Does Being Official on Facebook Matter?

I think to some people being on Facebook with the relationship is a huge deal. It's the complete and total public acknowledgement of your relationship. However, I feel people give Facebook an  important place in their lives that is unnecessary at times. I think if your boyfriend or girlfriend is an active user ( meaning they check Facebook daily or more than once a day) then it's worth having the conversation . I think anything that bothers you is worth talking about. It's a tough call especially if you are very young couple.The negative side is the break up will essentially be a public event thanks to Facebook. I would totally weigh your options. Every couple is different! Some people will want to broadcast the relationship and others don't feel like having it be public knowledge. I hope you don't jump to the assumption that your partner has something to hide. We all hope that our relationships last forever but lets be realistic here! Facebook may make it more complicated when we are severing ties.


  1. I used to love the drama. One of a "long term" couple suddenly change their status to "single" then put on some status that shows they are okay with being alone "a relationship does not define me, I define it" or "You can never be happy as someones other half unless you can be happy as a whole all on your own."
    Next stage: The second one puts their status to single. Then makes some status change about "controlling or psychos"
    Third stage: "Single" goes to "It's complicated"
    Fourth: Back to "In a relationship" status. And some sappy status about "Stronger than ever" or "Nothing can tear us apart". Gotta love the drama, lol.

  2. LOL i agree the drama makes life more interesting haha love you jamie

  3. Hope you had a great start to 2012;) Much love.
