Okay - I am looking for opinions on making a relationship 'facebook official'. How do you go about bringing it up? When do you do it?
Apparently I have a boyfriend but it doesn't feel real to me because we are both listed as single on our FB profiles. Okay, I spend a lot of time on FB and it is a huge part of my life, so I know i put too much importance on it and everything else, but I just get the feeling it's not real or like he is embarrassed of me or wants to seem available to other girls, if he wants to keep it off fb?
What are your thoughts/experiences?

When we 'officially' started dating one of us made the joke that we should put it up on FB, so we did!
Maybe bring it up casually and see what he says?
Sorry I'm not much help!
Eta hit send too early!

Just do it? Like change it to 'in a relationship with..' then he will have to accept or reject it. If he rejects, kick his *** the the kurb, lol.

Yeah, either just change yours and hope he accepts lol
Or just joke around saying "well its obviously not offical because FB doesnt know yet" hahaha

Honestly Id be wary of a man who doesnt want to shout it from the rooftops. Several of my friends have been seeing men who later turned out to have girlfriends lately. Not making reference to their relationship on FB and not being introduced to family seems to be a big red flag. Taking their phone to the loo or having two phones are definitely ominous too!

I have been in a relationship for 16yrs and we are not facebook official.
Does he spend as much time on there as you? Is he a private person in general? If not and he shares everything on facebook then I would just add it and see what he does.
ETA My dh and I are both private people, so being facebook official has just never crossed our minds...

I've been seeing a wonderful man for a few months now.. a few days after our first proper date when we had established we wanted to be together he asked me if we could change our facebook status's to in a relationship with each other, he said he wanted to shout it from the roof and let the world know .. I felt maybe it was too soon but I felt the same way and decided I did want people to know and didn't care what they thought, so we did. BUT if he hadn't of asked I probably would have just left it awhile longer. Maybe just casually ask him if he would like to change it first.
And yep I'd be a little cautious of someone who seems to want to hide it too, but have a chat with him about it first he may just be waiting for you.

Well we just joked about it and did it.
I once had someone I was seeing invite me to be in a relationship on facebook without telling me and it freaked me out. But that was probably because we'd only been seeing each other for a few weeks and definitely weren't in a relationship!
I think we saw "so and so is now in a relationship" in one of our mini feeds and she said "hey, we should make it facebook official too *fake laugh*" and I was like, alrighty then!

Maybe joke about it if you don't want to come out and ask..
How about "we have been spending so much time together lately, I'll have to change my relationship status so my friends don't think of drop off the earth" then laugh and see what he says?
