Half of my friends insist on keeping your dating life off of the social media page, while others think a relationship isn’t truly real until you’ve announced it to your Facebook friends.
I can see both sides of the argument, but at the end of the day, my thoughts are that you shouldn’t make your relationship Facebook official – ever. A lot of our lives play out on the internet, and crafting little posts about bae are cute. Declaring your love online isn’t the issue, it’s what comes with it. Are you ready for the full on digital press conference that’s about to go down in your comments section?
Casual dating So, are you still in the non-exclusive stage of casual dating where hearts are fluttering with affection, but nothing’s too sure just yet? This doesn’t mean you’re in a relationship; it means you’re both helping each other with sexual frustration.
Serious relationships tend to be monogamous and long-term—or at least conducted with that intention in mind.
When you think about it, it literally doesn’t mean anything. A lot of the thought on making it Facebook official is that EVERYONE knows they’re in a relationship, so they’re less likely to cheat. Do you hate yourself a little for thinking what you just thought?
I hate to admit it, but cheaters will cheat no matter what it says on their profiles. 15) If you don’t show your status when you’re single, why change it when you’re in a relationship?
It could also be that you’re having fun, and taking a break from dating, but still want people to do things with. Casual dating doesn’t mean you have to sleep with everyone you talk to.
On any given day, you might meet someone new, or stop talking to someone you’ve been talking to for months.
