Relationship status!

Ok, so there was this time back in school where people would refuse to let others know if they were attached…like only very few of their best friends would know..and they rest would eventualy find out..and then reactions would be

“OMG, X is going out with Y????”

And then you would confront X, and he/she will keep denying any sort of attraction to Y…despite more than half the school knowing about it…and despite it being so obvious.

Kinda like a “others-should-not-know-i-am-attached”phobia!!!

But now, its the exact opposite! People are dying to let us know of their “no-more-single” statuses…and the moment he/she asks the other person out, relationship statuses change on facebook!

And sometimes, say when you are replying to some thread or commenting on some photo, you find everyone’s profile pic consists of them with their partners…And i know quite a few *cough cough* who actually feel out of place when commenting on them….some who think that right now their only option is to marry a tree!!!

And so why is everyone suddenly so intent on letting others know of their relationship statuses? Something that i can only attribute to us getting old! Any other reasons?
