Breaking up with someone has never been easy, but in this age of status updates, checking in and documenting your every move online, it's only getting harder. Not only do you have to find a way to remove your ex from your real life, but you've got to hit delete on their digital presence as well.
FACEBOOK RELATIONSHIP STATUS
If the friend of my enemy is my enemy, then is the friend of my date going to be my date? A lot of guys may want it that way. (and some girls too.) What about the Facebook friend of my date? Facebook doesn’t make it easy to keep your dating life on the down low. If you are Facebook friends with your date, then chances are she has her ways of finding out who else you are dating. And that’s a good thing in my book. If you are really trying to two-time your girlfriend with her best friend you should at least have the decency to be stealthy about it.
It has come to my attention that my generation believes if a relationship is not "Facebook official," then the relationship is not real. This means that if the "in a relationship" box is not checked off on a profile, then the relationship is nonexistent. When did Facebook take over our lives?
It's Facebook official! After recognizing that many of its same-sex married couple members have been using the "married" icons meant for straight couples, Facebook has introduced new "married" timeline icons for gay users, one of which depicts two brides, the other, two grooms.
From cheating online to lamenting a break up that has moved on — I hear about how Facebook has supposedly ruined their marriage or their dating relationship. But guess what? Facebook didn't do anything. The responsibility here lies on the people involved ... not the technology. Here are some quick tips for you to remember on how to keep your relationship offline and healthy. It all starts with boundaries.
Hopefully, you'll get proposed to once in your life, and when that big moment happens, it will be one you'll never forget. Preferably, some candles, champagne, an exotic location or extravagant gesture will be involved... Not your boyfriend's Facebook status.
Being in a relationship involves being committed to another person. It takes two people to give 100 percent of themselves to remain an alliance. In the beginning, if you are on a social media site like Facebook, it is only natural to want to post "In a Relationship" as your relationship status to show all of your 500 friends how happy you both are. But what happens when the relationship ends? What do you do then?
This week's Relationship Fail comes courtesy of our friends over at STFUCouples.com, a genius Tumblr that also likes to point out the annoying things couples post online. We just had to share their most recent finding with you because, well, it's a classic.
This week, our Relationship Fail comes from an anonymous reader who can't help but be bombarded with annoying status updates from a particular couple whenever she logs on to Facebook.
We hate to do this to you so early in the week, but someone needs to point out the grave Relationship Fails that are happening all over Facebook — and may even be popping up in your News Feed as we speak.
Announcing you're in love via a Facebook status update will always be tacky, but this latest Relationship Fail we found may be the worst instance yet.
Sharing your singles dating experience? We all share the minutiae of our lives on Facebook. When we sleep, what we eat, how long we wait at a bus stop, it’s all there on Facebook. In fact, Facebook are setting out to record our lives so we can look back on them and say that was the year of 2011. Yet, when we are single, Facebook takes on a whole new parallel on several levels.
You’ve found someone special, and you want everyone to know about it, so you’ve chosen to Facebook it. But, be aware that timing is crucial. Don’t freak out your date by changing your relationship status to “in a relationship” after the first date or make them feel unimportant by not even announcing your engagement. Read on for a few tips on how to ease through the stages of a relationship on Facebook. Stage 1: Become Facebook Friends
In a 21st-Century twist on Weird Science, Cloud Girlfriend claims that their service, which launches April 26th, will create virtual girlfriends who post messages and respond publicly to you on your favorite social networks.
Next month, I will be married for 23 years and, Facebook, I've got news: as far as status goes, Married and It's Complicated are not two separate categories. Women who have been married for more than a few years, and especially those with children, know this fundamental truth.
There are so many things wrong with the "It's Complicated" status that sometimes I wonder if Facebook just threw it up on the profile settings just for kicks and giggles. Maybe this so-called relationship status comes with the territory of our generation's tendency to overshare on social media sites, but this is almost as bad as your sister posting a home video of giving birth to her firstborn on Facebook and tagging it, "a miracle."
