Doing so provides the opportunity for discussions and explanations and removes the presence of judgments and misunderstandings.
The early stages of a new relationship can bring you to an awkward and confusing in-between period.
While information about dating history is something that should be shared and exchanged, it should be on the right terms. Instead of making assumptions based on pictures, Facebook profiles, and statuses, share this information with each other in person.
Introducing someone you’re dating to your family and friends is always a big step in a relationship.
The moral of the story is that it is easy to offend and be offended by a harmless status or comment on Facebook.
Rather than subject yourself to the possibility of examining and overanalyzing every verbal action that this new interest takes on Facebook, do not add them quite yet.
The next thing you know you are looking into their past relationships and making judgments about whom they were with and what went wrong.
You also may not be quite ready to share information about your own failed relationships with your new love interest.
If you have just started dating someone, the last thing that you want to see is pictures of them with their arm around a previous boyfriend or girlfriend.
Harmlessly Facebook stalking a new crush is a slippery slope and things can escalate, quickly.
The post sounds flirty and alludes to the fact that there is someone else interested in them, too.
You’re face becomes hot with jealously and anger, and you immediately send a questioning text to your new love interest demanding an explanation.
Their response is that you were not exclusive, and they immediately get the impression that you are the crazy jealous type.
