Q: My girlfriend wants us to change our Facebook statuses to “In a relationship”. I like her, but I’m not into the public stuff. Is this a done deal?
This battle isn’t about status, mate. It’s about boundaries: you’re private and she’s public. Tell her that. Tell her what you want to share with the world and what you’d rather save for friends and family. And have her do the same. If there’s enough common ground there, or if you two can reach a compromise, you guys have a chance.
If not, better to know now.
