I know you want to tell the world how in love you are but please don’t be in a relationship with them on Facebook. Just don’t. Not only is it tacky, it also makes a potential break up that much more public and painful. Your friend from summer camp in 8th grade doesn’t need to see that your relationship is over. People you don’t know or care about don’t need to be sending you heartfelt messages asking you if you’re okay. Just do yourself a favor and keep that offline. We live in The Information Age, which can be a good and bad thing for relationships. Although it’s nice to share photos of the two of you and be affectionate on each other’s Facebook walls, it’s important to keep parts of the relationship sacred. The best moments of any love occur offline so focus on cultivating those rather than maintaining your online presence.
