    My status is usually semi-mushy for anniversaries and valentines day. We are LDR so sometimes when we’re actually together I’ll post something like “on a date with the boyfriend <3”, but that’s only every 2-3 months. But never the “<3 <3  <3 u r the luv of my life <3 <3 <3 omg im so n luv” ten times a day. I kinda feel like the people who constantly have to say that are the people who are trying to convince themselves that they’re in love.

    I don’t really care about others doing it but I don’t, I do write it on my FI’s wall once in a blue moon (Pretty much only when we’re apart for long periods of time)

    I see him enough in person and would much rather text him if he is at work then go through Facebook any day. I think of facebook of just a way to re conect with people and keep in contact, I don’t like putting all my business out there like that lol PDA ewwww!

    OK, will own up that I posted one of these just the other day. In my defence, I don’t think i ever have before. Fiance had gone into work after a night of checking on me to make sure I didn’t have meningitis (had a SUPER-bad reaction to doing hot yoga) – literally checking back and stomach as I drowsed to make sure the rash around my eyes hadn’t spread anywhere else. Did not want to post all those details on Facebook so just posted “Myname <3s Hisname – that is all”

    Had a HUGE amount of my friends like it – I was super surprised because I thought that Fiance would be the only one. I think the secret is to not do it too often. I’m not a hugely emotionally expressive person in public so I think my friends took it as sweet, rather than sickly.

    Uhh no, my friends who are dating always post ‘I <3 you’s’ and ‘Your beautiful <3’ on each others facebook walls.

    They live together, they can tell each other in person as they see each other all day. I can see both of their posts with their nonsense, and they can’t love each other as much as they make out to believe on facebook as they have lately broken up (then back together a week later)

    True love doesn’t need to be advertised. In fact if you feel the need to publicise it, I usually smell a rat (which is why celebrity relationships don’t last, except those who keep ultra private)

    I do mention our anniversary on facebook – but I don’t say I love you to my SO via facebook, I just mention the occassion in passing, that’s totally fine as it’s like a birthday, a special day 🙂

    I’ll say this: I prefer the silly, sweet “I love you’s” to the barrage of “FML’s” and “FAIL” b.s. out there. How quickly, carelessly and easily we soaked those negative over-exaggerated terms into our everyday vernacular. FML? Really? This, typically from the person on the computer, with electricity, and a house, and food with which to have the strength to gripe about the latest slight upon their ego? Yyyyyyeah. Relax. 😉

    Only on our anniversary and it’s never gag worthy. I think last years was “Thanks for tolerating me for 6 years. ILY!”.

    I don’t make my status about how much I love my husband or anything…some people do and they are pretty much straight hidden from my feed haha. I did make my status the other day “Making homemade tomato soup in mugs with a broiled cheese/bread top for *husband’s rap nickname* (its a joke lol) who is not feeling so hot. Be jealous I’m not your wife lol.

    I never post I love you with a ton of hearts. But I do post a lot about how thankful I am for my husband and my life quite a bit. They are for sure quite mushy and I’m perfectly comfortable with it. 🙂

    Fi and I are LDR and he is in the military and deploys often.  I do it, but not very often.  Usually I’ll post 100 days till wedding or got marriage certificate today, but even those don’t really have I love you.  Every now and then I’ll put that I love him and he is the bestest thing since sliced bread.

    What gets on my nerves is people who live together who write on each other’s wall all.the.freaking.time.  If he is the best ever, why don’t you walk to the next room and tell him instead of spending all your time on facebook?  And military SO’s who every 5 minutes update how much they miss him, how they love him, and how hard it is.  Yes, it is very tough, but stop dwelling on it and do something to make the time go by! The rest of us do support you, but we can only tell you that we’re here for you so often then we just write you off as an attention seeker.  Now shut-up! Grr.  Okay.

    One person on my FB friends is constantly doing this, posting statuses about “how amazing my hubby is!” and “had soooo much fun shopping with hubby tonight!” and whatever. Any time he goes away for a weekend she writes on his wall every day “I love you! I miss you!”

    I just don’t get it. I occasionally post something like “Flowers on the table when I got home from work…best future husband ever.” or something, but the simpering, flowery crap? Never. I also cannot fathom why you would want all of your and his Facebook friends to see you say “I love you! I miss you!” If you miss him that much, send him a text, call him, email him, something. We don’t all need to know about it.

    It’s weird because for this particular couple, every time she posts, she gets about 10 people or more who “like” it. Seems like a grab for attention to me, or to show off how happy she is, or to be validated, or something.

    DH never logs into his FB so he wouldn’t see it anyway. Sometimes I might say ‘thanks to DH for delicious meal’ or something to that effect, but never the mushy ones. There’s a couple on mine who do that constantly  – hearts and all – and it’s annoying. They’ll even do it from the SAME ROOM, really? You couldn’t just turn and say ‘I luv u so much mushy pumpkin pie face<3 <3 <3!!!!!!!!!’
