I am a pretty laid back person for the most part. I date, passively. I figure whatever happens, happens.
So imagine my amazement when I am on Facebook catching up on people’s lives this morning, and I see “Joe* is in a Relationship”.
Now, you might wonder why this is such an amazing feat. It’s not really, except that just a few weeks ago he hit me up on Plenty of Fish.
Now, you might say, “but Veruca, he met someone! Be happy for him!”
Except for a comment he wrote under all the congratulations that said “well, since we’ve been together a year, time to make it Facebook official!”
Exqueeze me? Baking Powder?
I am sorry but if you are in a relationship for a year, why are you on Plenty of Fish???
Which reminded me of an experience I had a year or so ago, when I found my friend Kaitlyn’s* boyfriend of a year, on OK Cupid!
So I ask you this: At what point do you ask your SO to take down their online profile?
Personally, if I am having sex with you, I am taking my online profile down. Apparently I am in the minority? Or is it a guy thing, keeping their toe in the water? Regardless, this is the latest example of why I have absolutely no faith or trust in men. Every day I am becoming a little more a-ok with being alone forever.
