 Why You Should Secretly Update your Relationship Status on Facebook

Okay, each to its own, but according to my personal opinion, it isn’t always wise to share your relationship status on Facebook. Why? Because…

  • For one, news and gossip spread like wildfire on the social media website, and many are prone to get jealous of your newfound happiness and spread rumors to destabilize it. Trust me, the human conscience can plunge into some abysmal depths.

  • Not all relationships last for years and years. Unfortunately, fate isn’t kind to all of us. If you’re changing your relationship status every few weeks, it’s going to open you up to some easily unavoidable judgments. The time you’re going to want to heal mentally and emotionally is going to be scooped up by some girl sticking her nose in your business.

If people and their judgments don’t bother you, then by all accounts, follow the strings of your heart. If you have questions about how to change your relationship status on Facebook, please reach to us in the comments below.
