And, since you don’t want to make any assumptions based on someone else’s approval (or disapproval), don’t even ask.In order to go into the date truly open to discovering whether or not this person is a match for you, it’s best to go in with a completely open and unbiased mindset.So, be courageous—it’s one of the sexiest qualities after all.Relationship coach Marni Battista explores a relatively new area to deal with in the dating world — Facebook.But I do not like private messages and pick up lines that make me feel like I’m a bar star. (Plus, it’s bloody embarrassing when things in that area change.) So what’s the point of FB even offering “relationship status”?Maybe this is a potential dating site, more like a jazzy lounge, not so much a bump and grind bar.Dating with Dignity has come up with some important dos and don’ts regarding how to deal with Facebook when it comes to dating.
When it comes to dating, Facebook can be the new “elephant in the room.” And, it’s your choice to make it a BIG issue or a small one.
While we’ve debated the timing of this conversation frequently at Dating with Dignity, it’s clear that men and women have a different “value” around the status-change dilemma.
Men we interview say that the change should come after or near the six-month mark, while women tend to favor a change in status around three months.
What’s most important is that you have the conversation, understand why it’s important to both of you, be willing to compromise, and come up with a total win-win solution together.
Don’t: Do not friend someone immediately after talking to them online, or even after dates one, two or three. You’ll make yourself crazy if you begin Facebook-stalking someone and interpreting every single comment he makes or status update he posts.
