When Should You Become Facebook Official

Group Therapy: When Is Too Soon to Become Facebook Official?

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

Two days ago, I went on my fourth date with a guy that I really like. Early in the date, he asked me if I wanted to be his girlfriend.  Of course I said "yes." What I want to know is it too soon to change my facebook to say "in a relationship with _____"?

Another thing to note is that I met him on a dating website and I've seen that he has logged on yesterday and today and still has not changed his status to "seeing someone." Is it too soon to change that one also? We both agreed that we wanted to be exclusive so I'm not sure what to do.

Four dates? That's pretty early for everything in my opinion. But since it was his idea, when you bring it up to him, I'm sure he'll want to change his status right away. If he doesn't, I'd ask him more about what he actually means by "being in a relationship."

I would either wait a few days, or just put it as "in a relationship" and not put who it is with. He might be so happy about it he just hasn't thought to make it "facebook official" yet.

If you feel the need to put it out there on facebook, why don't you just ask your new boyfriend if he's okay with it. You two can decide together whether or not to change all of your status' on various sites. My current bf and I didn't become facebook official until we had been together for a year, it was no one elses business before that. We also didn't post status updates about each other or do any sort of sappy wall posting. I think it made our relationship stronger to keep it off of the internet and in the real world.

I think it's okay to make it the status once you've told the people in your life that should be told in person. Although, I also don't think adding it to Facebook is completely necessary- it's always kind of a sting when you break up and have to change it back to single! I just keep my relationship status off the page to keep my privacy. The important people in my life know what's going on :)
