Facebook, A Place For Couples

Catherine Strawn / December 31, 2008

Don’t you just hate it when a friend starts dating a guy and she does absolutely everything with him? She can’t go to the grocery store without him, she can’t do her laundry without him, and she certainly can’t update her Facebook status without including his name. We’ve been noticing that a bunch of couples are doing joint status updates, i.e., “John and Jane are ringing in the New Year!” or “Kelly and Josh just got the most amazing espresso machine.” We don’t like it. Isn’t the internet the last refuge for lonely singles?
