    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!!!!!!!!!’

    About once a day I post that I love my Fiance and put at least 20 hearts before and after his name. It keeps the spark in our love life.

    Gag! I actually don’t post about our relationship on FB at all. Or our wedding for that matter. I’ve found it sets me up for comments I don’t want, such as “omg he finally proposed” or “at least you can do what you want for your wedding! mine stinks! waaah”. So yea…no lovey-dovey posts for us!

    No I do not partake in all the lovey-ness on FB… BUT I am a constant tagger of my Fiance so people probably think that is equally as annoying!

     

    Example of recent post:

    Amanda_Rae is driving through a monsoon right now in Alabama. No worries, Amanda_Rae’s Fiance is right here keeping me company by snoring in the passenger seat.

    Every once in a while, when the occasion calls for it, like after he’s sent me the occasional FB “I love you” or has a status about us/me. Overall, it’s pretty rare though. We’re both private individuals who sparingly use FB. I never update my status nor have any desire for the world to know I’m going to work or brushing my teeth or about to take a shower and run errands at Target, etc. It’s crazy how that has become a part of people’s daily routine.

    I hate this!  I feel like when you post stuff like that on facebook, you are posting it for the purpose of making sure other people see it, not the person you are posting it to.  There are lots of ways you say “I love you” that are private…private facebook message, text, email, phone call, note in lunch, etc.  The only reason you post it on facebook is so that your SI and everyone else you both are friends with knows that you are telling them that.  I think posting this stuff on facebook is some people’s way of showing off (“look at me, I’m in a great relationship!”) or something weird like that.  It’s very strange to me.  When I say “I love you” to my Fiance, I say it to him, not him and 200 of our friends.

    I am gonna be 45, Fiance is 48…and we do this quite often. Like a PP we waited a long time to find our soulmate and we really do love each other, and want the world to know it. It’s the virtual equivalent of shouting it from the rooftops. Laughing

     

    It’s not an every day thing but a couple of times a week. And sometimes we just post <3 or multiple <3 on each other’s wall. I love him and I love the virtual PDA!
