Facebook abuse is rampant! We all know at least one person whose status updates never cease to annoy or bewilder. Or how about that chick who is constantly inviting you to engage in a mafia war? And seriously, I am thisclose to defriending a friend from junior high who insists on tagging photos of me in braces. But Facebook abusers aren’t just hurting the innocent — they’re also seriously ruining their own dating game. Check out the 10 biggest dating mistakes people make on Facebook.
1. Your Relationship Status Is Giving Me Whiplash. There’s nothing more exciting and dramatic than an off-and-on relationship. You fall madly in love — update status to “in a relationship.” You get in a big fight! — update status to “it’s complicated.” You have awesome makeup sex — back to “in a relationship.” But then you break up in the morning — suddenly “single.” But then he sends you roses two months later and begs for you back! Guess who’s “in a relationship”? Congratulations, your love life sounds exciting — your manically flip-flopping Facebook status updates, however, are embarrassing.
2. The Royal “We.” Oh hai. Did Facebook start a special section for couples? No? Then why do all of your updates use “we” instead of “I”? “We loved last night’s ‘Modern Family’!” Ugh, stop it.
3. Hint, Hint, Hint. Using your status update to send someone a cryptic message is way creepy. It’s also way obvious to every single one of your friends that you are sending a message to someone, even though we may not know who. It is also sending a great message to other dudes — that you’re too immature to be direct and not play games.
