    We have the same social group and so yea… it’d be kinda weird if we weren’t. I post more than he does BUT we do both still post and then since we use it to keep in touch with family we have all of our family as “family” Darling Husband as my married to, my mom, sis, etc.

    I guess whatever works for you works for you.

    My Fiance and I are friends on fb. We do talk a lot (obviously), but we don’t live together so we still “post” a lot on each others wall and goof around on there. I understand where you are coming from though. Personally, not being friends with him on there would make me wonder all the time since you said you have been cheated on before (through facebook ?) but I am a bit of a worry bee.

    Haha, my Darling Husband got a facebook a couple years ago, but he only has like 10 friends. He literally has it completely locked down and after the recent privacy changes, I can’t even see his page. Neither can any of his other friends. It’s pointless – he just uses mine. I keep asking him and he’s just like “I don’t want to get into using it”.

    But it does drive me crazy when I see couples post “I love you so much honeybear, you’re the bestest bestie every! Don’t eat all my saltines!”

    There is no need to post on each other’s walls if you are in the same room.

    End rant.

     Yeah, pretty much what @runsyellowlites: described, sums up our FB usage as well.

    But I’m with you on the whole constantly writing back and forth on each other’s walls/page. I don’t get it.  Either it’s all mushy mushy, or it’s dramariffic (don’t get me started on that, I HATE when ppl air their dirty laundry like that on FB), or they’re in the same effing house, facebooking back and forth. Stop it. Just stop.

    I think we’re in what I would classify as the FB generation, so it would be weird if we weren’t.  His phone was actually broken when we met, so he didn’t ask for my phone number, he asked if he could friend me.  It’s just part of our culture.

    SO and I work opposing shifts (I work 11 am – 7 pm, he works 7 pm – 7 am) so even though we live together, we don’t see each other much. He gets a lot of downtime at work so he will often get on fb and we chat in the evenings while I check my websites and blogs. It’s nice to have that — way more convenient than texting. So, yeah, being fb friends is beneficial to us.

    And we are completely guilty of the mushy romantic posts. I mean, it’s not all the time, but it happens. And I know it drives people crazy, which is why I try to keep it to a minimum, but sometimes we just can’t help ourselves ๐Ÿ™‚

    Fiance and I are facebook friends, but we never use it to talk to each other.  In Fact, we both rarely go on it anymore. 

    My last serious relationship actually blocked me and told me he deleted his, and then I found out he was cheating on me.  What a winner he was. 

    But Fiance and I are very open and have a much stronger relationship than any of our past relationships.  So I’m not worried about any drama ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’d rather see who my Fiance talks to than not see. Were definitely facebook friends. I also write on his wall maybe once a month to let him know I miss him and love him while he’s at work because he likes that. He only gets on to play the games lately but I’m on all day everyday.

    He barely checks his emails, hates computers, despises social media. So no.
