So for the past year I've been single and seeing multiple girls. Eventually most of the prospects dried up except for 2 girls - A local girl who I've gotten comfortable with, and a much hotter girl who lives several hours away who I've only seen a few times, but have banged and I'm still flirtatious with.
The local girl has been bugging me about changing my FB status for a couple months now, and finally today I decided to appease her....By changing my relationship status every 2 minutes to another relationship status (Widowed, divorced, civil union, etc.). When I finally set my status to "In a relationship", long-distance girl shows up and "likes" it within a minute. Now this is a girl who isn't on FB much, who I haven't spoken to in a few weeks, and who very rarely likes things I post. I'd like to think that this is her "liking" the fact that I'm pre-selected, but it could also be her saying something like "Good boy, now get lost."
I eventually felt really stupid for failing a shit-test and quietly changed my relationship status to the way it was before (Saying nothing and completely hidden). But I'm still thinking about what this could've done to my social proof with girls on my friends list, especially in regards to the long-distance girl. I'm going to lay low for a few days and see if everyone forgets this. But bottom line, do you think it hurts your value to have your relationship status displayed as a "life event" on social media? Or could you use it as a method of pre-selection to DHV? Or is it best to leave it saying nothing?
