Five ways WhatsApp kills relationships
1. The blue tick marks, showing a message has been read, lead to fights if there isn’t an instant reply. 2. You end up staring at your screen to check whether your partner is online — in effect stalking them. 3. Text messages are easy to misinterpret. 4. It can make you passiveaggressive. Instead of confronting your partner you reply with a “K” or ignore messages. 5. Being in constant touch can stifle a relationship.
