DO: Message BAE privately to tell them you love them
It's important to tell your partner you love them every day. Do that!
DON'T: Tag them in public statuses declaring your undying love for the world to see
This is just uncomfortable. People automatically assume you're trying to make your relationship look more stable and blissful than it is if you do things like this.
DO: Tag your partner in hilarious memes
Because memes are the BEST.
DON'T: Tag him or her in a weekly #ManCrushMonday or #WomanCrushWednesday Instagram post
Only people who date losers do this because it makes them feel better about it. Seriously, your friends will make fun of you mercilessly behind your back (and probably to your face) if you post pictures of your boo as your #MCM or #WCW on a weekly basis. Seriously.
DO: Text BAE happy birthday (yes, you can even post a status and tag them)
It's your boyfriend’s birthday and he wants to feel loved. Today it is appropriate to be overly excited.
DON'T: Do this if you've been together less than nine months
Don't get insane on social media if you're not in a serious relationship. Just call your new boo and wish him or her a happy day of birth.
DO: Go out and celebrate your anniversaries if you want to
If you want to privately celebrate your four-month anniversary, that is your business.
DON'T: Post about it on any form of social media unless it is MULTIPLE YEARS of dating
If your friends and family are subjected to monthly celebration pictures they are going to murder you.
DO: Have a great night out with your friends, binge-watch Netflix, and have a threesome with Ben & Jerry in the event of a breakup
Breakups suck. Go out. Party. Or, stay in and be miserable if that's more your style.
