It’s Complicated…WTH Does That Mean?

Dating & Relationships / September 6, 2012

I see it all the time, “It’s complicated,” on people’s Facebook pages.  I often wonder, what exactly does that mean?  I don’t know why Facebook even gives you the option of “It’s Complicated” as a relationship status?  What the hell is so “complicated?”  Either you are in a relationship or your aren’t.





I wonder if “It’s Complicated” for women who use this as their relationship status means, “I’m just a booty call or a side line hoe and even though I wanna be his girl, I can’t put that I’m in a relationship on Facebook because he won’t approve it.”

For men I wonder if, “It’s Complicated” means that “I am separated from my wife.  It is not a legal separation but I moved out and now I’m screwing other women and my wife, occasionally, too.”  Or perhaps that “I am screwing my baby momma and we aren’t “technically” in a relationship but “it’s complicated” covers the fact that she thinks we are…kinda.”

If you ask me, “It’s complicated” makes you look indecisive and shady.  You are giving the impression that you can’t really get it together and you don’t know what you want.  You would probably be better off not having a relationship status at all.

Look, we are all adults here so be honest about what you have going on. Either you are with someone or your not?  All that “complicated” stuff is for the birds.  If you were in a relationship and it’s not “exactly” over, then don’t change your status until you are done.  Why would you want to be in limbo and better than that, why look like a Facebook idiot? Starting today, I am going to need you to, Get Your Life and Get It Together!

Drives me nuts when I see that as a status. I agree, either you are in a relationship or your not. It also irriates me when couples have a little fight and then immediately go change their status to single. If Facebook did anything for the world is show you how mature people really are lol.

Thanks for stopping by Theresa’s Mixed Nuts. Following you on Network Blogs 🙂

I just shake my head when I see people with that on their page. It’s complicated is code for Hot Mess. Either you’re together or you’re not, no middle ground. The worst is when one person accuses the other of cheating on Facebook, airing their dirty laundry for everyone to comment on, then they bounce from “it’s complicated” to “in a relationship/married.” If you’re that unstable that you can’t be adult enough to not argue on FB, maybe you need to be single.

I hate hate hate that phrase. Why do people post something that suggests there relationship is unstable on such a public forum, and whats worse is that people proudly proclaim it like its something to be proud of. I wouldn’t be advertising that my relationship is “complicated”
