Because I can.  πŸ™‚  I spent 15 years with a man who barely held my hand and certainly never let me know that he loved me without prompting. 

This time around, I will let my love fly wherever it wants.  It’s not just on facebook, it’s also via text, whatsapp, in person, on the phone, at a party, in the street…wherever.  πŸ™‚

Not everyone is being an attention whore.  Some are just celebrating what is finally a well-deserved and completely fulfilling love for someone who returns it in kind.  πŸ™‚

@GDub:  I’m with you. FB is a public forum, people are going to post what they like and there ate good chances you won’t agree with it but that’s what it is and if it really annoys you then block the offender.

I’ve been on both sides of this. I’ve been guilty………and I’ve also been slightly irked when other people do it. I’ve kind of taken a break from sharing much on FB anyway so my friends don’t get to see the FB PDA πŸ™‚

There is a difference to me in it being every once in a while when they do something sweet and when EVERY SINGLE STATUS is about how wonderful *insert awful pet name* is, and how much they love each other, and how perfect they are and…. gag. Of course its always better when it is the people who have been dating all of two days.

I must admit I’d take the love updates over the usual bitching and whining ANYDAY!

Gah, I’m with you OP. The “I have the best husband in the world, OMG I just love him so much!” posts aren’t necessary in my opinion. Especially after they just finished telling me what an ass their husband has been lately.

Then again, it’s Facebook and people will post whatever they please.

generally think it’s very sweet when I see some couples doing this (but I agree that some take things a bit too far in a public forum for my personal level of comfort.)

Darling Husband is definitely not a fan of it.  Last year on his birthday, I wrote something about how wonderful and amazing he is, and he was pretty uncomfortable with it. So, this year, I didn’t even wish him a happy birthday on his FB page. Since he knows I like it, however, and since I was a little disappointed when he didn’t use FB to say anthing particularly special to me on my birthday last year, this year he did.  That was enough for me for awhile. πŸ™‚

@chasesgirl:  I agree. I actually think it’s kind of sweet when it’s uncharacteristic of the person. When they update something lovey-dovey every 3 minutes, though, it seems insincere & is just kind of annoying.

I wrote on his wall a few times declaring my love (so to speak, obviously not like that) when we were very close to the wedding because that’s how I was feeling. And I think once after I wrote, “I love my husband so much!” I wasn’t updating it to my status but I was writing it on his wall.

My Mother-In-Law got mad at me because she felt I didn’t do this ENOUGH with my Darling Husband. She felt that if I wasn’t showing it on FB, that must mean I don’t love him enough. *facepalm*

Needless to say, she and I are no longer connected on FB. Too much stress. I tell/show my man I love him when I SEE him. That’s enough for us!

I’m not a fan of it either when the same person is posting something every hour.

Every now and then is one thing, but every 10 minutes is another.
