By Talking Teenage Jennifer A. Powell-Lunder, Psy.D., for GalTime.com A few days ago a guy I was friendly with in college changed his status from ‘single’ to ‘in a relationship.’ The flurry of speculative phone calls that followed reached epic proportions. “I didn’t even know he was divorced,” cried one friend. “Who would marry him?,” asked his ex-girlfriend from college.
#YouKnowYoureInLoveIf is trending on Twitter right now. That makes us think: How do you really know when you're in love? Well, here's what some of the Twitter-sphere had to say!

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?

In the pre-Internet age, getting over an ex was pretty straightforward. You took his picture off the mantel, avoided places he might be, and gave back that comfy sweatshirt you loved sleeping in (or possibly burned it). 10 Signs You Might Need To Break Up With Your Ex Nowadays, breaking up is a lot more complicated—Facebook and Twitter provide you with up-to-the-minute details about your ex's new life, your cell phone is full of pictures of the two of you together and your iTunes playlist still houses the "For My Greatest Love" playlist.
Over the years I have had so many different kids of friendships. When we're kids we share toys and have fun sleepovers.
