How to Know if He “Likes” You: Check Facebook

All and Online Dating University released an info graphic to sort out all the ways that Facebook affects personal relationships. The full data visualization is on Mashable, but the portion that focuses on romantic relationships can be seen below. While I appreciate the efforts, I have to be honest, it’s a bit of downer, focusing more on the negative aspects like jealousy, public humiliation and stalking exes.

Now you know that I’m no Suzy Sunshine, but what about all the positive things Facebook does for your romantic life? Consider this spin backlash to the Facebook backlash, or blame it on one of my fave bloggers Jen Kirsch of BlondeBronzedTwentySomething for starting a string on Twitter to celebrate how you know when a guy is into you, but today I am inspired to write about the positive aspects of Facebook. In addition to giving us the ability to flirt with multiple prospects and fact check people we meet on dating sites it can even show us if a guy really “likes” us. How, you ask? Just read between the lines:

1. He writes on your friends’ walls for their birthdays

2. He Facebook chats you the moment you log on

3. He tags himself in your photo albums

4. He tags you in his Facebook places updates

5. He defriends his ex in a show of solidarity

6. He makes the two of you his profile picture

7. He writes overly optimistic status updates after your dates (ex: “Never noticed how beautiful the NYC skyline is at dusk” or “Does anyone else love that Raise Your Glass song?”)

8. His mom friends you (see MILFS – Moms I Like to Facebook)
