, it's the most classic Facebook dating dilemma: Who pulls the trigger to make a relationship official on Facebook first?
It would be embarrassing to declare yourself to be in a relationship if your (you thought) significant other doesn't reciprocate.
Dating is as much about maintaining healthy and safe boundaries as it is about intimacy — at least at first — and social networking makes that harder than ever.
It's not dissimilar to dating someone who works in your office; you can't control the exposure you'll have, and that can be a recipe for disaster.
You've hardly seen any updates on his profile since you had a fight — is he hiding the updates from you, is he so depressed that he's not engaging, or is it just a coincidence?
Guys, however, tend to be somewhat similar when they're interested and ready for a serious relationship.We wouldn't look at all of those as serious threats, but we all know from experience that one threat is real: Facebook makes dating far more complicated than it used to be.You can use Facebook's privacy settings to mitigate the pains, and you can even make an impossible-to-maintain rule that you won't accept friend requests from people you're dating, but it's almost guaranteed that Facebook will somehow catch up to your budding relationship and challenge it with some confusion eventually.He posted on your wall four times today — does that mean he's too into you?She keeps posting status updates about the cute guys in her office — should you be worried that you'll be outdone?
