I've found that the people who are the most insistent on proving they're in a relationship, or proving that they're SO IN LOOOOOOVE are the ones who have the rockiest relationships.

While I do have my guy on FB as a friend, we don't post pictures together nor do we tag one another on every other status. We don't even list our relationship status... those who know us know and it's really not anyone's business but our own.

I deleted the photos of me and my last ex on Facebook but not the statuses. They are interesting to look at sometimes. But I never posted a ton of photos with him. With my current bf, there are a lot, but most are in one album. I would go through and delete every photo though. I think it's weird to leave up photos of exes.

I'm divorcing my husband and I just leave them. I figure he was still a part of my life so why take them all down that is silly.

I shake my head in disbelief when I realized I had muddled through so many years of relationships without having this very important question answered.

I think the general rule of thumb is to delete them, but it's whatever. I also don't get the point of posting endless pictures with your SO or gushing about them in your status non stop. Just seems like they're trying too hard to show everyone how happy and in love they are.

why erase what happened?
seems silly to me to try and detach yourself from it unless you are having issues accepting the reality of the situation.

Happily married but DW is way more picture happy than I am.

As a result, in about 50% of the pics she posts I'm not exactly smiling, thus people get the wrong impression that I'm unhappy. I'm not unhappy...well I am only with the picture-taking itself.
