My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have been together nearly 3 years. He’s 40, I’m nearly 30.
During that time he has had a facebook account (and I do not). On his account, he has no relationship status. I mean, it doesnt say he’s single, or in a relationship etc, it says something like ‘no relationship information available’.
When I asked him about it he says its ‘stupid to have a status’ and its ‘no ones business’. He is a very private person and has a private account (no info unless your a friend).
What do you think of this?

LLMMCC: The less information you post on Facebook the better.

julies1949 is right. Sounds like a smart man.

LLMMCC: I would be cranky. People who are committed to a relationship are happy to announce it.
To the first two posters: your privacy isn’t being compromised by telling Facebook you’re in a relationship. (And this is coming from someone who refuses to put her date of birth, education or work place on facebook)

I agree, It makes me insecure. I am already a bit insecure though. It makes me feel like he must not want an ex to see he’s with someone or something

That wouldn’t make me cranky, because that’s my situation exactly. I have a facebook account, FH does not, and I don’t have a relationship status on my account. It doesn’t mean anything at all in terms of my relationship, I just don’t like posting personal information online.

I would be fine with it. But if it said single, now that’s something to be cranky about.

I can see a guy thinking nothing of it, but if you brought it up & he knew it was bothering you, it would upset me if he didn’t change it to make you feel better about it.

It’s not that big of a deal to me. Facebook does not validate a relationship or make it any more real.

If it said single then I’d be concerned. If you don’t have facebook though I can understand why he hasn’t put the relationship status as he can’t link to you anyway.

I prefer to gave no status like that on Facebook.

LLMMCC: I think it’s smart and not a big deal.

We didn’t have a relationship status on our accounts for years, we just couldn’t be bothered. People KNEW we were together, Facebook is JUST Facebook, why make it more important than it really is?
Its kind of like, how did ANYONE ever know that a person was in a relationship before the days a facebook status told them so?
Take a deeeeep breath and relax sweety. Unless you’ve never met any of his family and friends I’m sure you have nothing to worry about. 😀

LLMMCC: I HATE FB. I don’t have a page, I don’t want a page, I’m sick of those words entering every single conversation. I HATE IT. That said, I’d be super cranky about that. He doesn’t have to say who he’s in a relationship with. Agree that less info on that stupid site the better, but that one word is fine and he should announce it. It’s not like a lot of personal info is going to snowball from that.
