How is a Relationship “Complicated” on Facebook…!!!


I love Facebook and admit I spend a lot of time on there.  It's a personal space for me to talk with my friends and family. I've been noticing a lot of people have the "It's Complicated" Facebook dating status.  It got me thinking; why does a relationship have to be complicated? Better yet, why in the world do you want to be in a relationship that is complicated?

When I see/hear it's complicated I immediately think that individual is in some BS type of situation they clearly don't need to be in or it wouldn't be complicated. What kind of BS situation am I referring to? Well, let's see. I'm thinking of one of the following:

  1. Someone is involved with an individual that is married. [Sugar-daddy, Sugar-mommy relationships]
  2. You're dating someone who isn't quite ready for a commitment, but you are and you're your hanging on hoping they'll change their mind.
  3. You got cheated on (or you did the cheating) and now your relationship is on shaky grounds.

Why do we hang on to these complicated relationships? Are we waiting for a love fairy to come down and magically un-complicate the situation for us?

We are in the New Year [2010], I propose all those with these "It's Complicated" Facebook dating status'; take a real hard look into what's making their situation complicated and determine if this is a situation that is truly good for them and if it's not; have enough balls to end it and move on.

I don't know about you, but it's my goal to live a life that is as uncomplicated as possible.

Who needs the added drama? I certainly don't.

Do you?

Haha that's a good one. I've also wondered the same. If it's that complicated, no need to even state it. lol.

lmao... Its funny Mac, but last year i had its complicated as my status on facebook. The reason? Your second point. But like u said, who needs drama?. Thank God I met a real man who has the two things i need. An open mind and the ability to go after what he wants.

I'm quite late on commenting as I saw your blog on 20sb, very funny post as I've wondered same... I too assume they have drama in their lives and having the status on fb just lets everyone else know you'll be selecting "single" in a few days.

I agree, I do not need the added drama.
