When Facebook was still relatively new, being a "Facebook Official" couple was all the rage - if you weren't, it seemed seedy. "WHAT ARE THEY TRYING TO HIDE?" said all those teenage girls with no lives (psh, totally not me...).Nowadays, not only can you hide your status, but no one seems to give a crap: friends marry friends, it's complicated, and you can be in open relationships. It is rather fun to see who out of touch friends are with and I've definitely done my fair share of Facebook digging after a faraway friend gets into a new relationship.
Back in high school when I was in a relationship, I did the "In a Relationship with..." thing, but I quickly got rid of the status all together after my significant other and I broke up when I got to college. It seemed too public for me to display something like that and I wanted to experience dating without everyone knowing what I was up to.
A few years later, I find myself in the first settled relationship since then. It'll probably never make the Facebook wires, mostly because I don't take it too seriously besides some good ol' stalkings.
Do you display your relationship status on Facebook? Do you find these statuses more annoying and petty or are they simply fun for you? Or is your Facebook status true to your actual relationship status?
