A friend asked for my help because his girl friend refused to declare their relationship on Facebook. Her reasons was that she just broke up with her ex-boyfriend and did not feel comfortable to declare a new relationship so soon.
He continued telling me that his girl friend has introduced him to her best friends in real life and she has also scheduled to let her parents meet him. Yet, all these were not as important as declaring their relationship on Facebook. He was upset. Not only he picked fight twice in a week, he also kick her out of his house after the second fight.
How important is it to have " XXX is in a relationship with XXX" on Facebook? It is about principle, he said. Is it the same principle with wearing ones wedding ring? If so, then the principle means to reassure your love one by telling the world "don't even think about it, I am already taken".
