk about it. That’s what Cynthia Rangel, MA, LPC, found in her doctoral research at the Illinois School of Professional Psychology.
