It’s possible that D and I will now have two “anniversaries” when it comes to the beginning of our relationship.
May 28th is the day we officially became a couple.
June 7th is the day we became “Facebook official” as a couple.
Yep. We made that big step and changed our relationship statuses to “in a relationship with _____”.
D is in Alabama for a week and a half on business, so we did it while on the phone that night. Sneaky little me made him do it first, so all I had to do was accept his request. It was us just being goofy dorks.
There is a lot of my family on Facebook. All my aunts and uncles, cousins, siblings, friends, parents… I’ve got a ginormous family and sometimes I feel like they all have Facebook accounts (that actually might not be far from the truth). And a lot of them are…what’s a nice way to put this…nosy. They mean well. We all live so far from each other, it’s really the only way we can be present in each other’s lives these days. It’s one thing Facebook is good for.
That being said, they are the reason I wasn’t sure if we should even make it “Facebook official.” Facebook puts everything on your timeline, so on everyone’s page it would announce: Roxanne P is now in a relationship with D.
I wasn’t sure how people would react. I’m not even sure how many of them know I’m even dating. And I think about the reactions of others a lot.
Plus, I’m still Facebook friends with my ex-in-laws.
About five minutes after the change, D’s friend ‘liked’ the change. I should add that I totally guessed it. I knew she would be. She’s the friend that has ‘liked’ everything posted about our budding relationship.
Next week we’ll be picking out engagement rings.
OH MY GOD YOU GUYS I’M KIDDING.
