It’s bad enough I have to get questions from friends and relatives on a regular basis about my marital status or if I have “anyone special” in my life; it would probably be even worse if I made public on my Facebook page if I was single, in a relationship, married or the ever popular “it’s complicated.” To me, my dating life is personal. I don’t ask people why they are married or in a relationship and I’d prefer people not ask me if I am or not in one myself!
I leave my personal life to people’s imagination; it’s better that way and adds a little to the mystique I suppose of this exciting life that people think I lead!
My advice to you – keep your personal life off of the web. No one needs to know who you are dating, when you are dating them, or whether or not you are single or in a relationship.
Especially if you are looking to secure clients or business through the web, changing your status from single to it’s complicated to in a relationship can give people the wrong signals about you and the person you’d like to be perceived as.
Do what I do – leave the relationship status blank!
