Atleast 50 people have asked me this over the last 5 years of our relationship. YES, we have argued before we have been together 5 years! Do we argue alot? No! Do we bicker sometimes? Yes!
Someone just asked me and said well it doesn’t seem like it on facebook. Well that is because everytime we argue/bicker I don’t post it on facebook! I sure don’t try to make our life look perfect but I don’t write personal things on there either.
Do you get asked this? I mean I see people writing about their arguements all of the time on facebook and I just don’t know why? Yes we look happy on facebook because we ARE happy! No it doesn’t look like we argue on facebook because I don’t post pictures of us arguing since we don’t have cameras around the house to catch us doing so.

Haha people are weird. I don’t know why FB should be an indication of whether you fight or not. Maybe your friend is used to seeing updates from the types of girls who air all of their dirty laundry on social media for attention.
Like you, yes sometimes we fight. Do I post it online for all of my friends and family to see? Hell no. Haha

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose: I just lol’ed at the thought of having a camera when we argue hihihi, that would make for some funny pictures as being Portuguese we are loud and move our arms alot lol
Fiance and I always get that, people see us play around all the time and they don’t think we argue. We have never had a huge fight but we do bicker back and forth. We can’t fight to be honest we have tried and we just look at each other and smile and laugh lol

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose: Totally agree. When SO and I are in an argument my first thought is NOT to post on facebook. I dont understand when people do that. When the argument is over, that post will still be there. (Unless its deleted, which most people dont do) lol

I agree with not posting about and documenting agruements on facebook. I never post when me and my SO fight, that would be weird I think. I remember back when I first got on facebook a friend asked if me and my SO had broken up because he was not in my profile picture. I thought that was a pretty dumb assumption, he doesn’t have to be in all my pictures. He currently isn’t, in fact I think another guy friend might be but me and my SO are fine. Facebook makes people cray cray

@newenglandgirl: Lol, I’ve gotten that too- when we both change our profile pictures we’ve been asked if we broke up. Um, no I just got bored of my last picture, lol.
@Mrs. Estep: I’ve noticed that a lot of couples go to FB with their relationship problems before even mentioning it to their SO- their SO has to comment on their FB status, “What’s wrong? What did I do?” These are also the couples that tend not to last, at least from what I’ve seen.

That is really odd, that someone would actually ask you that

I actually hate seeing people “fight” on facebook. I have a friend who ALWAYS posts things like “well I guess SOMEONE won’t be the first person to wish me happy birthday this year. Thanks to those of you who texted me tonight before bed. No point in waiting up for SOMEONE to call if he won’t be the first!!!!”…..and this was the night before her birthday so basically she was penalizing him for waiting for her ACTUAL bday!!! And did it in a way so a whooole lot of people knew about it. Passive aggressive much?

@bells: It was, it took me back after she said that. It made me think that I was making us out to be perfect on the internet. But then I thought about it again & I am sorry if it makes me look that way but I just don’t like posting so many damn personal things on there! lol

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose: Ugh, I know the feeling. I have had some snide little comments about how we seem SO happy. It is annoying, yet funny – like yes, we are that happy. Everyone bickers sometimes, but not having big blowout fights (and moreover, having the tact not to post about disagreements) is definitely not a bad thing . I think a lot of these weird type of comments stem from people trying to make themselves feel better about their own crap.

The very nerve of you to not air your dirty laundry to the cyberspace public!!!
My Fiance and I bicker, like sarcastic back and forth, but rarely full out argue. We are just that sort of people. We tease, we push but don’t explode.

LOL, people are ridiculous sometimes. I don’t like it when people post their life story on FB for all the world to see…why do any of us need to know any of that? FI and I bicker. Constantly. It’s funny, we laugh, and I’m sure people think we’re serious but we’re not. We have gotten into ‘spats’ a few times, but nothing major, where we don’t speak for days or scream at each other or anything. Even if we did fight all the time, I wouldn’t put it on FB. If I need to vent, I text one of my friends or he’ll do the same. I never try to make our life out to be perfect either, but some things are not meant for the world to know.
