    It's only Facebook FFS. I'd rather not display all my personal stuff on there either.

    Does the relationship status say SINGLE or is it just bank?

    Yeah. It is only facebook. BUT it's also giving open oppertunities for someone to hit on him and stuff, cause he's single.

    I would have kicked up a fuss. But I'm a jealous and possesive *****. :mad:

    Nope, just had an anti-homophobia poster on my sig. You can still be straight and against homophobia
    That is so true - but people always just assume you are homosexual if you take a strong anti-homophobic stance!

    maybe he has relatives on there that he doesn't want to know or something?

    have you asked him why he doesn't want it?

    lol, yeah I know. Had several people message me saying they were surprised I had a gf back when I had that poster up. Ah well, I dont really care what people on an online forum mistake my sexuality to be :P

    i would jump stright to him being a player, it also is more than its only facebook
    ...unless hes hate it, you forced it upon him (or his peers), he never uses it, then you could understand his point.

    he prob liked to see how girls behave without knowing hes with someone, when i was in a relationship for 18 months, i had changed so much, i was curious!
    is he 'single" or not put anything down?

    lol nice one...it depends on how much you guys go on fb...if it's not key to your communication then who cares...if you talk loads on it then shouldn't what you guys say to each other be more important? oh, and also...um...possible commitment issues? putting it on fb makes it official for the world to see...

    I'm in the same boat as you and his set to 'single', it's annoying but I don't say anything because it's not really worth arguing over.

    Having said that it's not like I have asked him and he has refused so...meh

    tbh I'd be well annoyed if my bf said that he was engaged to a GIRL mate of his that I didn't even know, or if he was listed as single. I'd smack him right in his gob.

    when i asked him (as a joke, not interegating) who he was married to, he told me it was this girl he used to go to school with...not even a close friend

    I really think some people need to look more closely at the point.

    Yes, if you treat Facebook like it's real then that's stupid. I don't think this thread is about Facebook, really. I think it's about the OP being concerned generally about whether or not her boyfriend is ashamed to be with her. He's got this whole other side of his life he's not sharing with her and he won't change his status because 'it doesn't matter'; well, if it doesn't matter, why won't he change it if it's such a meaningless thing to worry about? Is he hiding something? Is he ashamed to say he's with her?

    Before I get yelled at or whatever, I do think that on the whole these worries are silly and that the OP's boyfriend is probably a nice guy who has NO IDEA that his Facebook relationship status is causing his gf so much worry and doubt. But she says they've been through a rough patch and she's probably feeling very insecure and unsure about the relationship which means that little issues are becoming much bigger. So, give the girl a break. The issue isn't about facebook. The issue is the OP's general feelings about the relationship.

    OP, you need to talk to your boyfriend and really explain that he is upsetting you. I personally feel that this is a small part of a much bigger issue which is bothering you and you need to talk it out. Good luck :hugs:

    Why do you want to let your whole crew on facebook know about your relationship? What if it goes pear shape?

    Or maybe he's wanting to ...
