Advice on Dating Someone Addicted to Facebook

Geek Community: Need Advice on Dating a Facebook Addict

This all-too-familiar question was shared by KaliforniaGurl in our Tech Dating 101 group.

I'm dating a new guy and he is great. Seeing stars, smelling wildflowers, and generally loving life. I'm thrilled to be completely comfortable with him and can see this becoming a healthy long term relationship. Here's the catch: I think it would be safe to classify him as a Facebook addict...or oversharer. He's a jovial, friendly guy in real life and his online life is no exception — he has more than 1,000 friends and shares everything we do (save our most intimate moments) via pictures, mobile uploads and status updates. I'm on Facebook and have a few hundred friends, but I like to keep my private life private and mostly use it to keep in contact with old friends. I don't mind being tagged in photos here and there (I've set my privacy settings, tag away!), and the occasional status nod to how much he enjoys being with me is adorable, but I'm uncomfortable with how interactive he is online. We've had a healthy conversation about it and he understands I don't want my life blasted all over the Internet, but I also don't want to ask him to change who he is and what he enjoys. Do you have any advice for dating someone with a completely different online attitude?
