hey all,

would you expect your significant other to post that you guys are 'in a relationship' and post up 'lovey dovey' pictures on social networking sites like myspace, facebook etc.?

Whether I would expect it or not depends on that person's character. I would certainly not appreciate or allow it,...

what if the 'lovey dovey' pics weren't intimate ones, just a shot of both of your smiling faces?

At best it's a false sense of security in exchange for your personal safety and privacy (much like the issues surrounding ID cards, TSA, etc).

umm...its just facebook. anyway, what's the worse that can happen if you select 'in a relationship with "so-and-so"' in your relationship staturs?

8 Name: Secret Admirer : 2008-02-11 14:18 ID:15rted4b

Perhaps I'm a cynic, but I wouldn't expect her to give a fuck whether the internet cares about our relationship or not.

I probably wouldn't put a picture of us up. I don't want to be thought of as being part of a couple, I'm an individual. If somebody adds me on facebook/whatever they know me as an individual so I don't see why I should have lovey-dovey pictures up. Also, I don't like to see public displays of that cheesy level of lovey-dovery pictures of other people, so I figure I won't post any of those pictures of me. I generally have as little information as possible online anyway, so people can't even see if I'm single or in a relationship. If they're my friend, they know anyway.

Why not just force your lover to tattoo your name on his ass?
Maybe have him wear a dog collar, too.

if everyone knows anyway, what's so hard about just clicking the correct status ie. in a relationship when filling out your profile. isn't it the natural thing to do?

And what so hard about typing your name and email in the textbox labelled "Name" and "Link"? Isn't it the natural thing to do?

13 Name: Secret Admirer : 2008-02-12 13:51 ID:Sg4EHjX3

aren't you people proud of your significant others? i don't see why you wouldn't want to show them off unless:

-you wanna appear single to attract more attention and flirt

do you post pictures of you with your pals/friends/buddies/siblings/parents?

if yes, then what's the difference with posting those pics and pics of you and your partner?

I don't give out any information. My facebook is my name, and eventually I added a profile picture. There is no other information; no age, no sex, no relationship status or sexual orientation.

i'd expect at least an acknowledgment of status. i'm okay with not putting up pictures.

This thread is like old versus young. The young feel the need to prove their love, the old already know it's there.

If he/she is dating you, it's usually a sign that they care for you. If having a picture of the two of you on the Internet defines your relationship, it was fragile and meaningless anyway.

hmm its not that the internet thing DEFINES the relationship, but rather it's like a very natural add on.

It's PDA = public display affection

posting pictures is just fun, IMO. i always post pictures of me hanging out with my buddies, playing guitar hero, going to the football game, etc. some people post pics of themselves with their gf/bf. its just fun.

I've done it.

It's done for the same reason couples kiss in front of their friends. To make them jealous.
