Profile pic when you're in a relationship

Hi All, What's your opinion about changing your profile pic on social networking sites to a picture with your GF just because she keeps on bugging you about it? I'm not really big on social networking. And since it's my profile, the picture posted should be mine.

I am too private to have a picture of me and my beau on Facebook. Plus, most of my beau's don't last that long anyway, so it seems like more of a hassle than it's worth. I have friends though that would change around their entire layout on their Facebook OR MySpace (back when it was IN) every time they got a new boyfriend. And then when they would break up a few weeks later ,they would have to delete all of the pictures and start all over with the new boy. *rolls eyes*. Seems like a waste of time to me!

I don't think it is necessary to post a pic of you and your lover on any profile, unless you want to of course. In my honest opinion though, it should be necessary to change your status to in a relationship with so and so IF requested. I find that some of my friends complain about their lovers not accepting their request to change their status. Are they ashamed of them? Or ashamed to be seen with them? Or how about they want to look single for the world to ravage them?

Same here. I don't mind if my boyfriend will post our picture in his profile but me even without his consent I am posting our picture in my profile and sometimes change it and then change again. haha lol. but here, i have a question. what do you think would be the reaction of my boyfriend if i change my relationship status from single to in a relationship and then invite him to accept it? do u think he will accept that? how would he react? because weve been 3 years already but our facebook has no relationship status I mean what stated there is only "single"?

It's better to stick with what you want not what your partner wants. If she/he asks you to put a picture of you together ask her/him why is it that important. My husbands profile picture for his social network page for two years was his face alone. I didn't ask him to change it to a picture of us together because I respect his decision and its his page. As long as his status was in a relationship that time that's enough for me.

I agree, it should be your picture because it's your profile. I think for them it's a sign that you don't care enough to include her in EVERY SINGLE ASPECT OF YOUR LIFE. I really don't like it when that happens. You should try talking to her about it, and explain. If she doesn't understand do what you think is right. If you relationship is great and that picture is the only thing she bugs you about you can consider changing it.
