Avoid Relationship Status Limbo

Don’t be too quick on the draw when it comes to changing your Facebook relationship status. You need to make sure you and your partner are on the same digital page before broadcasting to your social circles that you’re "in a relationship,” says Beresford. As for switching back to “single,” notify your ex about your profile update (if the breakup was mutual and amicable). Take note: Removing the “in a relationship” status from your profile will automatically delete it from his. And don't use the "end of a relationship" feature offered on the new Facebook Timeline layout, advise "The Date Report" experts. To avoid the dilemma completely, consider setting your relationship status to private to avoid awkward comments or creepy “likes.” (Here's how: Go to your Facebook profile page, select "Edit Profile" or “About,” then edit "Friends and Family" from the left-hand menu and change your "Relationship Status" to "Select Relation." Save changes.)
